Isn't it time we talked about...the tampon tax?
We all know when ‘that time of the month’ is just around the corner. One minute we’re crying over the latest episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and the next we’re biting our partner’s head off for buying the wrong kind of pasta. Fast forward a day or two and good old mother nature rears her bloody head, spoiling our brand new lace thong. When you think of periods, we’re sure there’s a few words that come to mind. Annoying. Painful. Exhausting. Luxury? No, we didn’t think so. But according to some governments, who slap a tax of up to 27% on our period products, menstruation is just that. A luxury. This so called ‘tampon tax’ puts sanitary products in the same tax bracket as items including jewellery, beer, wine, and cigarettes. Menstruation, cramps, PMS, and 5 days of leaking blood from our vaginas, what a luxury right? As women, we have come to accept that periods are a personal issue that we should deal with and pay for on our own. But, sanitary products are a necessity that half of the population have to buy for half of our lives. We don’t choose to have periods. We don’t book in a week every month for a ‘luxury vacay’. We don’t look forward to cramps or PMS. So why are we being charged extra as if we are? While there are some EU countries that have worked to remove or reduce the VAT on sanitary products (round of applause for Ireland, Cyprus and the UK), some countries are still charging women a premium. The problem is this; while most of us are lucky enough to be able to afford our period products each month, luxury tax or not, there are millions of women worldwide who can’t. Whether that’s a single mum who has to choose between tampons or dinner for her kids, or a teenage girl skipping school because she doesn’t want to bleed through her uniform. The bottom line is that the tampon tax puts women at a disadvantage. And why should we be put at a disadvantage for having the almighty-life-giving-power-source that is the vagina? Despite the fact that half of us have to deal with periods once a month for the majority of our lives, they have this secretive stigma around them. For some reason, we don’t talk about our periods, in fact, we actively try to hide the fact that we all have them. Why are we secretly sliding tampons up our coat sleeve when we go to the toilet, or awkwardly worrying what people are thinking if we take our handbag to the loo? Being open about our periods and making menstruation more visible is the first step in removing this stigma and normalising something that is so. freaking. normal. The more we shine a light on the fact that half the world is bleeding from our mf vaginas at any given time, the more that politicians are going to realise this isn’t a choice and this isn’t a goddamn luxury. What can you do to get involved? Sign a tampon tax petition in your local area, and pledge a donation to the #freeperiods movement on crowdjustice.com. You can also share this blogpost to your socials, and post a photo of your period products haul to insta with the hashtag #tamponsarenotaluxury. But, don’t forget, the easiest way to free the period is to simply get talking about it! Written by Jade BiggsOriginal cover artwork by @thisisaliceskinner
Meet New ISLA Artist Miu - Bringing Nail Art with a Surrealist Edge to Berlin
Japan has long been known for it's love of nail art, from the most minimal of styles to the almost inconceivable (sushi roll on your fingertip anyone...?!). But alongside the crazy and kawaii creations comes true artistry, in a country that takes beauty and self care extremely seriously.Take Tokyo for example; a place bursting with new talent in an industry where competition is high. So in a city so full of people and with nail salons on each and every corner, how does one set itself apart from the next and furthermore, how do they survive? We met with ISLA's new nail artist, Miu, to discuss some of the answers. Originally from Osaka, Miu trained at art school before moving to Tokyo to pursue her career as a nail artist working alongside some of Japan's most successful artists. Working in Tokyo's fast lane for three years, Miu soon established her own style which led her to work in New York, London, Melbourne and now ISLA in Berlin.I: How did your career in nail art begin? M: After attending art school, my original plan was to become a tattoo artist. However, in Japan tattoos are still not widely accepted so working in that industry felt a little risky. Nail art appealed to me because it is a way to express yourself as an artist and create unique designs yet somehow in a less controversial way.I: Why do you think nail art is so popular in Japan? M: Nail art is such a huge part of our culture now. In Japan, we love things to be 'kawaii' (cute) and nail art has become an extension of that. It's another way that we can express ourselves and our personalities. I: With so much competition in Tokyo, how do you think nail salons survive? M: I think the key for each salon or artist to be successful is to find their own style or genre that makes them different from other artists. In Japan we are almost spoilt because we have so many options to choose from. The demand is huge and clients often have very high expectations so it is important that each artist really excels at what they do.I: Who are your main influences and how would you define your style? M: During my time in Tokyo I worked at a nail salon in Harajuku called Avarice (@nailsalonavarice_harajuku) where I met a talented artist named Yuko (@yko1220) who was also from the same hometown as me. She creates extremely detailed, almost fine art designs and I immediately related to and admired her style - I really learned a lot from her. My work is also heavily influenced by artists such as Dali and Magritte whom I studied at art school. I love how their paintings are so detailed and transport you to another world. I: How do you think nail art designs differ between Europe and Japan? M: In Japan, most people generally prefer to keep their nails short and use the natural shape and length as the base to create designs, whereas in Europe clients are more willing to experiment with long, acrylic nails and embellishments. I'm enjoying learning the differences between what clients want in Berlin and the challenge of creating different styles for them. It's a constantly evolving industry, always open to new possibilities which is what I love about it. I: How did you discover ISLA and what do you hope to bring to your new clients in Berlin? M: I discovered ISLA through Instagram shortly after arriving in Berlin and began searching for work as a nail artist. There are very few places in Berlin doing nail art in the way they do so I was immediately drawn to ISLA's style and contacted ISLA directly hoping they might be looking for a new nail artist. I love to create detailed artistic designs so this is something unique I can bring to ISLA. I: You've been in Berlin for a month now; how are you enjoying it so far? M: I love how liberal and free it is here, it seems like individuality is really embraced in this city. I have only been here a short time so have lots to explore but so far I particularly love the east side as well as the street art which really inspires me. Being a vegan, I also love having so many options of where to eat here!I: And finally, who would be your dream client? M: I am a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino movies and love Samuel L. Jackson. He might not be into nail art but I would just love to meet him!To meet Miu in person and experience her unique nail art designs, contact ISLA for an appointment on +49 162 9741809 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org Written by Hazel Hedges

