Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Australian model Cassi Van den Dungen makes her Australian Vogue debut in a stunning editorial shot by Will Davidson centred around the theme of Beekeeping. Van den Dungen features alongside Lucas Pittaway in a series of cinematic style shots which depict the eerie, romanticised world of apiculture. The April 2013 Australian Vogue editorial comes on the crest of Van den Dungen's stunning debut at the Fall/Winter 2013 collections where she appeared selectively at Giles Deacon, Maiyet, and the clincher of all, Miu Miu. I am delighted to see Van den Dungen making strides professionally both locally and on the international modelling circuit. Van den Dungen initially rose to prominence during the fifth season of Australia's Next Top Model where she placed as runner-up. In a controversial move, Van den Dungen turned down a much ballyhooed modelling contract with Elite Model Management in New York for personal reasons, and took an extended hiatus from modelling to give birth to her son Drake. Now aged 20, Van den Dungen has returned to modelling with a newly found focus, a mature outlook on life, and a fire in her belly that is discernible in her most recent editorial appearances. With international representation by Premier in London and Next Models in New York, kudos must also be accorded to mother agency Work Models for steering Van den Dungen's course and allowing her the precious time to reach her full potential.
