Meet the member: Patsy and Steven from Moxon
We recently headed down the OXO Tower on South Bank to pop in and see the lovely Moxon London at their launch event - a room full of interior heaven and gift inspiration. We thought after their big launch it was only right to see what team Moxon (Patsy and Steven) have planned for the upcoming year and how they spend their weekends in the city…
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
MOXON London has been going for 2.5 years!
DESCRIBE YOUR PRODUCT IN 3 WORDS
Design Focused Stuff (We span a lot of product categories because we make our selection based on the brand story and their products, we aren't confined to one category we kinda just work with people who inspire us!)
WHERE ARE YOU BASED (STUDIO/HOME)?
We have just recently moved into a studio in the OXO in South London. Getting used to commuting with the rest of London has been a huge shock to the system but the studio is great, my walk to work involves walking down Southbank past the Tate and opposite St Pauls so I can't really complain!
WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE MOXON…
I worked in corporate sales for Vodafone and then trained for a short time as a Fashion buyer. Neither of them were great but I learned a lot from them both and ended up doing something I love.
BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT WHILST RUNNING YOUR BRAND?
Good question and something we don't stop to think about enough as business owners! As soon as you have achieved something you are racing on to the next thing without really appreciating where you have come from. I guess looking back being in stocked in Paul Smith and Liberty, just because those are two of my personal favourite brands.
IN THE NEXT YEAR YOU WANT TO..
Take on more designers to really help grow our range and represent more emerging talent.
There are so many independents in the UK that need to discover emerging designers without the time to do so. We really wanna help!
FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN YOUR CITY
EAT and discover a new part of London. I live and work in South East I love it but every so often I have to force myself out. My favourite things to do is go up to Hackney and grab Port and Tonic in Sager and Wilde and then head across to the Marksman for dinner. Day time wise I LOVE visiting Gift shops and museums, getting lost in Barbican is a must do.
BUCKET LIST OF PLACES TO VISIT
LA to visit the Eames house and all the amazing retail stores there, maybe next year!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A MEMBER OF PR DISPATCH FOR?
For around 6 months now. It is a great community and the tools are so intuitive. The PR dispatch team really care about each person's business and are so passionate and knowledgeable.
