Dirty pillows

Today my good friends & creative geniuses/fashion Gods, Andy & Christian release the second season of their RADICAL FASHIONISM’ podcast. Andy tells us about the making of season 2 & this awesome analogue photo series by Kath Ebbs.

“So when it came time for season 2 Christian & I realised we had to evolve pretty quickly.

For season 1 we had done something really fresh, we had kind of flipped the script on what a strictly audio product could feel like. So we knew we couldn’t repeat it dot for dot.

Audio-wise what he had achieved in season 1 was to us, perfection. So we started to really knuckle down into how this looks. What the visuals felt like. We had all these ideas across season 1 on fonts, feelings, colours, etc, but were mostly just focused on making content that helped people feel good so they never really got explored.

Season 2 had us engage an old mate Kath Ebbs, Kath is a social media phenomenon. She has all the marketability of a Jenna with the soul of a saint & at the age of like 21 or some shit, is one of our biggest mentors. I learn so much from Kath so when she was like “I wanna shoot some shit for you” we were so excited.

This series of photos came out of it. It was shot in my old house during the move out process & we wanted just a really free series of images, all based around the joy of getting ready together. Which all in all is what this podcast is about. It’s about us getting ready with our listeners. Getting ready to go to the party, getting ready to smash the day, getting ready to heal together.

We are so happy with them & with season 2. We are releasing the content in a different way this time too. It’s less about this is the package & more of an ongoing conversation a new episode every 3 weeks & then lots of visual spots/social media communication & other media avenues in between. We also get a little more real with you all. There is a vulnerability in this season which is new for me personally to share with people.

Christian & my relationship has evolved too. I say to him all the time “we aren’t friends anymore” & we’re not. We have morphed into this new wave family unit where nothing either of us could do would ever compromise our relationship. It is the singularly most important relationship I have ever had & documenting it & sharing it with everyone is super special for me.

The podcast has galvanised a lot of our other friendships too, from people who have been on the podcast to our old friends who have loved it. I have met so many killer people through this process, Alex our producer, Ainsley here at Sticks has become like our creative mum, Mitch Z my new boyfriend who makes the fonts for us & the drop boxes & all that shit, Lauren who just keeps us sane. Honestly, it has been such a growing experience for me I’m so grateful I can’t even express it.

I really hope you enjoy this little egg we have laid! If you haven’t listened give it a go & please tell me what you think!”
