Alex Consani, Nyajuok Gatdet, North West, and Sasha Colby were all strategically selected by Scheinman to be cover stars. Before walking for Tom Ford in 2021, model Alex Consani got her break as a social media personality while catering to a niche audience. Nyajuok Gatdet was a special addition to Sabato De Sarno’s debut Gucci show, a move motivated by De Sarno’s desire to empower a young model with the transformative opportunity to represent a prestigious brand like Gucci. “I wanted to give the opportunity to a young girl to be a model for a big name like Gucci,” De Sarno says. “It could change their life.” While North West isn’t a newcomer to the spotlight, she is surely making her way into the world of fashion. Her carefree personality and unique taste reflects brilliantly in her i-D interview. Last but not least, Sasha Colby is an American drag performer most recently known for being crowned winner of season 15 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The New Wave Issue not only celebrates emerging talents but also reflects a forward-thinking approach, appealing to the evolving tastes and aspirations of a new generation of fashion enthusiasts.
