A new clothing line aimed at the LGBT community has caught the eye of some high profile fans.

The clothing line, set up by Fern Coslett, comprises mainly of androgynous causal wear inspired by LGBT culture and issues.

The 20-year-old created Elm Apparel with the backing of the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s young entrepreneur bursary scheme.


Gareth Thomas and Ian ‘H’ Watkins were among celebrities who shared their photos wearing the line.

The rugby star sported a geometric bear design jumper while the Steps singer wore a ‘Make the Yuletide Gay’ sweater.


Miss Coslett said: “Its a dream come true to have such iconic people in the Welsh gay community wearing Elm products, because they’re so influential and help inspire so many people across Wales and beyond, to embrace who they are.”

She got in touch with the stars after her mum suggested that she do so.
