Meet Priscila Gonzalez, founder of Salty Soul Surfwear and find her this Sunday 17 December at TVM.

Tell us about how and when your label was created?

I am a graphic Designer and I always dreamed about becoming my own boss. I love the ocean and I love swimwear. I am also very passionate about our beautiful planet, I am always willing to do something to help the environment and I never really found a brand that makes ethical, comfortable, good quality swimwear that I love... So I decided to create my own.

What pieces are included within your range?

We have bikinis, one piece, long sleeve surf suit and cropped vest. From size 6 to 10, for all the ocean lovers out there.

What is your creative background?

I Studied Graphic design back in 2009. Finished in 2011. Since then, I have been working in offices doing magazine and advertising designs. Not really what I loved to do but it paid the bills for a while.  I used to do some freelancing just so I would be a bit closer to what I really loved to do. In 2014 I decided to pursuit my dream and started drawing a swimwear collection and some prints. I fell in love with the whole idea and decided to create Salty Soul Surfwear.

Where is the label designed and made?

The label is designed here in Australia and made in Indonesia

I traveled to Indonesia once I had all my designs and prints ready so I could find a place to produce the bikinis. I tried to keep it local but my budget was really small. So I found a family owned business over there and met everyone involved with my bikinis. I think it’s important for every business owner to know exactly what the work conditions are when manufacturing products overseas.

What inspires you?

Surfing. The Ocean inspires me.

Latest collection consists of?

Mimpi Collection is our very first collection and it’s all about pursuing your own dreams.

What's on your mood board?

Lots of perfect waves in a clear water, paradise island.

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

Bob Marley. He inspires me anywhere, anytime.

A day in the life of you consists of?

Eat, Surf, Create, Surf, Sleep. And a few other things in between haha

Favourite TVM stall (besides yours of course)?

Dusty Child. They have some super cute clothes for kids.

Favourite reads/blogs?

Travel Books. I love to travel. 😉

What can we expect from the next collection/what are your plans for 2013 and beyond?

We want to expand our range to make some spring suit neoprene next year. All sustainable, without costing the earth.

Also getting involved with more projects to help the environment.

I’m not sure if I mentioned but we have partnered with Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund and are going to plant 1 tree for every product sold.

Why TVM?

I Just love the incentive that TVM gives to brand new local businesses. Love to see the community helping each other out. I went to the last 2 markets and the vibe was just amazing! You guys rock!

What do you love most about attending TVM?

I love the friendly vibe, the live music and the yum food!

Meet Elodie Darwish, founder of beautiful handcrafted contemporary jewellery label elodie Jewellery.

Tell us about how and when your label was created?

About 12 years ago when I completed my design studies. I started off making jewellery on the side of my day job, and 12 years later I’m still doing it.

What pieces are included within your range?

Everything from rings to cuff-links to necklaces and bangles.

What is your creative background?

I studied Industrial Design at Uni and then went on to do jewellery design at TAFE in Melbourne.

Where is the label designed and made?

Until now I’ve been hand making my designs.  Although as I’m ready to grow the business, I’m in the process of considering other avenues of getting my designs partly produced so that I can finish them off.

What inspires you?

Mostly form, geometric and organic.  I’m often inspired by furniture and lighting and other design objects I see in lifestyle magazines, in stores, online.

Latest collection consists of?

I’m just working on a new collection at the moment that will introduce some new rings and new earrings.

What's on your mood board?

I don’t have one….but I have heaps of Pinterest boards that I trawl through to spark ideas and I can tell you now there is no theme or trend…it’s the biggest miss mash of boards you ever did see.

What’s your creative space like?

To be honest a little messier than I’d like.  I’ve nailed keeping my room clean and tidy now that I’m a grown up…but somehow I’ve not managed to extend that to my studio.  Working on it.

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

Generally nothing.  I like working in silence, most people think I’m crazy.  Occasionally I listen to the radio if I feel like a bit of top 40 fun or I’ll listen to pod casts.

A day in the life of you consists of?

Well on a studio day (when not at the day job) I like to start early after I’ve been for a walk.  What I’m doing varies from week to week, whether I’m making rings or making parts to earrings or painstakingly working out what I could do on social media, that part kills me.

Favourite TVM stall (besides yours of course)?

Ummmm….because I haven’t actually had a chance to check everyone else out yet, as I’ve only done one market and was there solo, BUT, I did make my way to Mio Wraps to get the most delicious buckwheat wrap!! They are my favourite!

Favourite reads/blogs?

I love scrolling through Scandinavian design blogs and design websites in general.

What are we likely to find you wearing on market day? Any favourite labels?

Something super comfy - jeans and a top or an easy dress.

I’m not much of a label girl.  I’ll buy what I like no matter where it’s from.  The wardrobe spans across quite an array of labels from something second hand to the staple Aussie labels to the occasional (Aussie) designer piece.   I LOVE bright colours. I’m not afraid to where the most vibrant colours possible….and then some days I do the Melbourne thing and wear all black…usually that day means it’s bloody cold outside…often it’s unintentional.

What can we expect from the next collection/what are your plans for 2017 and beyond?

well, I’m working on new pieces at the moment…I don’t know how it will unfold.  Basically my plan for here on in is to get my work out there.  I’ve been a little lazy over the years but I’ve been given the kick up the bum I needed and so it’s time to bust out.

Introducing Sandy Cousens, founder of health and lifestyle business Calm Body and Home.

I’ve been in the interior design field for nearly 15 years, starting as a mural artist for the residential and commercial sector. This organically lead into colour consulting, interior styling then renovations, opening up a retail store and then the joy of furthering both my design and art skills.

What made your pursue your creative passion?

I’ve always found art to be a form of meditation for me, and through a health journey, that enhanced my spiritual journey, I realised I wanted to be a compass to my sons and live my passion; so hopefully I’m showing them that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.

When did you take the plunge and start your own business?

It was after meeting my now husband 15 years ago, and deciding to pursue my creativity. However, my real passion, Calm Body and Home eventuated about a year ago, and I’ve just launched the new site, products and social media these last few months.

What does your brand consist of?

Calm Body and Home is all about gently guiding people to live a healthier and calmer life. Through my design, I’ve created a series of artworks, aromatherapy products and workshops that are geared towards living a holistically healthier life.

Where is the label designed and made?

Everything is created on the Gold Coast.

What inspires you?

This life that I’ve been so blessed to have, my sons, my health and the beautiful souls I get to meet daily.

What are your plans for the brand and where do you hope it takes you?

Eventually I would love to see someone running the Calm Body and Home products so I can concentrate on the creative and host more workshops to spread the word. I’ve been blessed to meet people from the UK who have shown interest in my products so I would love to see them over there and even team up with like souls to host some workshops abroad too. I would love to see people realise that it doesn’t have to be expensive to be healthy and by using the kits I’ve created, people from all demographics can do just that.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

I’m in my forties, and as much as I don’t like to use that as an excuse, I’ve never used social media up until recently, so this has been a whole new expertise and learning experience - but I’m getting there! A challenge is always good for the soul (!).

What is the best thing about having your own business?

The feeling of achievement, being able to attend events at my children’s school and having such beautiful comments of how it’s helped people in various aspects of their life. It’s such a blessing.

One piece of advice for someone hoping to start their own small business that you wish you’d been told?

Have all your ducks in a row, be brave with social media, but most importantly live your truth; don’t suffer from ‘comparitonitis’, as by living your passion, you will raise your vibration and attract like souls or those that need to be attracted to you. If you live your truth, all will unfold at the right time.
