Last month, my university had the exciting opportunity to be the first to visit Pretty Little Thing HQ. We were going to their main HQ based in Manchester, but they also have offices in London and LA.
The building we arrived at looked quite normal, but when we noticed the PLT taxi, we knew we were in the right place. We were given pink passes to enter the building which made it all the more exciting! The main entrance is exactly how I had expected it, full of pink! They had their signature unicorn print all over the walls and a life-size one in the corner. We were then greeted by Dimitri, who had planned a fun day for us, with tours and talks!
We were taken around the entire building, seeing everyone hard at work, doing socials, design meetings and more! It was nice to see how relaxed and happy everyone was there, also super comfy in their loungewear! We had interesting chats with some of the team, including PR and marketing, it was really inspiring and definitely got us excited for the future!
My favourite room was the filming room! It was a dream, full of pink, with a gorgeous fluffy carpet and velvet chairs! That’s where a lot of their online content is filmed with Youtubers and other influencers, making Tiktok’s and doing hauls!
My favourite part had to be with the styling team! We were able to look around the dressing room and style an outfit, to be photographed alongside one of the PLT models! It was fascinating seeing the models that we see online, walking in and out of the studio rooms having their photos taken instantly to perfection! It’s crazy how quick it all happens!
It was such an amazing experience and the team was lovely! A great way to spend my first trip to Manchester and I will definitely be back!
