Model Casey Legler's Fashion Week Diary, Part III

By Casey Legler
We've been avidly following artist/model Casey Legler's career ever since we read about how she was signed by Ford to exclusively model in their men's division after her friend, PAPER contributor and photographer Cass Bird, asked her to model menswear for a shoot and later showed the modeling agency her photos. Legler recently booked a campaign for AllSaints and, full steam ahead, is embarking on her first fashion week. She'll be sharing her experiences with PAPER over the coming days and, as you'll soon notice, modeling is only one of her many interests. Equally influenced by art, music and her creative friends, Legler tells us that her experiences as a model cannot be separated from her experiences in those other creative fields. Take a look at her final diary entry, which includes a Valentine-y breakfast, walking in her first NYFW show and winding down at Westgay. Read on.
7 a.m.: I'm eating a crepe with nutella for breakfast this morning. It's from a craft and crepe party we had yesterday hosted by the one and only Ms. Lauren Shields. I'm serious. We made valentines. Take that Fashion Week.

9 a.m.: Picked up the 4 x 6 foot print I've been working on from Duggal's (these guys are major). It's named after Manet's Olympia (obviously) and for Susan Sontag and Barthes's Camera Lucida. I finished it on the heels of shooting with Inez + Vinoodh [Inez Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin] and working with the exquisite Mr. Galloway. I can't help but think that there's a little bit of them in here as well.
