Rebekah founded Poppyseed when she was seven-months pregnant. Some may call this crazy, and it may very well be, but she’d say it was one of the best decisions she’s ever made. Because she started designing while she was pregnant, she became wildly passionate about creating clothes that can fit regardless. In a world where everything is “smart,” she felt her clothing should be too. She’s a bit tea obsessed. With black tea in particular. She’s married to her best friend, and has a charming, bright-eyed toddler with the cutest dimples this side of anything. She’s a believer. Raised on the beaches of Central California and the countryside of the Midwest. She’s also a military spouse. Her family calls the gritty city of Tacoma, Washington home, finding endless inspiration in its hard-working history. Lastly, she’s a big-time hustler and is here to shake things up.
It started with one dress.
Adam’s sister had a request. She wanted a kickass dress she could wear before, during, and after pregnancy. So she engineered a dress that could change shape using two bilateral zippers sewn into inverted pleats. English? She could change the shape of the dress as she needed. Interest in this product grew, and soon people were asking where they could buy one. After graduation and a few years of contracted work, the moment came for Adams to launch her own brand.
Poppyseed was born with the desire to produce quality garments that could change their shape as the wearer needed them, while still be fashion-forward. We launched a Kickstarter campaign in January 2016 to fund the production of our core design, The Zipper Dress. Throughout the rest of the year, we added new, innovative pieces that solved problems.
In 2017, Poppyseed competed in The Bellevue Collection's Independent Designer Runway Show. We showed our Spring/Summer ‘18 Collection, "Break The Surface," and took home the grand prize. Our winning collection is currently available online. Our newest collection “LAUNCHED” can be found both online and in select stores in the Seattle and Tacoma area.
At Poppyseed, we’re committed to producing garments that can be worn through multiple stages of life. If you’re pregnant, or not, postpartum or simply craving clothing that does more, we offer something that will fit. Because clothing should fit, regardless.