I’m growing a lot as a person” she said.Steffi, a 21 year old creative with a Cuban background combines art and fashion with her brand Oshosix. “I’ve been trying to find my place in space,” she said, “last year was about feeling comfortable all round, socially and fashion wise. This year is about embracing what I really want or need and not making as many compromises as I used to.” “I’m learning my value and have started treating myself and others around me better” she said, “that’s what I’m proud of.”Rapper singer and all-round female boss Gianni Mae hails from the Caribbean island of Curaçao and is making some serious waves in the Berlin music scene. “I’m proud of the fact that I have my first EP on the way and that I have some great shows planned this summer, like splash! festival,” she said. In 2 years time she plans to have her “songs playing worldwide, traveling, and doing shows all over the world” and we’re so excited to see where this rising star ends up.

Here's why that AliExpress deal is too good to be true
If you’ve spent any time on Facebook or Instagram recently, we’re sure you’ve seen the ads for those low-cost fast-fashion items that just seem too good to be true.Whether it’s a pair of platform sneakers for €10.99, or a handbag for just €7, more often than not these products are knock-offs of independent designers who have worked hard to produce their items.Sites like AliExpress have saturated the market with cheap products that manufacture low-quality replicas of the real deal.“Bolstered by stolen images, aggressive ads, and images of certificates from places like PayPal, the sites regularly sucker consumers into buying clothing straight from China - and it often bears little resemblance to the pictures they saw online” said a report from Buzzfeed.“If and when the garments finally arrive, shoppers say they’re frequently small enough to fit children, their color is off, and they are made from flimsy materials,” the report adds. “Sometimes they smell like chemicals. And, customer service, typically located in China, is barely reachable, especially when it comes to returns and refunds.”But, more importantly, mass produced knock offs like these impact the business of small independent designers whose unique ideas are being stolen.Here at ISLA we recently came across one of our pieces being replicated and sold on the site AliExpress; one of our all-time favourite items, the Pussy Grabs Back Dickini in collaboration with Namilia.Out of curiosity we decided to order the “dickini” and see how the quality compared to the real deal. The photos speak for themselves really, and you can clearly see the difference in quality between the knock off, and the authentic item. Ever heard the saying “you vs the man she tells you not to worry about”, we think you catch our drift!!Remember, next time you see a deal that’s too good to be true, it probably is. So, if you want the real deal, you don’t need to go far, buy the authentic and original Pussy Grabs Back Dickini in-store or online at ISLA.

