POP ME UP
It’s time for the creative networking platform Pop Me Up to show its magic for the first time in 2016. I’m extremely excited to be a part of the event again for the very special pop up with my CHACA mandala universe.
I met up with my dear friend Masha Nieborg who is the woman behind it all for a touchdown upon her vision behind project.
I have personally for some time been dreaming about a new space where creative individuals can meet and network as well as share their creative expressions with an audience. I love how Masha have managed to create a space with open hearted atmosphere, where people can meet up with their friends and at the same time experience this gem of a pop up shop in a mix with sound and cuisine.
Interview with the creative director and designer Masha Nieborg, inventor of the network Pop Me Up.
How did you end up in Berlin?
I was always going to berlin for holiday and fun, then i met my dream man and since then moved here ;) all for love but also love for this city.
I am aware that you are running two creative businesses. I’m curious to hear how you came up with the idea for Pop Me Up?
I realised that there are many creative people in berlin who don't have the right space to sell their products. Either the markets are too focused on vintage or some shops are asking so much it’s not doable anymore.
Also my personal experience is, as working alone for the last 6 years that it’s nice to have a meeting point of other creative people to share ideas or problems etc.. So Pop Me Up was born. On this event i want people to meet each other have the ability to sell, learn ect..
What is your vision/ plan about Pop Me Up. What do you want to accomplish with this project?
I would like to create a network where people can find each other for collaborations or advise or in the future even a website where they can sell for a reasonable fee.
How do you select the different designers for each pop up?
I have built up a strong network of people which I always wanted to combine somehow. So it is something that comes very easily to me with all the amazing people that I have around my in my life. I also browse the internet, go to fairs, get advice from other people.
What can we exspect for the upcoming Pop Me Up - Can you give me a brief highlight of the next Pop Me Up’s designers?
Some favourite brands reappearing again and many new fashion brands, even mini fix up massages :) It is mostly a surprise as I want people to come and experience the event them selves.
For the April edition of Pop Me Up I will be showing a selection of the CHACAmandala talisman necklace with a variety of different stones and crystals to choose from, matching the individual person’s needs.
Furthermore I will be showing a selection of unique selenite crystal lamps which I am very excited to present.
Pop Me Up will be take place on Friday April 1st 2016
