THREADS: Misha and Sizwe in the city of a hundred lovers

Culture, Threads

Linking up with one of Auckland’s cutest couples Misha and Sizwe before they appeared together at New Zealand Fashion Week 2019, it was a surprise to learn this would be Misha’s first ever interview. The couple talk to S E R U M about what it’s like being Kiwi but also originating from another country, dating in the spotlight and also being boujee on a budget: 

How did Not For You Clothing come across you two when they were casting for their  NZFW/2019 show? 

Misha: Just Instagram and DM

Sizwe: Most of our works through Instagram 

And for you two it would be often hey? 

Sizwe: This one (points at Misha). 

Misha: Just promoting stuff  

How did that start for you? 

Misha: I just enjoy taking photos and dressing up  and stuff, then occasionally like brands will just hit me up to promote their clothing, from there it just got bigger and bigger. Random brands would start inviting me to events and stuff, I honestly don’t know what the heck, I wasn’t expecting it but I guess promoting on Instagram is the new way of advertising. 

Who’s the biggest one that you were like wow, cool. 

Misha: Fashion Nova.

Where were you when you got that DM?

Misha: I was just on my bed and I saw the DM from this lady, it was actually just Fashion Nova who DM’d me, I’ve never worn their clothes before or DM’d them so when I saw that notification I was just like what the heck and my heart started racing, I screenshot it and put it on my story, then Seez screenshot it and put it on his story too pretending he got sponsored [they both laugh out loud] but yeah that was so cool. 

So how does it work when you model an item for them? 

Misha: They just asked for my address, I choose a few items from their website and I have to post a picture within four weeks of receiving the item.

So not an issue

Misha: Yeah nah it’s pretty easy, its my hobby, so yeah.

Do they pay you for that girl?

Misha: Fashion Nova doesn’t, like big brands like that they just have heaps of stock, but small brands like New Zealand brands do. 

Ohhh who are the Kiwis let’s always support our local! 

Misha:  There’s Premium Clothing, me and Seez are both sponsored by that, it’s a New Zealand brand and Australia, then there’s Bambi Boutique we’ve been to a few events of theirs and Benefit Cosmetics NZ they’ve sent me some stuff too and then we’re walking for Not For You Clothing today too.

What took you to the States recently was that for modelling?

Misha: Oh I got sent to the States to be in a Snoop Dogg music video. 

So that’s still done through Instagram?

Misha: So for Instagram I was getting heaps of brands and heaps of emails from brands trying to organise something and this man from Instagram DM’d me, he’s now my manager and was the one who got me the opportunity to go in the Snoop Dogg video. He answers all my emails for clothing brands and stuff and organises a price because I suck at that, I just do everything for free and he’s like, ‘No you have to make money off it.’

So you’re slowly learning the business side of it as well? 

Misha: Yeah I’m like ‘OMG you can make money off it like Instagram is a real job’!

Sizwe: I wouldn’t say I am an influencer but if those opportunities come by, especially with this one, there are people that want us to work as couples and all that, modelling. I guess through me shooting my fits on Instagram and then opportunities will just come like, ‘Oh this guy knows how to rock his clothing.”  

For you, Insta’s not just rocking clothing though hey, you’re also a rapper. 

Sizwe: Nah, it ‘s me trying to build an image but it all goes around music. If I was to get fly or anything or put on any piece of clothing I’d hope that they’d be like ‘Oh this guy’s cool let’s go  check out his page’ and then find out that my main focus is music. 

So for you, when you wake up in the morning and you’re thinking about what to wear, what does your appearance do for your mood or vibe in the morning when you’re planning for that day?

Sizwe: I always try, I don’t want to look like anyone else. I want to put on something like when I walk down the street it will stay in your mind forever even if they just see me once and I’ve had people tell me that, then that’s a successful fit to me like, ‘Oh you’re that guy that was wearing this and that’. Someone once told me, ‘You’ve got that kind of look that will stay in my mind for like 10 years’ and that’s when I was like, ‘I like this shit, I like what I’m doing’. 

Since then working with Jet was a big one for you, too? 

Sizwe: Jet was a big influence, the biggest thing he told me was, in fashion and dressing there should be a theme. You’ve got to try and have a theme with it so that was the biggest thing, he told me but obviously he’s designing and stuff, he always put me in his clothes which is cool and I love helping out young people who are designing. 

