This past weekend, I Bolt Bussed it to Baltimore to help my friends in Claire Hux shoot a music video for their new single Grab On. (Soon to be released!) The video was shot by Brian Morrison, who also shot Lazerbitch’sCoquette video. Natty Paint designed and printed some shirts for Lazerbitch a while back, check them out HERE.
The video involves a bunch of girls auditioning for a role, with the members of Claire Hux, Symbol and Daren, picking the talent. I helped style and dress the girls for the shoot, and was in it myself!
I’m not going to give anything else away, but check out the pics from the shoot here!
That’s me! In Natty Paint!
Check out the green screen!
I’ll be sure to post the video on here when it’s done!
After the Birthed from Within fashion show, my best friend and I hurried over to The Ram’s Head in Baltimore to see La Roux. I’m a huge fan of their music and their fashion sense, and have been so for quite a while now! It was always a dream of mine to be able to give them some NP, and when I found out one of my friends who also modelled for NP was a friend of one of the keyboardists in La Roux, it all came together!
So, after the show, I ended up going backstage and meeting La Roux! Elly and Mickey loved the clothes, and we got some great pics together.
Here’s a pic of Mickey signing an adoring fan’s shoe while wearing a Natty Paint vintage blazer with our dragon design!
And here’s a pic of Elly and me hanging out in the dressing room.
Everyone was very chill and down to earth, which was incredibly refreshing. It’s great to meet people my age doing what they love to do, being successful, and still being down to earth and approachable. I found out afterwards Rye Rye also stopped in to say hi after the show, I must have just missed her!
Since moving to Brooklyn, it’s been difficult to find a routine with a very busy and chaotic schedule-balancing Natty Paint and a part-time MBA all while in a new city with so many exciting things going on. Two things that were constants in my life in Baltimore while Natty Paint was starting up were my diet and exercise:being vegan and Bikram Yoga.
I’ve decided after much deliberation, I don’t want to be vegan anymore. I like having many more food options available and miss things like eggs and greek yogurt. And now I can eat other things! Like goat cheese! The list keeps going… But milk will not happen, EVER. I hate milk.
I have also decided it’s time to pick up Bikram again, as it is the ultimate way to destress, relax, and clear my head. Today was my first day returning to practice Bikram Yoga. Luckily, there’s a studio super close by in Williamsburg! YES!
After getting back from class, I see I’m tagged in new pic on Facebook of a Bikram yoga instructor wearing a Natty Paint custom Bikram Yoga Hampden shirt, standing next to Bikram Choudhury himself! EPIC!
We’re going to work on getting Bikram his very own shirt to wear at teacher training. Bengal tiger strength, bulldog determination!
This Saturday, June 5th, Natty Paint will be in a fashion show in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at Brooklyn Kingdom. We will be joined by two other designers, Symptoms Culture Shock and Jae-Woo Kim. Besides these designers there will also be a bunch of great artists, photographers and live music.
We’re really excited to be featured in it and you can find more details about this on its Facebook page. We hope to see you there!
We recently found out that Lucy Liu and Brie Larson have both bought Natty Paint items at AuH2O, a store in New York that carries some of our clothes. We are so excited about this and hope that they get their friends hooked on Natty too.
Here is a picture of the dress that Brie Larson bought:
Also, Lucy Liu was spotted by People Magazine walking right across the street from AuH2O:
These two lovely ladies are in a movie called East Fifth Bliss together and it is rumored that Brie Larson will be sporting her Natty Paint in the movie. Get pumped!
The film was amazing and we got to talk to Josh Dibb, also known as Deakin, after the show and gave him and the rest of the band some Natty gear. We were able to get a picture with him and some of the shirts we gave him:
Step aside, Vicky Cristina. It’s looks like Barcelona’s latest love affair may very well be with Natty Paint, thanks in part to Barcelona-based band Delorean, a hypnotic and sunny electro synthpop group hailing allll the way up north from Zarutz, Spain.
They opened for Miike Snow at the 9:30 club last week. After the show we were able to snag up the lovely dudes and give them some customized Natty Paint tee shirts. Ellosencantaron. (That means theyloved, for all the gringos out there.) Loved the shirts so much, in fact, that they planned to wear them to their Philly concert the next day. Buenissimo!
Here’s some pics of the chicos donning Natty Paint:
We are definitely planning on collaborating with them in the future and customizing more of their band tees and posters! Keep watch!
