WEATHER GIRL: American photographer Amy Arbus encountered almost every kind of weather last December when Marina Rinaldi commissioned her for a special shoot of its fall 2015 collection in Central Park. “We were rained out one day because there were 40 mile-an-hour winds. We also had a snow day. It was a real potpourri,” she related.
The images, showing real-people models and plus-size women cast from the street, are to eventually go on display in New York after earlier being on show during Milan Fashion Week.
