The upcoming collection will be up for grabs starting 29 November.

Essena O'Neill returns to social media

Back in 2015, Essena O'Neill made headlines when she left the influencer industry and quit social media at the height of her career. What was even more groundbreaking was when she edited all her Instagram posts to narrate what was really going on behind the seemingly effortless glam shots. "NOT REAL LIFE - took over 100 in similar poses trying to make my stomach look good," she writes in a now-deleted post. Now, four years after, O'Neill is ready to make a comeback in the digital arena. FYI, this is her new Instagram account.
