ONE FINE BUNCH
One Fine Bunch is just what Palm Sunday needed. Its a platform for artists to create original content on a monthly basis. Its like joining the gym with a friend. You have to go, and more than that, you “want” to go. One Fine Bunch is an exercise in interpreting a theme and creating something whether it be a photograph, a written piece or a pair of sunglasses. Odette Mattha is our Billy Blanks, and OFB is our Tae Bo. We are so honoured to be part of this talented group and thankful we get to flex this muscle on a regular basis.
Our first series that we did was themed Adoration. We shot Kat’s Baba, who just turned 92 last week! She is also the Cover Girl that is gracing our homepage. The process for Baba was to have her wear wigs and hair pieces that celebrate the decades she has witnessed, fashion that she has seen come and go and come again. Wigs and hair pieces are a methodical process in which you have to sew in wefts of hair, to add thickness and length. Sometimes they have to be boiled and steamed. Its wild stuff. Cc.

*shout out to Toilet Paper magazine and Seletti World for making the sickening and intriguing tablecloth we used for our background. Food is love.
This Months theme is IN BLOOM. March is that magical time of year when the clocks go forward, Spring Equinox happens and serotonin returns to normal levels.
This edition we chose to submit a video. It was an organic thing that happened at the end of the shoot (typical) when things were wrapping up and pizza and champagne were being served to our hardworking and hungry models. The girls were just dancing around and listening to music and things took a very chill turn..
We had always planned to have them in a tundra setting for the originals stills, however we did team up with Tyler Von Muehlen of Von Pixel who is a master data bender, breaker of technology, video game developer, grill master etc etc. He made the alpine tundra/Yukon come to life, in bloom. Stef and Tiff were amazing and delivered not just with dancing and eating but lending us their hair. Colouring the girls hair’s was the obvious choice here, so we took Tiff into a flaming hot Cheetos base with clip in AeroMint fringe. Stef got a blown out floral Monet inspired tye dye section on one side, finished with a tiny baby crimper called Kink…actually. Its made by Hai. Enjoy the show, and don’t be S.A.D. anymore.
**This blog post was to introduce you to One Fine Bunch, and the work that we do with them. We will be posting everything to a separate gallery that you can find in the menu section on the homepage. The full video clip will be there too!
