New York Fashion Week is just around the corner, and the industry is already gearing up for a full fashion month circuit to kick off. As we prepare for the onslaught of runway inspiration, we're prepping by curating our Instagram feeds with the freshest new faces walking the runways. Who better to tap for a behind-the-scenes look at all the fashion week goings-on than the models who are working every other show?
Every season, Models.com names its list of top newcomers who broke into the business and quickly became industry favorites, walking their very first season of shows. Last season saw a strong lineup of girls from Anguilla, Brazil, South Korea, Poland, and the American South making a splash in New York and Paris, and they're guaranteed to be the ones to watch as they return to the runways over the next several weeks.
See below to discover the top newcomers to follow before fashion week.
