FunkyFunYou was established in July 2017 by Simona & Amy, two young, like-minded creative girls who met at RMIT University in Melbourne.
Simona majored in a Masters of Fashion Entrepreneurship. She has always been one to experiment with fashion and style, especially unique accessories and jewellery. The initial idea for FunkyFunYou came to Simona when she found that people around her were so excited and fascinated by her distinctive accessories. This overwhelming interest encouraged her to create her own brand, with products for people who are looking for accessories that are anything but ordinary.
Amy was studying a Masters of Media at RMIT University, when she met Simona. Having had experience in architecture, design and video production, Amy could quickly bond with Simona over their mutual passion for design. Like Simona, she was keen to put her skills and interests into practice, and build a label that truly represents her values and style. Amy is a driving force behind the FunkyFunYou brand identity, using her skills and knowledge to create compelling visual content.
Together, Simona and Amy have merged their skills and balanced out each others' creativity. Both Simona and Amy feel lucky and grateful to be supported by their family, mentors, and friends, which motivates them to build on their achievements, and allows their business to evolve.
FunkyFunYou accessories are shiny, colourful and nostalgic. Each piece tells a story, and is designed with materials such as figurines, toys, and flowers to evoke memories and emotions. Inspired by landscapes, art and design, each product possesses a tiny fantasy world of its own. FunkyFunYou products are not just accessories, they are little pieces of happiness and joy.
FunkyFunYou is a slow fashion brand, with all products being made by hand. No old products are thrown away or damaged, and any left-over materials are kept to be donated or re-used in workshops.
All materials are toxin-free, and only high quality, professional-grade resin is used.
