The Promise of A New Day

With each show season, literally hundreds of new faces descend on New York City in the hopes of being noticed and more importantly remembered by casting directors, photographers and prospective clients at castings and go-sees. At the Altuzarra casting led by casting dynamo Kannon Rajah, there were a few NYFW first season hopefuls who caught my eye with their beauty, enthusiasm and engaging personalities. My favourite faces included quirky American newcomer Athena Wilson, who had one of the strongest walks of the day, and Brasilian Regina Krilow whose cinematic beauty left me completely entranced. Fellow antipodeans Hirschy Hirschfelder from Melbourne, Australia and New Zealander Anmari Botha fascinated me with their intriguing beauty, sense of style and their laid back personalities. Equally compelling were the deliciously demonic-looking American Wylie Hays and the youthful exuberance of Canadian French newcomer Mae Lapres who recently shot with Steven Meisel for the September issue of W. Classic French beauty Marine Deleeuw is sure to turn heads this season as will Juliana Schurig, who committed to modelling full-time following her recent high school graduation. I am delighted to have had the opportunity to converse with and to photograph these newcomers and will be barracking for them as they navigate the treacherous New York Fashion Week schedule ahead.
