>> In this Madeline Kragh-centric episode of Model.Live, it's post-Fashion Week, and she's caught up in the mad cycle many models fall into: that of not being able to afford living in New York unless she's booking well-paying jobs, but not being able to book those good jobs unless she's based in New York.
For the time, she's back in New York with her boyfriend Jimmy, sleeping on couch cushions instead of a mattress and going into debt every week to her agency, IMG, who takes out money against her for housing, living costs, plane tickets, and even clothes for her to wear to go-sees. But hey, at least she's making money: she's earned more in two days during campaign season than she did in all six weeks of runway shows — and she's apparently booked a campaign with a French designer that she "loooooves." Madeline may be already dreading next Fashion Week, but she seems happy in the meantime — will Austria Alcantara be in the same high spirits post-Fashion Week? Next week we'll see.
