Welcome everyone to my second Icon of the Week issue. I chose Kate Moss because I am not only such a huge fan but find her to be such a unique and powerful force in the fashion industry, from her modeling career to her great style and to becoming a successful businesswoman. I hope you enjoy this and the many more to come...♥️




Katherine Ann Moss was born on January 16th, 1974 in Croydon, England.


















In 1988, Moss was discovered at age 14 by founder of Storm Management (modeling agency), Sarah Doukas, at JFK Airport.


Kate was signed with Storm soon after meeting Doukas.

















The fashion industry started to take notice of Kate after she was photographed by Corrine Day for The Face magazine in 1990.


After this project, her career started to take off...






A couple years later, the 5'7" model signed a contract with Calvin Klein and would cover numerous campaigns with them throughout her career.





Kate Moss made her runway debut at the Spring 1992 Dolce & Gabbana show.











Moss scored her first Vogue cover in 1993. It was for the March issue of British Vogue, photographed by Corrine Day.




















During the 90's, Kate walked for many top labels including Chanel, Versace, Prada, Calvin Klein, YSL, Isaac Mizrahi, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Anna Sui, Gucci, Dior and more.
