Plenty of Sass - Sass & Bide S/S 2014

Casting duo Barbara Nicoli & Leila Ananna assembled a cast of fresh-faced relevant beauties for Australian label Sass & Bide's Spring/Summer 2014 presentation. Belgian newcomer Lisa Verberght opened proceedings with a piercing blue steel gaze and striking razor sharp cheekbones. The Society NY continued its take-over of New York Fashion Week runways with a contingent comprising of the ubiquitous trio Marine Deleeuw, Lieve Danau, and Manuela Frey who hail respectively from France, Chile, and Switzerland. Ethnic diversity was also prevalent in the guise of Argentinian Giuliana Caramuto, China's Feng Qi Wen, and Canadian Ethiopian beauty Senait Gidey. Russian supernova Alexandra Martynova and red hot Polish newcomer Marta Dyks brought a smouldering sensuality coupled with a compelling tomboyish androgyny to design duos Heidi Middleton and Sarah Jane Clarke's iconic label. Embodying Sass & Bide's cool girl aesthetic were Australian Jemma Baines, Hungarian cutie Juliette Fazekas, and the pristine Swede Stina Rapp Wastenson. Nicoli recently came under fire for her comments in an interview with Buzzfeed.com on the subject of diversity of fashion's runways, "We don't like to talk in terms of white, Asian, black etc., because a model is a model and that's it. To me, if we want to talk about diversity, it's about the model and not the colour of their skin. It's more about the body, the face, and the attitude. I think the designer has to decide who is good for the collection, and the role of the casting director is to suggest appropriate models. We have to make a proper selection for our clients." No more was this comment more appropriate then in the casting duos stellar line-up of diverse yet uniformly cool collective of Sass & Bide beauties.
