It was not long after being discovered on Instagram, after entering a contest ran by Micha Models, that this Dutch beauty, Jesse Bloemendaal, made her debut modeling in Valentino’s Spring Couture 2016 Collection.
A few Ready-to-Wear shows in between, and seven months later she was walking for Fendi in their infamous couture show in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Bloemendaal quickly became the next hottest girl in demand. Walking couture shows, Maison Margiela, Iris van Herpen, and Fendi to name a few, is quite the first foray into modeling, and its prestige was not lost on her. “All fashion shows are nice, but [couture] was an experience,” says Bloemendaal.
Her first time in the states was for the Spring 2017 RTW collections, where the 20 year 5’11” stunner walked over 30 shows. “This is my first New York season, I did Europe before, but this is so different,” said Bloemendaal. “You hear everyone talk about the city, how it’s this different world, then you enjoy it for yourself.” She now walks anywhere from 45 to 47 shows a season, which includes top designers as Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Versace, Maison Margiela , Dior, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen and Chanel (even opening and closing for a few).
Now that is a breakout year! I look forward to seeing her beauty grace the covers of the world’s top magazines. No doubt it won’t be long.
