Challenging the status quo; Monozygotics – a Multi-disciplinary Creative Collective


In this first series of Glitch #EXPOSED interviews, we dive deep into the work of twin sisters Scarlet & Daisy Riley founders of Monozygotics; a multi disciplinary creative collective discussing their path to establishing their brand, their values and how they are challenging the status quo by re-evaluating the Fashion Industry.

Who is Monozygotics?

We always give them full credit for their skills no matter how small, which may sound like a given, but giving credit where credit is due is an area in which the fashion industry really needs to step up.

What is it like to work with a sibling? Who calls the shots? And what do you each bring to the table that "makes it work"?

What lead you to approach a design career within the fashion sector?

Scarlet Riley

How has your studies impacted your career now? Do you feel more prepared, inspired, to tackle the industry?

Monozygotics is “Always looking for collaborations and looking to share our ideas and inspirations.” Which has been one of your favourite collaborations to date and why?

Are you working on a new project?

Daisy Riley

Have you made any discoveries as a design brand? i.e. Materials, Techniques, Technology. Consider Sustainability and the future of fashion.

What do you think are the biggest challenges for the industry in the years to come and what opportunities can be found from these?

What role will technology and or sustainability play in this?

Your brand values say, “we want to change the fashion industry” What do you want to change and how will you do it?

We need the industry to be sustainable, which we attempt to combat with our designs by refusing to use anything new as so much already exists and becomes waste.

We aren’t necessarily saying that everything we think is right, but that’s not the point, regardless of whether people agree or disagree with what we say, the whole idea is to get people thinking independently, questioning things, making their actions meaningful, and actually having a conversation about these things.
