Two Questions with Anna
Do you have any specific rituals to reset to be creative?
Our brand is based on rock'n'roll, Great Britain and fashion. These are the three pillars at the forefront of butter London. We play music, have guest DJs and are exposed to different influences. Along those lines, we do shop a lot. Fashion is critical to our brand. We get inspired by it and our products are reflective of high fashion color transformed into beauty products. Inspiration really does come from everywhere, whether we go on a team shopping safari or travel together and take pictures, our options are really limitless.
Looking towards the future, how is butter London going to be a leader?
I think we have stay on the inside edge of fashion. We don't follow trends. We create them. We will be focusing more on talking more to our consumer base to garner insight, market research to mark gaps and opening up the lines of communication.
