Q&A with Maya Stepper and Deniz Alaca
If you haven’t met Maya Stepper and Deniz Alaca, the cute dream team behind our latest A/W ‘19 campaign, then it’s advised you stop whatever it is you’re doing and tune in. The talented NYC-based creatives are totally MFEO, as evidenced by that time we asked them to work on our western-inspired campaign together, and they came back with a fun, vibey shoot that’s 100% guaranteed to make you want a pair of cowboy boots to call your own.
This isn’t model Maya’s first rodeo. The mega honey has featured in the much-coveted Victoria’s Secret Swim campaign, and has been shot by countless fashion behemoths like Free People and Reformation. When she’s not slaying in front of the camera, she’s showcasing her enviable, travel-heavy lifestyle to her 600k+ Instagram fans and putting together the effortlessly chic outfits of our dreams. As for Deniz? The photographer first appeared on our radar when we happened upon her colourful Instagram feed, a treasure trove of feel good snaps of some of the coolest women in the biz.
Find out the story behind how they “fell in friendship at first sight”, how they’ll be incorporating the cowboy boots trend into their wardrobes this season, and what makes their (wild) hearts beat a lil’ faster, creatively, below…
