One girl, one city: acting as our third eye to share the backstage secrets, viral moments and model antics this womenswear season will be our #dazedmodelinsider. First up, New York with Janice Alida. But keep your eyes on which other top models we have lined up and waiting to flash and filter for London, Milan and Paris.
A regular face on the catwalk, @janicealida walked for Chanel, Lanvin and Dior, and starred in the Dazed collections issue, September 2013. Before we let her loose to the insider world of New York Fashion Week, we put Janice through her paces with a little Dazed pop quiz.
