Every season hundreds of models take their shot at New York, London, Milan, and Paris, hoping to make a mark. Only a few really break through, and when they do, they’re often transformed into creatures no one at home in Stockholm or St. Louis would recognize. But here, Jai Odell has captured fashion’s freshest with an eye to letting their individuality shine. From raw to refined, each model’s personality takes center stage. Unselfconscious, unrehearsed, and unedited: this is YOUTH.
