SLNGHR POP-UP @BOXPARK
— 29 Mar 2018
We caught up with Joshua Weekes, founder of Womenswear brand 'SLNGHR', to find out what to expect from their upcoming pop-up here:
Tell us about who you are and what you do?
My name is Joshua Weekes. I am the owner and director of SLNGHR; a start-up womenswear fast fashion house. SLNGHR produces small women's collections available via www.slnghr.com and at pop-ups like Boxpark.
Which song best sums up your brand?
I'm really not sure. At a recent Pop-Up we played "IAMDDB - Trophy" which seemed to vibe well haha! IAMDDB is a strong young woman with bags of style and uniqueness, she's blowing up right now which is what I hope for SLNGHR.
What can we expect from your stay at Boxpark?
If our previous pop-up is anything to go by... queues of stylish young women, influencers/ blogger; hopefully just a lot of young people excited to see the pop-up.
Which piece from your current collection is your favourite?
My favourite SLNGHR piece right now is our Blush Sheer Blouse. It's made from a lightweight beautiful slightly sheer fabric and has pearl effect buttons that are equally light; the whole piece feels like it'll float away from the rail.
What's the best reason to come to Shoreditch for a shopping spree?
Good people and cool vibes. Food spots aren't bad either.
What's your top Shoreditch tip?
Make friends with a Shoreditch House member if you're not already a member yourself and enjoy the rooftop pool with them in the summer.
What does the future hold for your brand?
This year SLNGHR plans expansion through wholesale deals and lots of style diversity to make our clothing stand out from the crowd.
You can catch SLNGHR's pop-up from Tuesday 3rd - Sunday 8th April in unit 26 of Boxpark Shoreditch!
