We’re super excited to start stocking the latest DISFUNKSHION mag on our online shop!! We chatted to Disfunkshion creator for a little peek inside the mag:
We’ve been having a love affair with the online side of Disfunkshion for a while now – something as passionate and real as this doesn’t happen by accident – who’s love child is it?
It’s my lovechild! hehe! I wanted to merge women’s issues, social issues, fashion, art, surf and bohemian culture into one platform and that’s how DISfunkshion was born.
One of the reasons we love the mag is it’s ‘manifesto’ among other things, is to offer tips on ways to get involved in the community and make a difference… what’s your top tip?
My biggest thing would be to encourage all women to leave this earth a bit more beautiful than they found it. There are too many people hurting out in the world, and it’s our human privilege to lend a hand to those in need. Whether it be the hungry, the abused, the marginalized or the sad souls hidden in the glitz and glamour.
There’s a real ‘boho’ undertone to the mag, where does this come from?
It comes from everything that inspires me. A part of me feels like I was born in the wrong era. I should have been a young adult in the 60′s and 70′s. haha! I also love the free-spirit element of the bohemian lifestyle that is liberating, dreamy, inspiring and spiritually nurturing.
What are you all obsessing on right now?
I tend to be pretty detached from most things but one of the things I catch myself most attracted to these days are turquoise jewelry pieces, flared stretchy pants, incense and good self-help books.
Describe your ultimate photo shoot.
My ultimate photo shoot is one where I have all kinds of Native American jewelry pieces (which is usually pretty pricey), face paint, ethnic prints from all over the world, and a compilation of essentials from the closets of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Steven Tyler and Lenny Kravitz.
What’s the intention behind Disfunkshion?
To exhort, empower and encourage women to love themselves and to truly appreciate the beauties that they truly are. In a beauty, weight and success obsessed culture, we are the counter media movement magazine. We don’t want to tell women how they SHOULD look or be, but enourage each woman to walk her own journey in a positive and beneficial light! We also like to talk about meaty topics related real life issues, thus creating a supportive community in which we can all connect, relate and share those things deemed taboo by modern culture.

Johnny forwarded me this shoot today and I had to blog it – pink hair, wooly mammoth furry coats and a big white Artex-don’t-let-the-swamps-of-sadness-get-to-you-horse… what’s not to love!!

Am sure it’s the same for a lot of you who have a little tribe, but shopping for the groms is sometimes as much (if not more) fun than shopping for yourself!! We adore local label Children of the Tribe by local designer (and mum) Emma McClean. It’s all animal print and crazy 70s disco-David-Bowie fabrics, printed tees and all the things you wish you’d dressed in when you were knee high.
I know that as a working mum I don’t get much (any!!) time to go shopping for Indi, so jumping online is the only chance I get… so lucky COTT has a website!! Shop it all here.
