The season that was had a million moments worth looking back on, but what was it like for the girls in the middle of it all? MDC caught up with some of our absolute favorite new faces from S/S to find out what they enjoyed – the shows, the parties, and of course the little personal moments that make it all worthwhile.

AGNES NABUURS (DNA Models)
HOMETOWN: Amsterdam
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: Marc Jacobs, Acne, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and more.

AGNES’ MEMORABLE MOMENT: “For me I think the fact that I was crying during the rehearsal at Louis Vuitton was memorable. It was a good cry though – happy tears! The finale with the music and all the girls, I just thought it was so pretty. Since this was my first season and there were these huge shows, watching them all come together can be overwhelming. Vuitton was so beautiful and it just made me really emotional, but it was a wonderful experience.”


KAROLINE BJORNELYKKE (Supreme Management)
HOMETOWN: Norway
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: John Galliano, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Ann Demeulemeester and more

KAROLINE’S MEMORABLE MOMENT: My greatest moment this season was coming down that amazing elevator at Louis Vuitton – unforgettable!


STINA RAPP & GIEDRE KIAULENAITE (Women Model Management)
STINA HOMETOWN: Sweden
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: Balenciaga, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chloe, Valentino

GIEDRE HOMETOWN: Lithuania
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: Balenciaga

STINA’S MEMORABLE MOMENT: “It has to be the Prada show! It was my first big show and the energy was just amazing – watching it come together was a thrill. I’m going to remember that for a long time!”

GIEDRE’S MEMORABLE MOMENT: “Right before I did Balenciaga I was nervous, it can a little scary right before you walk out on the runway. Nicolas Ghesquiere came to me and just said ‘everything will be alright’ and it made me feel so much better. He is so nice and was so very kind.”


VALERY KAUFMANN (Marilyn Model Mgmt)
HOMETOWN: Russia
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: Prada, Valentino, Yohji Yamamoto, Theyskens Theory, Celine

VALERY’S MEMORABLE MOMENT: “Every show was special, but opening DKNY was an amazing moment for me, it was the first show I’d ever opened!”


IRENE HIEMSTRA (DNA Models)
HOMETOWN: Netherlands
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: Celine, Alexander McQueen, Dries van Noten

IRENE’S MEMORABLE MOMENT: “Paris was wonderful, I did Celine, Alexander McQueen, Dries Van Noten, Pedro Lourenco and those were all wonderful. Right before fashion week I got to go to Tokyo and I really enjoyed it, one of the most exciting cities ever! Though New York is pretty nice too.”


ATHENA WILSON (Ford Models)
HOMETOWN: USA
WHERE YOU SAW HER THIS SEASON: Marc Jacobs, Rick Owens, Mary Katrantzou, Fendi, Marni and more

ATHENA’S MEMORABLE MOMENT: “The best part was going to London and Milan and Paris because I’d never been to Europe before and my mom came with me for those. It was great just be with her, even though most of it was getting home at 1AM after fittings and running around to shows, we still got to spend some time time together and share the experience.”

    Finally, this series is back on MDC <3

    I love to read these kind of things, makes them more human.

    I hope part 2 will feature some veterans as well.

  2. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    Great to see Giedre, I like her really a lot. Such a unique face and intense fascinating charm, some shots already showed it, but the best is definitely yet to come.
    PS and those eyes…

  3. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    PPS yep, btw it’s “Kiaulenaite”, you wrote it wrong… these labyrinthine Lithuanian surnames… ;)

    Athena is a beautiful new face and her freshness mixed with grace is ultimately an exciting view of real fashion.

    I like Karoline, she’s nice.

  6. really works in fashion says:

    My vote goes to Karoline. If I got her in a submission I would click for a look at her book. Supreme has something special and interesting in this one.
