SUPER6 – Cindy, Linda, Christy, Naomi, Claudia, Kate.
An homage to the ultimate supermodels of the 90s, THE FAN’s sophomore collection ‘SUPER6’ celebrates a sisterhood that broke barriers beyond the pages of the fashion press.
The Amazonian women exceeded the runway to dominate media outlets, beauty lines and popular culture – from music videos to movie roles and Pepsi commercials, blurring the lines between fashion model and businesswoman. Harnessing their power and reach, the SUPER6 transcended race and created a new platform to speak out on world issues. They oozed with a power and beauty that could not be ignored and became cultural icons in their own right. Over thirty years on and they have still captured our imagination.
SUPER6 honours the ushering in of the new woman of the last decade of the 20th century, embodied by the supermodel: Strong, powerful, beautiful and with the will to use femininity to form female bonds and break with convention.
Created by London based designer Elle Azhdari and fashion stylist Cristina Aranda-Garzon, THE FAN is a high-end inspired sportswear label driven by our reverence for popular culture and personal collections, from past to the present.
“Our passion with photography, film and music started when we were kids. We lived in different parts of the world but obsessed over the same things, we were true fans back then and still are. We both grew up with generational pop culture game-changers like MTV and Smash Hits/The Face/i-D magazine, and have been collectors for years, amassing an extensive archive reflective of our icons. We decided to create unique statement pieces inspired by our personal collections, and THE FAN brand was born. These icons shaped the world as much as they shaped our ideas and experiences.”
THE FAN will release a new concept 3 times a year of limited edition styles that will never be restocked or repeated. THE FAN is at once both a nostalgic nod to influential giants and a new, bold statement that hasn’t been made yet.
