There a short piece on her at British Vogue's website:
YOU may not know the name Elena Bartels, but you soon will. She's the model who opened the Versus show in Milan, and Marc Jacobs' Louis Vuitton show in Paris - as well as walking in almost every other big-name show in the last four weeks: from Burberry Prorsum and Alexander McQueen, to Prada and Dolce & Gabbana - all thanks to an incredible Polaroid.
"I first spotted Elena on a blog and managed to track her down to her Hamburg agent called Promod," Premier's Sissy Best, the agency's new faces booker, told us."What is remarkable about Elena is the response we had on her after just sending out a few Polaroids. She did not do New York but secured almost every major show after that, including the prized Louis Vuitton opening slot. We can't wait to see what the next few months will bring for her."
The 17-year-old German may not have shot even one editorial yet, but fashion magazines are sure to be clamouring for her following her incredible debut show season. Watch this face.
