Runway moments that defined Kate Moss’ elaborate career

Spanning over 3 decades, Kate Moss is not just one of the most iconic models but also a cultural icon. Here are some of the most memorable moments from her runway career.

John Galliano SS 1995

After being discovered at JFK airport in New York at the young age of 14 years old, Kate Moss has left an indelible mark in the fashion industry that has spanned over 3 decades, since the ’90s. She was just a slender fourteen-year-old girl with an innocent face and an androgynous physique when Sarah Doukas, founder of the Storm fashion agency, discovered her at New York’s JFK airport, launching a stellar career.

The Croydon-born model quickly rose to become one of the most recognisable faces in magazines, scoring contracts with the Calvin Klein, Burberry, Longchamp and YSL. In 1990 Moss caught the attention of the fashion industry when a series of stark unstylized photographs of her—taken by the British photographer Corinne Day—were published in a youth style magazine. At that time the fashion industry was populated by supermodels who were famous for their statuesque and curvaceous frames and traditionally glamorous images.

With a long-list of fashion campaigns and runway shows, natural look, street style, and a slight build—at five feet seven inches—Moss is worldwide known as a “supermodel”, launching a new era in modelling. Let’s revisit the six can’t miss fashion moments where Kate showed the public that she is an ICON on the runway!
