Nine months is all Sojourner Morrell
needed to make a dent in the industry. The New Jersey native kick-started her career after landing a spot in Prada's 2012 resort presentation, followed by a solo spread in British Vogue
's August 2011 issue, which then resulted in spring 2012 runway slots at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and even Tom Ford. Now in her sophomore season, the established equestrian (she was the first woman accepted to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, mind you) walked the couture runway for Chanel, nabbed Jil Sander Navy's spring campaign, and appeared in editorials for Interview
, Dazed & Confused
magazine — and is currently on the cover of Italian Vogue
. The laid-back Morrell stopped by our offices last week to talk politics, prom, and which fashion show has the best backstage food.
