She Past Away Turkish postpunk duo She Past Away have been building momentum in the dark alternative music scene for over a decade. With a sound heavily anchored in the spirit of the 1980s and gothic rock, She Past Away has become a headliner with a following that rivals established musical peers like Drab Majesty, Lebanon Hanover, and Soft Kill. They are currently touring and have played long-awaited shows in the United States, a first for the band. We spoke with members Volkan Caner and Doruk Ă–ztĂźrkcan to discuss their latest release, Disko Anksiyete, and the journey that led She Past away to this moment. AUXILIARY winter 2019

Azam Ali

With her latest solo full-length release Phantoms, Azam Ali’s impressive catalogue of work now features a deeply personal exploration of her identity as an artist with influences nodding to her love of alternative music from the 80s and 90s as well as her roots in the Middle East, notably featuring a cover of the Cocteau Twins song “Shallow Then Halo”. Formerly a member of the world music group Vaz, Azam Ali is currently performing with Niyaz and a multidisciplinary performance art group called The Fourth Light Project. She has also contributed to television, video game, and film scores using her unique voice and approach to music. We spoke with Azam about her journey as an artist, the process of creating Phantoms and opening for Bauhaus on their reunion tour. AUXILIARY winter 2019

interview by Elizabeth Rhodes photographer Saryn Christina creative director Elizabeth Rhodes makeup artist Kayleigh Roberts hair stylist Jeanna Kier clothing Jane Doe Latex models Lauren WK, Nina Kate & Christina Wen

Jane Doe Latex London-born and Los Angeles based model and renowned latex designer Nina Kate founded Jane Doe Latex and has earned a reputation as a leader in the world of alternative fashion, dressing celebrities like Lady Gaga and Kat Von D along with countless artists and latex-lovers around the globe. Nina’s career as a model has involved numerous public appearances (most recently at Torture Garden in Los Angeles and the Dallas Fetish Ball) as well as collaborations with top photographers, makeup artists and creatives in the industry, resulting in a multitude of images showcasing her designs and proving she is a powerhouse creative with a love for all things dark.

How and when did Jane Doe Latex get started? Nina Kate : Jane doe began in London, back in 2005! I had been working for other latex companies for a few years and had reached a point where I knew I wanted to go it alone and follow my own vision.

NK : I started out as a latex-making apprentice at 18 years old and to be honest had no idea where I wanted to take it. After a few years it became apparent that it was what I wanted to do and that I was pretty okay at it! I started out small, just working on making my own patterns and getting the name out there, back then there really weren’t that many latex brands so a new one popping up was fairly unusual and getting noticed wasn’t too hard.

What led you to create this business and what was the initial vision for Jane Doe Latex? AUXILIARY winter 2019
