The faces of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia SS 13/14

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is done and dusted for another year. Who were the top showgirls - and guys? Frockwriter asked all the major Sydney booking agencies for their top models at the event and here is the result. Yes there were a couple of high profile ring ins who flew in for show exclusives - Georgia May Jagger for Camilla and Hanne Gaby Odiele for Ellery. The list of 41 names, below, includes four other internationals (Solveig Hansen, Juliette Fazekas, Alanna Whittaker and Isabelle Sauer). Interestingly, however, the list is dominated by a plethora of new local faces who have never previously appeared at the event. Some recently profiled by frockwriter, notably Kiwi Holly Rose Emery, April Tiplady and Gabby Dover. Great to see some of Australia's biggest international runway names back in town supporting the local industry and it was no surprise at all to find Nicole Pollard, Julia Nobis and Ruby Jean Wilson at the top of the list. What is perhaps surprising is to see a newcomer such as Emery also at the very top of the list, ranked by her show numbers (not including off-schedule shows from the week before). 

Nobis was, as one might expect, omnipresent, opening 13 shows and closing 11. 

Only two agencies provided opening and closing information, so feel free to fill in any gaps. 

There are many reasons why some models in our MBFWA showcards posts either did not appear at the event at all, or had their show numbers clipped - other more pressing work or school (in the case of newcomer Astrid Holler) commitments at the top of the list. Flying in to Sydney at the last minute and missing castings, another. 

To be fair, we contacted all the major Sydney agencies and asked for their top MBFWA models and this is what they supplied. Frockwriter thoroughly appreciates that there may well be many other models with higher show tallies than some of those listed by several agencies here and we sincerely apologise for not being able to include everyone. We will attempt to keep track of show castings as they go in future.
