Delia, Patrick & Nigel, the office pug, started NEWBREED GIRL out of their Hollywood high-rise apartment, with just $3000 & lotsa hard work. "We had just graduated from college & had little of anything - money, skills or resources. We really didn't know what we were doing, but we also had little to lose, so we just went for it," says Delia.
"When we first started the company," explains Patrick, "we removed all the furniture from our apartment & shipped out of the kitchen. The landlord was always coming around hassling us and we were barely making the rent. We actually used to hide from him. We believed we could do this, but nobody else did.
People would tell us we were crazy. It was frickin' hard!!!"
"NewBreed Girl's head office is now located in downtown LA (thank goodness!), with a fantastic young staff who all pitch in ideas for designs," continues Delia. "It's a real team effort...we laugh a lot here. We really love what we do, & even though there is always some problem we wouldn't want to do anything else". "We take fun seriously," is our company motto!
