Introducing Beatriz Saladich by Damien Neva

There is almost no oxygen left to breathe in the wee hours that precede New York Fashion Week, but that hasn’t prevented me from delivering an important model profile on one of Paul Rowland‘s newest models to join his image board. Meet Beatriz Saladich, 5’10” (178 cm) 18-year-old from Barcelona who is in town for the F/W 11 shows. This first year university architecture student comes to Ford via View Management of Barcelona, where she debuted last July at 080 Barcelona S/S 11. There she walked for Celia Vela, Cardona Banoche, Stefania Borras, Lee Jean Youn, Bibian Blue, Montse Liarte, and Manish Arora, which she closed.

No stranger to fashion, Beatriz’s eighty-year-old paternal grandmother has been designing haute couture dresses for important women in Barcelona for years. Beatriz is just now at the age where she has been able to draw pieces from her grandmother’s extensive collection of fine clothing for her own stylish use. Counting Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang amongst her favorite designers, Beatriz also has a keen interest in photography. Beatriz almost exclusively shoots film with her medium format Holga, which she admits has made life in a world dominated by digital photography a bit daunting when it comes to development and supplies. Not deterred in the least, however she continues to shoot as does she model and will no doubt make a memorable debut at New York Fashion Week F/W 11.

Comment by Aneesha McNeill

she is adorable. She looks 14 instead her age. She looks so stick, tooth pick and fragile in these pix though. I wish her all the success in this field.
