Voodoo Market No. 9, Berlin Urban Spree

Last weekend we spent the day in my little stall at voodoo market @ Urban spree. It was a good day full of handmade cheer! 

My stall fickle sense 

I bought two little illustration prints from the artist ryslee!

I was really impressed with mockingbird's upcycled collection. It was by far the best upcycled clothing that I have seen! Really inspiring stuff.

 mimikri's jewellery was made from upcycled materials! I love her use of colour blocking.

Some interesting textures with the Handcraft berlin's t-shirts and singlets.

 joy's feathery designs were full of colour and she had some unique feathers

Andrea Wan worked away at her illustrations as the voodoo market goers checked out her work.

Some nice screen printed designs from the happarel guys

MUSIC: GIRL POWER! with peaches

PEACHES! The last time I saw Peaches, she was rocking her heart out with her band at the Big Day Out festival in Perth, 2007. This time around we attended a more intimate event, where she was interviewed by the CDR Berlin guys.

I have always appreciated Peaches unique and fearless approach to music making and performing. After hearing her being interviewed I definitely gained respect for her as a person as well. Her message was clear. Be yourself and express yourself through your own creative means. Take it or leave it. I found her wise words extremely inspiring and I have been listening to Peaches tracks constantly since the interview!

This was the best interview that I have seen at CDR Berlin and there were a few more girls in the audience this time too! The CDR event happens monthly (or so) and gives the opportunity for electronic music makers to hear some inspiring words from those who have 'made it' in the industry. Audience members also have the opportunity to play their tracks at the end of the night. Perhaps more girls will start going to events now that Peaches has broken the 'no females draught'. Girl Power!!! 

My dodgy photo of Peaches being interviewed.
