New Shoot! Pia Mia for NYLON

Feel especially proud of this shoot which I created for NYLON.
I've been a little bit obsessed with PIA MIA for a hot second, mostly because it's still amazing to me that you can become a famous singer on the basis of instagram alone, but also because she's beautiful and talented. I brought the artist and photographer Signe Pierce on board to capture her spirit, because Signe's work explores the concept of being a young, sexualised woman on the internet and everyday. And also, because she takes gorgeous, saturated images.

New Work! NYLON Magazine - Just The Tips

WOW! So much has been going on!

Working at NYLON I've had the opportunity to produce some amazing content. There is one particular project I LOVED working on especially. It's called "Just The Tips" and is a video series where we pulled together an array of women to talk about all the things that we chat about when there's no menses around. ;) It's so important that women have digital safe spaces to talk and connect.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we loved creating it!!!

See the whole series here.

Let's Catch Up!

by Beto Ruiz Alonzo

Hi Cuties!!

So much to catch up on! Yes, I am still living large in NYC!! :D

Some things have changed over the past year- I've been working at NYLON Magazine for about ten months now- coordinating and producing the original photo shoots and videos for the NYLON Digital site, which has been so amaazing and rewarding! Also moving into production of their integrated sponsored content which is a really exciting and exploding element of digital landscape. I'd like to share more of my work on here; but I honestly just keep forgetting!

I'm still producing the CHROMAT runway shows at MILK each season; (see the New York Times coverage of our most recent show)


However- I wanted to share with you this amazing find! Digging through the archives at NYLON I stumbled upon this custom hand made Betsey Johnson piece made exclusively for the brand; but long forgotten! I had to get it on me :) :)

Recent Press / Huffington Post, Refinery29, The Coven

Hello my long lost lovers!! 

Just sharing some press that has come my way recently. I'm #thankful!






To be featured on the Huffington Post is really incredible, big thanks to James Nichols for the feature. It's pretty in-depth and angled primarily towards my work in nightlife, so I feel lucky to have the chance to bend your ears!




My girls at Witches of Bushwick included this feature in their newest issue of The Coven Mag. 
I have a lot to say! I hope you get to read it.

AAAANNNNDDD!!

Okay this isn't technically press but regardless, I THINK YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT MY DRESS!!! OMG OMG OMG!
It's made entirely out of vintage basketball jerseys and old, old fringing we found at a fabric store that was going out of business. Yeah I conceptualised it, but as always, my costumier Vaughan Alexander put it all together for me. GET IIITTTT

Ms. Fitz and Witches of Bushwick Present: Second Annual Bushwick Gone Basel



Bushwick is a neighborhood filled with many talented artists who are consistently on the cusp of new trends, ideas and bold creative happenings -- in a lot of ways, the cultural zeitgeist. It's important that the commercial art world understands that we have a voice.

Born out of warehouses, DIY clubs and artistic collectives, this neighborhood's artists embody a raw and untethered creative spirit that is incredibly important in terms of the larger conversation regarding art and culture. Massive art fairs like Basel are commercialized and can be difficult for independent artists to showcase their work. 


So, in 2013 I came up with the idea for Bushwick Gone Basel, a showcase of burgeoning artists from our neighbourhood, Bushwick, at Miami Basel. By providing the platform at "Bushwick Gone Basel" we hoped to expose the beating heart of the underground to a larger audience. For two years running "Bushwick Gone Basel" has crashed Miami, bringing our own brand of unique DIY art party to the mainstream.

Read about the artists involved with Bushwick Gone Basel on this feature on the Huffington Post:
"Bushwick Gone Basel to Close Maimi Basel, 2014"

Here are some pics from the night ;) They may have tried to shut it down but true to form; we kept it going. Thank you to everyone involved!!

"ICONS" by Ms. Fitz - Superchief Gallery, New York

I  was recently asked to curate a showing at Superchief Gallery during NYFW, so I took the opportunity to bring together my friends Whatever21, Pictureplane and Molly Soda to exhibit "Limited Edition" works inspired by branding and fashion in the modern era.

I created the following pieces, titled "ICONS". As you can see, I created replicas of iconic looks worn by famous women on the red carpet. The reason I chose these outfits is because they are culturally so important, they caused such a stir at the time, they were incredibly risqué. Covering my entire body in gold leafing symbolises the trophy, the idol.

a) Celine Dion's backwards Galliano suit- she wore for the Grammys when she won for "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic
b) J-Lo's green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammy's
c) Liz Hurley's versace Safety Pin dress she wore to the premier of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" in 1994

Thanks to everyone that came out for the launch :)

Enjoy

THE SERPENT


Australian Aboriginal people believe that in the Dreamtime, a giant rainbow serpent created the universe. When you see a rainbow, it is the serpent jumping from waterhole (or billabong) to waterhole.

Embrace her power.
