A/W 2012 was one of my favourite ‘model seasons’ to date. Mixed in with the supers were a plethora of up-and-coming beauties: from Zuzanna Bijoch (above) to the i-D cover model Lina Zhang, there was a lot of fabulous werk happening in New York, London, Paris and Milan. One model even walked 73 shows! (See below)

Issa Fall Winter 2011
The 10th anniversary for the brand that Kate Middleton inadvertently put on every housewife’s lips? Yeah, I was expecting big things from Issa. Yasmin Le Bon and Andrea Dellal were just two of the top models presenting us with Daniella Issa Helayel‘s meritorious draping, statement head wear, signature silk jersey, with Manolo Blahnik and Stephen Jones accessories. See the top five looks below! View Post

Beijing China Fashion
Is there new fashion competition for New York, London, Milan and Paris? Maybe so, from the recent sartoriality (…if it’s a word) of Beijing and the rest of China. US Vogue was the first to latch on, acknowledging the influx and import of Asian top models last month in a spread called “Asia Major”. HBIC Anna Wintour also recently announced that Vogue will set up a Fashion Fund in China.

Prada is next on the bandwagon as they have just announced that they will stage a show of their spring collection – along with specially created pieces – in Beijing on January 22. The powerhouse designer label is also rumored to be considering a listing on the Hong Kong Stock exchange. Three years ago, premonition pals Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi staged a show on the Great Wall…get ready for an Asian Boom, fashionistas.

Fashions Night Out Show
Vogue promised that there would be 150 top models at New York City’s largest-ever public fashion show, Fashion’s Night Out: The Show, and the names are even bigger than we all expected. Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Lily Donaldson, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Angela Lindvall, Sasha Pivovarova, and Coco Rocha will all be walking the runway at Lincoln Center. If you can’t watch the spectacle unfold in person, André Leon Talley and Vogue.com contributor Hanneli Mustaparta will be hosting a live webcast on CBS.com. This may be the only time you’ll see these gorgeous creatures in lower-end threads. A fashion voyeur’s delight no matter where you are.
