Julia Nobis - the face of Fall

It was just two years ago when Julia Nobis came to the fashion world's attention, thanks to a New York Fashion Week exclusive with Calvin Klein. She then proceeded to power ahead on the world's runways, booking some of the best shows in the business: 33 in that first international show season, Fall/Winter 2010/2011; 43 shows in her second, six months later; 50 in her third; 72 in her fourth; and 73 shows in total in her fifth and most recent season – Fall/Winter 2012/2013 in February and March this year. For two consecutive seasons, the now 19 year-old Sydney-ite has had the biggest individual show tally of any international model. And all that hard work looks to have finally paid off.

Nobis has just debuted on the 'Top 50 Women' list of, the New York-based It model arbiter, ranked at number 38, the fourth Australian model currently on the list. Sure, Abbey Lee Kershaw (#5) and Miranda Kerr (#10) are much more visible (Ajak Deng appears at #47). They have also had much longer careers. 

Due to her runway visibility in fact, WWD recently dubbed Nobis "The Face of Fall".

But beyond the Fall 2012 show season, Frockwriter understands that Nobis has some very interesting editorial work about to land in international magazines. We also hear that she is due to star in two major European advertising campaigns – as the only featured model. 

Her planned medical studies look to be well-and-truly on the backburner for the time being.
