60 seconds with… Tuesday Vintage

With Rachel March

By Kian West

 

SOMETIMES THE UNIVERSE WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS. WE WERE BUSY AT MIRAGE HUNTING FOR FRESH NOVOCASTRIAN CREATIVE TO INTERVIEW AND STUBBLED UPON THE TUESDAY VINTAGE WEBSITE, A FEW HOURS LATER, BY PURE COINCIDENCE I RECEIVED A TEXT FROM RACHEL INTRODUCING HERSELF. IT SEEMED LIKE FATE SO WE STOPPED FOR A MOMENT SO SHE COULD TELL ME (AND YOU) MORE.

So Rachel, Tell us all about Tuesday Vintage?

Tuesday Vintage is an online vintage boutique based in Newcastle, Australia. It is also a creative outlet where i can show cast the shoots i get to work on, the people who inspire me, but also I get to sell all these amazing one off hand selected clothing from around the world.

 

 

The website also states, “Styling” what does this mean?

It means i get to source and style amazing pieces of clothing on gorgeous models at photo-shoots.

 

And you are a photographer?

I've always had an eye for it but I’d rather be buying.. Or styling.. They are my things!

 

Where is your favourite place in Newcastle to hang out?

Rolador on Beaumont st, Cafe Inu in Carrington, The Lair in Hunter Street Mall.

 

Who inspires you Rachel?

My toddler. He's the reason I’ve been able to do all of this for so long! I'm continuously inspired by the people I work with on a daily basis whether they're young designers, photographers, labels, makeup artists, models, and creative. etc.

 

Anything else Novocastrians should know about you?

I don't work on Sundays. Sunday is for reading the paper and going to the beach xo

Just Another Tuesday 260814 #Blogtribe by Kian West

For those of you playing at home, I write the "Intro" section every month for Newcastle Mirage and have always tried to emulate the Editor sections of other magazines I really enjoy. An inspiring piece that also somehow connects with the articles inside. A sort of cohesive glue to the rest of the zine... Inside the August Intro I mentioned I'd write every week for the month and if people liked it I'd continue. Well, I failed.

I failed miserably and didn't write all month. In my defence, after I wrote that I realised I hadn't really planned any further than that. It seems simple enough at face value, write something every week. But What? And When? So it has taken me a month to work out the When part and oddly enough that seemed more important than the What because without consistency it really doesn't matter what it is about. So in light of all this, inspiration grabbed me this week. I have been following The Blog Society for a few months now and trying to get a feel for what other Bloggers are writing about. Most are women that I could find, a lot are themed around cooking, fashion, decorating or craft, entertaining children and similar. But that doesn't help me. We write a monthly Art & Culture Zine that is focused on the WHO of Newcastle...

But then, you suddenly think, maybe people want to hear what is going on behind the scenes? Every week we meet with people as the project of Mirage develops, contacts are formed and events are happening and so I am really asking...

Does this sound interesting?

 

  1. Like for instance, I met with Jon from the Hunter Business Chamber last week about becoming a member and also to start gaining some business insight, maybe a mentor, to help assist the growth of us as well as myself.... Would you like to hear about that?
  2. I also visited a Poetry Slam. I've never visited a Slam before and was completely blown away... What about that?
  3. At the same time I've had Ryan on the case to develop layers of our logo and cutting out a stencil for some limited Edition Tote Bags... Would you enjoy hearing/seeing this project?

So, I'm asking you to pick 1, 2 or 3 and I'll elaborate on this before the weekend... But in future I'm planning to write something for every Tuesday and if I don't get any feedback I'll just keep on writing random stories... it is much more fun together though.
