Commissioned by Vice, Maroon World photographed five black women who are advocates for change in New York City, fighting for worker’s rights, increasing access to funding for important programs, and championing underrepresented voices in the arts as crucial acts of survival. These women are courageously creating, clearing, and taking space for other women and people of color in their respective industries, including media, the arts, science, technology, and exotic dancing.

October 17th – 18th in NYC.
Creative Directed and Produced by Maroon World, the Malin + Goetz Olfactory Dispensary was a two day sensory experience created to celebrate the launch of the newest Malin + Goetz perfume, cannabis EDP.
Inspired by each note of the fragrance, Maroon worked with Director Sonia Malfa to create a one minute film introducing guests to the multi-faceted scent, exploring the various natural states of bergamot, magnolia, pepper, cedar, sandalwood, and patchouli.
An examination of the complex relationship humans have with nature, and the preexisting beliefs we hold regarding cannabis’ place in our lives as an instrument of self-care, the installation was modeled after a modern day growhouse. Inside, guests were invited to taste, touch, and smell each fragrance note, in a curated array of food, organic materials, and cannabis EDP.
Behind the growroom, a dispensary station and pop up shop greeted guests.
“To say Maroon World — a just-launched biannual publication — is unlike other magazines would be an understatement. The ten editorials comprising its inaugural issue do not appear in sequential order; each story’s images aren’t presented cohesively, but shuffled together. This bold break from traditional layout forces viewers to consider how these images interact and coexist. The magazine is also wordless: no editor’s letter or table of contents — just immediate immersion into the richly colorful world the magazine depicts.
This non-traditional format isn’t the only reason Maroon World is an outlier among its glossy peers. Its contributors are familiar (Hood by Air, Ashish Gupta, Naomi Yasuda, and Jay Boogie all share space in its debut issue), but you’ve never seen their work like this. This is because Maroon World considers the nexus between fashion, culture, and art through an entirely POC perspective. Whether it’s images of toddlers getting ready for school in sparkly Ashish or a Hindu bride preparing to to walk down the aisle, each of Maroon World‘s pages is permeated by the beauty and struggle that shape the everyday POC experience.”
