We had the opportunity for the first time to be featured on multiple pages for this awesome local production Mesh Magazine.
The description of their work directly from FB:
new printed magazine based in tiotia:ke - socalled montreal - exploring vulnerability within cultures through photography, illustration and words. we acknowledge that we live on stolen land, on the traditional territory of the kanien’kehá:ka people.
Vulnerability is the very essence of what you get from looking at their two first editions... We went into this hoping to convey our essence and make something that really represented who we were while giving all that we could to adhere to this editions theme about bodies titled: Substance.
When we showed them the shoot we were overjoyed by their reactions. They were both awed and excited, "Mmm'ing" wickedly... (Had to, sorry!) Giving each other "OH Yas!" faces, the works, we couldn't have had a better reaction.
We went into this hoping to get a few photos chosen out of hundreds of shots and they tell us we're being given a six page spread, SIX Pages! With text. You really must get your hands on this and see the rest of this magazine and our pictures in all their glory. =^-~=

June 2 2018 we celebrated with over 100 attendee's eager to see the work and listen in on performances of the literary additions to the magazine. The performances were raw and evocative, our work displayed on the wall surreal...
Honestly, seeing our work displayed as it was, listening to peoples reactions was a big boost for us. Gave us another little push letting us know we were going in the right direction. All in all we are SO happy with the results!
Mesh; Gabrielle Léa & Sorya Nguon for giving us this wonderful chance.
Their two first printed works are wonderful testament's to their skills and dedication to our Montreal queer community, you are both magnificent.

Finally, we would like to thank our team:
soeursoeurs for the work she continues to do for us. This is the second shoot we do together and we were amazed by the results. We asked for black and gold and boy did she deliver!
Tristan Ginger as always, you have been there for us so much, we cannot thank you enough. Please continue being you!
Our good friend Elliott, who we envisioned to be in this from the start. We keep being inspired to put this wonderful human in future projects and don't know how we're going to stop!
Dayna who did make up for us last minute, on a whim. Thank you!
And Café Velours for allowing us the use of their wonderful space and allowing us to go on with our business while making bystanders stare into the cafe in confusion... *Queer pose super move*

A very difficult decision.
Dear Valued Customers,
It is with a mix of emotions that we write this letter today. Since 2015, we've embarked on an incredible journey with you, and it's been an honor to serve as your destination for dainty panties and intimate apparel for people of all genders. Today, we must announce the difficult decision to close our beloved store, Wicked Mmm.
As much as we cherished this journey, we have come to a point where we must say goodbye. Our other project, TensionMTL, now demands more of our time and attention, and the resources required to sustain both endeavors have become unsustainable. While it was a labor of love and we took great pride in the craftsmanship that went into every piece we created, it also came with the stress and time commitments required to keep Wicked Mmm open. We do not want that love to turn sour, and we believe this is the right decision for us at this time.
We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who supported us along the way. Your trust, your feedback, and your loyalty have been invaluable. We hope that you will continue to embrace your unique selves, explore your desires, and find the confidence to be who you are, wherever life takes you.
While Wicked Mmm may be closing its doors, the spirit of inclusivity, self-expression, and empowerment that it embodied lives on in all of you. Thank you for being a part of our journey and for allowing us to be a part of yours.
If you have a pending order, don't worry, it will be delivered as soon as possible.
With love and gratitude,
Masha & Will
Founders of Wicked Mmm
