Disco Queen Collection: Be A Queen With A Heart Of Glittery Gold

Sashay into something cool and warm this winter, with Disco Queen‘s debut collection of T-shirts, sweats and hoodies.

As temperatures plummet, Disco Queen are on hand to keep you warm with their debut collection of T-shirts, sweats, hoodies and tote bags, making Queens of all descriptions feel fabulous. 

Disco Queen’s Founders, Nicolas Rider and Stéphane Flesch – have partnered with akt charity to donate 50% of all profits from sales for the next 6 months, supporting youth LGBTQI people who are at risk of homelessness, or homeless already.

Disco Queen started out as an idea for a tattoo for Nicolas, art-worked by his partner, Stéphane into a suitable inking, and it was carefully etched into Nicolas’s skin in a Berlin-based tattoo studio.

The tattoo started to get noticed and praised amongst kings and queens on the streets of London and in Berlin, where the couple live. Inspired by the attention, and looking for a creative outlet that would help others, Nicolas came up with the idea of making it into a clothing brand.  

Kicking off with two t-shirts, the duo then created a new range of T’s, sweats, hoodies and totes for all the family, with lockdown disco queen, Sophie Ellis-Bexter already showing her support, sporting one of the classic T’s on her Instagram.

Disco Queen is produced on Teemill, from the team at Rapanui, guaranteeing that the t-shirts are ethically produced with a keen eye on sustainability.

The idea behind Disco Queen is gorged with positivity, love, and of course dancing, with a big, bold, brassy and beautiful design.

Co-Founder, Stéphane Flesch said that himself and his partner Nicolas had the idea to make a t-shirt and ‘then suddenly the idea had blossomed into Disco Queen and a way to support some queer communities. Being a young queer person is not easy, the work akt do is invaluable and we just wanted to support in a small way.’ 

Briton Nicolas has been working in PR & Marketing for the last 17 years in London and Berlin for agencies including LexisPR, Exposure and M&C Saatchi. Since 2014, Nic has been splitting his time between London and Berlin where he set up and runs Rubber Communications, a boutique agency of comms experts for brands. On the side, Nic is an avid people watcher, disco dancer and amateur artist.

Born in France and splitting his time between Berlin and London, Stephane Flesch recently retrained as a graphic designer after years working in the care industry and as a translator. His keen eye for detail and design has seen him set up as a freelance graphic designer working with small businesses and brands in Berlin and London to help shape their design futures. 

Stephane is also a drag performer on the side, allowing him to further play with his design ethics on a totally different canvas, performing as Nikkie Volage.

77% of the LGBTQ+ young people akt works with, believe coming out at home was the main factor in causing their homelessness and so it’s vital that they’re supported in an environment that’s inclusive and celebrates their identities in order to improve their life outcomes.
