Zoë Foster Blake makes bitter breakups fashionable with her new clothing line

Adding all to cart!

By Bettina Tyrrell

Zoë Foster Blake has got your back, literally. The author, skincare entrepreneur and creator of app Break-up Boss - a tool that guides you through your heartache - has leaked images of sassy t-shirt and jumper designs to coincide with the app's advancement into a book later this year.

The mum-of-two took to Instagram to share a preview of the Break-up Boss collection.

"I made some Break-Up Boss stuff for those inflicted with a broken heart. (Or, those who want to gift a forlorn friend.)," she wrote.

"Each item works hard. Take this stylish sweater, for example, which is soft and comfy for the freshly-single-sobbing-on-your-bed-and-living-on-wine bit, AND sassy as hell for the dazzling, mojo-spiked loogoutworld I'm BACK, bit. (Or just anytime/as a non-broken up person.)"

"My god will you boss so hard in this stuff. It's gonna be an all-out boss explosion. A bossplosion!"

So far, the Break-up Boss collection includes a cute and comfy grey jumper with the word 'Boss' embroidered in 80s inspired typography across the chest, and a white tee boasting the same font in a bright pink, all available to purchase through the Break-up Boss website, 12th February.

Hints suggest more items are yet to be revealed. A post announcing the Break-up Boss t-shirt on the app's Instagram account cheekily mentions: "The tee has a few select friends, and together they form the Break-up Boss collection".

While it's not quite clothing, a rose-quartz crystal in the shape of a heart (which promises to help dissolve emotional wounds and pain) has been added Break-up Boss's online buys.

In March last year Zoë launched her Break-up Boss app which she said was originally a book.

"Seven years ago I decided to write a book on break-ups," the 37-year-old explained. "Because I think they're a gift. A chance for epic growth. Painful but largely misunderstood, like Justin Bieber. But life got busy, and the idea was parked."

"Then, last year, I realised it should be an APP, not a book! So, I jammed a books' worth of content into a tidy little app, and today that app and idea is finally live."

The Wrong Girl author says the app is designed to work as a "digital pocket coach" with the singular goal of helping women handle, heal and move on from their breakup in a healthy way.

Earlier this month Zoë announced the app, which was first developed as a book, was going to make it's debut in paper form in April this year.

The Go-To skincare founder says feedback from her fans inspired the shift to a hard-copy version of Break-up Boss.

"But then you guys were all like: 'Make it into a book! Paper is still cool! Also, it means we can gift it to our sad friends real easy!' And since I always listen to you guys, except when you try to tell me lemon sorbet is a viable dessert: here we are," she wrote on Instagram.

Zoe's social media followers were delighted by the news of a Break-up Boss book and now empowering clothing to match.

"Not going through a break up but feel like a boss, can I still wear?" asked one Instagramer, to which Zoe promptly replied: "Of course! I am happily married and wear non-stop."

The Break-up Boss clothing collection will be available through the app and book website.
