Hannah Gillespie and Neesha Champaneria

Hannah Gillespie and Neesha Champaneria met in a stairwell in 2004 and discussed jazz music, The goose Man, and their dissatisfaction with studying fashion.

Subsequently they emigrated to New York City for some time, dwelling in handmade huts built by a psychotic 90s Goth French woman who also dwelled in the roof top apartment in China Town with her aged cat who had never stood on the ground. Spoons and croissants hung constantly from the ceiling.

Hannah Gillespie and Neesha Champaneria graduated from Northumbria University with First Class degrees in Fine Art in 2008 and are now living in Newcastle, running a successful fashion and kitten breeding business while continuing their solo and collaborative practices.
