Notes on Milan Part 1

This past weekend in Milan, Julius Beckers,  Jeremy Young and other top 10 Newcomers from last season continue their stellar run with appearances in all the blue chip shows. OTM has made note of some new sizzling faces to watch for the upcoming editorial and campaign season. (Their list of shows will be updated as Milan wraps up).

First introduced to us by Greg Kadel back in June of 08, Vladimir Ivanov finally arrived on the scene full time this past fall. His outstanding first season in Milan is fulfilling the promise of that spectacular photo with shows for Belstaff, Bottega, D&G, DSquared, Dolce & Gabbana, Frankie Morello, Gaetano Navarra and Trussardi.

We first met Danny Schwarz, the charismatic young Brit backstage last season in NY. He’s having a superb F/W 09 show season after booking Belstaff, Bottega Veneta, Cavalli, DSquared2,  D&G, Dolce & Gabbana, Iceberg, John Richmond and Versace. (Premier Model Management London, VNY Model Management)

OTM was delighted to see Thomas Hoefnagels in Alessandro dell’Aqua, D&G, Iceberg, John Varvatos, Les Hommes, Prada and Trussardi. As the freshest face on our radar, Thomas’ chiseled face looks to be most requested come spring. (IMM Bruxelles, Elite Milan, pic from Premier Model Management, VNY Model Management)

  4. What a great picture of Vlad!!! Why no photo credit?! Who is the eye behind the lens?

  5. To fotofan,

    These are all digitals taken by their agents. I’m sure that the Wilhelmina agent who took this of Vlad would be very flattered.
