Back in 2014, Sophie and Hannah Pycroft launched Spectrum Collections from their garage in Barry, South Wales and have gone on to grow the business into a globally recognised, seven-figure brand that’s partnered with the likes of Disney and Paramount Pictures to name but a few…
Given that they were once told that they “had to move to London” if they were to ever be successful, I caught up with Sophie and Hannah at the end of last year to uncover all the nitty gritty details they’ve pushed through behind the scenes to not just launch but build what is now a multi-million pound company loved by thousands of beauty fans worldwide!
Covering everything from how they dealt with a warehouse fire that destroyed thousands of pounds worth of stock; their advice for how to scale sustainably and maintain momentum; not to mention, how they held their nerve when people doubted their ability to scale, what their first year of sales looked like (I’m so grateful for their honesty here!) and how Covid impacted the business… I loved, loved, loved recording this one, I have so much respect for them both so I really do hope you enjoy it.
