How I got here: Aaron Rose Philip on the way forward in the modeling industry


In How I got here Black and brown creatives explore how they made their way to the top of the fashion industry. In conversation with Vogue, these editors, models, social media stars and many more reveal the unforgettable moment that would completely change their careers. How i got here offers (elegant) life lessons, in the artists’ own words.

First of all, we spoke with Aaron Rose Philippe. She made a name for herself as a Gen Z force in the modeling industry, hitting the catwalks for Moschino and Collina Strada, as well as the cover of V and Paper magazine. Her portfolio is a showcase of what fearlessness and perseverance in fashion can look like. In an industry that has historically excluded trans and disabled people, Philip is leading the way. Here she tells Vogue about how the busiest year of her life brought her to the forefront of the modeling world.

This year has probably been the craziest time of my life (in the best way). When I really started to focus on the things I love, people started to really see me for myself.

It was January of this year, and I really had no idea what was going to happen to me. I ended up doing six digital and print magazine covers. That was the turning point, after that it all started to happen, and it blew me away. February fashion week was more active for the first time since the start of the pandemic. I worked with Collina Strada and it was a great moment for me. All of a sudden, I was getting these big requests. The pandemic was still having full effect but things were still moving in the fashion world.
