Lumpen is a Moscow-based model agency focusing on unusual faces that don't fit the traditional standards of the fashion industry. The agency's unique approach and catalogue of faces have been a great success, with models booked for brands like Vetements and Comme des Garçons and appearing in publications like i-D and Vogue. Avdotja Alexandrova, the agency's founder, developed her company while studying art in Moscow, inspired in part by the dynamism of the city itself. “It helps that Moscow never sleeps. This isn't Europe where everything closes early and streets are empty in the evening. This city doesn't stand in the way of my job.”
