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

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’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’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’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.”
