Rila Fukushima from Trump Model Management





Trump Model Management's Rila Fukushima as randomly encountered with her current boyfriend Konrad Junikiewicz on Crosby Street.  Besides having starred in a past D&G campaign, Rila has also opened a clothing store and been in a music video.

I know it may appear obvious to some, but the more I get to "shoot" models on the street, the more distinguished each girl's energy becomes from the next.  I guess it's like fine wine.  The more you drink it, the more seasoned you become at distinguishing the subtle differences between each variant.  It's like I have a catalog going on inside my head of the girls I've had the opportunity to make totally random photographs with.

Rila looks great. They make a really cute couple too. Her boyfriend is really androgynous.

Konrad's a friend of mine, and I've met Rila a few times as well. Konrad's hilarious, by the way.
These shots definitely capture their energy and style!
