Here, Ruby wears jacket Stella McCartney. T-shirt Wrangler
Ajak Deng, Livin’ Loud Issue coverstar, describes herself as “smart, beautiful, kind, independent and dedicated.” Her dream? “To make it to the top of the models’ rank on Models.com.” Here, Ajak wears hoodie Uniqlo. Jacket Carhartt.
Wang Xiao, describes herself as “funny, just, strong, virtuous and simple.” In The Dreams and Aspirations Issue Wang tells i-D, “When I came to NYC for the first time, my husband and I walked on Houston Street in Soho, and he pointed to a huge billboard. He said, “believe me your photo will appear on this one day…” At the time I didn’t say anything until one day it really happened. I shot ck with Steven Miesel and they used my image for that billboard.” Dreams can come true! Here, Wang wears t-shirt Uniqlo. Dungarees Chloe.
Kate King, describes herself as “introverted, analytical, independent, pensive and thoughtful.” This fresh-faced, fashion-favourite had a busy SS12 show season but we made sure we grabbed her for a cheeky wink while she dashed about town, have a peek here. Here, Kate wears jacket What Goes Around Comes Around. Shirt Wrangler.
