Published Sep 09 2021 in #cherryvelvet, #cottondresses, #madeincanada, #petite, #pinup

We thought it would be fun to share an interview with our newest team member. Introducing our adorable new Graphic Designer, April, who recently joined us in August. You may recognize her cotton-candy tresses and bubbly smile as she recently appeared on the scene modeling the newest dresses on the website and socials.

April is a breath of fresh air with her optimistic perspective, creative talent and artistic viewpoint.  April will be marrying the love of her life in Scotland next year and we couldn't be more excited for this wee lass. Let's get to know April:

Who are your style inspirations?

Life holds so many opportunities for inspiration; as a visual designer it is my passion to consume the physical world, then reflect the interesting bits back in my work. People that inspire me:

Illustration: Christoph Niemann
Humanitarian: Elladj Balde
Persona: Kate McKinnon
Music: Sofi Tukker

What would people find unexpected about you?

I have a background in interior design and I love renovating. I don't shy away from the bigger jobs including flooring, plumbing, and minor electrical, I just need a ladder as I'm only 5'2".

You are getting married to a Scotsman! Do you have a favorite Scottish saying you've picked up?

I could not believe the first time car park came out of my mouth, and I definately have adopted Oi rather they Hey!

How would you describe your personal style?

My at-home style is 'sport-metal' heavily influenced by Lululemon, self-made tie-dye oversized hoodies and my fiancé's random 70's - 90's band T-shirts.

My going-out-in-public style is Power Feminine. This outfit hinges on how much walking needs to happen. I love pairing a straight leg one piece jump suit with chunky platform shoes or bad-ass stilettos. But we better be taking an Uber right to the door!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I'm a mom.. so obviously I can read minds.

Five things you can’t live without?

My family (quietly minding their own business while do what I do.)
Good Music always manages to inspire or lift me out of a funk.
The Adobe Suite, and my computer for that matter because ART=LIFE.
Opinions of the very few (you know who you are) “Care about people’s approval, and you will always be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu
Food and Water.. isn't that obvious?

And lastly, what is your favorite Cherry Velvet dress?

The Molecular Magic with the cutie black shrug is amazing. I feel like I'm going to my first year at Hogwarts.
