Comme des Garcons F/W 2014, Paris Fashion Week
Despite the common belief, being an alternative model isn’t about the tattoos and piercings. It’s about defying the norm and seeking beauty outside the lines. It’s about experimenting with colors and playing in new worlds. I have no major modifications, but I do it because it’s fun. I do it because everyone involved from the concept’s conception to the viewers reaction, is fucking fun.
I wrote this well over a year ago. I amaze myself sometimes.
My modeling adventure has been quite the journey, and I’m still so young. I don’t shoot nearly as much as I’d like to anymore, and I admit there’s days I want to quit entirely.
But I know in my heart it’s only just begun. I’ve got two years under my belt, and the age of retirement for a fashion model is still far away. I will slowly but surely continue what I’ve started. Alternative, fashion, nude, or otherwise.
