Lara Mullen Is London Fashion Week’s Top Model


If New York Fashion Week is the place where a model makes her catwalk debut, London is where a model picks up steam … or fizzles out. After an exclusive opening slot at Calvin Klein last week, German newcomer Franziska Müller scored the first and last looks at Erdem and closed for Aquascutum. Meanwhile, the long underrated Karlina Caune kicked off the fall collections for Paul Smith and Marios Schwab; Kolfinna Kristófersdóttir, Marc by Marc Jacobs’s recent closer, opened and closed for Christopher Kane. But the homegrown talent of Lara Mullen takes the win: The young Brit — beloved by the U.K.'s top fashion folk and represented by Premier Model Management — opened for Mulberry and Topshop Unique. Mullen also covers the spring 2012 issue of i-D magazine and stars on one of Dazed & Confused’s four March 2012 covers. See all of London’s key opening and closing looks in the slideshow ahead.
