Episode 3, LOVE Meets... @ariel.nicholson. “Fashion isn’t just pictures anymore. It isn’t just about the clothes, it’s about the story,” says 17-year-old Ariel Nicholson Murtagh. Link to full interview in bio.
Episode 2, LOVE Meets... @hunterschafer. “The model that I most look up to? Probably Munroe Bergdorf. She’s just such an amazing example of what speaking your truth, and living your truth, can be.” After walking for @marcjacobs, @babbym and @miumiu, Hunter Schafer has had a phenomenal season. We spoke to Hunter about what it’s been like for her growing up LGBTQ and her highlight of AW18. Link to full interview in bio.

In the first episode of ‘LOVE Meets...’, @paul_flynn speaks to @massima._ about her experience growing up as part of the LGBT+ community, and her training in the Japanese performance art, Butoh.
“I really feel that I am growing up in a world that's different than my parent’s. The interconnectedness is really different, particularly in terms of queerness. You know, my sister is 13, but has an understanding of language around gender and sexuality that was unimaginable to me, as someone who’s in my 20’s, and something that was completely alien to my parents. You know, it’s really, really wild." Link to full interview in bio.
@aubejolicoeur by @alasdairmclellan and @kegrand for #love19. “I was in a period of my life when I didn’t give up on modelling but I kind of went, I’m not going to be a supermodel – whatever. For a while I was depressed. I was like, ‘What am I going to do with my life?’ But modelling is the only thing that I love, so I still had hope and faith that something would happen.” And happen it did, with the model walking Miu Miu, Giambattista Valli and Hermès this season, to name a few.

@ellefanning, who recently made her catwalk debut at @miumiu, by @alasdairmclellan and @kegrand for #love19. “I think when most people think of me, they think about the big ball gowns and the puffy princess dresses, and I love dressing up in that way but right now, for example, I’m wearing chain chokers and a pair of pants that are totally ripped at the bottom. And I think I go towards that look more, personally. There is no dressing like a man or a woman now; the sex doesn’t matter so much. I like being undefined. I don’t want to be just one thing. I am OK with chipped nail polish and smudgy makeup, you know?” Make up @diane.kendal
@adesuwa and @stuckinteenage for #love19, by @lynettegarland and @kegrand. “Modelling isn’t my main goal. It isn’t the big picture. But I started taking modelling seriously because I saw where people could go with it. I’ve seen so many girls do cool shit. Most of what I care about is Africa-based. It’s where I grew up and I have so many attachments to home and there are so many things that need to be done. It’s like you’re in the club but you know that your kid needs to eat, so you’ve got to go home and feed your goddamn kid! That’s the worst analogy ever made in the world – but it’s the truth,” says Adesuwa, who was on course to becoming a doctor before modelling, and is now in the midst of writing a children’s book.

Hubert de Givenchy and his dog in 1955, by François Pages.
The French designer has passed away at the age of 91, leaving behind a flourishing fashion house which Givenchy set up in 1955. Although he is gone, his legacy will never be forgotten, with his clothing acting as an infinite reminder of his skilful intricacy. It is undeniable that Givenchy’s close friend, Audrey Hepburn, played a massive part in the designer’s success. After creating her costumes for ‘Sabrina’, ‘Funny Face’ and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’, Givenchy’s memory will always live on through film. A loyal friend and talented couturier, there will never be another like Hubert de Givenchy.
#kesewaaboah by @carinbackoffphoto and @stevemorriss01 for #love19. “When we were on holidays and stuff like that obviously there were fashion people around, but I didn’t really realise that for ages. It’s an amazing influence. It’s uncommon and a real privilege to be surrounded by people at such a high level of what they do, who love what they do. It made me want to be good at something and put in the work to be excellent at it.” Make up @lisahoughton
