Erin O’Connor is one of the world’s most famous and versatile supermodels. From the cover of Vogue to the Marks and Spencer campaign, she has made her name in the diverse corners of the fashion world.
In Erin’s Model World, supermodel Erin O'Connor takes us deep into fashionista territory: the frenzy of London Fashion Week where paparazzi flashes threaten your dignity, and where a cool black Masarati can chauffeur you away from the madness.
She revisits the Clothes Show Live exhibition in Birmingham, where she was first discovered.
Since then she has modelled her way to the top, and is now keen to change the industry from within by improving working conditions of models through the establishment of the first ever models’ union.
She is also a panel member of the Model Health Enquiry which addresses concerns about the health of models on the catwalks at London Fashion Week.
Erin’s pet project has been the Model Sanctuary, a bolt-hole for models who can have free massages, nutritional advice and a place to rest during Fashion Week.
Will these small steps to improve the health of models carry over to the wider industry? Erin interviews Alexandra Shulman, Editor of Vogue magazine, about media responsibility and the possibility of long-term change in an industry which attracts equal amounts of bouquets and brick-bats.
