A few words about Cherry and Mint
Hi i'm Zoey, the person behind almost every step of the process for Cherry and mint products. I studied graphic design & advertising, had my masters in Animation, in 2009 i came back to Cyprus and immediately started a day job as a graphic designer. Although i love what i do, the day job was not fulfilling my creative needs.
At first I created Cherry and Mint in 2014 in a form of an art blog because i wanted to create a space where i could share my work as well as to push my self to create more personal projects and explore my style. About a year later, i realised my excitement for surface design.
In the meantime i was already working on my sewing skills, it was something that i always loved and had at the back of my mind, i slowly started making clothing for me and my friends as a way to get away from mass produced items plus the idea of wearing something that can bring out your uniqueness was always exciting for me.
When i realised that my two big loves (sewing & designing) could be combined i created my own brand (which i couldn't name anything else other than my blog's name) i started out with a small range of illustrated all-over print clothing and since then i am slowly but constantly evolving Cherry and mint. It's a project which reflects my love to create, explore and experiment through art and fashion while practicing ethical & sustainable views, using textiles printed with eco-friendly inks, organic fabrics and products that are made with off-cuts for a hopefully zero waste overall production.
Through Cherry and Mint i want to see more people exploring their own unique style without feeling trapped into the norms and wear more colour, the world needs more colour! :)
Thanks for coming by
