February isn’t over yet, is it? It’s been a whirlwind of fashion since my return to New York City at the start of February, thanks to fashion week and market, where designers show their collections to buyers. I’ve been meaning to share my latest spread from Harpers Bazaar, shot in Istanbul, and have finally had a moment to sit down and do so. I had an incredible month in Turkey and this editorial showcases all of the talented people I had the opportunity to meet and work with. I was fortunate enough to book the gig through my incredible agency, Option Management Istanbul, alongside fellow model and wonderful friend, Ania Dajczer. I met this lovely lady in the agency on the first day of her arrival, when our booker told us we would be shooting the 10 page spread together. By the time the day for shooting came a week later, we were already steadfast friends, which made the shoot all the more enjoyable. The photos are by the excellent photographer Erdi Dogan and our awesome Spring looks, fresh from the runway, were styled by Mert Aslan. I had the pleasure of working with the hair stylist, Yildirim Bozuyuk, on another shoot during my stay, and I truly appreciated his dedication to his craft. It was an honor to witness his skills with hair as an art form, especially when he gave me a hair cut on set! Makeup was done by the sweet and talented Elif Girgin with styling assistance by Cansu Aketmur and hair assistance by Yunus Dever. I hope you enjoy the spread as much as we enjoyed working together to create it!
