Kristen Athena is who I like to call the “Karlie Kloss of Philadelphia.” This woman is in most of the fashion social media campaigns to come out of Philly. When not dominating the PA model scene, Athena can be found at photo shoots in NYC, hair shows in Miami, and other cities owning her image.
What’s happening now: Athena just finished shooting look books for a handful of designers including Marina Makaron Moscow and Tough Luv Clothing. She’s looking forward to shoots in warm weather and her magazine features in Gothic Beauty, Meuse, and Ellements magazines.
