What’s it like being in a shoegaze band coming from a classical background?

It’s completely different. I used to be really hard on myself when I messed up on stage because if I screwed up one note during a recital I’d get in trouble with my parents and teachers. Playing in Sugarcube has taught me to just relax and have fun with it. It’s a really cool thing to be able to create music with your best friends and perform original material for people.

Describe your approach to fashion?

I’m inspired by the 60s/70s, Impressionism, Bowie, French cinema, boys in bands, eccentric old women and my friends. My style is all over the place and I like to dress for myself. I really respect when people don’t follow trends and take a risk and wear what they want.

What do you do?

I'm a florist and a sun seeker!

How did you get into floristry?

About 3 years ago I started making bouquets in my kitchen as a hobby, I've always loved flowers and grew them from a young age. Soon after I decided to quit my job and try playing with flowers full time.

Sade Sanchez from LA WITCH

Los Angeles, United States

How did LA WITCH start?

I met band member Irita through a mutual friend. She'd been jamming with some of her friends and they were looking for a singer and a guitar player and I was looking for a band. Once we started jamming we formed L.A. WITCH. My friend from high school who I used to play in a two piece band with, Ellie, came into the mix about a year ago after we lost our original drummer who moved to N.Y.

How does living in Los Angeles inspire the music you create?

I was born and raised in L.A. so I guess I don't know any different but it's hard to say. Sometimes I wonder if I would write differently had I grown up somewhere else. I love Los Angeles, it's my home and I am proud of it. Well, it's a love/hate thing. Mostly love.

What do you do?

I'm a stylist and writer.

Where do you find inspiration?

I work quite closely with my boyfriend who is a photographer and we are always watching films together - italian neorealism is a favourite of ours. Also nothing beats riffling through vintage stores to find cool pieces to use in shoots, you just never know when a pink beret might come in handy.
