ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
When: 11-12 September 2015
Where: Sun Studios in Alexandria, NSW
11 creatives from different backgrounds, including music, dance, art and sport. Mostly based in Sydney, with the exception of UV Boi who flew in for the day from Brisbane, they're a group who know each other and of each other's work, whether it be playing at the same gigs, or share mutual friends in the industry. As actor/musician Sophie Lowe said in an interview with i-D magazine, "I was really excited to be involved, because I saw all of the other people on board and I really look up to a lot of them."

The team behind the shoot
Creative agency Whybin hosted the team, which includes seasoned photographer Rene Vaile, who had previously shot for the likes of ASOS and Wrangler; and stylist and long-time collaborator Kelvin Harries. Hairstylist Chris Coonrod and makeup artist Naomi McFadden created individual looks for each talent, whether it be funky braids for Luen Jacobs, a hot pink lip for KLP, or a winged eye for Amrita.
The shoot showcased the top young fashion brands like MinkPink, Bec & Bridge and Keepsake. Denim was also well-represented including Australian brands Nobody Denim, and Neuw Denim, alongside international brands J Brand, Citizens of Humanity, and Articles of Society. Menswear brands The Academy Brand and Deus Ex Machina also took part. See all the looks.
