MYNE Catalog Leaked

November 2nd, 2019, FY33

In an unprecedented moment of corporate espionage, fashion giant MYNE has experienced a leak of their upcoming line. The leaked images, shown below, seem to have come directly from the pen of MYNE creative director and corporate board chairman Yiu Amistacia. Speculation continues as to the source of these leaked images, as they appear to be watermarked for internal use only. Increased tensions between Spai Computing CEO Richard Spai and Chairman Amistacia have led to public accusations of corporate espionage and a complete hold on all Spai Computing assets until an internal investigation has been completed. When reached out to for comment Spai denied any responsibility, and simply stated that, "Spai Computing maintains it's position on the corporate board and will help determine the source of these leaks as best we can."

These leaks, appearing across the internet on Sunday, have been met with widespread excitement. The creative director hasn't publicly released new projects for over two months, citing increased workload and a shift back to modeling since their appointment as chairman. When asked for comment regarding the leaks, Yiu confirmed that these are authentic, but were older concepts that had been revised or left out of past collections. The designs, rendered primarily in black and white, share similarities with last year's spring/summer lines, featuring sheer fabric or clear plastic.

The source of the leaks directly contradicts this claim, asserting that the sketches have progressed past the internal prototyping phase, and are in fact slated for release during the upcoming fall/winter fashion week. It is currently unknown whether the source is an outside actor, or acting on behalf of a current corporate board member. All other members have denied claims of responsibility, and have begun an internal investigation on how a secure government server could have been breached without a member of the Galahindan Security Agency knowing.

    DAUFA and Klynne Security Forces Clash

May 12th, 2021, FY 35

Today, outrage among the corporate board after reports of a live-fire incident between DAUFA and Klynne Security Group contractors stationed in the urban core. At roughly 11:42 GST on 5/12/2021 (FY35),  a confrontation between DAUFA and KSC forces assigned to two adjacent buildings began. It is unclear what sparked the incident, but eyewitnesses say what started as a simple argument quickly escalated, with verbal insults leading to two soldiers who have yet to be identified approaching each other. After a brief altercation, the KSC contractor is said to have stepped back, drawn his service weapon, and fired three rounds at the DAUFA soldier. DAUFA forces stationed on-site immediately returned fire. CCTV footage obtained by Cascadia Current supports this version of events. After a firefight that lasted roughly 120 seconds, both parties began retreating, leaving one DAUFA soldier dead and another in critical condition, as well as the instigating KSC contractor critically injured and two more with minor injuries. No civilian deaths or injuries have been reported. 

As of writing no official response from either Spencer Klynne, head of Klynne Security Group, or Yiu Amistacia, founder of DAUFA, has been made.

As forces clashed, civilians within the area immediately fled the scene, leaving behind personal belongings and several articles of clothing, which are currently being held at GPD precinct 21. Any lost items can be retrieved once an accurate verbal description of the item is provided.

    Exciting news for Galahinda's transgender population today, as MYNE creative director Yiu Amistacia announces a collaboration between Neurve Pharmecutials. The collaboration seeks to provide funds for those seeking gender affirming healthcare to cover most if not all of the costs of the procedures needed. Yiu Amistacia, speaking via FIYD live stream announced the new program, stating, "Galahinda's trans population should not have to worry about paying for services that should be free to begin with. With all the value pioneering trans people have provided to our culture, it's time we give them something back yeah?" 
    In order to further promote the project, MYNE has begun a campaign of trans inclusive lingerie, with all proceeds going back to the program. The new line, titled SKNN, featured solely trans models within the promotional materials, including Creative Director Yiu Amistacia. The program will begin providing funds at the end of the month.
