*NEW* Feature Friday - Me & Yu 2nd of August



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Me&Yu

It's Friday horraaah!! and I'm very excited to introduce this week's Feature Friday here on UniqueLoveStyle; Me&Yu! Each design from Me&Yu is hand-drawn and hand-printed by them in a studio in an old Cotton Mill in Manchester.
Quality, art and aesthetics are at the heart of every collection, with quirky pieces inspired by animals, imaginary worlds, symbolism and inspiring quotes. All of their pieces are unisex, some are hand-made and all are hand-printed. Screen printing each item individually creates subtle changes in texture and location each garment is slightly different from the next.


Such a creative company of course I couldn't wait to hear more from the talented Angie during our interview.

Interview with Angie Hulme l Owner/Designer of Me&Yu

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
I've always just loved fashion, been inspired by making, drawing and just being creative in general. I think the driving force behind what we do is the idea to make a living out of what you love and enjoy.

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I love the freedom that being self employed gives you. Yes you work twice as many hours as you would for someone else but you're in complete control of what you do and when - I'm certainly not a slave to the 9-5.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
I still feel proud if I see someone wearing one of my designs, but in general I just feel amazed that we've managed to make a successful business in the creative industries at a difficult economic time.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
We're emigrating to Australia this year, as well as keeping our UK shop and website open, we're hoping to grow the business globally, and I'd like to think the future sees us being a success on a larger scale.

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
It's very hard work. Be prepared for lots of long days and sleepless nights. Get as much experience as possible - work for other people and learn as much as you can about everything. Test the market by selling your own creations and learn all about your potential customers.

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
My new favourite design is the yin yang oversize tunic dress at £22, we also do the same design on a unisex t-shirt at £15 - it's just so fresh and clean, a perfect summer look.
