BYE before the HELLO

Caruso

Let’s toast to another publication- with the help of my good friends at Tomimito, I’ve been able to participate in a myriad of interesting events and projects- it’s easy to model when I have a willing photographer and established connections through the Tomimito family. I’ve waved the semi-long hair BYE and soon enough I’ll find…

Vacarrello X Versus Spring 2015 Collection Afterparty

NYFW S/S 2015: VACCARELLOxVERSUS AfterParty

Ms. Hudson, nice to meet you. She makes a lovely duet with this Versace party scene. Do I even have to mention these names? Followed “Chapter” on Insta and Marcel is one of their guys. People love the drop-crotch pants I bought on the site. Super fond of the electro-harmony with Feist-like rhythm and gorgeous…

Her Oak Tree

Life is part hair and part clothes. There needs to be other elements mixed in as well. Other elements that physically compliment my look are muscles and a lean mean green T. Life can put you in a corner. But just turn around and scowl. And if scowling doesn’t work, be charming. Green & Blue…

Long Strides into Darkness

IMG_0346

I lost these shoes darnit, I lost these shoes. Back in LA, I used to catalogue for Revolve Clothing. I applied my model code: “revolve—–sejin” and purchased these shoes. I was a Revolve Man. One way to be successful in NY is to walk with long strides. I am my hero in 10 years. Verizon…

Work at it

20140414_sejin37131_2

It’s good to be back- this post and the several following won’t align what I’ve done previously, but that’s because Hee Hyun is away in Korea for the summer. Let me update you: It’s been five months and I’ve yet to pick up an agency in NY- I’m also no longer with Wilhelmina LA –…

Bedroom & Balcony

New York is known for their universally small bedrooms, but their perimeters extend to its vacant balconies. It’s awkward at first to take a friend photographer and expose her to shooting me in my underwear, but my portfolio needs a paradigm shift – more NY, less LA. This shirt’s collar is a bit flat and…

Model’s Midterms

SEjin-17 copy

My new haircut and I decided to take Muji to Columbia and show her the campus. She asked me if I had midterms. I responded, “That’s why I brought you here”. “MUJI – in its deliberate pursuit of the pure and the ordinary – achieves the extraordinary.” For these looks, I coupled Muji’s Polos with…

The Urban Outfitter

SEjin-4 copy

From the changing room to the flagship retail floor, I became the Urban Outfitter. Shoppers were spectating. “Urban Outfitters creates their look books with models in-stores.” Every discovery is “Brilliant!” – the two then clink their Guinness beers. From books to bags to a comfy spring outfit, I’m acing my modeling midterms. Finding a girl’s…

Denim on the Top

2-17 copy

Give me a jean jacket and a guitar. I’ll wear the first comfortably and play the second naively. I once went in for a commercial audition as a musician- had the look w/o the confidence. Next time, I’ll be prepared. By the way, 5 seconds after this shot, a bird splattered his grungy matter onto…
