Welcome to

T h e L o v e I s s u e , Fall 2011

CHAOS Magazine brings you our 12th installment, and we are bringing the love. As you flip through this issue you will notice that it’s not just a preview of the issue, but the full issue. For now we have decided to share the full issue of CHAOS with everyone who wishes to view it. You will not need to order the PDF; the issue will not be available for purchase. However, you can come back and view the issue anytime you’d like until the next issue releases. As always, the magazine is filled with great editorials. These editorials represent love in many different ways. Love in a romantic sense, love in a friendly sense, love for materialistic things, love shown in a sexual way, love for the land, and love when you can’t decide whom to love. With every issue of CHAOS we have the CHAOS Model Watch, lensed by Gavin Thomas, and this issue brings a big model watch. Be sure you don’t miss that! Among all the captivating editorials you’ll find intriguing articles that will give you a good read as you browse the magazine. This issue has articles on fashion designers you haven’t heard of, bands you’ll want to add to your iTunes, and a particular painter in our Art Division named Cholla, who will blow your mind and having you asking, “How is that possible?” Well, just remember, if there is love, anything is possible. Enjoy the issue, and thank you for viewing.

Much Love!

Reese Herrick

ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND FASHION UK BASED FASHION DESIGNER AYOLE ADEDE TAKES THE WORLD BY STORM, ONE ELEGANT WOMAN AT A TIME. TEXT NARDOS MESMER PHOTOGRAPHY BERNA V PHOTOGRAPHY, LINDA COOPER

IN THE WORLD OF FASHION, EVERY ONE IS LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION. Everyone is looking for that next key element to put him or her above the rest. Everyone is searching for a signature style that will make him or her stand out. Everyone is hoping for the great idea that defines him or her as a designer. Ayole Adede from the Eyola Fashion House can check all of these things off of her proverbial checklist. Adede, the former fashion intern turned creative director, launched her up and coming European fashion house in 2008. The Eyola Fashion House has now become one of the world’s most watched labels thanks to its ultra-refined silhouettes, sharp structures, vibrant colors and distinctive Victorian-influenced statement pieces. The young fashionista has had a world of creativity to grow up and become inspired by. Hailing from the African country Nigeria, the young woman was raised in the UK and attended school in Italy, which allowed her to gain a wealth of culture. She now has a global perspective that she can add to her style. “I traveled a lot and was very lucky to visit different cities and cultures,” Adede says. “Each city has its own pulse,

and fashion in each city differed tremendously then. I was fortunate to have access to a world of luxury fashion, but by no means was the fashion conventional.” The fashion Adede experienced during childhood is different from what she creates today. Before globalization, before social media, before our backyard included oversees countries, the world of fashion was worlds apart. The distance didn’t stop Adede from experiencing what other cultures kept in their closets. “I was encouraged and given the freedom to dress uniquely, at times crazy, and experiment,” she says. “I saw fashion as a way to be heard. Being stuck most of the time in a school uniform, fashion was even more important to me because there were only a few days I could really express myself and be myself, and fashion helped me do that.” Another huge part of her childhood was using her own imagination as inspiration. Adede says she lived in her own special world growing up as a child. She gained inspiration from every creative art form she could try from acting to dancing to piano and singing. 25 chaos
