Paloma Elsesser for the rag & bone D.I.Y. Project
The DIY Project, originally created in Spring 2011 and now reintroduced for Spring 2018, flips the traditional photo shoot on its head. An ongoing creative initiative, for which each subject is given a camera, a bag of clothes – all with the same remit – to interpret rag & bone in their own way. “The DIY Project was designed to focus on individuality and authenticity, two elements that have always been at the core of rag & bone. It’s awesome to see such a fascinating group of people translate personal style in their own way,” PALOMA ELSESSER Writer turned model and social media phenomenon Paloma Elsesser got her big break when she was hand-selected as the face of beauty icon Pat McGrath’s namesake cosmetics line.

Select editorial credits include Elle, i-D, CR Fashion Book, and Glamour, as well as multiple appearances in Vogue's online and print issues.
