Are there any particular steps in your creative process that you enjoy most?
Aretha: Definitely; trying the color for the first time is always great and especially straight from manufacturing all ready for sale is fun. Photo shoots and Janine and I color name brainstorming sessions are THE best!
Janine: The build up to a new collection launch. I love Floss Gloss photo shoots more than anything. The ultimate day of creative indulgence and finally realizing this vision that you've been working on for months.
If you weren't doing this, what do you think you'd be doing? What would you want to do?
Aretha: I think I'd be still waiting tables in some hell hole but I'd really wanna be obvi a rockstar or rapstar, i mean your asking haha!
Janine: Can't be sure but probably bartending. Maybe at a label designing. I'd want to be doing Floss Gloss.
What is your work soundtrack?
Aretha: Rap, rock, with an emphasis on Seals & Croft summer breeze, master p, pentagram, mariah carey,heart, three six mafia, zz top, Swishahouse, mac dre, Janine and I always on top of that and are all over the map....within reason.
Janine: A variety of Rap, Soul, Rock, Girl Groups, Johnny Cash, its an eclectic space.
Can you tell us about your work space? What is your ideal work environment?
Aretha: Standing desks, ventilation, oooh a stationary bike!
Janine: Currently in my apartment in our 'second bedroom' a.k.a. the Floss Gloss Office. Ideal workspace ~ stationary bikes, or standing walking desks, Facebook cafeteria- def!
Anything you'd like to add?
Janine: You only live once!
