We interviewed Kai Michaels to get to know all the secrets of Fly Secrets.
CP: Hi Kai, thank you for accepting the invitation! How are you feeling these days? It’s a brand new world we are facing.
KM: “Hello, thank you for having me here today. Yes, it is a brand new world. No, I cannot complain. Things are moving slowly, but they are moving.”
CP: We love the idea and mindset of Fly Secrets. It tells that everything is possible when you put your mind to it! And it is a great help in the pandemic nowadays not to give up! How did you come up with the idea for your brand?
KM: “I just happened to be in my car one day. I picked up my sketchbook, and started drawing the pilot character. I thought, “I can create a whole universe for him”. At first, it was just for my eyes. When others starting noticing my art. The characters took a life of its own. People really seemed to enjoy the concept living life above. Which is the basic concept of Fly Secrets.”
CP: The clothing of Fly Secrets are not only original, but also comfortable and cozy. Was this the idea behind the design?
KM: “Yes. From the very start, all of my designs have been hand-drawn. I usually keep a sketchbook. At least one or two with me all the time. Just in case inspiration hits. As far as the clothing itself goes, the moment that I found a specific material that I liked. I put out an example of a few friends and others to receive feedback on the material. I got great results for one, and I stuck with it”
CP: You have not only the clothing, but also phone cases, basically things that are highly visible in everyday life. Do you plan to extend the accessory line?
KM: “Yes. Very much so. The accessories will be extended to, but not limited to stickers, posters, hats, socks, and backpacks. The sky’s the limit!”
CP: How long did it take you from the idea to having the full line of products?
KM: “Honestly, everything came slowly. Started from sketching to locating a printing service, getting orders put in for samples. Once those samples came back and posting pictures on social media to get feedback, then I would sit in Photoshop to produce mock-up. So I could see what they would look like virtually.”
CP: How long does the production process take?
KM: “It usually takes a week to a week in a half.”
CP: Nowadays it’s been tough times for everyone. What is your secret not to give up and stay in positive mood?
KM: “Yes, it has been a tough time. Honestly, I have been building relationships lately, and the people that I have been in contact with have been giving me great feedback. The positivity is what keeps me going.”
CP: What is your biggest dream right now?
KM: “To spread the message of Fly Secrets across the globe. I would like to open my own stores, and give a platform for up and coming artists and fashion designers as well.”
CP: What is your motivational quote of the day?
KM: “Our minds are a limitation, but we all have wings to fly. All you have to do is believe”
CP: Thank you so much, Kai, for making us Fly to the Sky today!
