{ Q AND A } My Name is Eden. I’m a surfboard shaper from the Gold Coast working under my label Dead Kooks. Dead Kooks is all about creating custom surfboards with a strong focus on functionality, form and a bit of 60’s and 70’s flair. I’m also a mad cyclist, my garage is full of boards and bikes. What’s your street style? I’m most comfortable in an old t-shirt and some well worn jeans or elastic waist shorts. Simple things and understated always wins. Favourite Brand? Stussy do some really good stuff, they have a really good eye for design while having some heritage to it too. Obey always have some pretty tidy shirts as well. Favourite Hangout? Black Coffee Lyrics up in Surfers [sic] is great. Good coffee, great food, nice selection of scotch, super warm and cosy vibe. It’s at great odds with the general perception of Surfers [sic] and a little hide away from the chaos. Love this song? The last Justin Townes Earle album Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way you Feel About Me Now had been on repeat for the last few months. That whole album is amazing. Tumblr or instagram? I use Tumblr for my blog deadkooks.com, I’m pretty hopeless with computers so the ease of use is perfect but Instagram is where it’s at for sure. But I don’t have internet and only just got a tv so I’m a little behind. Summer or winter? Summer for sure. Hard to beat living in boardies, warm water and hot summer days. The waves generally suck though. Autumn is probably my pick, April-May is always special.

{ Q AND A } My name is Sarah and I’m a uni student and intern curator. I organise a variety of events, exhibitions and artist workshops for the QUT Creative Industries Precinct. I really love Harry Potter and my little dog Ziggy, she is the greatest. What’s your street style? I tend to wear lots of black and layered jewellery but I love finding things with an unusual pattern or colour too. I’m usually dressed pretty casually and like to get my clothes from a bunch of different types of places, then throw them on together. Favourite Brand? Neuw. Favourite Hangout? Sourced Grocer in Teneriffe is so good for weekend breakfasts. I like that you can eat your breakky on the big windowsill or milk crates spilling out onto the street, it’s a nice way to spend the morning. Then on Friday nights you will find me at Black Bear Lodge. Best coffee in Brisbane? I’m more of a tea person and Dandelion & Driftwood have sooo many delicious teas. Their melon green tea is yum! And they serve each tea with a little card telling you all about it, which I think is a nice touch. Love this song? This Time Tomorrow by The Kinks Tumblr or instagram? Instagram Summer or winter? Winter! I love wearing jumpers and jackets and socks and rolling myself up in a doona.

{ Q AND A } My Name is Andy and I’m Brisbane-born. My parents are from Malaysia and Germany, I play synth in the Belligerents and work in design / facilitation. I also play soccer and I have a fetish for spicy noodle soup and sweet curries. I’m a nice guy with lots of ideas but a problem with concentrating on one thing at a time. What’s your street style? I dress pretty relaxed. I’m comfortable in some casual trousers and a tee. I have a few favourite leather jackets I’ve acquired over the years that emerge each winter. I rarely wear hats, but dig beanies. Favourite hangout? You’ll find me down at The End, a local favourite for good music and beers. There’s plenty of interesting peeps down in West End! Best coffee in Brisbane? I have always loved Brew Cafe in the City since I first popped my head down the laneway. Love this song? I’ve got to go with a classic here; Make Love by Daft Punk off the Human After All record. An understated chordal progression, with some funky bass. Ahhhh... Tumblr or Instagram? I’m a Tumblr fan. Instagram is INTENSE man. Summer or winter? I crave a lifestyle of year-round Summer. Because Summer around Brisbane spells adventurous outdoor endeavours...