Because it is a passion aye it’s not just.. like about clout and shit… if I was to sum up your style like real quick I would say like…. hood gothic…

Sizwe Yeah! Hood goth definitely. 

What about you girl..

Misha  Hmmmm, how do clothes define Misha…

Sizwe: Baddie 

Misha : Yeah just going for that bad bitch Insta baddie or Bratz Doll…just like what you see on Instagram that’s what I wanna be in real life.

Do y’all mostly get support for what you’re doing? 

Misha: Mostly support yeah but it does attract unwanted attention just for standing out and stuff.

Sizwe: Yeah 

Can we talk about those things a bit more?

Misha: Yeah sure, me personally because I am Indian there’s not  a lot of girls who wear, I guess we will say revealing clothing so there’s a lot of Indian people that will look down on me but then the majority are Indians who look up to me because there’s the sense that they can wear whatever they want and not hold back…Young girls mostly that’s my main audience, young Indian girls and that’s cool that I can inspire them, so yah.

It’s cause you’re challenging barriers or old school restrictions hey

Misha: Yeah even with my own parents and stuff they would not approve of my outfits until they saw that I could create a platform and stuff out of it and now they just approve of it it’s all they can do but they don’t really say anything too.

Sizwe: Yeah just let you walk outside and pretend they didn’t see it.

Misha: Yeah they let me walk out the door. 

Lol were there times where there times where they wouldn’t approve?

Misha: Yeah they’d just be like, ‘What are you wearing’!?

Are you from New Zealand? 

Misha: I was born in India and so I moved here when I was one so I was brought up here as a Kiwi.

Sizwe: I’m from Auckland, born and raised here but I’m from South Africa, I’m part Indian too – my dads Indian, I don’t know my dad  I wasn’t raised with him, I was raised in a South African household – always been in Auckland Great North Road, Avondale ways, Waterview. 

Would you guys called yourself third culture kids? 

Sizwe: Nah 

Kiwis

Sizwe: Definitely Kiwis but with my culture – I don’t know my mum didn’t never force culture on me .

Misha:  Same as me like my parents moved here so I could grow up with this sort of culture like be more free, I guess. 

Sizwe: Yeah same to be honest

Yeah cause it’s your generation now that get to kinda make those rules and forge that identity for the future 

Sizwe: Yeah I don’t know how to explain that too but I get what you mean – I know exactly what you mean my mum –  it’s just not forced on me – but as an immigrant I don’t know, you’d expect us to hold that like that South African Indian thing,  but I don’t know if it’s just never been pushed on to me.

I feel like a lot of us in those positions take on dress and pop culture, as our culture, like it goes a lot deeper than just material on your body it’s another way to make your own identity right? 

Sizwe: As soon as I noticed that and started going on the gram and noticing and getting into fashion I started feeling like I can do this, I can make my own culture, I can make my own wave I just felt like it could be my own thing and all my people, my family overseas they see that and they’re fine with it and all that.

What are you hoping the youth will pick up from you as a popular person? 

Sizwe: I guess with my music I feel like …the kids need to say it at a young age. When I started – I met you when I was 14  – I was just talking through my music and with the dress code I think, dress however you want and not let age be a limit.

Cause in New Zealand you can right?

Sizwe: Yeah cause like it’s real hard shopping in New Zealand, like finding pieces. 

Misha: That’s so true.

Sizwe: Getting to know your local designers and all that is like being in touch with what’s next and what your local designer’s gonna put up, I think the kids should be involved in that because I don’t know where to shop in New Zealand, like I really don’t.

Where do you shop? 

Sizwe: Online or through friends like I went to Australia and went through heaps of my mate’s designs, so I just got heaps of his shit.

Is it because you’re just not into what NZ has got?

Sizwe: I was to go to the store and get something right now it would be like an Adidas tracksuit at the most. They just don’t have what you want here. In Oz it goes harder but not really here I can’t find anything here – what is there like Loaded?

How do you guys feel like paying $300 for a pair of jeans, I think that’s on average what you pay here for ‘style’…

Misha: Nah bougie on a budget that’s what I like to go by. 