The body positive workshop you don't wanna miss
We’re all about spreading body positivity and self-love here at ISLA. So when Girls* Support Girls* approached us to host a Body and Sensuality workshop, it was a big yes from us. “The forever controversial and objectified female body is commented on, criticised, praised, and shamed by the whole world - especially when it comes to expressing sexuality, sensuality or body positivity” says Andra, who’ll be running the workshop on 12th May. Do I need to show skin to be sexy? When is a woman a woman? Do I need to show skin to be sexy? Gym, eyebrows, make up, nails, waxing: Am I perfect now? These are just a few of the “constant fights in our heads and with society/males”, says Andra. “The female body is actually one of the most beautiful forces of nature” she adds, so “females should feel free to explore their body and sensuality.” And Andra’s Body and Sensuality workshop is your chance to do exactly that. A regular on the ballroom voguing scene, Andra competes in a category called Sex Siren that allows her to set her “sexual energies free in a safe space”. The ballroom scene “made me a more confident woman” she says, “and I wanna share this liberating journey with you.” The workshop will be split into three categories; talk, exercise, and play. The talk session is all about sharing experiences in our fem bodies. During the exercises, we’ll connect with and gain confidence in our bodies and senses. Finally, during the playground session, there’s time to experiment with your body and find your own way of expression. Andra will be hosting Body and Sensuality at ISLA on May 12th from 4-7pm and the workshop is open to all female identifying people and non-binary fems. There are limited spaces though so make sure to register via email@example.com to secure your place. The event is donation based. Wear whatever you want to the workshop, but make sure you personally feel sexy in your lewwwwk and get ready to work up a sweat too! See you there...

5 tattoo artists who should be on your radar
Tattoos have been around for centuries. From Cambodian monks who were tattooed with symbols of their beliefs, to Pacific Islanders who used tattoos to display respect for their Gods and attract good health. Towards the 1800s, tattoos started being used as an art form by British sailors who adorned their bodies with tattoos showing off their lovers, birthing the pin-up girl and the iconic old school tattoo era. Fast forward a couple of hundred years and it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t decorated their body with a tattoo or two. From minimal linear designs to intricate shaded pieces, tattooing has truly taken on its own world. Whether you’re already a walking artwork yourself or looking to get your first inking, here’s a few of our fave artists out there at the moment. Soju Princess Hot on the tails of her residency here at ISLA, how could we not include our sis Soju Princess? Yvonne is a self confessed “Molotov cocktail in an ocean of professionals”. We love the way she blends linear minimalism with quirky designs like this dragon, banana man, and T-Rex.

A look at cult 90s label X-girl
What happens when you mix one part fashion student, and one part synth pop star? Cult label X-girl was born in 1994, founded by stylist Daisy von Furth and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon. “Back in the 90s, you weren’t cool if you weren’t wearing X-girl” says Dazed magazine’s Morgan Nyfeler, “with its logo t-shirts, A-line dresses and androgynous look, the brand established itself as the go-to for skater girls.” Kim and Daisy designed clothes that they wanted to wear and the label was considered to be “a pioneer of the ‘girls movement’ in the fashion industry.” They wanted “something that was really of the moment” said X-girl pattern maker Wendy Mullin, “at the time, ‘girl power’ was coming out and this idea of ‘anything boys can do, girls can do better’.” “It was really part of that early 90s feminist thing happening” said Wendy. Reminiscing about the brand, Vogue’s Rebecca Johnson said “it was the gateway fashion drug for 90s girls like me who were anti-establishment, anti-mainstream, anti-consumer, strictly secondhand, skate-schooled, reared on DIY ethics, on punk, hip-hop, with a shot of indie rock.” In 1998 the brand was bought out by a Japanese company, and fast forward 20 years later X-girl continues to churn out cult-classic looks “inspired by rock, military, outdoor, sports and many other street culture factors.”With the growing reemergence of cult 90s clothing, blended with the iconic styles of the y2k era, the X-Girl look is back on trend. The brand’s most recent collections ooze punk girl power, and add just the right amount of 90s feminist aesthetic to any look. Some of our fave pieces are the X-Girl Plaid Skirt, X-Girl Wide Jacket with Big Pockets, X-Girl Flowing Earclips and the X-Girl Desert Camo Pants. Check out the X-girl lookbook below and shop the brand instore and online at ISLA.
