Hi Ladies and Lads,


Sorry this took a few days to get up, it seems I have spent more time on airplanes in the last 5 days than I have on the ground...  so finally...

The Dirty Laundry Show opened this weekend and if you have not gone down to Nuuanu Gallery yet to check it out, get down there before all of the custom wearable artwork is gone... snag yourself one... or two.. we did!

Here are some fun shots from the opening!




Above: co curator Jesse who designed the "Cave Cave Deus Videt" shirt above and his lovley lady!
Have you seen the girl above? click here for more of her creative genius!

Looking toward the future of wearable art is artist Alan Konishi who created his shirts (example behind far left) with the help of his family.

More to come in DISfunkshion Magazine!

Bisou,

D






You are invited to the gallery opening, First Friday (September 5):

September 4-20, 2008

Dirty Laundry is an exhibition devoted to the concept of potential.
Using stains as an integral part of the design and fashion of a t-shirt, the show seeks
to shift perceptions that something (or someone, for that matter) can be ruined.

Each artist has been given 6 shirts to stain using a medium of their choice.
After "ruining" each shirt, the artist creates a custom design that works with the shape, size and medium of the stain.
Those designs are hand-printed onto the shirts, thus making the stain an integral part of the apparel's fashion.

All of these amazing artists in Hawaii! 

You can't miss this!

Here are some preview photos!













Damsel Magazine just posted these new photos we worked on! I am so happy I finally get to share them with all of you!

Of course they would not be SO AMAZING without stylist, Jessica B. Simpson's Fed Ex boxes and styling tips and tricks or  the beautiful Michelle from Jet Set Models! I also got the chance to work with Jessica Hoffman again, which is always LOVELY and Pia from SooZou gave us access to her own personal Garden of Eden up in Pacific Heights! It was a magical Day!







Bisou!

Honey Girl Waterwear chose me to shoot their fall/holiday line and we had so much fun playing on the beach in Portlock and in the cool old VW van!   Here are the ads! This first one is for Free Surf Magazine.  Hoku in green will be for Heavy Water Magazine. Such good times with these girls and SUCH Cute Bikinis!

This last photo is my favorite! Hoku and her sister Pili (who was graciously holding the reflector for me!) were having a good laugh and I managed to catch it! I love it when that happens! Plus, there is nothing like an old VW bus for a great photo! Of course no photo shoot in Hawaii would be complete without Makeup Artist Jessica Hoffman. Lucky for me, we get to work together more and more these days! 







Bisou,

A friend of mine told me yesterday that she doesn't care about the rules, she threw the "rules" out, started her own magazine and, 6 months later is a smashing success. Quoting Marc Jacobs she says, "I  don't follow any rules because like any other form of art, fashion is subjective." So, in honor of her devotion and success and because her 4th issue is hitting news stands today here is a little preview! 

Bisou,

Daeja