{ Q AND A } My name is Katie and I’m a freelance Illustrator / Graphic Designer, faux-flower hobbyist, cupcake hoarder and selfconfessed cat lover. What’s your street style? If you open my wardrobe, your first impression would probably be that you’ve opened up Katherine Heigl’s cupboard from the set of 27 Dresses, although try adding about 90 more. I have a variety of cherished goodies ranging from tulle tutus, sequined tops, laced button-ups, vintage country dresses and flower headbands. My style would probably be best pinned as a toned-down version of a Harajuki Kawaii girl. Favourite brand? At the moment my love is Finders Keepers. Favourite hangout? When I’m with friends, it’s kicking back at Harajuku Gyoza, feasting upon dumplings and complimenting each other on our chopstick abilities. Other than that, I enjoy hanging out at the RSPCA with the animals. I recently scored an internship with them and got to do some puppy training along with befriending some affectionate felines and a handsome guinea pig named Alf. Best coffee in Brisbane? If you’re a sucker for chocolate like me, you definitely can’t go past the mochas served at Bunker in Milton. The place has a relaxed vibe, friendly staff and you can sip your cup of goodness surrounded by cool creeping vines. Love this song? Bon Iver – Michicant. Tumblr or Instagram? I’m a bit of both. When I’m not on one, I’m on the other updating my daily adventures, illustrations and designs (smallstepsheavyhooves.tumblr. com). Summer or winter? I’m definitely a summer girl. It’s all about the summer dresses: floral, blocks and crops.

{ Q AND A } My name is Chad. I‘m a B-Boy aka Break Dancer. I have been B-Boying for nine years now. I’m proud to do something that I love and can make a living off. I live a crazy lifestyle of teaching, training and performing which allows me to travel all over and meet tonnes of amazing people. I’m easy-going and love being social. What’s your street style? Most of the time I’m wearing something that I can break dance in; a stretchy pair of jeans, a casual shirt and, most importantly, a pair of shoes so I don’t break my toes. I have plenty of jackets and sweats always by my side. Favourite hangout? I’m definitely a Valley person. There is a great studio that I’m always at with other breakers, and after that it’s to the bars around the Valley. There is plenty of variety there so I’m always trying to find something new. If not there I’m somewhere miles away at the beach hanging out with mates. Best coffee in Brisbane? Foxy Bean is the best coffee place. It’s in Woolloongabba just on the side of the road. The vibe there always puts you in a good mood for the day ahead, and they make a great quad shot! Love this song? My favourite song is Finally Moving Remix by Pretty Lights... Banging tune. Tumblr or Instagram? Tumblr all the way. I find it more interesting and it has a variety of topics to follow. When I have a free moment I’m normally on Tumblr and I find it hard to get off it. Summer or winter? I’m a winter boy for sure, I love rugging up in a jacket or coat, it also leaves more to the imagination.

Della Brand Manager for MINKPINK I was born and bred in Sunny QUEENSLAND but went walkabout post uni days.


MINKPINK Slinky Skinny Tank $24.95, MINKPINK Cloverfield Pleated Skirt $59.95.


{ Q AND A } My name is Della and I’m the Brand Manager for MINKPINK. I was born and bred in Sunny Queensland but went walkabout post uni days, living/working/shopping/drinking and just generally having a damn good time in London, Dublin and Vancouver. After seven years of rain, thought it was time to head back down south to the sunny motherland and bagged myself a job in Sydney as the MINKPINK Brand Manager. What’s your street style? I don’t have a wardrobe... I have a floordrobe! As much as I would love to pretend I rock a ‘Cher from Clueless’ wardrobe... I am as messy as they come! Working long days and out and about most nights doesn’t allow for much ‘re-hanging, folding or ironing’ time in my busy schedule... So... in my floordrobe I mainly have quick and easy and, most importantly, COMFY things to chuck on. Bright cheeky shorts + baggy tee and Vans for day.... Easy little dress and platforms accessorised with a glass of bubbles for night. Favourite brand? Jameson’s..... oh and MINKPINK. Favourite hangout? Monday - $10 steak at the Trinno. Tuesday – $3 tacos at the Norfolk. Wednesday – Don Don on Oxford Street. Thursday – 12-fiddy shnitty at the Trinity. Friday – the Standard... to get my ping pong on. Saturday – Beach with the crew. Sunday – The Clock Balcony. Best coffee in Sydney? Rueben and Carl make the BEST coffee at Sample. Love this song? Breakthrough by Fat Freddy’s Drop. Tumblr or Instagram? Instagram. Summer or winter? Summer - longer days, and brighter nights.
