In each of their five major collections and two party collections Antipodium has remained true to an addictively simple aesthetic: Finch creates unique, beautiful pieces that are witty, effortlessly cool and unselfconsciously sexy – just like its wearers.

“A

ntipodium dresses women who are fiercely individual, confident and unapologetically seductive.

“ Antipodium has struck a chord with style obsessives the world over. Creative director Geoffrey J. Finch uses capricious steals from pop culture and his rural Queensland childhood; his style-heavy Shoreditch neighbourhood also provides inspiration.

Established in 2006, the label began as a happy accident: an eponymous one-off collection for London's Antipodium boutique. Finch and company founder Ashe Peacock decided to create a capsule range for the store. Its popularity was instantaneous. Their complete debut collection launched to overwhelming acclaim at London Fashion Week in September that year.

SALES + MARKETING

ROCK ON... Using Customers , Media and Building Trust

Marketing Plans In your business plan, you established your customer base and their demographics. While identifying your customer base is essential to your business it is equally important to figure out a way to get them to come to your business whether online or offline. Your business marketing should focus on what makes your business different from all other businesses. What is it that makes your business unique? Is it your service? The product? The location? The prices? Figure out what sets your business apart from its competition because this is how you are going to market your business. Ads that you use to promote your business should make it very clear just why a customer should come to you instead of the competition.

Using Customers to Source New Customers One of the best ways to attract customers is through word of mouth. Satisfied customers are your best source of advertising, bar none. Your customers will be satisfied when you pay attention to their concerns and needs and provide them with excellent service, a good product at a good price. They will tell other customers about your business and it will start to grow. This is known as viral marketing and it is very effective. You can do a marketing study on your customers to see where they come from and what they like about your business. You can use such studies to find out what you can do to improve your business.

Using Media A small business will not be able to afford large media coverage. But smaller media such as online advertising is perfect for the small business. You will want to know the location of your target market before you use the media so that you can advertise in the right location.

“What is it that makes your business unique?� June 2010 | SCOUT Magazine | www.myscoutmagazine.com


Using The Internet With the use of the internet in today’s society, most of your customers will expect to be able to contact you online or at least view your website. You should have a domain name registered and build a website that is professional and is complimentary to your business. If you have a brick and mortar business, you will also need a website. You will want to use a professional web designer for the website. Often, the website is the first impression that others will have of your business. If you have a cheap and shoddy looking website, chances are that others will feel that your business is cheap as well. You want to create a positive impression with a professional website.

Make sure that you update the text and other information in your website as well. This is one way to keep your customers updated and satisfied without offending those who do not want to be bothered by unsolicited contact.

“Do not allow your website to remain dormant”

Makes sure you put the domain name for your business on the business cards, your email signature and other stationery. You will want to advertise the domain name on anything that you use to advertise the phone number or name of the business. This allows customers to find you online and browse at their leisure at what you have to offer. Set up a twitter account for your business and remain active in the various social networks like Facebook etc. Do not allow your website to remain dormant. Keep it updated regularly and offer special sales for internet customers. You may want to use coupons online as well on a periodic basis. By offering specials, you keep people coming to your website and by offering coupons; you are keeping people coming to your business. June 2010 | SCOUT Magazine | www.myscoutmagazine.com


SALES + MARKETING Business Logo Using a business logo will enable you to build a brand that your customers learn to recognize and associate with you. New businesses must have their business name incorporated into the logo. Older businesses can get away with using just a symbol on their logo because they have spent years building their brand and getting others to associate their logo with their name. Here are some tips on how to create a business logo: Keep the business logo attractive but simple. Create a business logo that will be able to go on letterhead, cards, packaging and other products associated with your business. You will want the logo to be easy to read in all sizes. The logo that you put up on your office wall will be much larger than that which you put on your letterhead. You will want your logo easily produced in black and white so that it can be run through copy machines or fax machines that do not have color printing.

“Don’t overburden the logo with colors�

Do not overburden the logo with colors; keep it simple and easy to reproduce. Make your logo easy enough to identify as your business trademark and allow it to stand apart from the competition.

marketing plan for your business should launch at a time when your business is most profitable. Your You should do a marketing study to find out when the most profit is derived from your type of business and launch your business at this time to make a big splash. Launching your business at a time when the market is dead is not a good idea and will seem anti-climatic. You are working hard at developing your business so naturally you want the launch to be a great success. Develop a time table as to when the best time will be to market your business and launch your business at this point as well as concentrate on key times for marketing . June 2010 | SCOUT Magazine | www.myscoutmagazine.com


Building Trust As you continue to run a reliable and trustworthy business, you are building trust with your customers. The more you are consistent with good quality products and services, the more your customers will start to feel a trust for your business. Building up trust takes time, but it is well worth the effort. The best advertising that any business can have is that from satisfied customers. Satisfied customers will tell others about your business and the fact that they trust you. This is never to be underestimated as most people will travel far and wide for a business they can trust. Remember when you had your first customer? Remember the feeling of elation? Treat every customer like you treated the first one, each and every time they call and you will be just fine.

