Tell us a little about the origins of Peppermint Fox.
Peppermint Fox is the collaborative effort of two friends. We love collecting stories and beautiful clothes and accessories. Frustrated at not being able to find designs that we loved, we decided to embark on an adventure to make them ourselves, and share them with others.
Describe your creative process.
Together we brain storm to come up with cute and whimsical collections, starting with items that we ourselves want to see and buy. From there we share the workload using each of our talents to make each product the best it can be and to bring a little bit of both of us to each collection.
What inspires you the most?
We are inspired by fairy tales, the wilderness and charming antiquities, the originality of street fashion and the opulent illusion of historical aristocratic life.
Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers.
We love people who are enthusiastic about their creations. We adore Kristy Kate, who has the cutest illustrations and t-shirts (www.kristykate.com), and we are always excited to see what new brooches and creations Black Wool Holiday has made (www.blackwoolholiday.com), and are constantly admiring anything by Moripop, who also host some very cool events (www.facebook.com/moripopcafe).
What are your ultimate dreams for Peppermint Fox?
We would like to travel with Peppermint Fox and make our own adventure. To see Peppermint Fox worn out and about and featured in magazines would make us endlessly happy- to see it featured in street snaps would be glorious. We want to see how other people wear Peppermint Fox and celebrate it! For each of us personally, we’d like to be able to grow enough that we can work on our other hobbies. One day we’d like to open our own boutique and cafe, where we could cultivate a creative space for writers and artists.
What will will we find from Peppermint Fox at our November Bend and Snap Market?
