The Graduates

With the Spring/Summer 2013 collections set to kick off in just over a month, W Magazine casts the spotlight on the previous season's most prolific runway blazers for the August 2012 issue. A cast of standout beauties pose for photographer Alasdair McLellan decked out in the season's finest Fall fashions. Julia Nobis, Marie Piovesan, Franzi Mueller, Mackenzie Drazan, Laura Kampman, Maria Bradley, Kremi Otashliyska, Jeneil Williams, Ophelie Rupp, Ondria Hardin, Hirschy Hirschfelder, Nanou Vandecruys and Marique Schimmel are the very embodiment of modelling's current fascination with models with a quirky edge. Whether it be the androgynous appeal of Bradley, Kampman and Nobis to the aristocratic beauty of Piovesan and Mueller to the distinctive one-of-a-kind faces of Drazan, Rupp and Hardin, this is clearly a group of models who intend to be around for the long-haul. In my observation of casting trends over the past few seasons, I strongly believe that the fashion industry and indeed the public, are ready to embrace a new group of top models whose aesthetic will looked back on in years to come as definitive of this decade.
