Abby Champion • Self Service Nº59 Fall Winter 2023
“Nourished by an in-depth knowledge of our industry's past, present, and future, creatives and journalists alike must continue to fight for and maintain their safe space for opinions and their well-informed critical eye,” writes Ezra Petronio in his editor’s letter to the latest edition of Self Service. “Any other way would be absurd!” Enter Abby Champion, star of a 17-page editorial by photographer Liv Liberg and stylist Eliza Conlon. Ironic captions aside, there is nothing inflated or self-congratulatory about the story. Wearing a Coperni top and Givenchy skirt (featured), Abby is worthy of her wowing headline. In a moment when the world’s information is being digested and spat back by machine intelligence at a dizzying rate, appeals to the sanctity of wetware (the human brain) can seem quaint. Still, there is something to be admired about a model with life in her eyes. Wowowow!
