Good Morning Brainiacs!
Happy first day of the week and most importantly: Happy Model Monday! This week features Issa Lish, 21-year-old veteran who was discovered at her father's sushi restaurant when she was 14 years old.
There's no doubt you've seen Issa before, whether on one of the dozens of runways she's pranced down or on the cover of a magazine, her face is unmistakeable.
Issa is of Japanese and Mexican descent and was raised in Mexico City. She's been on the cover of three Vogues (Mexico, Italia, and Japan) and has been featured in countless editorials worldwide. She's also a favorite among the big names: Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, DKNY, Vera Wang, and Givenchy to name a few.
She's a rare combination of ethnicity, which serves to give her a unique and striking look.
Her sleek, midnight Japanese hair and vaguely Latina facial features serve her well, leaving any audience waiting to see what she'll do or say. She often seems on the brink of speech, but we're never quite in on it.
What are your thoughts on Issa? Leave a comment weighing in and have an amazing week!
