Maggie Maurer picks and chooses her modelling work carefully. “I do it with my heart,” the Potsdam-born beauty tells Vogue. “If someone gives me theirs, I’ll give them mine.” When her friend Fran Burns called Maggie ahead of London Fashion Week to scope her out for Nensi Dojaka’s autumn/winter 2022 show, the German model’s response was, “Wicked”. Maurer had been watching the city’s bright young star for a while, and was keen to throw her support behind Nensi. The catch? She’s four months pregnant, and Dojaka’s mere whispers of dresses are not for the faint of heart.
“People who know me know I am always here for a saucy moment,” says Paris-based Maggie, who has been lending her striking looks to brands including Calvin Klein and Maison Margiela for almost a decade. Conversations with Dojaka’s team centred around celebrating the strength of women, and so Maurer, who firmly believes that “women’s bodies are like superpowers”, signed up.
