Guest Book: Ruby Red, Lekk Porter
The photographer of Ruby Red, is a friend of mine. She says she ate her twin in the womb. Lekk grew up in Wellington, NZ but loves being a young adult in Melbourne. She is an intersectional feminist and the fashion industry is not. Lekk feels strongly about the lack of representation of people of colour in the fashion world and isn't a huge fan of using agency represented models, what does 'agency standard' even mean!?! She remembers trying to find a model recently and all the models for one agency here looked identical. She wants to change that. If she was taking you on a first date it'd be at a cosy little bar in North Melbourne called Prudence, where she first fell in love with her current partner.
