What an amazing time… Double in size this year with 600 people in total, it was as wonderful as ever
I feel privileged to have been part of it three years in a row now watching it evolve and blossom dancing to an array of my favourite musical genres non stop all weekend
Below are some shots I took of the magic that took place…
I am in love with these two videos from ADANOWSKY‘s new album – ADA (out now)
He is rocking two solid looks I adore and styling it out in every way with so much beautiful imagery…
I look forward to creating together this year in Paris!
Cosmic superstars Skip&DIE are at it again with their super fresh new hit and video – SPACE GIRLS!
Entranced from beginning to end…
“Fuck gravity! Blow it up! In this grave world of greed, injustice and trouble, we’ve got to learn to love ourselves and each other. We are strong, beautifully diverse, layered beings – each and every one of us – yes, that means YOU too! And we hold visions of utopias in our hands. From birth, to death, to rebirth, we sow our seeds of hope & revolution. Together, we will overcome trauma and division. We don’t care what ‘type’ of women we are, we’re planets, we’re SPACE GIRLS!”
– Cata Pirata
In the last year, I have journeyed to many magical places on this planet. I captured a few of them and made a film…
It is to be projected at an exhibition in Shanghai next month
The last shots with my moon sista Lexi were taken in my old bedroom in London
Enjoy this taster into my every day life… Welcome to Gaff E world!
Fast-forward seven years to when I was in Berlin last where I decided to make a video for it.
It’s a track that always makes me smile and dance. So I present to you this video and track if you haven’t heard it. You can download it for free HERE
Hope you like our freak out strobe dance session!
Dancing in the dark is the best…….
The footage was shot and mixed direct to tape by maverick direttore Alexi Ferrari (Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders)
Watching it for the first time, I was transfixed by every beat and shape made…
I DIG THIS SO MUCH!
Kirin just gets better and better… So proud of him!
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
