Six Degrees for Sebago + Reed Space

Oct 14, 2012 @ 20:36
Some info on the sixº project..
Six degrees of separation is the idea that everyone is connected an
average of six steps away. Mdot has teamed up with Sebago to assemble
a dynamic team of bloggers and creative types to create a set of
iconic designs.

The sixº degrees collective includes one brand and five
ladies from around the globe, who represent some of the world’s most
dynamic cities: San Francisco, New York, Paris and Berlin. Mdot of
booji. Hana May of hearty magazine. Sandrine Sandrinette of
What ’s up Kids/colette team tumblr,
Mayra Fateh and Michal Tesler of eVe without adam.
Each of these ladies designed two shoes totaling 10 pairs for the collection.
The various designs are quite different reflecting the different identities of the team,
however all of the shoes are tied together in a way…
Bringing this wide range of identities together unveiled though far
apart, the women were linked by their passion, interests and drive.
Separated, yet connected.

Raised in a family business, Mdot (@boojilife) spent her younger years learning hands on how a business operates. These experiences were the root of her passion and drive to make things happen. Her motto is hard work always pays off. After studying I-D & furniture design, Mdot entered the footwear world with very little experience about creating footwear and the market. She spent 6 years co-directing JB Classics, an independent footwear brand. Involved in the day to day of building a brand was the experience that brought her to the next stage in her career. In 2008, she founded Booji, footwear & accessories brand. Keeping the momentum with creating and building a brand. Having a strong passion to make products led Mdot to branch out, working with other brands in different industries. Relationships like these sparked her to curate an all female influencers project with Sebago for AW12. The project includes 5 females from around the globe brought together to bring their styles and taste to the market from a female prospective. www.boojihouse.com


Raised on Ibiza in the good old hippie days & with a study stop-thru in Barcelona, Mayra Fateh (@mayrafateh) moved to Berlin in 2008 to work at the trade show Bread & Butter, where she is now Product Manager of the Street Fashion Area. Together with Michal Tesler she created the female online collective ‘eVe without adam’ in February 2010, a fresh format within the macro cosmos of lifestyle platforms, showing a contemporary mood-board of our Zeitgeist. As a fan of seeing the bigger picture, she is what we can call the new generation of flower children living in a present revolution of the female society. www.evewithoutadam.net

She teamed up with Mayra Fateh in 2009 to form M³Blogga, the duo later created their own online world named ‘eVe without adam’ in February 2010. This was the first German online address for female Streetwear and Lifestyle.
Since June, 2012, Michal is a freelancer, currently working on a
VICE project, as the Managing Editor of a major brand-online
magazine entitled ‘news for original girls’. Michal loves good music, extra ordinary art and distinctive fashion. www.evewithoutadam.net

Africa is her country and Paris is her city. Sandrinette (@sandrinetttttte)studied sociology for four years. Urban culture is her universe, with working at colette shop in Paris, France for the last seven years, has led her to create a web magazine, “What’s up kids!”. A site for kids, tweens/teens to find the latest in street-wear, music, events, & books. A web magazine with blogs held by young tastemakers themselves. Sandrinette also started a blog, Color Me Goood with her long time friend Marjorie “the other half of CMG”. A site which talks about everything & nothing specific. Sandrinette has been a member of colette team tumblr, which she blogs daily pictures from the colette shop. Sandrinette loves colors. Colors are what illuminate her days. www.colormegoood.com | www.coletteteam.tumblr.com