Sizwe you’ve just signed to Gallatino I mean aesthetically they’d be one of the most on point in NZ so far, I’d say…

Sizwe: True Tapz and Mzwetwo, I think they put me on because they needed someone young and in touch with the internet I don’t even know how to put a name on their swag but Otis has had my back forever, he was the one who put me in the studio first and as soon as I linked with Tapz and worked on my new shit ‘Why’, I’ve just dropped ‘Why’, I’ve seen more opportunities come through to do with music. Otis is a good manager he’s cool and Tapz is just like the best big brother, I just wanna be like Tapz to be honest I’ve always looked up to Tapz he’s just always travelling I wanna do what he does. 

That’s the plan? 

Sizwe: That’s the plan for sure. 

Now that ‘Why’ has come out what can your people’s look for next?

Sizwe: Album, more tracks this year. 

This year?

Sizwe: This year…Nah I promise this year we looking at like December.

And also… couple question, being a couple dating  both definitely have got Instagram heat, whats that like? 

Misha: I’ve always wanted it like I can’t picture myself with someone who isn’t into dressing up and flexing and stuff so Seeze is just like,  we enjoy it, it’s our hobby. 

Sizwe: I mean we’re just like the same people, she’s like the girl version of me I’m the boy version of her. It always takes us hours and ages to get dressed because we’re so fucken picky with our outfits.

And you do it together? 

Sizwe: Yeah we do it together  we rate outfits she’s like, ‘nahh you can’t wear that today, nah nah nah’…I love having someone who I personally think looks good and can see me get dressed too you know what I mean it’s probably the best part of it too.

Did  you think you’d find that with someone when you met her? 

Sizwe: Nah I didnt but to be honest when I saw it I was like ‘Nah I need that’.

And so it was like a long game thing or was it like ‘You, come with me’.. .

Sizwe: Nah that was exactly it, ‘you come with me’ literally. 

Misha: Yeah it was just like, you’re my girlfriend now, he never asked me out  he just said ‘okay now you’re my girlfriend’ (lols) And I’m just like, what, like ask me out but it’s cool.

Sizwe: The exact words was like ‘I’m ready to be loyal’ that’s it.

Misha: Yeah I was just like what, ‘what does that mean’…like what?

What’s it like dating a rapper

Misha: Omg it’s cool, yeah …But I’d like to go to a few shows and stuff, we’ll see, it’s cool when fans come up to him on the street. 

Sizwe: Being in Auckland it’s real small so getting your name out, I couldn’t imagine this much hype, like when we’re walking on the street people stop us like someone just stopped us on the way here.

Misha: It’s like why me you know I just take selfies and people come up to me to get photos like, huh.

Is it a bit awkward to have that much attention? 

Misha: No it’s cool but you always just feel like..

Seez: I love it, it’s cool  

Misha: Yeah I love it too …

Sizwe: I wouldn’t say ‘Why me’ I feel like I worked a bit and got a reason.  

Misha: Yeah he’s a musician so I get why he receives that much attention, but I’m just an influencer so I didn’t expect it . But I obviously love all the positive attention and support, it means a lot.

Is there a difference between an influencer and a model? 

Misha: Yeah there’s a huge difference. Models aren’t their own boss, as they never have a say in how they want to look. However, I always get to choose the clothing I promote and I can always do my makeup how I want which basically means I’m always guaranteed to feel comfortable and confident knowing I’m being myself.

So you get to make your own rules in a way? 

Misha: Basically that’s what I wanted to do, I don’t want to be with an agency but I’ve modelled for a few boutiques and stuff.

What is it about an agency you don’t vibe with?

Misha: They won’t let me do my own makeup and stuff, I like the way I do my eyelashes, little things.

Who are the top five people that influence you guys style wise?

Sizwe: Kanye, Kid Cudi, Playboi Carti, Jet and my mum, just with emotions and dealing with life.

Is clout chasing important: 

Misha: No?! What. 

Sizwe: I noticed the difference between clout  chasing and being hungry, I think being hungry is important I could say clout chasing and the best example of it is like fake fuckign with people, or fake showing love or just riding waves and all that – that’s not cool like that’s not important but being hungry is definitely important and letting people know that you’re hungry is definitely important, I like showing people that I’m hungry.  

And what 3 tracks would you put on your own runway playlist: 

Misha: Aw yeah that Lady Gaga one, ‘walk walk fashion baby’….

