Lindsey Wixson Is Retiring From Modelling and Starting a Career in Interior Design
Über model Lindsey Wixson has announced the sad news of her retirement (due to a foot injury) alongside some good news. The 23-year-old Chanel and Zac Posen muse shared on Instagram that she could no longer continue working in the high-heel industry, but was set to launch her new career in interior design.
To all my fashion fans, I am sad to inform you that my injury has put me in a position to retire from this high heel business. I have an artistic side that wants to shine through. I feel that this disablility has come to me with a purpose. To show me that I must carry on. This industry has brought me so much and I am grateful for the lessons I have learned. Now more than ever I feel it is important to listen to my body and the changing times of this industry and peacefully try to move on. I ask for your support on my new endeavours with designing interiors, pottery, sculpting, carving, and inventing for the future. Please follow @wixsondesign
The first look at Wixson Design reveals an assortment of adorable ceramics (some we assume, made by Lindsey) and the bio, "Lindsey Wixson: Potter, interior curator, fixture designer, furniture designer".
While we'll miss seeing her cheeky gap-toothed smile and dimples in fashion shoots and on the runway, we're excited to see her interiors business boom. We're expecting great things.
