Top 10 Newcomers F/W 2014 - Annemijn Dijs

Dutch newcomer Annemijn Dijs first landed on IMA's radar at the Australian Spring/Summer 2013 collections when she walked for a slew of local designers including Alex Perry, Manning Cartell, and Easton Pearson. During the New York Spring/Summer 2014 shows Dijs resurfaced at the Natalie Joos Castings where IMA was in attendance, displaying a glowing confidence and disarming beauty. However it was while IMA assisted at castings for Oscar de la Renta in December 2013 that Dijs showed true conviction and signs of a shift in her modelling trajectory, landing her first major blue chip bookings for Oscar de la Renta and Balenciaga's Pre-Fall 2014 Presentations. With industry buzz surrounding the nineteen year old Rotterdam native, Dijs made the leap to modelling's major league at the current Fall/Winter 2014 collections with a pristine show list that has so far included appearances at Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Diesel Black Gold, Giles, Jonathan Saunders, Missoni, Aquilano Rimondi, Céline, and opening slots at Antonio Marras and Maison Martin Margiela. 

Discovered at age 15 by Dune Agency in Amsterdam and represented globally by IMG Model Management, Dijs committed to modelling full-time upon completion of her high school education a little over a year ago and has grown immeasurably over that period. Having become acquainted with Dijs over the past year, it is particularly gratifying to witness her evolution from runway novice to bonafide star in the making. On the runway, in print, and in the flesh, Dijs emits a powerful sensual androgyny with her lanky 178 cm frame, piercing blue eyes, and prominent jawline. Dijs' unconventional and versatile beauty has proven to be a key advantage amongst the sea of homogenous pretty faces in abundance on the Fall/Winter 2014 runways. Dijs' "model-as-muse" propensity, unflinching beauty, positive attitude, and fearless work ethic land her squarely on IMA's Top 10 Newcomers List for the Fall/Winter 2014 season.
