Arizona Muse’s career speaks for itself. The American‘s major breakthrough came in 2011 with covers for Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, Vogue Korea, Vogue Russia, and Vogue Australia — not to mention Self Service and Dazed & Confused. The latter dubbed Muse as the industry’s newest muse. She’s since covered every major Vogue, including its American and British editions, making her one of the distinct few who have booked covers for the “Big Four”: US Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, and Vogue UK. Famously, she’s been the face of Estée Lauder’s popular fragrance, Modern Muse. She continues to work alongside the industry’s finest tastemakers.
More recently, Muse has dedicated her efforts towards sustainability in fashion. For the last 7 years, Muse has advocated for better environmental practices, urging the fashion industry to examine its relationship with the world via her wide range of partnerships with Chopard, G-Star Raw, Mango, and London’s V&A Museum.
The passionate activist has protested alongside Extinction Rebellion, a socio-political movement with the aim of using civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance to compel government action on climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse.
Arizona has a particular passion for Biodynamic farming and takes her children to volunteer on Biodynamic farms. She recently launched her own charity, DIRT— Foundation for the Regeneration of Earth, whose mission is to support the biodynamic farming movement by raising awareness and funds.
She has adopted the role as a sustainability consultant for fashion companies who wish to lower their environmental impact. Arizona sits on the board of The Sustainable Angle, a non-profit organization that initiates and supports projects that minimize the environmental impact of the fashion industry, and contributes to Fashion Revolution, a team of business leaders, policymakers and brands who work together towards radically changing the way clothes are sourced, produced, and consumed.
