It’s a major statement of intent and a precise and powerful one at that. The Next FW 09 show package features 16 girls. 10 of them are blue chip and most wanted (think Anna J, Catherine, Karlie, Myf, Kate and Karmen). Which then makes clients want to pay extraordinary attention to the 6 newbies like Clara, Kelsey, Marloes and Pinkie. From that group, it is almost inevitable that a new star will break for Next. It’s a brilliant use of the power of association no? Stay tuned for the evidence.
