R.I.P. Daul Kim
I remember reading her blog avidly. She was a really special person and kindof reminded me of myself. Here is a film she just created with Richard Nicoll. Surrealist and beautiful.
"Korean model Daul Kim, 20, was found dead in Paris this morning, NY Mag's The Cut reports. Her cause of death has not yet been confirmed, but sources told the magazine she had committed suicide.
Kim was a favorite among fashion followers for her gorgeous editorials (in i-D, Dazed & Confused, and British, Korean, and Japanese Vogue, among others) and witty, honest interviews. She maintained a blog, I Like to Fork Myself, for over two years, in which she shared her favorite videos, pictures, and insights about the modeling industry. She also posted pictures of the self-described "kitschy" paintings she loved to create.
Daul's modeling agents at Next issued a statement: "She was a top model and a great friend to all of us at Next. Please respect her family’s privacy at this time of sadness. We will all miss her very much." "[ Zimbio ]
