Spotlight: Only the Blind
— 5 Jun 2018, 21:06 by Lauren Furey
Only the Blind adds a vibrant splash of colour to Boxpark's black and white motif. The signature styles are brought to life with a touch of class and quality that feels a rarity in high street fashion, today. In order to get a wide shot on the story of the brand, we sat down with lead designer and store manager, Natasha Robert.
Tell us who you are and what you do.
I'm Natasha Robert, I'm the designer for Only The Blind. You'll also be able to catch me at the store six days a week; I mostly manage everything at the store and do the designs for the future collections for Only the Blind.
What song best sums up your brand?
Everyday - Manu Crook$! "I been working, I don't need no holiday. When they see me bet they catch the Harlem shakes. I know you see me shining from a mile away. You know I do this everyday". These Lyrics pretty much sum us up because if you want your dreams to become tangible you have to go out there and do what you have to, to get where you wanna be.
