The Encounter Sept/Oct 2015 Issue

I’m a little late in posting this, but some of my leather designs were featured in the fashion spread in the September/October 2015 issue of The Encounter Magazine. I love everything.

Vivienne Westwood fall/winter 2015 illustrations

I still have the doodle bug (will I ever NOT?) so I drew more runway looks.  Here is a set of charcoal drawings I did of Vivienne Westwood’s fall/winter 2015 menswear collection.

Katie Eary fall/winter 2015 illustrations

I’ve really been in the mood to draw/sketch/doodle/etc lately.  I was drawn to Kate Eary’s fall/winter 2015 menswear collection, so I decided to illustrate a few of the runway looks.  The color palette was SO saturated I could not wait to bust out my Prismacolors!

Audio Helkuik feature in Belle Armoire Winter 2015

 

Congratulations to me!

 

Belle Armoire’s winter 2015 issue ran a feature on my “h/g: you be the hunter, i’ll be the gatherer” collection.  This was the first time I was asked to write the copy for the feature which was equally cool and strange since I’m not a professional writer. The process was one I am familiar with: at first it was hard and then fun and then I cried and then I felt proud.  Kind of like any new artistic endeavor, right? Can’t complain being paid to write about myself though, since I am THE expert on me.  Heyo, hire me to write about me!

 

Enjoying this article I wrote about myself! Narcissism looks good on me.

I had make the tough choice between sending in a photo series or sending in my clothing collection. I opted to send my garments to the in-house photographer because I always love to see how other people shoot my clothing.  I love organizing photoshoots (okay, I hate organizing anything, c’mon….but I LOVE having control over how my work is shown), but I am becoming more and more curious to see how someone outside of my own brain can interpret the same concept. I gave up control.  You hear me?  I, Audio Heluik the Control Freak, GAVE. UP. CONTROL.

And the outcome was beautiful.

Fashion Spread in The Encounter (jan/feb 2015)

Omaha stylist, Nicholas Wasserberger, is doing some seriously phenomenal work.  I love when he requests my pieces for any of his upcoming photoshoots because I know I’m going to turn into the heart-eyed emoji when I see the final fashion spread in print.

Yesterday I got the Jan/Feb 2015 issue of The Encounter and Nicholas has done it again.  I have the heart-shaped eyes to prove it.

“Catch the Bus”

I finally got my hands on the March/April 2014 issue of The Encounter!!!!!  I’ve been looking forward to this issue for quite some time!  Some Audio Helkuik garments from the monoprismatic collection were featured in the fashion spread which was styled by Nicholas Wasserberger.  He paired the bright outfits with bold jewelry from Cibola’s in the Old Market.  I drool over the jewelry they have at Cibola’s all the time.  It’s one of the few places where I enjoy window shopping.  Turquoise in excess is always a good idea!  I couldn’t wait to see how Nicholas styled their jewelry with my clothing.

Excited to have a hard copy in my hands!

WANT. MORE. FASHION WEEK.

I’m seeing footage, reviews, photos, etc from Fashion Week in NYC popping up ALLLLLL over my social media.  It’s making me really really want to go to New York and have my own fashion week adventures.  Since that just didn’t happen this time around, I decided to go through all of my Omaha Fashion Week photos again.

Here are some of my newest photo favs from the fashion week adventures I had right here in Omaha.

My partner & I photographed at OFW by Kenal Photography. I’m rockin’ the tri-buns with a gilded forehead.  He’s rockin’ the handsome face.

One of my favorite Jenny Pool designs from her show this year and then Jenny Pool herself making total cute-face on the runway.

Got a little smirk from my model friend, Makayla Merolla. (She’s wearing an Angela Balderston creation.)

A shot of the moody runway scene Buf Reynolds and Dan Richters dreamt up for their show, VESSEL. Dress by Buf Reynolds. (Love the MST3K silhouette situation.)

Design by Buf Reynolds. Metal wing things. Yes please.

Boots. Made for walkin.’ You know the tune. (Photos from Nuevintage by Terri Buckner’s runway show.)

Dream boot alert! (Photo from Nuevintage by Terri Buckner’s runway show.)

This series of photos taken as Buf Reynolds’ spotted her sweetie, who was standing next to me, while she walked her designer lap on the runway after her finale show. (Adorable! Hilarious! Perfect!)

My partner, Cameron, in blue.

Red carpet couple. (photo by Herb Thompson.)

Fingers crossed that next year I’ll have NYFW photos to share, whether they’re from watching in the audience or backstage at my own show!  It’s just silly not to be there, right?
