Today we have the very lovely Syreeta Johnson, who started indikidual - the super hip, new kids clothing label, joining us for a cuppa.
Who are you and what do you do?
Syreeta Johnson – Creative, Designer, owner of indikidual and mum to 2 year old Minnie
What makes you laugh?
I love a good pun!
Where do you get your daily inspiration?
From all over really, I have some very creative friends who all chip in their ideas. Then I get a lot of inspiration from
Minnie, she has a very funny personality and gets really into things (such as bananas) I tend to just run with what she
likes, its seems to work!
Where's your favourite place in the whole wide world?
I have too many favourites! I love Treasure Beach in Jamaica for the chilled out vibes and great food but then I also love
New York for hanging out and discovering cool stuff. I love London and Stockholm too, that’s where my family and friends are.
As a child, did you like dressing up?
Yes, I used to be a majorette purely because of the swirly, sparkly uniform you got to wear. I used to love dressing up in all
my mums, nanas and aunties clothes from the 70’s, especially the shoes! I still love dressing up now, any excuse!
Do you go out much without the kids? If so where? (we're not stalking you, honest)
I don’t get out enough! I recently had a lovely weekend away in Norfolk organized by Jenny of Mothers Meeting fame and Sian
from Baby Friendly Bolt Holes. It was lovely, no kids, long baths, facials, great food, life coaching and a psychic reading –
I totally recommend it for any mum in need of some me time!
When I’m not weekend breaking I tend to stay local and go to out in Kensal Rise to ‘The Chamberlayne’ or ‘The Shop’
What's your favourite film?
It has and always will be ‘Saturday Night Fever’, although I love ‘Twins’ too
What food is evocative of your childhood?
Chicken, rice and peas, my dad is Jamaican and loves to cook.
Do you have a special talent ?
Mmmm, not really! I have very good ideas though!
Continuing with indikidual – I love what I do right now.
I’m looking forward to expanding the range and adding in some great denim and outerwear styles for AW13.
Thank you so much for taking part in our Q&A Syreeta.
We're looking forward to your next collection and would really like to have that Norfolk weekend away too!! :o)
