The end of the couture season marks the start of the big leagues – Ready to Wear. With the season being only days away, we looked to the city of light for a few new faces that were on our radar. Jury’s out if any will pop up during the new Fall 2018 season but if past years tell us anything, we’ll definitely have to have our eye out come Top Newcomers time.
This dutch stunner popped up at the start of the season on the Anita Bitton casted Schiaparelli couture runway with a coveted opening slot. Though it was her rookie season she played it off like a natural and the next day scored a part in the Miu Miu Pre Fall 2018 look book.
We talked about her as soon as saw her at Schiaparelli but Margo still stuck in our minds. Her first runway season was a debut at Jean Paul Gaultier last year but the Marseille model muse still made an impact as she floated down the runway at the top of the week.
While this wasn’t her first ride at the runway rodeo, new face Akiima is starting to pick up steam. She had a fire hot couture season with bookings at Maison Margiela, Iris van Herpen, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Fingers crossed she turns the slow burn into a blaze come NYFW.
The Netherlands pops up models like they do tulips, minus the mania. New star Fedde adds to the model breeding ground as she took spots at Giambattista Valli, Valentino and Schiaparelli. She certainly carried that feathered jellyfish chapeau with all the grace one can muster.
After an exclusive debut at Burberry in 2015, Ninouk was just named Model of the Week and made her couture stamp with appearances at Givenchy, Dior, and Valentino this season. Prada has also took a liking to her elfin like features and pixie crop with an exclusive spot lasts season so it’ll be interesting to see what she does stateside.
This statuesque Senegalese stunner’s closing spot at Gaultier piqued our interest and had us wanting to know more. The former volleyball player was just getting warmed up runway wise before January but finally hit her stride this couture season.
And speaking of Gaultier, this couture season was Milano Nasu’s first time as well but she looked like a seasoned pro, blue fringe and all. The Japanese model has been building her book on the local market with appearances in Vogue Japan and Anteprima.
This newly fringed beauty dominated this couture season with castings in Givenchy, Dior, and Valentino with added ease.
