Magdalena (32) is a Polish model who has appeared on countless international runways since 2006. She has walked for a bevy of top designers including Elie Saab, Miu Miu, Chanel, John Galliano, Christian Dior, Balmain, Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Fendi, Prada, Givenchy, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Jean Paul Gaultier, Hermes, Chloe, Karl Lagerfeld and Max Mara.
In addition to conquering the high fashion scene, Magdalena was cast in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2010 which led to numerous appearances in the lingerie brand’s annual runway extravaganza!
After fronting campaigns for numerous brands including Prada, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Givenchy and Victoria’s Secret, Frackowiak decided to develop an aesthetic entirely her own with a focus on hand-made luxury. She started a jewellery line. The effortless model-off-duty-look collection is made from solid 18-karat gold and includes hammered bracelets, pendants, simple chokers and hoop earrings. Frackowiak says she was inspired by architecture. “It has a lot of geometry inside. It’s all about spikes, circles and it connects to the things that I love the most in architecture”.
This beauty hardly needs an introduction. She has dominated the catwalks, and appeared in every major magazine from ELLE to W Magazine and of course, Vogue. The fashion spotlight has certainly had its’ focus on Soo Joo Park.
Soo Joo Park (28) is a well-known model who made her modelling debut back in 2013. Soo Joo was born in Seoul, South Korea, and grew up there until she was 10. Her family then moved to California. Interestingly, modelling was an accidental career for Park. She studied architecture and shortly after graduating, was scouted to start modelling. Living in San Francisco, she had a full-time job doing graphic design for a start-up web company. One fateful weekend, she was shopping in a vintage store and was discovered, being asked if she was interested in modelling, her answer: sure, why not?
Soo Joo’s career took off after she met renowned stylist Carine Roitfeld and shot her for her CR Fashion Book. She was then recommended to designers among the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford. After her encounter with Lagerfeld, it wasn’t long before she was walking the Chanel Spring 2013 Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris. It proved to be the turning point in her career as she walked for everyone from Fendi to Lanvin since.
In an interview, Park discussed how she doesn’t see herself as an Asian model and that part of the reason she bleached her hair was so that wouldn’t be type-casted as an Asian model by the industry or designers. She is still an unmistakeable presence in the fashion industry and will continue to be with her eclectic personality. Soo Joo has a cool, 80’s, rebellious style and a VERYaddictive Instagram feed!
