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-

Styling by Angel Johnson + Hair/Make Up by Katelyn Galloway

meet BRIANNA FALCONE Model By Day….

Yoga Goddess and Songbird by Night.

PG:  Tell us a little about who Brianna is outside of modeling.

BF: Outside of modeling my life revolves around yoga and music.  I’ve been doing yoga for about 5 years and teaching for almost 2 1/2 years.  Music on the other hand is something I’ve been doing ever since I can remember.  I started singing in my first choir at the age of 4, writing my own music by the age of 8, and playing guitar at 10.  It’s been my biggest passion ever since.

PG:  Who/What are your inspirations?

BF:  My mom is a huge inspiration of mine.  She’s an amazing human being.  I’ve learned so much about living a meaningful and happy life from her.  Musically I’m inspired by an endless list of incredible musicians including Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Regina Spector, Ingrid Michaelson, Bob Dylan, John Mayer, Damien Rice, Amy Winehouse etc.

PG:  Tell us your mantra for life.

BF:  Happiness comes first.  Only when you’re happy can you ever truly inspire, love, or make a difference.

PG:  Where do you usually find yourself on, say, a Wednesday night?

BF:  I spend most of my Wednesday nights at a yoga class on the west side or at this amazing concert venue in Venice called the Witzend where a lot of rad local musicians and friends play.

fresh face friday: CLINTON

Introducing….

CLINTON +

Age: 20

Hometown: Las Cruces, New Mexico

When I scouted Clinton at a Lil Death party a few weeks ago, I immediately knew that he was Photogenics material.  He’s the kind of guy  you just sign on the spot, ya know? So we did, and we’re SUPER stoked to have him on our roster.  Now, get to know him.  I foresee a big future for this guy.

PG:  What brought you to LA? 

C:  I  moved out to Los Angeles to live in a van in Venice Beach in order to not only start a new life, but to also pursue music.

PG:  What do you do…like, what makes your world go ’round?  

C:  Music.  I’ve been playing drums since I was 8 years old and piano since I was about 14.  Playing the piano got me into composition so I started doing electronic music, and that’s pretty much what I do now.

PG:  Share! What’s on your playlist right now? 

C:  My playlist right now includes a Los Angeles producer known as Nosaj Thing.  He’s doing awesome things right now for the industry.  I’m also into Beach House, and a lot of old dance hits from the 70s and 60s.

PG:  Some of your favorite artists of all time…GO! 

C:  Favorite artists would have to be Coldplay, The Doors, Claude Debussy, and Daft Punk.

PG: Thanks for letting us into your world.  From the Photogenics Fam….WELCOME!!! We know you’ll kill it!

Sarah Jordan in URBAN OUTFITTERS DENIM 2012

YES!!! Sarah Jordan in the new Urban Outfitters Denim 2012 video.  Seriously, I’m shaking in my summer wedges at the thought of the kind of debauchery I face this weekend in SF with my closest slash craziest friends, the kind of debauchery we only encounter in our twenties when we’re expected to be all responsible and such. Watching this just makes me yearn for the care free good old years of harmless high school mayhem.  So, some words of wisdom for all you young bucks:

“ENJOY YOUR YOUTH!!” and live this video.
