To shoot our Summer Life story, Steph Smith flew into the idyllic Byron Bay from her homeland, Toronto, Canada. Between opening shows in New York and starring in sought-after campaigns and editorials, Steph is a girl on the rise. Here, we ask her what she loves about summer, her most treasured moments and tricks she’s learnt from the trade.
