Talk to us about Ninety Fly, and what made you start it?
I would go raves kitted out and always had people asking me where I bought my old skool clobber. No one really caught onto eBay so I was picking up rare bits at next to nothing.
I would meet people at raves and they would ask me to get some clothes, and if I was going to a rave that following weekend (was quite a community of ravers then, we would all go same raves on weekends).
So I would spend my week finding bits online, then meet them in the club toilets the following week and sell whatever I had. Proper del boy, I know. I got quite a name for myself and got bored of doing toilet meet-ups, so I decided to start a page to sell everything on a platform.
Instagram just started, so I really was one of the first people who started selling stuff online; a year after this, my brother and I began Wavey Garms. We set up a FB page where people could buy/sell ‘Wavey Garms’ I guess the rest is history.
