It’s Haute Couture week here in Paris right now, and everywhere you look there are models running around the city from castings to fittings to shows to castings to go-sees to shows to fittings to re-sees to shows to after-parties to runway rehearsals to makeup tests to go-sees to showroom appointments to fittings and then back to shows again. At least one familiar local-ish face is in town – Australian Caitlin Lomax, who spent a considerable chunk of time modelling in New Zealand last year with Red11. It’s the Perth-native’s first time working in Europe, and she’s already got some incredibly exciting options lined up (seriously, watch this space). Lomax is staying in Paris with her boyfriend, Dutch male model Edmond Roosendaal. What’s better than being young and in love and in Paris in the summertime? I’ll tell you tomorrow.
Kiwi Emily Baker is also here in town, so expect to see her on the catwalk at Chanel (she’s walked 100% of the label’s shows since she started in January – ie. two). Another new face about to debut big is Australian Claire Collins – it’s her first time in Europe, she’s never walked a show, and rumour has it she’s booked for something huge today. Best of luck to the Antipodeans this week! I’ve got a feeling we’re going to see some meteoric rises from those volcanic ashes.
I LIKE YOU!
