HEY! LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU A LITTLE BETTER. INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU AS AN ARTIST
Hey! I’m Abbie, a 27-year-old, full-time designer and small business owner based in Manchester. Aside from design, I love live music, 60s/70s fashion, travelling, lying in the bath, buying over-priced coffee and cooking.
If you could describe your collection in 3 words what would they be?
Funky, retro & colourful 🌼 🍄 👩🎤 ✨
What does a day in the life look like for you?
Up until pretty recently my days were quite full on with packing orders and replying to emails, however I’ve just started working with a printing company which has made my work-life balance SO much better!
Now my days are much more diverse, and every day is quite different. Typically, I start the day by making a coffee and then going through my emails/messages from the day before – I find this eases me in and gets something ticked off straight away. After this I will either be working on a new collection, packing wholesale orders, creating social media content or completing admin-heavy jobs like uploading products to my website or researching SEO. I always like to split up my day by working in local coffee shops, going on walks and going to the gym.
After work you’ll most likely find me in the bath watching YouTube / Netflix and drinking tea 🧖♀️
What’s a fun fact about you that you think would surprise people?
I’m not actually a Manc. I’m from Blackpool but everyone seems to get confused by my accent. I’ve lived in 5 northern towns / cities over the past 10 years so it’s a mad mix.
