Etsy Crush of the Week- Go Chase Rabbits
I’d eat Top Ramen for a month if it meant I could own all the skirts in Go Chase Rabbits Etsy shop. Ashley is the talented creator of this geek chic Etsy shop. I’m sure I’ll be seeing geek girls sport her adorable skirts at cons and I’ll be one of them! Shout out to my internet friend and stylish geek blogger Kristin of On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink for showing me Go Chase Rabbits!
Interview With Ashley of Go Chase Rabbits
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Ashley: I am 26 years old. I originally am from Michigan but moved to Manhattan when I was 18 for college. I studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and currently work as an Assistant Designer for a large brand.
What is Go Chase Rabbits origin story?
Ashley: I started Go Chase Rabbits because I really wanted to express my own personal style. I am very girly and quite nerdy and wanted to wear things that suited my personality. I kept seeing all of these great ideas for clothing and I really wanted to make them my own. I love making things for the everyday girl. I love hearing the fun stories from my customers and it’s really what encourages me to continue creating and expanding.
Which have been some of your favorite pieces to make?
Ashley: I love making my R2D2 skirt, I’ve gotten such an overwhelming response to it, I would never have thought it would take off like it has. I had to create a printed version because of the demand as it allows me to make them for more people.
Do you have any plans for future designs?
Ashley: I am working on more Mario skirts, as well as custom requests for Harry Potter. I also just finished the printed version of my TARDIS which I hope to have up very soon.
Ashley: I am always taking suggestions for skirts and do make all my skirts made to each customer’s measurements. It does take time though, usually 2-3 weeks for me to make.
Who is your favorite doctor and favorite companion?
Ashley: David Tennant is definitely my favorite, I love him in almost anything he does!
I’m a proud Tennant fangirl as well. What else are you a fangirl for?
Ashley: I have so many things I’m interested in, i’m very eclectic. I definitely love Star Wars and classic video games. I also love anything to do with fairy tales, especially the darker versions (I’m a HUGE Tim Burton fan).
If you were on a deserted island what would video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring?
Ashley: Ohh that’s a good question:
Video Game- Super Mario Kart on SNES (I spent hours playing that when I was younger with my brother)
Book- Alice in Wonderland (This is my favorite book, it’s also the inspiration for my company name! :) )
TV Show- Big Bang Theory (I’ll forever watch reruns of this show!)
