Fancy a badger beret? Or a squirrel stovepipe? Well, JRF Rogue Milliner is your man… he makes hats out of roadkill. Edinburgh based artist James Robert Faulkner may sound mad as a hatter but he argues that his repurposing of fur (as well as tails, paws and faces) actually elevates these critters’ corpses into something beautiful and gives them a second life.
This incredible but true story is just one of hundreds of brilliant videos on ORGNL.TV a website set up by Stolichnaya® Premium vodka to highlight new art, music and fashion talent around the world and you’re invited to get involved.
You can vote for your favourites or even create your own films for submission. The top 6 finalists will be invited to a Stoli hosted show in New York in December, while the top 3 will win the chance to collaborate on projects with fashion designer Nary Manivong, urban stars Nina Sky and artist Jeremyville.
There’s some incredible stuff on there, ranging from established artists to up-and-coming stars of the future looking to get spotted. As well as the mad hatter, check our favourite films include one about RJD2, the brilliant musician who wrote the theme tune to Mad Men and another on Edinburgh band Stagger Rats, whose unique sound has been described as sounding like “The Jackson 5 singing Queens of the Stone Age”.
