Daria/IMG. Ph by Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue July 03
Move over Brazil. Take a backseat Belgium. For 2003 the hot model source was America’s quiet neighbour, Canada. With Prada icon Daria Werbowy/IMG stomping the Spring/Summer 04 catwalks to smithereens, Jessica Stam/IMG sprinting forward as a new camapign force and Heather Marks/Supreme leaping out as a major breaking face, expect a scouting stampede to those Nothern borders. As one intrepid model hunter put it. “Canada is a $300 plane ticket away. Visas are usually a snap. The girls speak English and occasionally French. They’re as clean cut and All-American as the Americans yet they have a bit of that ” continental ” polish about them. Its all about Canada right now” Which makes MDC think it might want to get to the front of that bandwagon and start its 04 Canadian model-tracking…now!
