I s p o k e to Hannah & Dylan, Head Designer & Creative Director, behind Twiceshy the label, easily one of the coolest labels out! I recently shot with photographer Wono Kim (W Studio) some of their pieces from their summer13 range, and am totes excited for their Autumn14 drop.
I n t e r v i e w below!
In three words, describe the TWICESHY g i r l?
Beautiful , Dreamy and Free
What's the s t o r y behind TWICESHY the label?
Twiceshy was formed in August last year by myself and Dylan. Initially we were after a source of creative outlet for both of us. We are both completely self taught designers so we have really been learning everything as we go. So far we have been blessed with amazing opportunities of collaborations with some of our favorite bloggers and now have our label stocked in some amazing stores such as Lana Boutique and TUC both on Hurstmere Road, Takapuna. We are both really excited to see what 2014 will bring for our label and watch our label continue to grow!
Has d e s i g n always been something you've wanted to do?
Hannah: For me yes! I have always had a strong love for art and design ever since I was young. On my high school year book under the 'future career' section I had put down fashion designer. I didn't expect this to become a reality only 2 years after graduating!
Dylan: Without knowing it design has always been a factor in my hobbies but getting into the fashion industry has helped me to realise how much I truly enjoy it!
Can you remember what the f i r s t item of clothing you designed was?
The first item of clothing that we designed for our label was a pair of 'upcycled' vintage levis which we created from the back of our caravan that we were living in at the time. So much has changes since then!
Can you give us any s n e a k y teasers or insight into what we can expect from your up and coming AW14 collection?
Hannah: Winter will bring our first seasonal AW collection 'We are the dreamers' which we are both so excited to be releasing! You can expect to see lots of soft tones - blues, greens and pinks along with an exclusive print. 'We are the dreamers' is heavily inspired by the idea of the beautiful dreamer, a girl who is both free and tied down within her own imagination at the same time!
Any f a v trends of right now?
Hannah: I am still in love with the boyfriend jean trend. Nothing beats an over sized white tee paired with ripped soft blue jeans!
Dylan: I have always loved a simplistic style on a girl, someone who feels confident because she is comfortable in what she is wearing. Anything oversized is a must!
If you had the chance to meet with any f a s h i o n icon, who would it be and why?
Hannah: A young Brigitte Bardot. We have drawn upon Brigitte as a huge inspiration for our up and coming collection so meeting the legend herself would be absolutely amazing!
What's your must have s u m m e r essentials?
1. A HUGE bottle of water
2. Frank body scrub - Keeping my skin so so soft!
3. A great fake tan - I are loving the Eco Tan Invisible Skin at the moment

(Since it's the summer holidays and all - for some) What's your d r e a m holiday destination?
