Valentina Sykes in Favourite Faces for i-D Australia

Our Valentina Sykes features in i-D Australia‘s latest write up on Feel The Futures Favorite Faces.

One of the first faces we ever worked with, we’ve grown up with Vee. Her
dimples are super kawaii and her lush hair and immaculate complexion
are a walking advert for raw veganism and a tonne of Bikram yoga. She’s
the closest thing we’ve got to an F.T.F muse/mascot. –

‘Our Muse’ Annabel Moore for The Iconic

Labelled as The Iconic‘s muse our gorgeous Annabel Moore stuns in their latest TVC for May 2014.
Learn why Annabel has been named The Iconics muse below…
 
What’s your hometown?
Sydney, born and raised.
How did you get into modelling?
Someone actually scouted me on Facebook, they asked
to meet me at the agency and the rest was history!
Outside of modelling, what do you get up to?
I’m studying journalism at uni, but when I’m not doing that
I like to go to festivals, go to markets, hang out with friends,
drink too much coffee, eat Japanese food and write!
Which celebrities inspire your style?
I wouldn’t really say I have a particular style, my wardrobe is pretty much
blues and blacks though, I love Erin Wasson’s style, I don’t like things too
overstated but it needs a bit of an edge and be a little bit grungy as well.

I want to be a writer and I want to live in Tokyo one day.
What was it like working on THE ICONIC shoot?
Lots of fun! I was very windswept working with
about 5 fans but it kept things interesting!
What are your fashion must-haves from THE ICONIC?
I love the Pink Stitch Carbon Skirt and I also wouldn’t
say no to the Maurie and Eve Breeze Dress.
What’s your go-to-winter piece?
A pair of black leather boots or a leather jacket,
they’ll literally never go out of fashion.

Holly Rose for i-D Australia in ‘The Rise Of Holly’

Our gorgeous Holly Rose talks to i-D Australia about being a regular New Zealand teenager, to one of the most in demand new faces of the moment.

i-D:
New Zealanders grow up with such a relationship to the landscape, when you
travel overseas do you miss that connection to nature?

Holly Rose: It’s amazing that I never really thought about how much nature
influenced my life, but even not being able to see as many stars really affects
me. I do miss nature, when I go home it makes me enjoy everything so much more.
I never get sick of going up Mount Eden and spending hours just sitting in
nature and appreciating what Auckland has to offer

What are
your favourite things during summer in the city?

There are frozen yoghurt vans everywhere, and street stalls selling mangos.
There is nothing like fresh mango or a froyo to help with the very humid New
York summer 

 

What do
you want to be when you grow up?

I want to own a vineyard and winery with a five star restaurant on it and a
luxury resort down in the South Island of New Zealand somewhere. I would like
to be an author of a novel, be a baker and own a bakery, dabble in styling, and
I think that’s it for now. I have always been a pretty indecisive person, but
hey I’m a Gemini.

Best moment of the entire Fashion weekend?
We became quite inventive
after 17 shows and decide to pass the same bag around throughout a section of
