With her laid back vibe and elegantly edgy looks Kel Markey (Supreme Management) has become the posterchild for fashion’s current cool. As one of the most wanted catwalkers of last season (59 shows walked, all of them quality) and a current editorial star with impressive turns in Vogue China, Numero, i-D, Dazed and just about every other innovative publication on the market, Kel most certainly qualifies for girl of the moment status. We caught up with the fabulous Miss Markey to talk style, trends and her favorite show of S/S13.


Florida girl Kel first appeared on the scene -and on MDC back in 2010 sporting Rapunzel locks and an innately cool vibe.
