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-
