Erin Wasson is often described as a “model”, “designer”, and “muse”. What does this really mean? Sure, she slays the runway in shredded denim, but she can also design said denim, and jewellery, and entire collections for brands like RVCA and PacSun—and she’s built her own lines of apparel and accessories from the ground up. She once described herself as “jack of all trades, master of none”, which is refreshingly down-home and humble for someone in an industry of big egos and blag. Another thing to note: Wasson is an animal activist and dog lover. Her long-time ride-or-die is a ruddy pit bull called Cream. Originally from Texas and now based in L.A., Wasson has been rescuing and raising animals since she was a kid. These days, she’s passionate about the Best Friends Animal Society, rides horses like a pro, and spends time with her four-legged pal. Wasson welcomed us into her Venice Beach bungalow for a hang session and some good conversation.

Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
