INTERVIEW: Satya Twena, Architectural Milliner

Edited by

Satya Twena didn’t fall into design by mistake. Raised in an eclectic family of artists, the appetite to create was in her blood from the very beginning. After years working in the interior design business, Satya decided to test the waters of the fashion industry after realizing her great love for millinery. Lucky for us, her architecturally-inspired hats designed with experimental materials are truly wearable art. I got the chance to sit down with Satya and chat about her family history, vertical inspiration and the rise of the fascinator.

OUT! with Aaron K: The Horror

Faris came up to me at the Tribeca Grand Hotel the other night and was so sweet. I asked him his name because when I get confused or star struck, I get quiet and start lying. I mean, I know who Faris Badwan is. He looked so much like Aris (The.Beautiful.Kids.), I was surprised.

Alex English (GBH) sort of pushed me at Faris, I got scared and asked if he needed a drink. He had two though, so I left to look for a hiding place. It’s hard being a fan.

Later Joshua Grimm and Coffin Joe appeared. They were even better looking than in pictures, but they don’t use their stage names. I think that’s a little disappointing.

I got around to their table after a while and sat down next to Joe, I might have swooned a little. He asked me if I wanted a pick-me-up and put a glass of gin in my hand.  Joshua laughed a lot, but I don’t know what about. Elle and Michael joined later.  Forgot how much I love them. Joshua said Elle and I have the same mouth, and laughed more.

Joe really was the best, Joe and Pinky. Michelle too! I guess I love everyone. Oh, and I nearly forgot Kendra, my favorite door girl. She wore an amazing ruby sequined jacket, the shoulder pads were on the outside and chains and safety pins were strung everywhere. I don’t know how she does it, but no one dresses better.

Some people left for the Jane, but James and Lola kidnapped me. We went over to Home Sweet Home with Nadia.  It was a snooze, but lots of people I love were there. James gave me cab fare home and I slept like a baby.

This past week has been all about black-on-black minimalism. No tulle bows or turbans, no shrugs of human hair, no jeweled brooches but lots of rings. Rings and Chelsea boots and studded jeans, and this cropped double-breasted jacket with rounded shoulder pads. Shoulder pads are back.

Did I mention this little harness Alex Chapman made? I’ve been wearing it everywhere. I love soft Goth with light S&M flourishes, it makes me feel very Factory.

Picture 12You may remember us raving about how much we love Aaron K on our ‘Top 25 Under 25 Stylish People To Know’ list, and read how much love he got from everyone in the comments. Well, now we wanted to tell you that Fashion Indie (and all the world) loves Aaron K SO much that we’ve asked him to write his own column!

Aaron promotes parties all over the city, COOL JERK at Sin Sin, The Box, Ruff Club, and Tribeca Grand, and is always dressed to kill.  Corey and I met Aaron through our favorite party spot, Ruff Club at the Annex, and we’ve become good friends.  We knew that Aaron would have the best stories, as he goes to and throws the best parties, so we’re super excited to hear what he’s up to now on Fashion Indie.  Look for Aaron’s column, ‘OUT With Aaron K’, following the life of the most interesting (and fashionable) Club Kid around.
