Featured Minds of Issue 1
Written + Photographed By majestic disorder staff
The foundation of majestic disorder has been the inspirational and intimate stories of the globally fascinating, culturally conscious Featured Minds. Our arts + culture publication has since expanded into a physical manifestation with the launch of our quarterly print magazine.
Inside issue 1 we have explored and documented several intriguing designers, artists, entrepreneurs and writers. Below is a collection of the latest Featured Minds and a brief digest. Their stories and photographs are exclusive to our magazine, which is available in select retailers worldwide and through our website.
MODEL, EDITOR, ENTREPRENEUR
A city girl with a gypsy soul and rolling stone attitude, Claire tackles the world from all angles. From modeling to humanitarian efforts to advocating for more transparency within the fashion industry, she is a woman who selects her clothing in the same manner as her thoughts. She believes all things matter. Nothing is dispensable. Finding inspiration in everything from poets such as Pablo Neruda to underground club nights in Brooklyn Claire’s creative visions have no limits.
CO-OWNER OF AKA, TATTOO + PERFORMANCE ARTIST
As a man whose work is deeply rooted in his spiritual upbringing, travels and overall worldly fascination, Jon continues to challenge the cultural messages that have been indoctrinated into us. Performance artist and artistic entrepreneur, Jon started Aka, a Berlin and London based artist run collaborative space, at just 25 years old in hopes of bringing together artists across all mediums and creating a place where ideas could grow. Jon is an eclectic man brewing with imagination and originality.
NICOLE JO MELTON
JEWELRY DESIGNER, GRAPHIC ARTIST
Stepping into Nicole’s world is like deep-sea diving into an ancient treasure trove reclaimed from the bottom of the ocean. A true creative visionary and avid vintage collector, Nicole extraordinarily weaves together Native American motifs, memories and vivid cultural references into each piece within her jewelry line Knot & Splice. From her individual sartorial style to her hand-crafted work, jewelry is part of her personal alchemy serving as both a second skin and memory keeper.
A woman so organically inspiring, Whitney at her core is a social pulse that beats passionately for life and awareness. From her time spent with The New York Times, counter-culture DIY publication AFROPUNK and her efforts working with the non-profit organization Three Female Ballers, which provides teenage female student athletes the opportunity to travel to African countries to engage in leadership training, Whitney is a manifestation of hopefulness and creativity. A true mover and shaker, Whitney’s personality inspires us to see the importance of individuality and human perspective.