Sizwe: Yeah what’s that one called again – is it Bad Romance?

Misha: Paparazzi! I’d have like Nicki Minaj,  any of her songs hey, she just puts me in some sort of mood. 

Sizwe: Okay, Paparazzi Lady gaga, Kanye West  Black Skinhead and Kid Cudi Dance for Eternity.

Yo, have you guys practiced your walks? 

Misha: We were just doing that walking across the road like ‘try not smile’, when we on our way here actually. 

Anything I haven’t asked you that you want people to know about modelling, rapping, being a couple or being cute in general..

Sizwe: Respect women, dress how you feel.

Misha: Be confident. 

Sizwe: Definitely always do your best, give it your all and make an effort to make people smile during the day, love your parents especially if you’re an immigrant you gotta like know, you gotta know how much your parents did to get you here and not let them down. That’s got to be my biggest part and that’s my inspiration I always think about what my mum did to get me here from South Africa and that just gets me out of bed everyday. 

Interview: Sunday Misfits – ‘Tomboys Who Love Boys Who Love Girls’

Threads

Auckland based clothing label Sunday Misfits are about to release their 2014 seasonal-drop video. Directed by long time friend and well-known Kiwi artist Askew, they explain: “Sunday Misfits is not just the two of us, nor is it just a business. When we started the thinking around it, the idea was to get as many cool females as we could and just absorb their energy, their creativity and then put it out and express it”, says founder and owner Krishna Marinas. Her other half in the business – Amber Booth, sits next to her sipping a house white at Rakinos (RIP) on a Tuesday night.

As the girls express their gratitude toward the creative community in Auckland (that they’ve grown up in), DJ Toru (from Third3ye) and Brandon Haru (of Ladi6, Doubledip & @Peace) both say what up as they pass through. When I ask them when they fell in love with hip hop, Krishna and Amber both say that it was from the emotion the music evoked in them.  “You could be having the shittiest day but a good song can change your whole vibration.. Almost the same as what we’re trying to do with our clothes. We want to make you feel something. We don’t want to play some whack-ass beat that makes you want to turn it off. We want to make something that makes you feel good inside and changes your whole persona.”

DS: Who are the Sunday Misfits? 

A: It’s anyone who has that vibe that we’re trying to project. I think it’s pretty obvious with the garments that we make and everything we’ve been putting out on the website — it’s got quite a lot of attitude but is still feminine and sexy —you got that street wear with a tomboyish vibe as well. Our catch phrase is ‘tomboys who love boys who love girls’ that sums it up pretty well.

K: But even the symbol; the heart that we use, it’s really just about love and you know being respectful. Being honest and true to you.

“A girl can play basketball and sports and still go out to town with your girls in a nice little black dress.” 

DS: Are you both tomboys? 

K: I am, [laughs]. I have to say I am.

A: She’s probably more so than me — I might not wear sneakers everyday, but growing up I always hung out with the boys at school and played sports. I was so much more comfortable being a boys’ girl than a girls’ girl.

DS: What is it about ‘that kind of girl’ that drove you to start Sunday Misfits.. Is it that you didn’t have somewhere to shop already? 

A: It was [about shopping for] things that we always wanted and could never find, like always buying men’s garments and having to alter them to fit a female and [finding] all the street wear for girls was too feminine.

Happy Easter lovers #teaser

A post shared by Sunday Misfits (@sundaymisfits) on

K: Or [finding] that the street wear for girls exposes the female and you know not every female is interested in short shorts or a tight tank tops. For me it was about putting a product out there that tells girls, ‘it’s ok to be a tomboy. It’s ok to dress like a boy’. You can still be a girl.

A: You can still feel feminine.

K: A girl can play basketball and sports and still go out to town with your girls in a nice little black dress.

“We don’t want to do things because society thinks that’s how we should do it. We want to do it right and stay true to that standard of how we want to dress and feel.”

DS: As you guys have come along, have you come across others working on similar ideas? 

A: Not really actually. I think that’s the thing, there seems to be a gap in the market and everyone that we’ve talked to are like, ‘Oh, we need that‘. Even with Arcade who are stocking us and threw a launch party for us — they were like, ‘we’ve been looking for a girl’s brand, but we haven’t found anything that’s right’. We want to make things but we don’t want to cut corners, we don’t want to do things because society thinks that’s how we should do it; we want to do it right and stay true to that standard of how we want to dress and feel. To me, it feels like people who make street wear for girls are probably men and they do a really good job at making mens’ street wear but then it’s like, ‘oh, a girl’s top. We’ll make it pink and we’ll make it tight’ and it’s like, we don’t wanna fucken wear that, you know?

