Backstage with SCOTTxSCOTT…

It’s pretty clear that we’re super careful about how we contribute during LA Fashion Week.  There’s definitely a method to our madness, and we support a handful of brands for very different reasons.

In this case, B:SCOTT and now SARAH SCOTT have been friends of Photogenics from the start, and we’re proud to have been a part of their recent AW ’13 show.  I got to hang out backstage to catch our guys and dolls being ridiculous before they stormed the runway and put on a lively, trap-nasty show.   Cheers to SCOTTxSCOTT!!!  So fly… – M-

“Waiting For Tomorrow To Wake Up” x MONSTER CHILDREN x

Last week, I met up with Nicci and art department babe, Emily at the launch of Monster Children’s 37th Issue and the premier of Mike Piscitelli’s short film, “Waiting for Tomorrow to Wake Up.”  The party took place underneath a freeway overpass in a grungy studio/venue called Wild Honey Studios.  Something really stuck with me about that night.  There was something really surreal about it.

It was already a dreamy night to begin with. The rain and fog always do it to me. When I arrive, there’s a crowd of low-key skate/fashion people milling around. The low light from the garden lights make it difficult, but I finally spot my friends vibing out next to Erin Wasson. I reach for a beer, check out the short film looping on the seamless, go out to hear the band, and I look up to see this:

The best part is that the short film featuring our models Torian, Brianna, Leore, and Dakota is really fucking good.  It made me feel nostalgic for the days when the word “consequences” had no bearing on the decision to get into some trouble…when we felt free and untouchable.

Check out the short film’s editorial companion piece in Issue 37 of Monster Children Magazine available for purchase by clicking the cover below:

fashion week…SKINGRAFT SS ’13

     Our relationship with Skingraft has always been one of friendship and admiration.  We’ve been  supporting the LA based brand for many years now because they represent the promise of an unbelievable future for LA fashion and an elevated market that holds its own with regard to high design.

     This season, Skingraft presented a Spring Summer ’13 collection poolside at the Mondrian Hotel where Torian, Zinta, Dani, Nickayla, Breanna, Walker, and Simba stared motionless into the crowd of  spectators and media who were no doubt drooling over the structured, sports-inspired designs.   It was stoic, statuesque, mesmerizing…a dark display of eye candy for the Mad Max-obsessed.   Not to mention, killer hair+make up by Smashbox Cosmetics and Black Banditz.

Here’s a backstage look at the makings of a great presentation.  -M-

part two: Smashbox Presents: PLAY MOCA with ACTIVE CHILD and Zola Jesus…

All I have to say is at least someone from the Photogenics team was able to make it to this!!!  I thought she could share the experience and make all the suckers who missed it wish we hadn’t.

Active Child…A Review For The Rest of Us.

Words and Photos by Nicci Arone

         Active Child’s music makes me feel like I want to live in a cabin on the moon.  So it only makes sense that their latest LP, “You Are All I See,” is self described as a, “sonic ambition…that sounds cosmically huge and yet intimate all the same.”

        I saw them once before at an indoor venue a few months ago, and the stage was set up as a mirror image of electronic and classical instruments with Grecian inspired statues as cornerstones.  The mix of this old and new world energy created an intimate experience that felt like I was listening to a choir of electronic angels singing to me from the dreamscape of my imagination.

         I didn’t think it could get any better than that.  But it did, last Friday at the MOCA Geffen’s outdoor venue with an incredible view of downtown Los Angeles as the back drop, slow motion water visuals projected on stage, warm summer wind on my skin and some of the most energetic and stylish music lovers LA has to offer.  And really, who even plays a harp anymore!? Classically trained front man, Pat Grossi, sure does.  The dreamy juxtaposition of electronic beats and classical string melodies creates a sound that pleases even the most hipster-ish of auditory palettes.

For me, music is one of the last remaining  innovative art forms.  I go to a lot of shows, and I have to say that these days, while I always enjoy them, it’s super rare that I find myself being totally in the moment and sitting back in complete awe as I’m taken over by the physical force of bliss.  Active Child does that for me, and I really hope it does for you too.  Just catch a fucking show and see for yourself!

part one: Smashbox Presents: PLAY MOCA with ACTIVE CHILD and Zola Jesus…

Tonight, there’s a ridiculously awesome thing happening at the MOCA Geffen.  MOCA has teamed up with our friends at Smashbox to create these multi-media events called Play MOCA, which is essentially 3 summer parties where art and music get together and make sweet, sweet love.

Tonight, one of my all time favorite bands is playing:  ACTIVE CHILD along with Zola Jesus who is equally cool as fuck.

Unfortunately, (and also fortunately for me) I’ll be camping along the Kern River, and I will be missing this.  Booo…I’m a total Sad Sally about it. =(  So, I thought I’d leave you all with an Active Child video to get you in the mood for an inspiringly dreamy weekend.  See you on the flip side, everyone!  I’ll be soaking it all in.

designed by LA: ROARK, GENERIC SURPLUS, + FREMONT

Last night at Drai’s Hollywood could have been a blur, as these things usually are, but given my new position here I’ve decided that vigilance and observation are two things I must perfect as part of my job.  So, instead of letting the good times roll (well, not entirely) I made sure to document the event through my eyes and share it for what it was: a cluster fuck of maddeningly stylish heavy-hitters gathered to celebrate three brands that play a big role in giving LA the legitimacy it’s so seldom granted in the fashion world.

 To Roark, Generic Surplus, and Fremont:

Thank you! Shit’s legit, for real. You make us proud.
