The 5 New Faces to Know at Burberry

Vogue
Sanita Mattis

No matter the season, Burberry is one of the biggest shows for new models, and that certainly was the case at today’s Fall 2016 see-now-buy-now presentation in London. Often setting foot on the runway for their international debut, the models chosen by casting directors Barbara Nicoli and Leila Ananna tend to go on to do big things. Get to know five of the newcomers who walked Christopher Bailey’s catwalk for the first time and why they’re worth paying attention to.

Sanita Mattis

Hometown: May Pen, Jamaica
Agency: Elite London

As the latest Jamaican model to debut on the high-fashion scene, Sanita Mattis was discovered just this April by Deiwght Peters, the man behind the careers of stars like Tami Williams and Kai Newman. Mattis may look austere on the catwalk, but in reality, she’s a small-town girl. A singer with a love of R&B and hip-hop, Mattis spends her off-duty time indulging in her favorite hobby: making homemade dishes for friends and family.

Scottish beauty Flo Millar didn’t just walk Burberry’s see-now-buy-now extravaganza, she can explain the social science behind the collection, too.

Hometown: Weeping Cross, England
Agency: Nevs Models

An artist with a love of expressive watercolors and line drawings, Robyn Gallow shares her creative output on Tumblr. When she isn’t immersed in her work, Gallow is headed out to castings on her skateboard. A self-described tomboy, with bright green eyes and wavy, strawberry blonde hair, Gallow fits right in with the current generation’s model multitaskers.

Hometown: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Agency: IMG London

Sporting the show’s final look, Elibeidy Danis Martinez ended the collection on a high note. Though Burberry is her first fashion show ever, her confident stride—and ability to pull off those dramatic ruffs—made a lasting impression, one that should give her an advantage for the remainder of the season.

Maya Gunn

Hometown: London, England
Agency: Next London

It wouldn’t be a Burberry show without an English rose, and Maya Gunn fits the bill admirably. With her dark, wavy hair and bushy brows, Gunn calls to mind buzzy beauties like Taylor Hill and Arizona Muse but with a charm all her own.
