Pop Up: Teressa Foglia
— 17 Feb 2019, 00:00 by Andrew Squire
Teressa Foglia will be taking over our pop-up unit from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th February! We asked Teressa a few questions to give you more of an idea of what to expect!
Tell us about who you are and what you do?
I am a hat maker + designer based in New York City. We create sustainably made bespoke pieces using ethically sourced materials. I am a big believer in creating a product that is meant to be an extension of someone, complementing their life. That is why I have such a passion for creating custom items. The product isn’t just a garment to add to their wardrobe, it is a staple piece that is going to live with them. It is more than just personal style, it becomes a part of that individual.
Which song best sums up your brand?
That is so hard! Here’s a playlist we keep on repeat at the studio that my creative partner and I made over the summer: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2fgxiyJycbEVDdsbzD7vAK
What can we expect from your stay at BOXPARK?
Custom hat making, hat making workshops, live demos, hat customisations, live art.
Which piece from your current collection is your favourite?
What’s the best reason to come to Shoreditch for a shopping spree?
For me, I always look forward to the vintage shopping! Shoreditch comes alive on the weekend and there’s no better place to find treasures.
What’s your top Shoreditch tip?
Spend a Sunday here - walk Brick Lane, visit the Columbia Road Flower Market, admire the street art, pop into Box Park, get in trouble at Shoreditch House, see a movie and get a manicure at Barber and Parlour and don’t leave without having some delicious Indian food.
What does the future hold for your brand?
Looking forward to growing our retail partners, expanding to the West Coast with another shop in Los Angeles and working with more creatives.
