Most people spend fashion week flipping out over the newest clothes, trends, hair styles, shoes, sunnies, and jewels, but for model lovers it’s a perfect opportunity to scout new talent. Walking the right shows (or any shows, really) during fashion week can launch a model’s career. Walking for Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang, Prada, Miu Miu, or Louis Vuitton has made the careers of so many models in the past, so we had to check out the models doing it in the spring 2012 shows.
Click through our slideshow to find out who the newest big names of the season were, as well as some industry vets who we couldn’t leave out. (Namely Julia Nobis because she walked basically every show, and Bette Franke because she’s back on the runway!) Many of them even spoke to us about their experiences, so click away.
