Around six months before the launch of Elska, I took a trip to Costa Rica to shoot some actual professional models for my portfolio. It was part of a misguided idea that I might like working in fashion… but this day was a highlight. We did our shoot at Punta Leona Beach and followed it with a swim in the ocean and lunch. Probably the only time I ever did a fashion job that didn’t involve people being total c*nts to each other.
We’ve still not done an issue in Latin America, but I guess the closest is Lisbon – check it out https://elska-magazine.myshopify.com/collections/elska-magazine-print
