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.

"I believe in maniacs. I believe in type As. I believe that you’ve got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do. I believe you must betray your mistress for your work, you betray your wife for your work; I believe that she must betray you for her work. I believe that work is the one thing in the world that never betrays you, that lasts. If I were going to be a politician, if I were going to be a scientist, I would do it every day. I wouldn’t wait for Monday. I don’t believe in weekends.
If you’re headed for a life that’s only involved with making money and that you hope for satisfaction somewhere else, you’re headed for a lot of trouble. And whatever replaces vodka when you’re 45 is what you’re going to be doing."
- Richard Avedon - 1988
