Introducing our new intern!
February 19, 2018 0 comments
We wanted to put Angus through a customary round of questions about where his love of fashion came from - we are thrilled to have him as part of the team for the next few months!
What sparked your interest in vintage fashion?
When I was about 10 years old probably going vintage shopping in Leeds with my sister - I loved rummaging around trying to find that one perfect piece and I've been hooked ever since!
What is your experience working in the fashion industry?
My first fashion job was working in a shoe concession in a small department store in my hometown. It was such a welcome change from working in pubs, so when I came to university I got a part-time job in Fenwick, where I still work. I interned in the studio at Jules B over the summer as well.
Who are your fashion icons?
Olivier Rousteing because he achieved so much at such a young age. His designs are fantastic and the fact that he became the creative director of Balmain at just 25 really inspires me.
What is your role at Trendlistr and what are you hoping to achieve for the business?
My role is to refine the social media marketing process, so getting really hands-on organising shoots and creating blog content which I think is really exciting. Beyond that I know that Louisa has some really exciting projects in the pipeline which I can't wait to get involved with.
Do you have any tips for people who are thinking about incorporating vintage into their wardrobes but feel a bit hesitant?
Take a look on Pinterest - you'd be surprised at how much you can gain from taking inspiration from other people's style.
Any vintage shopping tips?
Take risks, be confident and go bold - go shopping with a friend who will push you to try something you wouldn't normally try. I've found some of my favourite pieces in this way.
Desert island clothing: What item would you save?
I'd have to say my Nike Air Max 97s - they make any outfit in my wardrobe pop. I have a gold pair and a blue pair.
What is one piece of advice about fashion/life/confidence you would tell your younger self?
Don't be a people pleaser - life has enough stresses without worrying about other people's happiness so it's important to put yourself first.
We couldn't agree with Angus' advice more! We are so looking forward to working with him over the next few months as we move into our new showroom space and begin working on a capsule collection.
