“To be included among a group of such exceptional women that I’m lucky enough to call my peers is so humbling. You all inspire me in ways that I can’t describe," said Kaia Gerber as she accepted Model of the Year at the 2018 Fashion Awards last night. The youngest ever recipient of the prestigious award, Kaia fought off fierce competition from Adut Akech, Adwoa Aboah, Bella Hadid and Winnie Harlow. Here, we look back to her i-D debut for our summer issue, as Mario Sorrenti shot her and a handful of other rising New York models.
