    This is a very nice looking site, but I will echo that it feels more like a personal/photography/modeling site.

    The work is almost down at the bottom, which seems strange to me.

      I agree with you Jimmy. I feel it highlights a modelling career rather than a designers background.

      When someone or something doesn't meet our expectations of what they should look, feel, or act like, sometimes it's a fault on their side; and sometimes it's a sign that we should reconsider our expectations.

        This is the most sensible comment in this entire thread.

        Yeah that's probably true. It also is kinda silly that this site, which is ultimately hers to do whatever the hell she wants, warrants this much criticism. Mine included.

        I think in a lot of creative industries, there is this sentiment of "It should be about the work or it's bullshit" thing going on, and I too often fall into this camp. It's your life and your decisions to do as you please, as long as they aren't harmful to others. Too often we police each others behavior to make sure it falls within the status quo.
