Erin Wasson is the new campaign star for Dorsey
You know what they say: manifest, manifest, manifest. Meg Strachan, founder and CEO of vintage-inspired lab-grown gemstone company Dorsey, has had her vision come to life with the unveiling of model Erin Wasson as the new face of the brand. Known for her inimitably cool edge and personal style, Wasson, now 40, was a mainstay in campaigns and on runways for most of the aughts. Now, she’s appearing as the star of Dorsey’s Fall ’22 campaign and new collection launch. Captured in Paris by Nikola Borissov, she’s helping to introduce the brand’s affordable D VS1 diamonds as part of its new chain collection. (Prices range from $125 – $4,500 and the styles are available now). Dorsey, which counts Hailey and Justin Bieber, Emma Roberts, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Constance Wu among its fans, was launched by Strachan in 2019 after she spent 15+ years working at companies including Anine Bing, Goop, and Girlfriend Collective.
