Inspiration Design Culture. | The Streets Barber (Documentary)


Nasir Sobhani aka ‘The Streets Barber’, is a true Nomad, not just of the world, but also of the mind. Growing up in Japan, attending University in Canada, volunteering his time for Youth Work in the Vanuatu and then Australia to start up his own initiative helping the homeless, Nasir has certainly lived a fruitful life. It wasn’t all smooth sailing though, with a crippling drug addiction along the way, Nasir thanks his Baha’i faith and barbering for his new found sobriety. Working six days a week cutting hair, Nasir spends his one day off hitting the streets to give free haircuts to the homeless. He calls it, ‘Clean Cut Clean Start’.

thank you to all of the artists who trusted and supported us – not only with their talent, but with the courage to be a part of something new and unique. they all were open and willing to join us and step out of their comfort zones.
thank you for the wonderful installations, performances, sculptures, songs, paintings, new forms of art, and the blood, sweat, tears…and smiles.
we want to say thank you to all the people that helped make MADE a reality – you know who you are. you helped us develop a blueprint for how art, audience and brands can respect, support and co-exist in harmony with each other.
and so, our time of MADE is over now…but the spirit, experience and memories will surely stay with us as we move on.

Fashion Design Culture. | Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle (Lecture)

Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle started 16 companies before finally getting it right. In his entertaining talk, Johnny outlines the various hardships and small, clever things he incorporated into his brand that ultimately led to the success of the Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt brand.

Named America’s #1 Young Entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, and recognized 4 years in a row for making it into the Inc. 500 | 5000 fastest growing independent companies in America, Johnny Earle started his business by selling t-shirts out of the trunk of an ’89 Toyota Camry when he was 19. Since that time, the Johnny Cupcakes brand has grown out of his sedan, and into the multimillion dollar apparel company it is today.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

In 2011, Harlem’s A$AP Rocky emerged at the forefront of a resurgent New York rap underground. Connecting the dots between a wide spectrum of ‘90s rap and the fashion-savvy hip hop vanguard, Rocky quickly ascended to global stardom. In this public lecture at London’s majestic St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, as part of the 2015 RBMA UK Tour, the rapper gave a rare insight into his state of mind. Sitting down with journalist Hattie Collins on the Red Bull Studios London couch where he wrote much of At.Long.Last.A$AP, Lord Flacko seemed delighted to hold court. This extensive interview also features a special appearance by Yasiin Bey and the first play of album cut “M’$.” Find out more about A$AP Rocky’s upcoming public lecture in Harlem for Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York here:…


Design Lifestyle & Culture. | The Plastic Age “#Earthday” (#Documentary)

We all talk about the Stone Age, the Iron Age and the Bronze Age, but what era are we living in right now? People are starting to refer to us as the – far less romantic – Plastic Age. We make 288 million tonnes of plastic a year, and unlike paper, metal, glass or wood, it does not oxidise or biodegrade, instead it ends up in our oceans, making the ratio of plastic to plankton 100:1. The way to make use of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch? Bionic yarn. Co-designed by Pharrell, G-Star’s RAW for the Oceans collection is the world’s first denim line created from plastic that has been fished out of the big blue and recycled. Find out how we can pick 700,000 tonnes of plastic up off the sea floor in our documentary, made possible by G-Star, The Plastic Age.
