on september 1st, i will be celebrating a major landmark, three whole years of trade as quirky collective. the anniversary will also be an opportunity to assess quirky collective’s positioning and my personal aspirations. so i have decided to put the online store on a temporary hiatus.
a little ‘fix up, look sharp’ i feel is necessary to redefine the brand’s edge and come back with a different but stronger concept. this, hopefully, is not a final goodbye but a little timeout to reinvent and innovate from the wealth of experience and knowledge i have accumulated in the last three years.
i am grateful for all of the people, family and friends, loyal customers, brands, mags that have contributed to quirky collective’s success and profile to date and for the friendships that have formed along the way. i have enjoyed the ride and i am so glad that the whole thing has ultimately helped to reconcile myself with the medium of photography.
so in short, i’m off to live a little, go back to basics and do what i know, take time to play with styling and photography, in the hope of coming back reinvigorated. whilst the store will soon be offline, i will keep up my facebook page, this blog, twitter and pinterest accounts. you can also find me here michelle-marshall.com and here. and i’ll still be on the other side of the keyboard if you want to drop me a line on michelle at quirkycollective dot com
please keep your eyes peeled on facebook, twitter and your inbox for news of quirky collective’s goodbye sale. and in the meantime, if you need a photographer/stylist or simply fancy working together, drop me a line.
bye for now and a huge thank you to you all!
* all orders placed between now and the end of september will be processed as usual.
