"i feel ya" by André 3000 Benjamin, SCAD & Çalik Denim

Last week there was an amazing event at Art Basel in Miami that I unfortunately couldn’t attend but still didn’t want to miss the chance to tell you about – the “i feel ya” exhibit co-produced by André 3000 Benjamin and Savannah College of Art & Design and sponsored by the always creative and innovative Calik Denim. Here you could watch the Art as a whole split into 3 different channels – fashion, film and painting – and they all ended in cohesive unity. Custom jumpsuits, designed by performer, artist and actor André 3000 Benjamin for a worldwide tour celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Outkast were exhibited alongside an experimental film directed by Greg Brunkalla (a SCAD alum) and large-scale abstract paintings by Jimmy O’Neil. All pieces, very dynamic and impressive on their own, when brought together intensified the experience of this grandiose exhibit.

There couldn’t be a better patron than Calik Denim for an event like “i feel ya” – being one of the leading innovators in the Denim Industry they really understand and appreciate extraordinary, out-of-the-box ways of thinking. They truly believe in creativity and unconventional vision and always support making something unexpected, exciting and even functional; just like André’s comfortable and of course witty jumpsuits (so perfect for “shaking it like a Polaroid pikcha”! :-)).

I am the EU contributor and product reviewer for Denimology. From the time I was 5 years old browsing through my first fashion magazine I knew I wanted to be in this industry. While working as a Merchandiser at Gloria Jeans, the largest denim manufacturer and retailer in Russia, I discovered my passion for denim. It fascinated me then and years later it fascinates me even more. Every day I learn and discover something new and exciting about denim and am thrilled to do it hand in hand with all of you!
