Female Narratives is an all-female collective and creative agency based in London. We sent four of their ladies in their favourite WEKOKO items to WE ARE FSTVL and asked them some questions.
Meet Paige, Tijana, Kenzie and Cecile and learn all their festival tips!
Cecile Sinclair, Actress
Favourite festival: This year so far – it’s been Gala festival in Brockwell park (near Brixton) where I got to see my favourite disco, Studio 54-original, DJ Nicky Siano play. I love all types of music but disco is the only one where I’ve seen the happiest people!
Best band you’ve seen live and where: Lorde was great at Coachella this year!
Describe your festival style in 3 words: Colourful, cool & quirky
The item you can’t go to a festival without: Glitter (and sunscreen!!)
Weirdest thing in your bag at a festival: Stickers / bindis to bejazzle up friends or strangers along the way
One piece of advice: Bring walki-talkies cos when that phone signal is out and you’ve lost everyone… or you could also just make new friends like I always do!
Favourite Wekoko piece for your next festival: Basically everything but I love the pink hat by Marell Kull – it’s a unique spin on a classic festival piece.
Model – Cecile Sinclair @cecilesinclair
Tijana, Writer + Editor
Favourite festival: Burning Man, though I’m not sure you can call it a festival
Best band you’ve seen live and where: Would have to be Guns N’ Roses at Coachella last year
Describe your festival style in 3 words: Utilitarian, layered, many-pocketed
The item you can’t go to a festival without: My dancing shoes
Weirdest thing in your bag at a festival: Toilet paper – but that’s not weird at a festival, that’s a major key
One piece of advice: From experience you don’t actually need that much with you while you’re at a festival, it just becomes a hassle to carry and worry about. Try consolidating your essentials into a fanny pack so your arms are free to dance. Or, even better, wear a jacket with lots of internal pockets, preferably with zips, and you’re set!
Favourite Wekoko piece for your next festival: Forever a sucker for a sequin fanny pack!
Model – Tijana Tamburic @tamburic
Favourite festival: Secret garden party
Best band you’ve seen live and where: DJ Luck and MC Neat at Lovebox
Describe your festival style in 3 words: A little rocky, with a bit of glitz and usually practical.
The item you can’t go to a festival without: Afro comb
Weirdest thing in your bag at a festival: On the go tissue packs- we definitely all know why!!
One piece of advice: Always take plenty of cash! ATM machines are a definite no and they charge a fortune.
What is your favourite WeKoko piece? The Delinquent denim jacket and I love all the Claudia Pink designs.
Model – Paige Drury-Lawrence @paigepbear
Kenzie, Singer + Songwriter
Favourite festival: Just got back from FORM Arcosanti and my head is still in the clouds
Best band you’ve seen live and where: Seeing Omar Souleyman at FORM was pretty special. Especially in a festival setting – everyone was dancing so hard, it was wild
Describe your festival style in 3 words: Space flower child
The item you can’t go to a festival without: So basic, but a water canister. Stay hydrated y’all.
Weirdest thing in your bag at a festival: I don’t know if it’s that weird but snacks. And wet wipes. I’m my mother’s daughter
One piece of advice: Surround yourself with people on a similar wave. You’re not going to get to see everything so do/see/hear what you can and be okay with that.
Favourite Wekoko piece for your next festival: That rad silver streamer jacket.
