DESIGNER, WRITER, ENVIRONMENTALIST

Quality craftsmanship, environmentally sustainable materials created with ethical production practices is her approach, which has garnered numerous awards in her illustrious career.

JELITO DE LEON
PHOTOGRAPHER, TRAVELER, FOODIE ENVIRONMENTALIST
There has never been a delicate cup of coffee pleasantly sitting on a table that Jelito De Leon did not find interesting nor being able to turn it into a beautiful serene photograph. Jelito’s early passion was culinary arts, but he soon found himself immersed in the world of photography. The Manila-based photographer elaborates on his casual soft-color minimalist personal style and how his photography blends all of his passions together.
WRITER, GRAPHIC DESIGNER, SEX COLUMNIST
Youthful, energetic and talented, Nathan James Wilkins’s free-flowing form transcends not only his music but sartorial expression and lifestyle. The Austin-based musician feels a direct and reverent connection to nature that grounds his existence as well as inspiring his music. From taking stage at SXSW with his band Hikes to his side project Ponca with his girlfriend and solo career Monté, music is as much a necessity to Nathan as oxygen is to life.
GEORG AUF LIEDER
SINGER, SONGWRITER, GUITARIST
From a busker in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz to signing a record label with Universal, Georg Auf Lieder never had any doubt in his mind that music was his calling since the first time he picked up a guitar in Bolivia.
