posted on Friday, 20th October 2017 | find under Behind the Scenes
We work with some pretty awesome women from around the world in over 50 shops from London to San Francisco. To help you get to know us better, we've been spending time with #TeamSB. Meet Mo from Tribeca and Emily from No.1 Carnaby.

Mo, Tribeca

Mo @monarasimhan, 21 has lived in five countries including India (her favourite place), Japan, the UK, USA and Canada. She has now settled in New York and lives on the Upper East Side.

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Creative, ambitious and honest.

Where do you live?

I live on the Upper East Side, steps away from our Madison shop.

 Favourite Sweaty Betty piece?

My favourite piece is my Akasha Jumper in Grey, it makes me feel like I am being hugged all day. Followed closely by my oxblood Power Leggings, as they take my workout look to the next level.

What’s your favourite thing to do in your free time?

I love to photograph New York (I shoot in film) and to write poetry.

Guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is watching Narcos and any action oriented historical drama in my pjs.

Secret local hangout?

I love to go dancing so my local hangout downtown is The Jane in the West Village. For a good drink though, I love Angel's Share in Greenwich Village, it's a hidden speakeasy bar behind a Japanese restaurant and has a great atmosphere.

Emily, No.1 Carnaby

Yoga teacher, model and You Tuber, Emily @emily_and_yoga discovered a love for yoga while travelling in Thailand. She now lives in East London and teaches yoga around the city, alongside working at our Central London flagship, No.1 Carnaby.

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Sassy, bubbly, romantic.

Where do you live?

Bethnal Green in East London.

Favourite Sweaty Betty piece?

The Shakti Knit Jumper is my go-to right now, as anything warm and cosy with a high neck is a winner for me. I'm also in love with the Ultimate Bra, its super supportive and a little bit sexy.
 
What’s your favourite thing to do when you're not working?

Teaching yoga obviously! I teach around the city and run weekly classes in Shoreditch. When I'm not doing this, I love to hang out with my housemates. My ideal Sunday is a trip down to Columbia Road to buy fresh flowers, before heading for a large roast dinner in one of the pubs nearby. 
 
Guilty pleasure?

Peanut Butter and Ryan Gosling
 
Secret local hangout?

There's a lovely Portugese coffee hangout in Bethnal Green called A Corner of the World. They have beautiful hanging plants, cool books to read and delicious beetroot brownies.
