2017 looks set to be a cool adventure here at Fuelled by Female, myself and Daniel having kick-started January with our main objectives already laid down.
When you are multi-faceted and passionate about all aspects of your work, it is easy to continually create, the main driver being the over-riding vision we have as individuals and as a collaborative team. To ensure we give each aspect of our work the attention it fully deserves, we have prioritised our time and associated tasks into manageable monthly targets this year, devising a way to seamlessly weave our products and skills so that our Fuelled by Female brand grows and develops as we believe it should.
Already we have our first exhibition scheduled from April – June in the Lounge Bar at Burnley Mechanics, this being an exciting prospect and one we can use to extend our reputation regionally. Towards the end of January, we launch our 12 Inches:12 Women music campaign, the aim being to share the music at a national level in a strategic way. I won’t divulge the finer details of this campaign, but it will be fun and impacting in a way in which Daniel and I work best.
The next book in our range, Enter The Mistress, will soon be published, our goal being to bring it to market before March 21st (our wedding anniversary). Initially, it was going to be a straightforward publication, however we have since decided that a series of black and white images will be great in this piece of work, hence the delay in its release date.
Based on the success of the previous live music events, we have now set a series of dates throughout 2017 for further performances, our ethos being female songwriters and musicians coming to enjoy intimate performances in the sanctity of the studio. Details about this can be seen on the Live Music page, and if you are a performer or you know anyone who would be perfect for this, then please pass on our details. Also, put these dates in your diary. The number of guests at each event will be kept to a maximum of 12, so come and hang out with us for a few hours – chatting, laughing, inspiring, listening.
January will also see the launch of the wonderful Angie D’Silva jewellery range, a bespoke collection only available via our boutique. Angie has crafted jewellery for approximately 30 years now, the dolls face pieces she makes for us being her way of integrating the magic of memories into unique items of jewellery. All hand made, every piece is different, meaning that when you purchase a bespoke piece from us you truly are investing in something nobody else has.
It is with genuine hearts that we wish you all a very successful 2017. May you become that whom you are capable of becoming, that’s if ,of course, you have not become it already.
Joanne & Daniel.