DS: Have you guys developed signature materials or designs for Sunday Misfits?

A: I think all of our stuff is quality. We don’t use cheap materials. It’s all leather or silk, merino, cotton and it’s all of the highest quality. We decided that we wanted to make classic pieces that we want to have forever. Not just trends that will be around for a season and then you get sick of it. So I think that is a statement for us — we want classics and quality.

DS: Who are the designers?

A: We are.

K: We collaborate on things and work with pattern makers who we tell our ideas to – we work that way.

Forever in love with the Muse. 😍

A post shared by Sunday Misfits (@sundaymisfits) on

DS: Who are they?

K: We’ve used a friend of ours Teresa, and Trish who is one of the main pattern makers that we’ve got. She really brings both of our ideas and designs to life.

DS: Describe a Sunday Misfit girl.

K: Someone who loves herself. Someone who is honest. Whether or not they’re wearing the tomboy stuff or whether they’re into the more feminine stuff we make, it’s someone who is honest and can put on anything they want and feel good about themselves. She’s someone who loves her family and friends.

A: Confident.

DS: Do you mean honest with themselves?

K: Yeah. Personally I did struggle with identity and self-esteem growing up; migrating from a different country to NZ and I think I’m starting to get to that point where I’m confident and happy with who I am, so I want that to translate with the designs and the clothes that I put out there.

A: I guess the way that I dress is an expression of how I feel that day. If I wake up and I’m like, ‘hmm, I feel like looking like this’…I will choose my outfits depending on my mood.

DS: Why is comfortable sexy?

K: Comfortable is sexy because you don’t have to wear makeup. Although I wear makeup it’s about feeling like I don’t have to wear it to feel beautiful. When I’m at home and I wake up, like when I’m with my partner and I’ve just woken up, he looks at me like he loves me, that’s sexy.

A: Also feeling like you don’t have to wear tight skimpy things — to me, that’s sexy. You don’t have to show skin or be a hoochie mama; you can be comfortable and feel good in what you’re wearing and be able to move and carry something in a way that you feel good about yourself and have it not be demeaning to yourself or anyone else.

DS: Do you think, perhaps, boys/men have something that’s innate when it comes to self-confidence?

A: I definitely think like, all my girlfriends are tomboys. At school I found it so hard to relate to girls because the boys would hang out and talk shit, play sport, muck around. Then I remember hitting puberty and thinking, ‘man I better find some girl-friends because people are starting to talk’… But I remember trying to hang out with girls and they’d bitch and cat about each other and I was like ‘I can’t do this’,  ‘I don’t know how to be like this’. So I think there’s a difference.. I have found anyway. A lot of girls that you meet, it’s just a different mentality; boys are pretty much laid back you know, not really, drama.

K: For me, I grew up with a lot of guy cousins and am really close to my brother. When we were kids all the girls were forced to do either ballet or piano and the boys got to play basketball and do all that. And, I just hate — I mean, not that I hated piano, but I had a really old piano teacher who’d fall asleep on me and all I could think was ‘as soon as she falls asleep, I can skip class and go play basketball with the boys’. So a lot of the tomboyness came from me just playing around a lot of boys and as I grew older it was almost a rebellion toward the idea of femininity. I was like, I don’t have to act a certain way or wear a certain thing to be a woman.

DS: And where are you guys from?

A: I’m from Auckland – I went to Avondale College.

K: I was born in the Philippines and I came here just after the mid 90’s.

DS: Describe Auckland’s fashion scene from your POV? 

A: It’s a little bit timid…. But we’re working on that [smiles].

K: I think more so (for me anyway), Auckland seems a little bit clicky. And I think people – although they are starting to get a little bit bolder and braver with expressing themselves – I just think more people need to do it more.

A: In Auckland people seem to care a lot about what other people think. That’s one thing I’ve notice about other cities — you go somewhere and no one there gives a fuck. Everyone’s just themselves..

DS: What challenges have you faced launching SM?

K: Money.

A: Money and time.

