Actress #MounaTraoré – who enjoys writing as a form of self-expression – has returned to working on personal projects of her own. Years ago, she&#039 ;d launched an independent production company "The Mini Films" with a friend to support emerging talent. "I knew so many talented people who I thought needed a platform and an opportunity," Traoré remembers. "With a partner, we decided to create a company where we would try to do something about it." Through The Mini Films, Traoré wrote and produced two short films including 2015&#039 ;s "Adorn." While she&#039 ;s since dissolved the company, she says, "It gave me the experience and the understanding of what I want to do on a bigger level for the next stage of my journey as a creator." "It feels important to go back to my work as a filmmaker and a writer and to redefine what the next steps are," Traoré says. "I&#039 ;ve been so focused on one part of my career and I think now more than ever, I&#039 ;m feeling like I need to do more on the other side of the camera." Read more at TheRetaility.com.

“Malick Sidibé is a Malian photographer who is quite famous; this is a book that has ties to part of my culture,” actress @_mounatraore explains. “I love Deana Lawson’s work. I love Noah Davis&#039 ;s work. I’ve seen their work in galleries and exhibitions. There is a beautiful picture of one of Deana Lawson’s prints in this book. I’ve been trying to get my hands on a copy of that.” See more at TheRetaility.com. Photos by @birds_eye_photo . Words by @lindzischarf .

Designer @rachelpally ’s husband Kevin Circosta is also in the fashion business. As the founder of @freeandeasy , Circosta’s brand has a slew of stylish fans including #LeBronJames , @hshq , and @johnmayer . While the duo’s clothing companies and their demographics couldn’t be further from one another, the brands complement each other as perfectly as the couple itself. While Pally’s label is focused on the easygoing Cali girl who “just woke up this way,” Free & Easy’s pieces are a nod to the state’s surf, skate, and sports culture. In short, it’s easy to envision the Pally customer dating a Free & Easy dude – mainly because both brands are organic extensions of their founders and share a relaxed, quintessential California ease. Circosta says he&#039 ;s only scratched the surface of what he hopes to accomplish with Free & Easy. “I feel like I&#039 ;ve cracked open a little world for myself, but by no means am I anywhere near getting through that,” he says. “I can&#039 ;t wait to see where it goes from here.” Fun fact: The couple met in pre-school and their L.A. love story is the stuff romantic comedies and meet-cutes are made of.

Designer @rachelpally has found it helps to have hobbies outside of her business and enjoys creating pottery. “It [is] nice to make something that isn’t for my job and that doesn&#039 ;t have to be monetized,” she says. “Getting out of your head and making things where it doesn&#039 ;t matter if it&#039 ;s great, it just can be an experiment [is] so healthy.” Read more at TheRetaility.com.
