I first met Ella at New Zealand Fashion Week last year, so I was surprised when she told me she’s still in high school – she has such a definitive style for someone of just seventeen! Ella makes a lot of her own clothes, including the shredded top which you can just see through her legs. There are few street style photos which look best in black and white, but this is one of them. I think because the day was particularly gloomy and Ella is wearing dark colours, removing the colour doesn’t change the true essence of the image.
