kitchen of her Manhattan apartment, now that she’s in her forties, with the craziness of youth behind her, she’s never felt better – and it shows. Next we hopped the Atlantic for Paris, where, amid the buzz of a re-enlivened fashion month, we spent several days photographing the stars of today’s runways in their natural habitat, backstage at the shows.
This new generation of one-namers – Adut, Kaia, Paloma et al – have found their way into the hearts of fashion fans by combining extraordinary beauty with unique senses of style and all the relatability of 21st-century digital intimacy. I love how, with these pictures on page 144, stylists Jack Borkett and Gabriella Karefa-Johnson leant into the
reality of the world between shows for the new supers to create a joyful and candid salute to the life of the modern model. Lastly, on page 166, we present the finalists of this year’s BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. Alongside British Fashion Council’s chief executive Caroline Rush and our fellow judges, I spent an energised and enlightening day talking through all of the brilliant fashion talents on the final list and the important and exciting work they are making. After much deliberation, the 2022 winner is Richard Quinn, an extraordinary designer who has spent the past few years honing his vision and exquisite craft, sense of pattern, elevated and esoteric ideas about form and beauty, while never losing sight of his keen flair for the transgressive. He is a fitting winner and an important creative who we look forward to supporting more in the years ahead.
