"So Australia's biggest fashion event, Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, is just around the corner (May 2-6). Which new faces might it springboard? Frockwriter is betting that Krystal Glynn will be among them. Spotted on Bondi Beach a week ago by The Agency's Lincoln Ferguson, the 5'11" 16 year-old Penrith schoolgirl has, reports Ferguson, already been photographed by David Shields for New Zealand's Black Magazine and shoots tomorrow with Christopher Morris for the same title, with a booking from Rene Vaile to shoot for Oyster and Holly Blake for another magazine. And she is about to be signed to New York agency DNA. "It's a scouter's paradise" says Ferguson of his Bondi HQ, where he stumbled upon Glynn stretched out on the sand, soaking up the sun in a vintage white crochet one-piece. "Everyone walking past was stopping and staring at her, she was oblivious to everything. I thought I was looking at a shot from RUSSH or old school Vogue from the 1980s”."
Lincoln Ferguson, owner of boutique Sydney agency The Agency has unearthed a gem in 16-year-old Krystal Glynn. The Sydneysider was discovered on her second trip to Bondi Beach by Ferguson recently and in very short time has secured a contract with DNA Models, New York. This girl is going to fly. Here is her first test, wearing Zambesi, by photographer Thom Kerr, styled by Cassandra Scott-Finn, hair & make-up by Rebekah Clark @ Work. Definitely one to watch....
Friend of Mine is a two year old Sydney label founded by Teale Talbot and Letitia McLean. It made its runway debut yesterday with a high energy show of cool girl clothes worn by a bunch of super cool girls, styled by one of the coolest in the business – Sydney model/blogger Alexandra Spencer, whose sexy, self-styled autoportraits have no shortage of net fans. Kitted out in the Flintstone fly leather shift dresses and lace bodycon dresses with destroyed hemlines, leather playsuits and an endless array of shorts, were a couple of model standouts, most notably Bardot-esque 16 year-old Krystal Glynn (above), who opened the show. Scouted by The Agency's Lincoln Ferguson on Bondi Beach in late March, Glynn seems destined for the first available international runway season. Another bottle blonde also stood out: 164cm Melburnite Anja Konstantinova who, although dwarfed by the rest of the lineup, has more charisma than more than many other girls who are the traditional runway requisite height of 5'10". That's Konstantinova pictured second and third, below.
