Models Direct, UK’s leading commercial modelling agency, will share all this with you right here. So without further ado, let’s uncover what the rest of ’22 has in store for all you fashionistas!

Latest Fashion News

We wanted to pay tribute to the icon of the golden age in fashion, Manfred Thierry Mugler, who sadly passed away this year aged 73. The French designer was known for his best-selling perfume Angel and his amazing fashion taste. Thierry Mugler was a pioneer with a revolutionary vision having beautifully adorned celebs like Lady Gaga and Beyoncé in his successful career.

This month we have also lost the talented 37-year-old French actor Gaspard Ulliel in a skiing accident. He magically depicted iconic designer Yves Saint Laurent and romantic drama A Very Long Engagement alongside Audrey Tautou, winning him the Cesar Award for Most Promising Actor for his supporting role in 2004 and then 13 years later Best Actor for It’s Only the End of the World.

This Year’s Fashion/Modelling Marketing Campaigns

We’ve been keeping a close eye on marketing campaigns because we know what it takes to make a good one! Our eyes have been set on a few and our favs deserve a mention here. Everyone’s incredible Spiderman, Tom Holland, stars in Prada’s campaign. We love the simplistic direction this campaign has taken. Hailey Bieber showcases Mui Mui and Jimmy Choo with must-have statement pieces, and singer-songwriter Maluma features in Versace’s spring men’s collection with some amazing new staples. We love! Let us know which one you like too!

Trends to Look Out For

Going Oranges (instead of bananas!)

Orange is the new black (and we don’t mean the US show!). We’re seeing this colour ripple through a lot of clothing on the catwalk and we’re pretty sure it’ll be coming to a clothing rail near you! From knits to trousers to blazers, sunshine may be heading into your wardrobe this year.

Blazing Through with Oversize

Designers such as Chanel and Prada are going big with blazers. This season is sticking to the oversized look with this apparel, and why not? Room to move easily or layer up, the blazer is looking smart, smooth and cool for this season. So for any boardroom meetings like modelling assignment briefings, you can bet an oversized blazer will exude confidence, professionalism and of course, fashion!

Abs on Display

This trend is exactly what it means it says. We’ve seen a lot of midriffs being flaunted on the runway and there’s no stopping! For all body types out there, get ready to follow this trend – be bold and proud of yourself!
