Sugar Tits... the interview
Not so long ago I was lucky enough to interview the amazing duo that run Sugar Tits London.. quite literally the coolest confectionary company you will ever see. Read on to here what they had to say...
1. Hey girl, thanks for letting me interview you. Can you tell members who you are and what you do. Hey, we're Georgia & Verity- and we run Sugar Tits. A fashion led, bad ass baking & confectionary company that makes super sassy treats for the instagram generation.
2. What does success mean to you? Obviously everyone has different aspirations and goals and ours was always to work for ourselves and do something in the creative industry. It's easy to dismiss people who don't take the prescribed route and there are a lot of startups which never get off the ground. We always had a lot of confidence in our idea but understandably not everyone around us did because it's a hard path to take. So I guess at this point, although we have so much further to go, success for us is being taken seriously as a business and having everyone believe in us.
3. What is the first thing you do every morning? Haha... talk about what deliciousness we ate for dinner. For real we are so greedy. We also have a little scroll through Instagram and see what all our other favourite girl bosses and brands are up to. It's a great way to stay motivated when you see all the amazing creative stuff going on.
4. Name your favourite current tv series, book and 90's film... The Kardashians ...(we know there are a lot of haters...but we love them). Not that kind of girl - Lena Dunham & Romy & Michelle's high school reunion.
5. Have you always been creative? Yes, we both originally trained as actresses, were always into art & from a young age knew we were never cut out for a desk job. That's probably why we bonded so much - we kind of knew we both had the same aspirations and decided we better do something about that them!
6. What does a working day look like for you? Pretty messy... a lot of glitter... hands covered in food dye & a lot of washing up.
7. What advice would you give to young creatives or start-ups? It's always good to find a niche in the market. You want to make sure you're the only person doing what you do - there will always be similar brands but you need to work out what's going to make you unique as that is what will get you noticed. ... and a punchy brand name goes a long way too...
12. What do you think the importance of sisterhood is? Social media is often at the root of a lot of jealousy and criticism and it's the girls in particular who seem to be targeted or blamed. But to be honest it has also opened our eyes to how supportive girls are to one another. There is so much love out there between amazing, talented, creative woman who haven't even met but they share the same drive and passion and it brings them together. We might be wrong but we're not sure that same level of encouragement and support network exists in the same way among men. It's a sisterhood thing.
13. What is the ethos behind your brand? To push boundaries and challenge preconceptions. It might just be food but it's not exactly conventional and we want to encourage other girls to have the confidence to say, do, dress etc. whatever way they want in order to express themselves creatively.
15. Name a woman you look up to? Past or present. Our number one babe. Dolly Parton - the wisest, sassiest woman out there.
17. What woman would play you in a film about your life? Probably each other... we need to put the acting training to some use at last.