“Building up trust takes time, but it is well worth the effort�

STYLE CRUSH

Barbro Andersen

June 2010 | SCOUT Magazine | www.myscoutmagazine.com


The photography is just as stunning as your style choices. Do you photograph yourself? Oh, wow, thank you so much! Yes, I do take my own pictures. I prefer doing it that way too, because I have full control of both my looks and the general outcome. I couldn’t help but notice that you add song lyrics to some of your style posts. Can you give me a few lines from your favorite song at this very moment. That’s a hard one. I love music, and I always have – and I’ve never been able to choose one song, when asked to. I’ll share the lyrics of one of my all time favorite, though, which is Iris by Goo Goo Dolls. “And I don’t want the world to see me, ‘cause I don’t think that they’d understand. When everything’s made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am”. What one item in a women’s wardrobe, should she never leave the house without? Great shoes. Best fashion advice? Do not wear what others have worn before you; but what others would want to wear after seeing it on you.

Barkatt, Barbro, Cathrin, Andersen. are all such beautiful names. We know that you were named after an English writer, what was her/his name? My name is Barbro, and I’m named after the writer Barbra Cartland. My mother was reading a book she had written the first time I kicked from within, and that is why she named me by her. Do you know the meaning and origin of your name? It means stranger, strange or foreign. I looked it up several years ago, and found out it derived from a Greek word: barbaros, which means “foreign”. According to legend, “Saint Barbara” was a young woman killed by her father Dioscorus, who was then killed by a bolt of lightning. She is the patron of architects, geologists, stonemasons and artillerymen – which is very different from my personality. Because of her renown, the name came into general use in the Christian world in the Middle Ages. It’s not a very common name in Norway, though it was locally popular when I was born in the 80’s. June 2010 | SCOUT Magazine | www.myscoutmagazine.com


STYLE CRUSH

Do not wear what others have worn before you; but what others would want to wear after seeing it on you.

Do films ever inspire your wardrobe? If so, what films have left a fashion imprint on you? Yes, a great deal, but until just recently it has been on a somewhat subconscious level. I’ve never really thought about it, but I do have a fascination regarding the 1920’s movies, and of course Audrey Hepburn. It may have something to do with the whole black and white theme, as it is an immense part of my personal style. Moulin Rouge is however the movie that made the biggest impression on me, as it is my favorite movie of all time. Nicole Kidman played the role perfectly, and I admire her sophisticated style a great deal. I read that you also have a passion for writing. What sort of things do you enjoy writing about? Oh, well, that’s pretty much all in the past. I used to write novels, essays and poems, both fictional and what-nots from my own life. I used be a lot more creative, but somewhere along the road something changed. Now I stick to my blog and sometimes I write a little for a website called NorwegianFashion.no, which is mainly about fashion in Norway.

Favorite bad word? Haha, I really don’t know. Maybe “cunt”? It’s both sexual and disgusting, maybe sexually disgusting. Most bad words I know, and unfortunately use, are in Norwegian. I love the fact that you refer to your significant other as ‘lover’, I’ve officially decided to refer to mine as such from now on! Hope you don’t mind? Oh, not at all, sweetie! I think one should always refer to the love in our lives as something other than partner, wife, fiancé and those other boring words. My lover and I have our private little nickname for each other engraved in our engagement-rings as well, but that’s a secret I’ll never tell.

WHAT WE LOVE

SNOOZER LOSER

June 2010 | SCOUT Magazine | www.myscoutmagazine.com


THE STYLIST

Sara Darling

When did your love of fashion begin? I was into fashion since I was a nipper! I am the youngest of three so had a few hand me downs which I made my own by working with belts and turning up or wearing inside out! It helped that my mum was a fabulous dressmaker and we used to go out fabric shopping for a girls day out! Often that was more fun than actually clothes shopping as I could tell her exactly what I wanted and she could make things especially for me.. I then put on fashion shows, where I modeled my new designs wearing shoes that were far too big for me! What are some of the things you like most about being a fashion stylist? The variety of work - each day is different and I get to chat to new people all the time! I also get to see lots of different places and travel; I am also lucky enough to work with some very talented people- be it photographers, hair and make up teams, bands and celebrities. It is a great creative melting pot where you can never get bored. You can also never switch off which suits my personality and when you love your job it doesn't seem like work!

Do you find yourself subconsciously styling friends, family and people you encounter? Absolutely! I have compliments Tourettes syndrome!! When someone looks good, I cannot help but tell them. If I see something that I think will suit a friend or someone in my family I am constantly snapping things up for impromptu gifts and as I am so influenced by street style and what people wear that I often make suggestions to people I know without even realising!

What advice would you give to an up and coming stylist? Network network network! Styling is such a fabulous profession to be in and there is lots of stiff competition so you need to work your butt off for free to build your contacts, trust from PR agencies and your reputation. When you make friends with the right PR agencies, designers and
