Portraits by Katrina Olson for Binzento

Inspiration: Using the photography by Kristin Whiteley, photos were mapped in the blend of vibrant colours and bold designs. Combinations of Binzento's current fashion likes and Katrina Olson's skills as a mixed media artist were taken to create visually captive portraits that describe each of their character. The element of "films" was meant to be incorporated in these portraits to describe Katrina's extended knowledge as an artist to film making.

Joshua David McKenney for Binzento

Title: Illustrator
Location: New York, U.S.A
on left: Joshua David McKenney

About Joshua David McKenney: "J. David McKenney is all about glamour. Once upon a time in the early 1990’s, in a sleepy Pennsylvania suburb, a fateful encounter with an issue of Harper’s Bazaar left a teenage McKenney mesmerized by elegant images of couture fantasy. Inspired, McKenney’s burgeoning talent for illustration turned to high concept gilding of the feminine form. Following dreams of life in the Big City, McKenney hightailed it to Manhattan, where he attended the New School’s acclaimed Parson’s School for Design. 

Soon McKenney’s outstanding eye for beauty and knack for girly pop iconography landed him a coveted commission designing T-shirt graphics and fabric prints for superstar design team Heatherette. Press attention led to further commercial and fashion illustration commissions, including three marketing campaigns for Mariah Carey’s Elizabeth Arden fragrances. Ms. Carey even commissioned McKenney to create her personal holiday and birthday cards. Additionally, McKenney has worked with Harper Collins, Penguin Group, Saatchi Group, Scholastic Books, Elle Girl, Seventeen Magazine, Girl’s Life, Innovative Kids, Mattel, MAC cosmetics, and Nylon Magazine." -J. David McKenney
Inspiration: Binzento's idea of crossing over ninja x vampire x manga style (things he love); Snap shot by correspondent KO. Joshua David McKenney's interpretation of Binzento using his style of illustration. I heart it. To me, it's PERFECTO!

Andrew Yang (Kouklita) for Binzento

Title: Doll Fashionista/ Designer/ Creator of the Kouklita
Location: New York, Paris/ U.S.A, France
Andrew Yang & his Kouklitas

About Andrew Yang: "The Kouklitas are a line of 27” fashion rag dolls conceived by New York City based artist and illustrator Andrew Yang. The name originates from the Greek word for doll, koukla. Each doll is cut from a pattern, sewn into muslin, and meticulously stuffed and attached by hand. The faces are all hand painted, and the dresses are created using luxurious fabrics and couture sewing methods. 
Andrew spent his childhood in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he grew up around his mother’s collection of Madame Alexander dolls and eventually acquired his own collection of high-end fashion dolls. His hobby was put on hold when he moved to New York to pursue fashion, an industry he worked in as an assistant designer for several years. Longing for another creative outlet, Andrew created his first doll from scraps of muslin in the summer of 2008. 
The Kouklitas are currently available in Barneys New York stores across America, Barneys.comShowstudio.com, and Joyce Boutique Hong Kong. His work as been featured in VOGUE MAGAZINE, The New York Times, Doll Reader, DOLLS Magazine, and international publications of Elle, Marie Claire, and Harpers Bazaar." -The Kouklitas 
Finished Martin Margiela Kouklita for Binzento

Inspiration: Binzento's love of innovative fashion designer Martin Margiela and his S/S 09 collection which consisted the famous "wig coat" piece. Andrew Yang's experience in fashion design allowed him to make this Kouklita doll size replica. Truly inspiring and in love of Andrew Yang's talent. Kouklitas are currently being exhibited in Paris, France.
