MessyDirtyHair: Tell me a little bit about yourself
ThatMadonnaGirl: 23 year old designer and fashion addict.
MDH: How did 'That Madonna Girl' come to be?
TMG: The idea came to me one night in a dream. After searching for similar products on the internet I couldn't find any flower headbands i liked. That day i started making them for myself. Eventually little by little it turned into a business and before I knew it I was filling out paperwork for a corporation.
MDH: So, I love your motto 'Flower Children Only', how did that come to be?
TMG: I’m not exactly sure how that motto came to be. One day I wrote it on the main page of the site and it just stuck, I feel like it goes with the company and my customers really well.
MDH: Do you personally make each halo?
TMG: I personally make a lot of the halos. But the company has grown so much so I do have a lot of help now. I wish I could still make every single one. But I want to grow the company and work on a lot of other things so it’s nice to have a couple employees helping make halos.
MDH: I see you name your halos after girls. Are they named after particular people or just for fun?
TMG: All the halos are named after my friends. And now I name them after my flower children - girls who have purchased halos. Sometimes a flower child will special order a halo and come up with an amazing design i will put it on the site and name it after her.
MDH: What is the most exciting thing that has happened to your company since starting TMG?
TMG: A lot of really cool things have happened to me since starting TMG. But I think the most exciting is every time I run into someone wearing a halo. It happens a lot but every time I am still overcome with joy. It makes me so happy that girls are enjoying my products as much as I do.
MDH: I have seen celebrities sporting TMG halos; can you give us any fun details on what that was/is like seeing celebrities wear your pieces?
TMG: It’s the most exciting thing knowing a celeb loves my product. Seeing Paris Hilton was very exciting because she absolutely loves the halos. It was so much fun because she tried on every single one and i pretty much gave her one of everything. She looks awesome in the halos.
MDH: What is the future/upcoming for TMG?
TMG: We are hoping to eventually turn TMG into a whole lifestyle and accessories brand. We want to sponsor parties and plan festivals and rage right along side the girls who buy our products. Feather earrings are coming soon and catch us Ultra Music Festival & Coachella!
