Hannah Matthiesen in Vogue

For today's Major Moment Monday we are going back to December 2011 when Pulse Model Hannah Matthiessen appeared in British Vogue. Alexander McQueen's lead designer Sarah Burton was being featured in a piece and Hannah was cast as the model to appear in the photo alongside the designer.  If you remember, Burton catapulted to stardom after she designed Kate Middleton's wedding dress, while newly at the helm of McQueen.  This Vogue article was a huge moment for both Burton and our model Hannah.

We discovered Hannah in her hometown in Oregon, and her career took off quickly.  One highlight was when she was one of two models selected for a private showing of a designer's line for Anna Wintour (Editor in Chief of Vogue).  I can't even imagine how exciting and nerve-wracking that must have been!

We look back on this Vogue feature and are still so proud to see one of our models in a feature of such a talented and respected designer.
