Georgia May Jagger Designs For Hudson Jeans, Is Moving to Manhattan

>> Georgia May Jagger has been starring in Hudson Jeans ad campaigns for the past year, and now, the model is set to debut her first-ever designing endeavor for the brand: a 20-piece denim collection priced from $180 to $350. "I’m really surprised that so early in my career they allowed me to do this dream, design my own stuff," May Jagger told WWD. "The Hudson people approached me about doing the line. They asked me to get my inspirations together. I got a bunch of pictures and vintage jeans of my mom’s, and I did some sketches — I do art, so they weren’t that bad, but they weren’t amazing [laughs]. I wrote a lot of details and notes on them. My jeans are a totally different cut than the usual Hudson jeans. It’s a stretch denim and a higher cut on the hip, which I like because I’m a bit shorter, so I like that elongated leg thing."

Jagger also conveyed that she is moving to New York City this Fall to attend the School of Visual Arts, where she will be studying photography, art, and life drawing. "I always said when I finished school I wanted to move from London for a change of scenery," said May Jagger, who noted that she will be living with her sister Lizzie Jagger. "The art schools in New York are really great and I like the whole atmosphere there. In London, everyone goes home at 6 o’clock and all the shops close. I like how in New York people are always doing stuff." So does photography as the new course of study mean her modeling is a thing of the past? "I’d like to do both. My sister calls it 'modelgraphing.' But school is my main focus now. I never put modeling in front of my education."
