Artist. Photographer. Storyteller. Icon of Self-Discovery.

Heather Kemesky first hit the runway as a sunny southern California teen, but a series of inspired evolutions led to her coming out on the runway and coming into her own. Ditching the long, blonde locks—but maintaining the easygoing, beachy disposition—Heather tried on her signature shock of black hair and hit the Paris Fashion Week runway for Louis Vuitton and has been walking it ever since.

With her tomboyish look and a beloved pair of Versace combat boots that have travelled the world along with her, Heather carries herself with a confidence that’s undeniably cool and an inner peace that’s practically palpable—whether she’s working for Vuitton, Vogue, or H&M.

From that peace, Heather has found the power of creativity, creating and publishing photo and collaged narrative works made in collaboration with her girlfriend (and fellow Vuitton model) Erika Linder. Celebrating the erotic, the androgynous, and, overall, the human heart, Heather’s images are drawing a new kind of editorial attention as she evolves yet again—this time as an artist and storyteller captivating us from the page in entirely new ways.

Inspired. Inspiring. Visionary.
