Interview as follows…
1.) Hi Beatrice. Its great to have you here today to talk about your amazing collection. Firstly, would you mind talking me through the story behind your collection/ brand?
Sure. Well, I have provided you with my snake inspired collection and also my butterfly inspired collection. I am a nature lover and so I have always loved animals, particularly snakes so that was the inspiration behind my collection. I also gained inspiration from other things I love such as skulls and bones within my jewellery and so have used the shapes of such items within my collection. I also believe that we are a unique brand as we use 3D printing, for example one item in my collection here at your boutique is a necklace of a snake made from the process of 3D printing. In this case, I took the real skull of the snake for inspiration and designed the necklace according to that.
I am also interested in sustainability, which is why we make everything ourselves in a studio and also recycle everything e.g from garments etc…
2.) How does it feel to be apart of our summer boutique with all the other designers we are showcasing?
I love to know other brands and also see what they are doing, so its great! I also like to see the differences between my collections and that of other designers. Plus, the location is perfect!
3.) So today’s event is for press and bloggers to come in and see/ post about your collection. Can I just ask what social media means to you and your brand?
Its important for me. I am currently trying to grow my Instagram account. Its good for people to know more about the brand and that can be communicated through social media. It helps to make my brand more authentic.
4.) Lastly, can I just ask about your thoughts on today’s event? What do you think about the interactive element of people coming in and trying on your collection?
I love to interact with people! I also love to see how they feel when they wear my designs.
It goes without saying that B_dodi designs are an incredibly innovative brand and are paving the way for newer and exciting ways to make/ construct jewellery! Be sure not to miss out on the chance to see and buy Beatrice’s unique designs at our new boutique – London Organic Fashion and Beauty Boutique, 7 Thayer Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 3JH!
