The womenswear winners of London’s NewGen sponsorships were announced earlier this week, and now the prize is spotlighting the men: J.W. Anderson, Christopher Shannon, and James Long will show their menswear on the runway during LFW’s Man Day, while Lou Dalton, Katie Eary, Omar Kashoura, and knit wits Sibling will have their presentations supported. (Men’s designer Christopher Raeburn, who was listed among the winners yesterday, will also have his installation underwritten.) [Vogue U.K.]
It’s time (again) for Diane von Furstenberg to clear some space on her mantel: The indefatigable designer will receive amfAR’s Award of Courage—alongside President Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Taylor—at the AIDS research nonprofit’s silver anniversary gala next year. [WWD]
Leandra Medine, better known as the voice of Man Repeller, is the high priestess of high-waisted pants—and shoulder pads, schlumpy layers, and all of the other “girls get it, guys don’t” fashion choices out there. Men may be repelled, but the Times wasn’t; Medine got the full profile treatment today. [NYT]

Before a model hits the runway—and before she snags her first editorial, her first ad campaign, and her first billboard—she’s got to make it past the sharp eyes of fashion’s casting directors, who are tasked with finding the perfect girls for designers’ exacting visions. In our new fashion week series, the industry’s top casting gurus share their thoughts on who we’ll be seeing this fashion week—and beyond.
Belgian-born Natalie Joos casts Lacoste, Cynthia Steffe, Pamela Love, and Karen Walker, among others, in New York this season. Below, she weighs in on a few of her favorite new faces.
Kirsi Pyrhonen (left) started last season in London and went on to do a few good shows in Paris. She is 16 and is from Finland. She’s never been to New York, so this will be her first season here. She is very striking and unique-looking.
Caroline Brasch Nielsen (center) started last season in Paris. This will be her first season in New York, too. She is 17 years old, from Copenhagen. She has all the elements to make it in everyone’s top list: the right proportions, a great walk, and poise.
Anais Pouliot (right) from Trump has been on people’s radars for some time. She is French and 19 years old. She’s not a part of the elite group yet but I think she’ll do well this season. She is cute and girly, but in an unusual way. I love her pout!
