some will glow team Q&A

you know it's good when mum approves. a beautiful jumper arrived in the post today (sorry i don't have a photo yet). really well made (each jumper is completely unique), they're beautifully finished and come in great packaging.
i love the some will glow team.

Tell me a little bit about your team and where you are located.
We're a team of two students based in Brighton who enjoy spending time sewing, listening to 50s do wop and drinking herbal tea.

-How did you get started?
After helping out at a local fashion fair in 2008, we were inspired and decided to start designing and creating garments ourselves. We formed our name playing with fridge magnets during a midnight kitchen raid the night before opening our stall at our first Fashion Fair.

-What are your influences?
We are influenced by both retro kitsch design and cutesy harajuku graphics. We use both vintage and new materials and like our finished products to have a patchwork-y, handmade feel.

-What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Although it can cause some minor disputes, the two of us having very different styles and preferences to each other helps us design products for a range of different people. We also have a minor weakness for endless cups of tea and bad television during working hours.

-What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
This advice wasn't necessarily given to us directly, but we take 10 Things I Hate About You much too seriously... "...Don't let anyone ever make you feel like you don't deserve what you really want. Go for it."

-What do you hope to have achieved in the industry, 10 years from now?
International fame and adoration (Opening our own store would also be good).
