Hey guys, AC here! I’ve got a riddle for you:
What’s covered in awesome artwork, located in Brisbane, and filled with the coolest people on earth? If you guessed BMHQ you’d be….WRONG!*
Introducing TRYP Brisbane.
These guys have a motto of “own the city” so whenever they touch down in a new place, like fabulous alien overlords descending from an advanced world, they hook up with a local brand who they feel is equally as cool as they are.
Spoiler, that’s us.
They’re just down the road from BMHQ, their walls are covered in commissioned graffiti art, they have spa rooms, a rooftop bar, a burger joint in their own little laneway, and oh so much more. Best part? The TRYP hotel staff are all rocking our gear as their official uniforms. Together, TRYP Brisbane and Black Milk Clothing are taking on Brisbane (and the world, but we’ll get to that in a little bit).
We caught up with Anna, housekeeper at TRYP Brisbane and certified Black Milk sharkie, about shiny things and spa rooms.
BM: How long have you been rocking Black Milk?
Anna: About two years now.
BM: What was your first piece?
Anna:Green Circuit Leggings!
BM: How about your favourite piece?
Anna: Blue Galaxy Vs Bone Machine Inside Out Dress. I missed it during the release and it’s the only piece I’ve like, cried about not getting. Then a Sharkie in the community helped me get one!
BM: So what’s your favourite thing about being part of the Black Milk community?
Anna: The community itself, everyone is so awesome.
BM: What do you think makes TRYP and Black Milk such a good match?
Anna: I think TRYP and Black Milk both use unique art styles. We’ve commissioned art from local artists, and Black Milk create their own limited works. That appreciation for cool art matches up really well.
BM: How did you react when you found out your uniform would be Black Milk?
Anna: I didn’t actually have the job yet, it was in the second round of interview for TRYP. I wore Black Milk, and when the interviewer said she liked my dress and I mentioned it was Black Milk people definitely perked up! I’d heard a rumour that Black Milk would be the uniform so I was like “Seriously?! DREAM JOB!”
BM: What was it like when you first started working at TRYP?
Anna: I was the only sharkie when we first started so I was just freaking out over being able to wear Black Milk and everyone else was just like “cool,” but now we all love it!
BM: Other than being able to rock Black Milk every day, what’s the best thing about working at TRYP?
Anna: Other than being able to wear Black Milk all day, it’s great to bring the TRYP motto “own the city” to life. I get to tell people about my favourite places in Brisbane like quirky little cocktail bars. I get to passionately talk about things I enjoy, including Black Milk!
BM: What's your favourite level of TRYP hotel?
Anna: My favourite level is the library level… because it has the spa rooms!
BM: Have you got any recommendations for the restaurant, Chur Burger, downstairs?
Anna: Yes!The pork belly and chicken burgers are both amazing.
We are super excited to be partnered with such a cool place. So the TRYP team are all rocking Black Milk, and we’ve already had one awesome location shoot there.
We’ve got so many plans for the future with our new local BFFs….Which reminds me, I was going to tell you about our plans to take over the world. In November this year we’re going to be holding our first ever SharkieCon Australia. We’ve done this in Vegas, and in Majorca, but now SharkieCon is coming home.
This is big news. Last year, our humble little birthday party had about 500 amazing hot bosses there from all over the world. SharkieCon Australia is going to absolutely blow that out of the water – this is our city and we’re taking over for an entire weekend. It’s going to be huge. And TRYP hotel is our official hotel for the event. So when you come to SharkieCon you can bunk in a room with blue mood lighting, just down from BMHQ, in a building that used to be a secret society, with graffiti murals for a view. Taking over the world here, guys.
Keep your eyes peeled, friends: more details about our inevitable world domination will be emerging soon.
*Well, ok, you’d be technically correct but that’s not the answer!
