Frockwriter first noticed Katerina Chang at the David Jones show in Sydney last month. As it emerges, it is no surprise that we haven't seen that much of her. Living in Australia for four years, initially studying a marketing degree at the University of Western Sydney, this 21 year-old Taiwanese beauty with Marlene Dietrich cheekbones first walked into the Sydney offices of Chadwick Models in July last year. She has been quietly building a body of work.
Prior to the David Jones show, Chang was cast in Chanel's Resort 2012 showing for private Australian clients on December 1st at Sydney's Vaucluse House. Last week saw her on the catwalks of the L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival (which frockwriter attended as the guest of the organisers).
Australian fashion photographer Georges Antoni has evidently become quite a fan.Antoni has shot Chang for Harpers Bazaar Singapore (see two shots below from the 'Heartbreak Hotel' story in the magazine's October 2011 edition); in addition to Grazia Australia and also Kirrily Johnston's Autumn/Winter 2012 marketing campaign.
We predict she is going to be in high rotation on the runways of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia in Sydney from April 30th - May 4th (click here for a preview of the schedule).
