We pride ourselves on recognizing, appreciating, and utilizing the quirky things that make our models stand out in a market where the simply “pretty” girls get lost in the shuffle. In this recent NY TIMES article, “For Fashion Models, Quirk is In” the quirky girl is the one to beat by current industry standards according to some pretty legit players: top designers, scouts, casting directors, and the like.
The quirky girl is kind of our bag, and to see that 3 of our girls are mentioned in this article just sort of puts some proverbial hot pink icing on our cake. To Chloe Norgaard, Avery Tharp, and Kelly Mittendorf…you GO girls. We love you for doing you…It’s clearly working like CRAZY in your favor. -M-
HeYo!!! Welcome back, Kiddos!
Vol.2 of LOOK.BOOK.LOVE features the latest collection by Los Angeles based brand, UNIF, comprised of disgustingly cute couple Eric Espinoza + Christine Lai. They do neo-90’s grunge like no other, and the angsty youth brigade is ravenously eating up every morsel of their throwback tributes to the things we hold so dear. They also have zero qualms about dropping knowledge by bringing in super obscure references like American punk rock monster, GG Allin (If you don’t know, now you know. Google him. He’s insaaaane). Their designs are blaringly loud and almost painfully colorful, but, I mean, we all like a little pain now and again. Either way, they’re not afraid to make shit that makes them happy, and in turn their throngs of avid followers are happy too.
So, without further ado, here is WET HOT AMERICAN BUMMER….UNIF SPRING 2013 featuring our gap-toothed beauty, Avery Tharp.
