We recently visited the Stanley Kubrick exhibition at the Design Museum.
You will definitely be familiar with Kubrick’s work. From creating The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey and more, the exhibition itself shows the many small details that go into film making that you would never be aware of, to the bigger and more technical side of creating films.
As part of our “You Are More Than Your Day Job” series, our eCommerce and Marketing Manager // Founder of @babygirl.studio Bex, will be hosting a painting workshop with our vintage!!! You’ll get to choose between one of our hand picked denim jackets, jeans or skirts and will be shown how to create your design, the paint layers and top coat process. Once done, you will have created your very own bespoke hand painted piece, teaching you a new skill! The workshop will be open to all skill levels and all equipment will be supplied by us.
It’s our second part in our series of “You’re more than your day job.” We started this project due to us working with so many talented and hard working people. We’re excited about introducing members of our team, their talents and side hustles.
Next up is Bex! She’s our eCommerce and Marketing Manger here in store. Bex is also the founder of Babygirl Studio, a bespoke hand-painted clothing brand that we have here at ATIKA. Babygirl was founded in 2017 after an influencer asked Bex to make a hand-painted vintage jacket for her for London Fashion Week. The rest is history!
When I was younger, being a boy and being into fashion caused people to immediately label you as gay (for me, it was obviously true), but it would always be said as a negative. But guess what, times have changed!
Whilst there were openly queer designers of the past such as Thierry Mugler, Gianni Versace and Hubert De Givenchy, the uprising in explicit, unapologetic and innovative queer designers has risen to amazing new heights.
I created a Pride playlist for ATIKA with the intention to embody what pride is - complete inclusivity, rebellion and fun!
I couldn’t help but make something which is 7 hours and 34 minutes long (and counting.) Mainly because of the breadth of artistry that people of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies have made. There’s everything on there, you’ve got your classic Kylie bangers as well as more underground emerging artists such as Le1f and Angel-Ho.
