During the Balenciaga Resort 2013 Market Week, the wholesale team show cases the best pieces from the collection to the VIPs of Fashion, including buyers from North America and Asia. This week was vital in determining how well the collection would be received by fashion editors like Anna (Vogue), Carine (Vogue Paris at the time) and Glenda (Bazaar). If well received, the pieces would be used for editorials and spreads throughout the year. Top models like Julia Nobis were hired to present the Resort pieces.
It was a pleasure to dress Julia Nobis. She was down to earth, funny and only 21. I can’t get over how waify and High Fashion she looks. She reminds me of a 21 year old Cate Blanchett – those gorgeous Aussies!
