December 19th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As a season between seasons it’s easy to overlook the importance of pre-fall, but the mini-season is full of lookbooks, presentations and the occasional high profile show. When it comes to casting certain models have been clearly dominating the field with multiple appearances in designer pre-fall lookbooks, which can often serve as foreshadowing for campaigns and other lucrative work with the team behind the scenes. Take a look at which girls are doing well this pre-fall and the myriad of ways designers put their versatile beauty to good use.

JULIANA SCHURIG
PREFALL LOOKBOOKS : Burberry Prorsum, Chloe, Diesel, Elizabeth and James & J. Mendel

As one of fashion’s in demand cool girls, Juliana has been appearing everywhere this pre-fall. Brands like Diesel and Elizabeth & James don’t share a link with Chloe & Burberry on the surface, but Juliana’s appearances in imagery for each of those lines shows her ability to add a touch of chic to high & low end looks.

MIJO MIHALJCIC

PREFALL LOOKBOOKS – Prabal Gurung, Thakoon & Sachin & Babi

We’re not sure why designers have been swathing Mijo in layers of print and pattern this season, but so far we’re loving it – she has a way of making even the most unusual combinations look easy & wearable.

KAT HESSEN

Luxury with an edge, much like her selective show seasons Kat’s pre-fall lineup is well edited and enviably high profile. Each line is different but they’re united by their low key take on luxury. Kat wears each piece like a second skin and adds an inimitable poise to all her shots.
