Meet the model making waves

When Hedi Slimane books you for your first ever runway show, as happened for model Marjan Jonkman, 22, In February, it's clear meteoric ascent is imminent.

Being one of the most in demand models (she walked 60 shows last season), means it's hard to lay down roots. So Marjan and her housemate in New York, the emerging womenswear designer, [Kimberly Jennesens], have built a 'memory wall' in their apartment, where they can remind each other there is a home to come back to. 'It's basically just a communal wall where we hang pictures and photographs and write each other messages like 'I miss you'.' Here she walks us through the pieces that ground her.
