Texas-native Sara Grace Wallerstedt has established herself as a runway regular over the past few seasons. Unsurprisingly, FW19 proves to be another action-packed Fashion Month for the ethereal model — she’s cast for a lineup of shows including Tomo Koizumi, Versace, Christopher Kane and more.
Agency: IMG (Worldwide).
Hailing from Seoul, Hyunji Shin not only is one of the top models in her home country, but she’s also been active in the global fashion scene. During the FW19 season, the IMG signee has continued to keep herself busy, and has walked for brands including Tom Ford, R13, Jil Sander and Versace to name a few.
Newcomer Rebecca Longendyke has quickly become a favorite of the fashion industry. In addition to appearing in Spring/Summer 2019 campaigns for Chanel and Saint Laurent, the blonde model is also spotted at shows including Moschino, Prada and Dries Van Noten this season.

South Sudanese model Aliet Sarah has enjoyed a career breakthrough this Fashion Month.

A breakout model this season, Dotain Yeshitela walked her first show ever at Dior’s girl power-charged catwalk. Shortly after that, she has achieved another career milestone by opening the Lanvin show in Paris. It’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing this fresh face regularly in the next few seasons.

We’re first introduced to Russian model Simona Kust when she walked for Saint Laurent as an exclusive last season. The pink-haired model, who got her head-turning dye-job as requested by Anthony Vaccarello, is undoubtedly one of the top new models to watch. For FW19, she once again graced the catwalk at Saint Laurent.
FW19 Highlight: Chloé, JW Anderson, Saint Laurent.
Chinese model Chun Jin entered her very first Fashion Month with a bang. After kicking off her FW19 season by walking for JW Anderson, she opened the show for Christopher Kane and was also booked for Fendi, Prada, Saint Laurent and more.
