WWD: At 27, you’re older than some girls who are just starting out in the industry. Do you find that to be an asset or a hindrance?
D.M.: I think my age is an asset for now. I think a lot of people like [grown] women now. I hear a lot of photographers say it, too. As a photographer myself, I don’t shoot girls who are 15. But I think that it really depends on the look you’re going for as well. Back [when I started], when 15-year-old girls were a hype, everything [in fashion] was very doll-like, and now it’s going back to that sexy, mature woman, Cindy Crawford-type of thing.
