What is your name, and what is your job title at Belldandy?
Hi, my name is Nelly and I’m the founder and manager of Belldandy.
When did you open and what’s changed since then?
I opened in 2005, with only a few gothic items. Back then, there were no pinup, rockabilly, kawaii or steampunk fashion in Europe. Now I have grown up, and I have with more than 4000 references, several European and American brands, some exclusivity and all kinds of alternative fashion.
What did you do before Belldandy?
Before Belldandy, I was a telecom engineer. Nothing to do with fashion, but I’ve always loved unusual and eccentric fashion.
What’s the best part about your job?
The best part is seeing and receiving the new collections ! I love looking at the new catalogs or going to fashion shows to see before everyone else what will be available in the coming months. When I receive them in my shop it’s like opening Christmas presents.
What is your favorite thing to eat for Breakfast?
I love blueberry muffins
What is the most important appliance in your home?
My computer, so I can stay connected with my webshop, my customers, social network, checking the new products from the brands I love.
Do you have any irrational fears?
I’m afraid of frogs, I can’t explain it, but when I see a frog I’m completely paralyzed.
Do you like Sci-Fi movies?
Yes of course. My favorite is Blade Runner, but I’m also a fan of all the 80’s movies like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters…
Have you ever ridden a zebra?
No, but I’d prefer to ride a unicorn !
What are you most excited about in the coming months? (Feel free to answer for yourself or for Belldandy)
I always try to expend my range for Belldandy, so I plan to always have more products, and also a mobile website. I also can’t wait for my next holidays to enjoy summer with my boyfriend.
Anything we forgot to ask?
I’d like to thanks all Sourpuss team, you’re all lovely and It’s really a pleasure to meet you and talk to you. Thanks also for your wonderfull collections !
