After spending the last two weeks offline climbing mountains in Tasmania and presenting a new show at Adelaide Fringe, I arrived in Melbourne yesterday to shape down the catwalk at the Perfect Runway fashion show for one of my favourite designers: Fizzy Fingers
This new collection- AZUKAR BAZOOKA – designed in collaboration with Mexican artist METEORO blew me away… When I saw these designs, I felt like I had been transported to my ultimate rainbow paradise I had created in my head!
It brings me joy to be part of something so special and full of magic and I adore seeing my friends taking their creations to the next level
I think what I’m trying to say is… You rock my world Rutter!
Here are some shots I took backstage before the show…
If you don’t know of her by now, it’s time to get with the program and embrace the queen drag terrorist of the underground of RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!
It’s time to wake up world and taste, feel and love one another again living each moment like it’s the last
I will be performing my new song – Don’t Copy Me for the first time with my back up dancers GANG OF SHE and let me just say, I haven’t been this excited about a show in a while…
Prepare to have your eyes and ears awakened!
African Mayonnaise is my favourite music video ever… When you take what we do to the people on the street, it’s the real life moments which are the best. You can’t script and make that shit up, it just goes to show how scared general society are of anything different and visually expressive in the flesh, hiding behind their screens…
Let’s go freaks… CAN’T WAIT!!
During my last trip to Berlin, I made a fashion film with designer Jackie Taylor for her new collection full of Egyptianesque headdresses, mirror-balled bling and masks called Going for Gold: Beeeast and I were fully body painted in gold while a film crew from Arte Tv was interviewing me for a special on Tracks ***watch here***
Below are some of my favourite shots by Jacob Hopkins from the look-book along with the short film.
Enjoy the golden journey!
One week in Tokyo and I feel more inspired than ever!
Highlights include: making my favourite music video to date wearing dream outfits (courtesy of the next level shops in Tokyo – DOG, Kitakore & GARTER) with film maker Aleksandar Dragičević starring super stylin’ kawaii goddess Hirari Ikeda and playing a rad gig thanks to Chida from Ene records.
I spent the spare time I had, getting lost in the big city, appreciating the never ending supply of manga and sacred traditional gardens.
Below are some photos from this trip. I look forward to my next one there…
I am now residing in Australia for the Summer to create in the sunshine!
Until next time…
If you don’t know of the great italian writer from the 20th century – Gabriele d’Annunzio, look him up cause he is one fascinating man
I was taken back at just how extravagantly he lived when I visited his incredible residence- The Vittoriale degli italiani (The shrine of Italian victories)
I adore his style, elegance and how over the top everything is
The scared gardens, the battleship, the huge trawler ship and many planes on his land are all to be admired
Here are some photos from my time there…
An experience I’ll remember forever!
I am tremendously pleased to announce my great friend and designer Nathan French has released his next level fashion film SAMSARA into the world…
In it you will see creatures sent from another galaxy
It was an honour to be in it. Below is the film along with behind the scenes shot I took
Enjoy this taster I made from the performance we did at Camp Cosmic earlier this year…
Today I had a lush time in the humble abode of the London based folk-art artist: Stephen Wright
So much colour and pure beauty on a 360 degree scale!
I am a sucker for anything weird and wonderful, so you can imagine how happy I was walking in this real life dream land…
Stephen uses discarded objects of everyday life to create mosaics: milk bottle tops, broken dolls, dolls eyeballs, the contents of Christmas crackers, false teeth, pen lids, crockery, and the rich pickings of a car boot sale. He has covered his whole house in toys and rainbows
Below are some photos from my adventure there…
Stephen’s house is open to the public just five days a year
I highly recommend as a fun and rewarding day out!
bumping into Tuttii Fruittii and Toni Tits along the way…
What can be described as an exquisite creature from another planet sent to us for all round soulful pleasure
A fellow Australian living a full life of colour and style in London…
I have so much love for this gem
We always have fun dancing and laughing together
And so I present to you (if you don’t know of her greatness already) Madame Mikey Woodbridge and a little video we made (in one take) recently when we were in Liverpool together
If you don’t follow her already… there is no time like now!
Somehow, unique powerful beings and experiences seem to find their way to me and I am constantly appreciating the universe for this privilege with open arms…
Right now, I’d like to talk about the special festival that is Camp Cosmic
A place in Swedish nature where people can appreciate obscure magical sounds and dance like no one is watching…
This year was my second and as long as genius superstar DJ Albion Venables puts it together, I will be involved sharing my love for performance and good music
Held in Gotland, below is a taster from my journey…
DAY ONE – warming up
Barn life aka home sweet home
DAY TWO began with a magical performance by The Body and Mind Orchestra in the midst of the rain…
When she finished playing, the rain ceased
I then played at the Camp Cosmic main stage
and later spent the early evening warming up for our show dancing with fellow shapers…
One of the main highlights for me, was seeing the out of this world performance troop WALLENBERG do their live show entering the stage from the woods and ending it IN the lake
WOW what a show… I was deeply captivated from beginning to end…
Soon after we performed…
DAY THREE (the final day)
Everyone lazed around the tropical stage by the lake enjoying the final sounds of the weekend with a very special dj set brought to us by Beeeast
and so we said our goodbyes on Monday and hope to all connect again before next year…
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED FOR THEIR BEAUTIFUL ENERGY AND MEMORIES <3
If you haven’t heard of Actually Huizenga already… It’s time you checked this feline goddess out!

This mega beauty is spreading her wings and flying high… So watch out for her and if you ever see her name on a lineup- GO WITNESS HER COSMIC POWERS FOR YOURSELF!
I am IN LOVE with Igor’s new mega italo number one hit/video
I love EVERYTHING about it!
In particular the effortless simplicity, the D.I.Y aspects, the TEN out of TEN styling and Igor’s hot bleached head!
So proud of my friends for continuing to release such great things into this dark and beautiful world…
