NEW YORK — There are few better times to be in Gotham than when spring takes hold. There is a vibrancy that can be felt in the streets, which has not been case for many wintry months. With this change in weather has also come the arrival of Abby Champion, which in many ways transforms this spring bloom into a bouquet. Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, Abby got her start modeling in Los Angeles and has also spent time in Miami, but throughout it all has always had her sights set on New York. “There are a lot of companies here that I have dreamed of working for and the way to work with them is by being here,” says Abby. Since arriving, Abby has had little difficulty adopting local customs that include lots of walking and of course wearing all black. On the afternoon of her interview, Abby cut a classic New York figure wearing black denim, black T-shirt, and fresh pair of Dr. Martens, which further emphasized her natural beauty. Welcome to New York, Abby, this season is yours to shine.
