BLK#19: BTS Damien Nikora shoots five of our favourites

 Jessica Grubisa and Thistle Brown are two of the most colourful friends we have and we felt the time has come to pass the Black baton, as it were. So, on Sunday, we shot with Damien Nikora, Jessica and Thistle, tentatively known as Jessile GruBrown as fashion editors. Creative direction by Rachael Churchward, hair by Greg Murrell and Fraser Folagi at Ryder Salon and the generally (in NZ fashion) unknown but incredible Sharlene Cassidy (using M.A.C Cosmetics) to capture 12 pages for BLK #19. Shooting Lili Sumner and Andrey at Red 11, Mary at RPD, Ben at Newfacenoagent and Thistle himself, Sunday was a lot of fun! We've purposely kept it B&W here so that you really do enjoy the colour in the mag itself - and the digital version...thanks to SSION and the great disco artists of the early 80s like Bohannon and Jimmy Bo Horne for the tunes...BLK #19 on sale mid April!
