About D&M + KidsCan
A guide for collectors, creatives and philanthropists.
D&M Collection Images
D&M's photographic collection work is famed for being strikingly provocative, fashion-forward and utterly beautiful. The heroine created is always powerful, in charge of her sensuality and in command of her world.
The first collection era, from D&M's launch in 2007 through to 2012, was breathtakingly captured by the late Craig Owen. The incredible Mara Sommer has photographed each collection since his passing.
These evocative works have garnered the salon local and international acclaim, gracing magazine covers, generating online hype and winning D&M multiple awards.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of D&M, directors Danny Pato and Michael Sisaengrath have selected their favourite 30 images from the collection archive.

Not all kids have the same start in life. Children who miss out on the basics get sick more often, under perform at school and when they become adults are more likely to remain unemployed and have children who will also grow up in hardship.
The KidsCan Charitable Trust was founded on the belief that education equals opportunity, and every child, regardless of their social economic background, should have an equal chance.
Today KidsCan supports the education of over 137,000 children in 600 low decile schools throughout New Zealand, providing food, shoes, socks, fleece-lined raincoats and basic hygiene items. Its tangible programmes ensure disadvantaged children can get to and through the schools’ gates in a better position to learn.
KidsCan currently has 17 schools on their waiting list – that’s 1,490 kids waiting for support right now.
