Amy McCabe’s August Editor’s Letter: Alexis Ren
Celebration is at the heart of Modeliste Magazine: of the women we admire, the fashion we love, the art and literature that inspire us. I truly believe a cover should encapsulate a message of hope and go above and beyond just a pretty image. This is exactly what we tried to achieve when we invited Alexis Ren to be our August cover star. For a start, Alexis, while having been on hundreds of previous photoshoots and campaigns, compiled her own mood board for our cover shoot. She wanted this Cover to be unique, something she hadn’t ever done before, and reflective of who she is in the present moment.
What is particularly meaningful to me is the transformative social impact Alexis has had in fashion and in society in general and how she has also rapidly become an advocate for younger generations.
I’m so grateful to Alexis for sharing the experience of her transformative past year. As she embarks on a new chapter in her career, Alexis is not only a remarkable model, performer and social-media titan, but an icon of positivity and inclusiveness for her millions of young followers.
Welcome to the issue.
