The Spring 2017 campaigns have begun to trickle in. Unsurprisingly, Gigi Hadid is still ever-y-where. Needless to say, 2016’s International Model of the Year and other industry faves (you know who they are) aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. That said, this year saw the rise of some seriously inspiring voices. Jaden and Willow Smith, Amandla Stenberg, Hari Nef and Barbie Ferreira gave the industry a much-needed shake-up — and looked impossibly chic while doing so.
With the new year upon us, we’re hungrier than ever for, as Pantone puts it, revitalization. We’re ready to hear from the next crop of stylish agitators. Fresh faces, personalities and aesthetics are the very lifeblood of the fashion industry. Without them, inspiration would stall and we’d be forced to cancel our Instagirl-heavy magazine subscriptions.
Thanks to our unhealthy obsession with fashion-centric social media, we already have an inkling of who’s going to make up said vogue vanguard. Click through the slideshow above for the lowdown on 14 fashion influencers who are going to dominate headlines, Instagram feeds, hearts, minds and mood boards in 2017.
