Jeny Howorth

By  | 

Art student and model Jeny Howorth is an intriguing character within the fashion industry. While her mother Georgia became one of the iconic models of the 1980s, Jeny has taken an indirect route into modeling herself; currently balancing schoolwork with select appearances (such as modelling for Giles Deacon or guest editing Self Service alongside fellow DNA girl Jane How). Jeny now boasts some of the coolest clients around!

Her collage works evoke a similar nostalgic feeling as found at art gallery exhibitions or Facebook newsfeeds, harking back to when young people would read magazines, tear out pictures and paste them onto bedroom walls; an activity which brought communities closer together much like social media does today.

Jeny became a favorite among i-D and Elle readers during the eighties due to her grandmotherly peroxide blonde crop and charming demeanor, immortalized by George Michael in one of his music videos and cut for cover of September 1993 issue of i-D magazine by session stylist Sam McKnight who cut a signature look for Jeny on its cover.

Jeny still models on occasion and her performance at Simone Rocha’s Milan show was proof. When she appeared alongside Chloe Sevigny and Jade Parfitt on the catwalk, it felt natural – evidence of why so many clients remain loyal.
