xx Happy Weekend Everyone!! xx
Paris Fashion Week has come to an end with a BANG, and so has the incredible whirlwind introduction into the world of fashion for this season’s biggest newcomer,Lara Mullen. Ever since she was scouted, feels like yesterday, she’s been gaining momentum by the hour so it seems, Prada (Exclusive), Givenchy, Celine, Chloe, Dries Van Noten, Alexander Wang, Jonathan Saunders and many more, literally could not get enough of the 17 year old English beauty. Lara took off to Paris 12 days ago with myself, and we’ve kept a little photo diary for all of you who couldn’t be there… see below
Lara’s Headquarter was a lovely apartment, with gianormous terrace in the Marais, as we pretty much only travelled by good old Metro Lara can by now pretty much call herself a true Parisian, well at least the type of Parisian who knows her way around all the major fashion houses.
Lara’s days were absolutely crazy, filled with fittings (that sometimes could run into the early hours of the morning), castings and shows so we needed to make sure her body was fuelled only with the finest of fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts and small amounts of 85% dark chocolate which we got daily at the local market, to keep her skin glowy and spirits going. Apart from top nourishment we could not leave the house without Caudalie’s lip conditioner and the exquisite Decleor Arromessence Neroli - together they give you the ultimate dewy, natural look, naturally without any make up. However Paris wasn’t just ‘all work no play’, we managed to squeeze in a riverboat cruise to get familiar with la cite, did some sample sale shopping and popped by the exclusive photo exhibition of the fabulous Austrian design duo Wendy&Jim with fellow Premier model Beegee. Oh and one should perhaps mention the goodies the girls get at the shows… par example a Celine bag, Dries Van Noten jumper, Chloe bag… not too shabby being a model in ueber demand, no!?

It’s the day after one of the most exciting days - ever! Lara Mullen, the girl that’s literally been modelling for 4 weeks, discovered by our director of scouting, Anthony Gordon, at a misty miller concert earlier this summer, has done the impossible! She has been handpicked by the world’s most powerful casting agent and became one of the very few, carefully selected and incredibly special girls that have the honour to strut their stuff for Miuccia in Milan. For those of you not in the fashion know, you can kind of compare it to winning the lottery, well, only kind of as this is a far bigger deal really!!! Lara will soon be off to Paris, where I’m sure she’ll be the talk of the town! Here we have some images of her incredible career so far… Alexander Wang, Vera Wang, Acne, Theory, …. AND PRADA!
We don’t really need to mention that she IS the most MAJOR girl there is, RIGHT NOW!
FIRST OFFICIAL IMAGE OF LARA MULLEN at PRADA!!!! WE CAN’T EXPRESS HOW PROUD WE ARE OF OUR GIRL!!! MAJOR REPORT TO FOLLOW!!!
Premier Model Management
Like every year we must apologize for the neglect. And yes, like every year we so obviously have a good excuse. Fashion Week has come and gone and as per usual we lost some (sleep that is) and gained some (under eye bags). But most importantly everyone from the always so charming models, designers , casting directors, chauffeurs and Premier team has gone to great lengths (we’d like to think of it almost as a symphony orchestra) to ensure a smooth operation of London Fashion Week.
As you may have read, there are a few stones in the way of an even better run of London Fashion Week, but don’t worry the issue is in best hands and as we speak is being dealt with by our boss and founder, Carole White, who has pointed out the exact problem in articles in THE INDEPENDENT and THE EVENING STANDARD - we’ll of course keep you posted on the developments of this burning story! Speaking of Aunty Carole featuring in magazines, New York Magazine are currently running an interview with our queen bee, which we simply ‘ADORE’ (in true American type of lingo)! They must love all things Premier at NY Mag as they’re also showing an exclusive Model Diary of Premier’s Sebastian Sauve!
In terms of girls, we’ve had some amazing faces in the shows this season, Bambi, Julia, Melodie, Tao, Chantal, Emily, Wang, Beegee and many more were all strutting their stuff on the catwalks of some of London’s hottest designers. Model sensation? If at this point you haven’t heard of the lovely Lara Mullen, you’re way out of fashion date. Lara is Premier’s number one shooting star, having started modelling literally a minute ago, when Premier introduced her to NY earlier this month, boy did the fashion world get talking… and they haven’t stopped since. Her features… I quite frankly am lost for words. She’s one of the most exciting faces that have emerged from British soil in ages and we are ecstatic to have found this diamond who walked for Alexander Wang, Acne, Vera Wang, Theory, Topshop, Richard Nicholl, Jonathan Saunders, Daks and Edun!!! Truly sensational! And here comes yet another big announcement, Premier have just signed Kelly Mittendorf!!! Yes, we’re rather excited about this major new addition of fabulousness (PRADA campaign etc)!
Our favourite show? There were many, but if we had to pick one, it’d have to be Giles - the catwalk, the girls, the hair, the make-up and most importantly THE CLOTHES were UNREAL (insert a Premier Loves moment here). Team Premier can also report we have not gained so much on the waist (we usually pile on the pounds due to models arriving with bags of chocolates and sweets from abroad and quick take-away pizzas), we have kept away the excess baggage with a little help from the Hummus Bros who have kindly provided us with their delightful hummus, guacamole, chicken et more creations - super healthy - and super good - models and staff could not get enough!!

We strongly advice you get familiar with this face because its soon to be everywhere! In just two weeks since he was signed to premier Men, Karl Morall has caught the eyes of every designer, magazine, stylist and general fashion it crowd around the globe.
Having just yesterday stepped off the runway of Prada in Milan, he has already shot 2 separate stories for for i-D and G.Q magazine, 10 magazine has dedicated a tweet to the boy, and his requests are flodding in faster than we can blink!
So heres a blog dedicated to the liverpudlian star of the season!
WE LOVE KARL
