That's a wrap for Fall/Winter 2012/2013 folks. Above is a shot of Julia Nobis taken just after Miu Miu on Wednesday, the final day of Paris Fashion Week. She's looking a little dazed and confused. Considering that by our count, Nobis walked in 73 shows from New York to London, Milan and Paris - besting her record from last season by one show - no surprises there. Nobis led the Australian model pack once again and quite possibly will also emerge as the season's number one catwalker for the second consecutive time. So far, we have counted 34 Australians on the FW1213 runways. There was pretty much an Australian in every major show of the season. At Chanel, there were five: Nobis, Miranda Kerr, Montana Cox, Rose Smith and Caitlin Lomax. They walked in so many shows, they corrupted frockwriter's interface. No joke. After battling data problems for the past two seasons with the increasing size of these showlist posts, we have now had to put the show details of the busiest Australians into drop-down boxes.
Developments include the arrival of a male model in the season's Top 10 Australians by show numbers for the first time (Angus Low) and the emergence of a number of new faces direct from the Australian modelling competition circuit: from the Girlfriend Model Search (Jemma Baines, Chrystal Copland) to reality tv shows Australia's Next Top Model (Cox, Amanda Ware) and Make Me A Supermodel (Shanina Shaik). Even the Miss Schoolies competition (Ebony Edwards).
Here are the complete Australian showlists for the season (thanks for any headsups on what we may have missed) and a photo gallery of the girls of Paris Fashion Week - all 16 of them.
