Karen Elson Photographs Her Whirlwind Fashion Month, From New York to Paris


If you paid attention to the Spring 2019 runways, then you know there was a major moment across all four cities beyond new designers at storied houses or bike shorts. The headline here: ’90s supers are dominating the catwalk once again. Case in point: Karen Elson, who this season walked at Marni, Salvatore Ferragamo, Proenza Schouler, and Michael Kors, among others. During her travels, she reunited with old friends like Helena Christensen and Guinevere Van Seenus, hit the town with Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, and even helped Stevie Wonder’s son Kailand Morris make his runway debut. As the month comes to a close, Elson bids adieu and share her exclusive photo diary, here.

Highlight of Milan was to close the Dolce & Gabbana show. I helped this iconic man’s son make his runway debut (that’s Stevie Wonder in the picture).
