Treasure on West 14th

Seventeen year old Norwegian Frida Aasen is one model that I have been on the look out for since my arrival in New York last Friday. Aasen has made a few very select runway appearances most notably for Prada, Loewe and Louis Vuitton at the Spring/Summer 2012 collections and at Fendi, Blumarine and Just Cavalli at the Fall/Winter 2012 collections in February. The industry interest in the doe-eyed luminescent beauty has been fuelled by Aasen's agents at Women Model Management with carefully placed editorial appearances in publications such as Dazed & Confused, V Magazine, Love, Self Service and the preview of Caroline Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book. Aasen's Fall/Winter 2012 DSquared campaign shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott ensures that the newcomer will be on every notable casting director's must see list this season. When I spotted Aasen in the Meat Packing district, I seized the moment and requested the following shot below. It was a delight to meet Aasen whilst scouting the streets of New York, and she turned out to be as sweet and personable as she was beautiful.
