New faces: Fernanda Hin Lin Ly

China doll

With a million Mandarin-speaking residents and a burgeoning Chinese tourism market that is now Australia's most lucrative tourism market (which has given rise to, among other initiatives, the new Koncierge luxury title), not before time has a new crop of Asian models finally begun to emerge on the Australian modelling scene.

We've covered Chadwick's Katerina Chang on numerous occasions. Korean-born Yunji Kang from London Management in Melbourne got our attention at the recent Spring/Summer David Jones show.

And now comes cotton candy-coiffed Fernanda Hin Lin Ly.

Scouted by Priscillas at a shopping centre in April and signed almost immediately, the 17 year-old Sydneysider has shot a lookbook for Brisbane label House of Cards, in addition to editorial for Catalogue magazine and Oyster online - two shoots for the latter in fact so far.

At 5'7.5" she's on the petite side of the modelling scale, but she more than compensates for that in cute quotient. Not to mention the My Little Pony hair.
