At Hatch since:  June 2019

The name of my shop/space is: Rigged Out – The Alternative Streetwear Store 

We sell/make/create: Clothing 

We got started: Approximately 6 months ago when a passion for streetwear became a business.

I take inspiration from: Music, modern culture, fashion, clothing designs, underground unheard of brands.

My typical day:  Stock takes, stock ordering and buying, checking out new brands and new opportunities and selling! 

Before I did this I: Worked for another store.

The best thing about my job is:  Buying and designing clothing ranges

The worst thing about my job is:  The admin and paperwork!

Favourite item in store right now: This Wu-Wear patch hoody

You should visit our shop/space if you: Want to stand out from the crowd and bring some imagination to your wardrobe!  If you like streetwear we are the shop for you.

Our favourite thing about Hatch is:  The community spirit and cool place to hang out and shop.

In my spare time I:  Drink craft ales, listen to music, watch and play sport and spend time with my family.

My top tip to other independent traders would be:  Be different, and do your admin from day 1!!
