Models

We LOVE our models. 

Of course we do! That’s why they’re our models. Our models are real people that are either our friends, our customers (who have become friends, of course), or awesome folks we have internet crushes on (who have also become friends!).  

At durian & the Lyon, we love celebrating everyone’s fun, fancy personalities, and our models are some of the neatest people we know. We would love for you to meet them here and maybe go check out some of the cool things they do.

Queer, andro-femme who loves working with her hands. Previous life as a drummer/recording engineer, but has now shifted to carpentry and woodworking. 

In love with dressing in dapper fashion AND crop tops- constantly trying to gender f*ck society. Grateful for my queer fam as we support each other in growth and love in a country that is constantly oppressing us.
