Singularity. That's the thing that makes a model vital. And this Gurmit Kaur, was a powerful presence in the very early 90's as model and muse. Born in Singapore but gifted with a classical Indian beauty by her parents, Gurmit Kaur crackled with a kind of exciting elegance that drove legions of fashion perfectionists crazy. Alaia, Versace, Meisel, Steven Klein, Saint Laurent, American Vogue, all buzzed in synch with her kinetic presence. After the modeling madness wound down Gurmit reinvented herself as a distinctly gifted jewelry designer. But she can probably tell her story far better than I ever could.

The month before shows is the most fun for me when editing at MDC. Why? Because I love watching the drama build around the incoming new faces. The flurry of emails flickering back and forth through the industry over Supreme's Rose Cordero right this minute is pretty damn dramatic and deservedly so.
