Below taken from House Of Coco interview:
“Blueberry Milk was the unplanned child, a business that was borne after its founder, Sophie, spotted a gap in the market. Quirky, fun and unique, her accessories are designed to make you stand out from the crowd, in a good way.
Sophie is an accessory designer to watch out for. Her goals with the brand are inspiring and her attitude is that of a winner.”
You sell earrings, necklaces and hair accessories that are really fun and unique. How often do you add new items to your collection and what’s the process behind it?
Blueberry Milk is the child that wasn’t planned! I have always been interested in fashion but my head has always been stuck in the early 2000’s and with the struggle of finding the accessories I imagined. I started making custom acrylic Jewellery for myself and found compliments coming from people on social media and this made me realise there was a hole that needed to be filled. after talking to my friends and partner about this they helped set up a business plan and I managed to find a couple of sustainable UK based suppliers. the most important thing to me was that it would be affordable jewellery that was also high quality but with a strong personal and community feel with our customers.
Talk us through an average day in your working life…
I would love to say that I have a hectic working day, but the truth is at the beginning it was a 15 hour a day work day but after the initial launch most of my time work day is spent on social media and finishing of my digital marketing course. I usually put aside a couple of hours a week to look for new stocked items and contacting manufacturers as future plans may contain bespoke Blueberry Milk items.
For anyone wanting to launch a business in your industry, what advice would you offer?
Research, Research, Research! This is honestly the most important thing, make sure there is a gap in the market for your product, find a niche for your brand to fit into that creates a new gap if you need to. Find out what is working for other brands and find out how you can incorporate similar techniques to your own brand.
