Future supers: The fresh-faced models that caught our eye at LFW

Remington Williams


Coming to London high off big successes in New York we were lucky enough to see Remington on the Matty Bovan runway in London. Already a firm favourite of fashion royalty Katie Grand and with major campaigns with Mark Jacobs and high street giant Zara in her portfolio, it goes without saying we will be seeing more of this killer blue eye and raven tresses combo in seasons to come.

Adut Akech

Not quite a new face (you will recognise her from this year’s Pirelli calender and numerous campaigns) but this was the first time she has graced London with her presence for a show season, therefore qualifying her inclusion in this list. A firm favourite with the French fashion houses (we have seen her at YSL and Lanvin) we saw her grace catwalks all over town this season. Originally from South Sudan, the gap toothed beauty moved to Australia when she was six and adopted the name Mary because teachers couldn’t pronounce Adut. With fashion world domination firmly within her reach, I don’t doubt Adut will be the name on everyone’s lips in no time.

Fran Summers

As we know all home-grown It girls find themselves quite at home on the Burberry runway and doe eyed newbie Fran is no exception. This LFW we saw her join brit girl royalty on Christopher Baileys seventeenth and final show for the iconic label. Cast alongside the likes of Cara, Adwoa and Edie, the Yorkshire native was aptly styled in a feather crown, marking her ascent into fashion royalty.

Nicole Atieno

After starting the year with a Marni campaign and British Vogue editorial, not to mention being a firm Gucci favourite, it was no surprise to see this Kenyan beauty gliding down the run ways at Preen and House of Holland. From high street to high end, expect to see a lot more of her piercing gaze.

Sara Grace Wallerstedt

With her striking doll like features, auburn hair and sprinkling of perfectly placed freckles it is unsurprising Texan born beauty Sara has had a stellar year so far. In London we spotted her ethereal presence at the likes of JW Anderson and Burberry, not to mention the coveted role of closing Simone Rocha’s show.

Blesnya Minher

Angolan angel Blesnya Minher is a girl to be reckoned with. From her not so humble Dior debut start to a wildly successful campaign run that includes Valentino and Calvin Klein we welcomed her to London with welcome arms and applauded her maiden LFW trip, which culminated with a JW Anderson appearance.

Giselle Norman

Every season needs a society girl and as happy we were to see Cara return for Christopher Baileys last ever Burberry show, we know her heart lies elsewhere now. Enter stage right her cousin, Giselle Norman who made her LFW debut opening JW Anderson. Signed by the star makers over at Storm (a recommendation by Cara no doubt), Giselle’s trademark symmetrical freckles and cute new bob make her very much a model of the moment. Watch this space.

And the rookie…

Egypt is an ex-Estate Agent from Croydon and she made her first foray into fashion, walking Burberry last week as a complete newbie. Not a bad start! Can’t wait to see where her career takes her once she starts shooting.
