We're taking time to talk with Maddy Hodgetts, a Ngiyampaa and Wiradjuri artist who is busy making monumental things happen in the fashion industry. Where do we even start? Maddy runs her painting practice under the name Kapata Dreaming - @kapatadreaming - and then she also runs Yapa Mali - @yapamali - a clothing and accessory business based in Nyngan, NSW. Her design for Kinga Csilla - the Kali fabric pattern - speaks of Country, connection and waterways, and is expressed in the lushest, freshest blues and greens. What a delight. Tell us a bit about your own emerging label,...
Aren’t we lucky? We might be more than a bit lucky. Jac Giltrow is the photography extraordinaire featuring on the Kinga blog this week. She tells us about traveling through Covid, life in Bali, and a little bit of inside goss from her latest shoots.
We at Kinga HQ have questions for Emily Jean. Nobody gets past us with an outward, infectious love of crochet swimsuits and roomy shacka hair styling - well, not without getting a few questions about style, art and leisure. We also heard rumours that Emily has recently started a homestead in the Australian countryside and we want to know all about it, of course.
Maddy Jovicic's paintings are about the joys of simple eating and drinking as the Romans do.
Think of pinks, sunshine yellows and warm deep primaries that speak of gelati, vino and antipasti crisscrossed with oil and lemon juice.
We're taking time to talk about rituals, art and treating yourself like a goddess.
