This was one of those amazingly exciting yet so thrown together kinda photo shoots!
After a little magazine article we were featured in I had a lovely young woman contact me in regards to doing a collaborative photo shoot together, she said im a film photographer and i would love to work on styling a shoot together.
Of course I jumped straight onto to after seeing some of her images on her instagram page @the_dingo_chronicles
Maddie's humble approach to photography and her eye for art is something of an old soul, its deep yet playful at the same time and Oh what pleasure it was to have the opportunity to work on this shoot together!
Kim Meurs (Model) was a friend of Maddie's and opted to jump on board like the day before the shoot, she was incredible, so don to earth and such a natural and she couldnt wait to cozy up to this huge camel (Fatima the wonderful). @kim_meurs

Kultcha Collective's Byron Bay designer Kaidee Peel talks about the personal journey that created this exciting new 'Firebird' collection.
The Fire bird meaning the Pheonix a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated and reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. A mythological creature associated with re-creation and rising once again.
This collection inspiration came about organically after a long haul and a year that brought many good and hard challenges in my personal life, where a small break away from Kultcha just had to happen! Now we are back!
With my love of bringing findings and inspiration from the past and and recreating them into modern wares of today, This "Firebird" collection was born. You will find vintage trims and fabric prints inserted into pockets, lots of details and embellishments onto fitted jackets that demonstrate strength and wisdom, the collection poses a hint of retro twisted into modern bohemian attire.
Enjoy the read below to find out the trails and tribulations on creating one of the most ethically conscious collections I have so far! Proud to claim the label "Made in Australia"

The years events started like this. From moving house suddenly with my whole family just before we were due to give birth with our second child, we were so settled and i was in full swing nesting mode and where the home birth was to take place, when everything was suddenly uprooted, we packed for days and moved within a week to begin our new journey setting up the house and the studio for Kultcha.
My husband (Bulan) then had a sudden accident and fell a huge 3 metres and was rushed to hospital with fractured vertabrae two weeks before bubs due date, thankfully we knew by day three he as able to walk. Bulan had to spend a week in hospital lying flat in bed and wondering whether he will ever skydive again, Bulans profession is a skydive instructor.
I was determined to get back into nesting and setting up the new home and studio before the arrival of Bub, while getting in to visit Bulan two times a day, not that we got to communicate much after all the morphine but I just needed to be by his side and so did Inca Mitzi our three year old daughter who was two and a half at the time. There was not much time to direct business needs, just thankfull for the amazing small number of staff we have to help keep the business rolling.
My beloved cat Michska the Gypsy cat who has travelled far and wide with me for 14 years had a terrible accident and nearly had to have her leg amputated after dislocating her hip in a tree or fence, she spent a week at the vet hospital recovering and fighting the infection and pain. But after lots of love and nurturing, a huge vet bill both Michska and Bulan came very well and returned home.
Two weeks later when the magical time came, our baby boy Ari Uki arrived on his due date with in 2 hours. Bulan was able to take off the back brace for that time to gently come into the birth pool and be the first to catch and hold our boy with the help of a lovely friend Susie who is a registered midwife from Germany, we had only met Sus two months before, yet I had a great connection since the moment we met.
After some months we found our feet again, with my husband being at home and in the studio with more time to focus on Kultcha together and with our new growing family and have this exciting new range to share with the world.
A story of the firebird phoenix from Russian folklore;
During an expedition, Prince Ivan, the Tsarevich, wanders into an enchanted garden. There, he spies a beautiful bird with dazzling plumage that is trying to pluck golden fruit from a silver tree. Ivan captures the bird but yeilds to its entreaties to be set free. In gratitude, the Firebird gives Ivan a magic feather.
As the sun rises, thirteen enchanted princesses come from the castle to dance and play with golden apples. Ivan discloses himself and is told the castle is the property of the evil magician Kastchei, who turns captive travelers into stone. Ivan, now in love with one of the princesses, vows to enter the castle. As he opens the gates, Kastchei and his crew of grotesques march onto the scene. Kastchei tries to bewitch Ivan, but the Prince is protected by the Firebird's feather.
The Firebird then appears and casts a spell by dancing wildly among the demons of Kastchei. The bird then reveals to Ivan an egg which contains Kastchei's soul. Ivan smashes the egg, and Kastchei dies. With his death, the princesses are liberated, and the story ends happily.
DIY indoor Tee pee for children or pets March 29 2015, 0 Comments
Here is a relatively simple DIY Teepee we made. Kids love cubby houses and my cat also loves to hide and sleep in random places in our house. So not only is it such a fun project to do with your children but it brightens up a useless corner in the house, prevents the little munchkins pulling out every sheet and towel in the cupboard to make cubby houses, it also looks great, and fun for everyone.

Entfesselt Vogue Germany Editorial
I just had to share the love I have for this Editorial for Vogue Germany. Nomadic gypsy woman, she is bold, strong, independent. I love the use of texture and colour yet so natural and just so stunning.
As the winter is slowly coming up and sampling time is in full swing I'm getting so excited and enthusiastic and excited what can be done with layering. This editorial for Vogue Germany is everything Kultcha Collective is inspired by!

Behind the scenes, Never seen before! Raw images from our Spring campaign 2014 February 04 2015, 0 Comments
What a fun day of shooting to reminisce, we caught some cheeky BTS shots with my camera I thought I would share just to capture the essence of the fun we had! Here you can see the ever so talented team behind the campaign shot at Harvest cafe Newrybar, we hung out in the vege garden where the cafe picks the herbs and produce daily for the menu, the bakery where the small of freshly baked bread filled the room, we found beautiful carved wooden doors, rustic chandeliers and bay windows that opened up to the garden.
Raw buckwheat granola recipe January 28 2015, 0 Comments
I just love this with a cup of tea morning tea time, or as a breakfast cereal alternative broken into pieces with your choice of milk and fresh fruit, or just a simple snack to keep us going in the Kultcha studio. This recipe is very much inspired by Lee Hakim a raw vegan chef from Livelee foods, whom I attended one of her ever inspiring workshops of raw vegan food check out her Facebook page Livelee foods.
2 1/2 cups raw activated buckwheat groats
1/12 cups of dates soaked for 15mins
3/4 cup currants or raisins
1/2 cup coconut hredded
1/4 cup sun flour seeds soaked for 4 hours
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds soaked for 4 hours
1/4 cup flax seeds soaked for 8-12 hours in 1/2 cup water (do not drain or rinse)
I have added organic blueberries, cranberries and bananas from our backyard garden. previously i have used fresh cherries when they were right in season Yum!
Blend up the dates with the water
put all ingredients into a large bowl, mix well by hand.
spread onto the dehydrator lined with baking paper
Dehydrate for 8 hours, then remove the baking paper
Dehydrate for further 12 hours or until the desired texture/crunch.
