What's your 'day' job?
I work at London College of Fashion as the Study Abroad Coordinator. I coordinate the Study Abroad programmes for students coming to LCF from overseas. I’m lucky in that I can work flexible hours, so I work 35 hours in four days and have Fridays off to concentrate on my side hustle! I’ve worked here for nearly three years in three different roles, and also graduated from LCF in 2014, so I’m quite attached.
What’s your side hustle?
I run a small business, called Issay Issay, which makes hip hop and R’n’B illustrated kitchenwares. I draw the faces of my favourite hip hop artists (and a few wildcards – bald Britney circa 2007) and then transfer them onto enamelware. It’s been going for nearly 18 months now and I have three, wholesalers including one in Belgium!
