Having had the pleasure of meeting this young model at NY Fashion Week back in September 2017. This young lady impressed me with her confidence, her southern charm and polite smile. From the moment we here at the Atelier were sent Halle's comp card (headshot), we were sure she had a Kate Girl inside waiting to burst out. When she hit our runway in the Katia jumpsuit, she proved us all right.
