Serbian-born and LA-grown Masha is a mover of underground sound. From producing some of the city’s most recognized electronic music events with MFG Productions to music curating, Masha has stepped into her own and is bringing her touch to the turntables. An electronic digger of disco and house music, Masha recently created a mix for Natology called Never Grow Old.
Never Grow Old captures the carefree feeling of a hot summer night. The mix spans through time journeying from disco to house. It begins with Goody Goody’s 1978 It Looks Like Love, and ends with Tom Trago’s contemporary sampling of the classic tune. In between, the disco ball’s glow fades behind the bright lights of the laser beams. The pace intensifies, the volume increases and the plot thickens. We find ourselves in a 90s soulful house paradise.

Alongside Willhelm's Fall/Winter 2015–16 collection are sculptural works, video, photography, and the collective energy of a site-specific project where friends like Malcom Stewart lend a helping hand in adding extra spray paint and fun.

SECRET MYSTERY BOX RAFFLE

WIFE is an all-sensory theatrical experience born of Los Angeles-based artists Jasmine Albuquerque, Kristen Leahy and Nina McNeely.
Her creations combine surrealist animations through digital projection mapping, sculpture, music and costumes, using movement and dance as the vehicle for storytelling.
In "The Passengers," a hybrid poem-performance set in an altered, semi-futuristic landscape, WIFE explores the cycle of life and death, and the mystical unions that are found beyond the body.
We are not the vessel. We are the passengers.
Director: Benjy Russelll
Featuring: WIFE (Jasmine Albuquerque, Kristen Leahy, Nina McNeely)
Natology recently added Kiss Curator to the repertoire with a special collaboration featuring America's Next Top Model's Marvin Cortes. Fashion photographer and friend Josef Jasso asked me to adorn Marvin's face with my red lips for an Adon Magazine editorial we shot in LA earlier this week. Here are some behind the scenes pics of Marvin's curated kisses <3
Fun fact, Marvin is a boy-next-door from the Bronx who was recruited for ANTM while studying to be a mathematician and working at Zara. He likes his ladies with brains and has a personality as humble and sweet as his smile. I'm delighted by his success and excited for his future. Big thanks to Marv for the canvas and Josef for making it happen.
