<p>YouTube Video</p> Michael Whittaker was profiled by Close Up tonight, in a piece that followed him around New York Fashion Week; at home with his family; and on set at a Little Brother lookbook shoot.

Michael shot this campaign back at the beginning of the year – I think it might have been his first proper job after he arrived inClick to Continue!
All Images /The Fashionisto These pictures from backstage at the Nice Collective show last season in New York just showed up on The Fashionisto. They reminded me that I should probably do a Michael Whittaker tribute post now that he’s up and left the country. I received a call from Michael two days ago telling me he was leaving the next day for New York. He came and visited me that night then sure enough, he flew out yesterday.