K: We both work full-time and those sort of suppliers work Monday to Friday 8-5 so whatever time we get at lunchtime is pretty much what we have.

A: Ever since we decided to do this it’s been like every lunch time, everyday after work, pretty much like having two full-time jobs and it’s like getting fuck-all sleep and my social life has taken a back burner but I don’t care because this is important to me. It’s fulfilling in a different way; to be able to do something for myself that I love, for me and not ‘the man’. This is our passion and it’s not about making money straight away, it’s about actually living out our dream and satisfying our soul — in a way that for a long time you have those doubts like, I don’t know if I can do this.

DS: Do you remember the moment where you let all that doubt go?

A: I do remember reading a quote – and it’s so funny, since we decided to do this so many things have just popped up in my face as encouragement. The quote was, “stop thinking about the million reasons why you can’t and focus on the reason why you can”. And I was like ‘I can do this, it’s not unachievable’. It’s only your own mindset that makes it that way. Now that we are doing it, we haven’t really come up against things that have stopped us; once we take that step towards it, a million things come back and it’s like yeah, do it. Everyone loves it – everyone supports us.

K: Even before we started, people in that industry had told us – it’s a bad time to start, it’s a recession, people are just not selling; all these factories are closing down. But I think because I believed in it and I believe in Amber…

A: I would hear people say that – like the pattern makers and the machinists would say – “oh it’s so hard out there, retail’s really hard”, and I would hear it and was like, ‘I don’t care’. It didn’t put me off at all. It didn’t matter. There wasn’t anything that was like, ‘oh shit, maybe I shouldn’t’. It was just like – we’re going to do it anyway. And now we’ve gotten to a point where almost everyday I feel like pinching myself because I can’t believe how supportive everyone has been. Even when we’ve gone through a few pattern makers and machinists — we meet someone and they’re lovely so it’s like, oh you’re right, you’re the right one. And it always works out like that… I love that exchange.

DS: And the models on your site aren’t your stereotypical models, is that intended? 

A&K: Yup.

K: Also the models are our friends. And these are the friends who inspired us and have been apart of our journey. You know, they’re not directly involved with the designing but they sure help push us into being a little bit more brave and taking that step forward. I think they’re beautiful and these are girls that you might not see on a typical runway… But you’ll definitely see them on a Sunday Misfits runway.

A: They’re real as well you know? Like, who wants to see stick thin models wearing shit? We don’t want coat hangers, we want real women.

K: And these are also girls that I think are great ambassadors (for the brand) because they’re good people.

A: What we perceive as beauty is personality as well — not just the exterior, but actually how you are as a person. When you think ‘oh she’s beautiful’, it’s because she’s beautiful on the inside.

K: I don’t know anyone who has a bigger and more heart warming smile than Taran. And I don’t know anyone who has a nicer more honest laugh than Jamie and Huni. I don’t know anyone who’s more soft-spoken and as kind as Huni or more creative and fun-loving as Cookie.. And these are girls that have the attributes of a Sunday Misfit. So we want it to be honest right from the garment to the way we express our brand as well.

DS: Who are some of your favorite tomboy wearers? 

K: Vashtie.

A: Yeah. She’s probably our muse. When we think about someone wearing our stuff she would be it.

K: Yeah she’s like New York’s downtown sweet heart.

DS: Okay fun ones. The world needs more….

K: Love.

A: Yeah…

DS: The world needs less…

A: WAR! Less fucken idiots. Less idiots in high positions making stupid fucking decisions.

DS: And when did you fall in love with Hip Hop?

A: I used to wake up on Saturday mornings and record RTR countdown and playback all the songs I loved. My first memories were Janet Jackson, In Living Colour — those are my earliest memories of Hip Hop. I felt such a connection with that vibe. I always knew that’s what I was into.

K: There were Filipino rappers like Masta Plann who used the same beats as Naughty By Nature… That helped me figure life out at 12-years-old.. I can’t tell you what song but I would hear these samples and be like, ‘whoa you can do that’? ‘Use that beat and rap over it?’…I love the emotion Hip Hop evokes in me when I listen to beats. Put the perfect lyric and the perfect beat together, it’s kind of like…

A: It’s the vibration aye?  That pure vibration that stirs something up inside you. You could be having the shittest day and it changes your whole vibration.
