Defend New Orleans Shop

    Since 2003 Defend New Orleans has been “Dedicated to celebrating, preserving, and promoting New Orleans culture.” I could not imagine another statement that is more inline with our own here at The brand’s uptown store is a divinely curated shop dedicated to extending DNO’s mission in the form of a unique brick and mortar depot.

    It was a pretty frigid morning when Hollie and i met up for our shoot at the Orange Couch. Shimmering with energy and excitement we set out into the cold to snap a few pics.

    Smoke – Artisan Perfume Oil

    New Orleans has always in my mind, been a town filled with artisans. Whether it’s creating that one seminal dish, a painting filled with impasto, or a couture dress, we’ve always been a city of creatives. Since Katrina, there’s been an explosion of artisans. Kathleen Currie, with her Smoke Perfume Oil, is at the forefront of the latest crop of artisans leaving their mark.

    No White Flags

    You’d have to have lived under the huey p. Long bridge for the last 6 years or so not to know who Steve Gleason is. This past summer, a statue outside the Mercedes Benz Superdome will forever remind us all just how important Steve Gleason is to our city and to our beloved Saints.

    Burlesque Ballroom

    It seems to me that the burlesque scene around Nola has exploded. Burlesque has been a part of cultural landscape since the inception of Jazz and we are quickly becoming the town that all other scenes are measured.
