Zoe Miyori Fujii is definitely making a name for herself as a fashion and textile designer. After graduating from UC Davis and pursued a degree in Fashion and Textiles study, the LA based fashion designer opened her own store named after her on Etsy and started the business online. Her colorful and classic chic silhouette has been featured on many blogs and on Etsy's top page. We asked her some questions including where she gets inspirations for her design and what she is currently working on.
Passion Pit is a renowned feel-good favorite. You may be familiar with some of their popular songs, such as “Take a Walk,” or “Carried Away.” With Michael Angelakos as lead vocals and keyboards, and Jeff Apruzzese playing bass and synth bass, Passion Pit never fails to make you feel ecstatic, despite their darker underlying lyrics.
Passion Pit is definitely one of my all time favorites, and I’m happy to see that they’re finally releasing a new album! I saw them live at Club Nokia about 2 years ago, and a handful of shows later, that specific concert is still my all time favorite. They haven’t released a full record since Gossamer in 2012, so it’s exciting to see what they’re coming up with. Their upcoming album, Kindred, is set to release on April 21st through Columbia Records.
Watch/listen to their album teasers below:
We first featured her a year ago with her jewelry line "MYRRH jewelry"(interview here) a line made with very unique geometric shape. But Mor Elian has another side other that just being a jewelry designer. "Sorry, I just came back from the tour in Europe and I'm still unpacking everything..." she said while having her a hot cup of soup. For last a couple of months, she was traveling around Europe as DJ! (includes her home town Tel Aviv too!) We asked ten questions including tips on time management! To the one of the most demanded girls in LA, we thank you Mor for sharing you time with us!

Last Thursday, I got to see Daedelus perform at The Echoplex in Echo Park, courtesy of the man himself. After seeing him perform live again after our interview together, it’s just amazing to see how passionate he is about his music. You could just see the smile on his face when he drops a beat, and this really translates through his music and through the crowd. The crowd really vibed with him throughout the night; everywhere you turned, you could see everyone bobbing their heads to the beat, or dancing to the sweet sounds. His mesmerizing visuals also helped set the mood throughout the show. Other artists that performed that night included Boogie and Nosaj Thing! Overall, really great performances from all the artists.
In case you missed it, read up on my interview with Daedelus here! See a few clips from the show here:
