New fashion boutique promises to make the clothes you want


A new fashion boutique has launched in Cockermouth with a fresh twist - if you can’t find any clothes you like they’ll print you a new design on the spot.

Charlie Carlin opened Voodoo in Market Place this week with the aim of bringing something fresh to men and women’s fashion.

And if you can’t find something you like on the shelf Charlie will design it for you.

He has equipped the shop with the latest technology enabling Voodoo to print virtually any design on to most fabrics ranging from t-shirts to jute bags and baseball caps.

The venture has been made possible with the financial backing of Enterprise Answers.

Charlie said: “We’ve only been open for a few days and the initial response has been a bit overwhelming. It seems like the whole of Cockermouth has already popped in for a look.”

With support from Michelle Moore at Enterprise Answers, Charlie was able to quickly pull his business proposition together and despite the premises needing extensive repairs, he was soon open for business.

Michelle said: “Charlie is bringing a new concept to Cockermouth and the local area offering bespoke clothing design and printing, from outfits that can be worn everyday to those with specific purpose such as events and special occasions.

“It has been great working with Charlie, seeing the progress he has made with the business and now seeing the boutique trading. I look forward to watching the business grow and gain the reputation it rightly deserves.”
