Though she’s a mere 19 years old, Aiden Curtiss’s runway résumé runs the gamut from luxury heavy hitters like Bottega Veneta and Fendi to cool streetwear shows from Fenty, Off-White, and Public School. As you might guess from her towering six-foot frame, she has a fashion pedigree: Curtiss is the daughter of the late model Katoucha Niane and the designer Nigel Curtiss. When not modeling, Curtiss somehow manages to find the time to produce dubstep — she records under the name Lumacid. Read on for her lightning-round answers to our interview.
