The world of modelling is a massive industry with brands and publications all clambering to get the latest and hottest models to feature for them as they recognise the power these women hold.
This is why it can be very important for these industries to latch onto the next best thing before they blow up. Well we try and do the same here at World Swimsuit as we kick off our week with another fresh face that you should be taking note of.
Born in the small town of Barysaw, Belarus, Zhenya Katava is a model whose profile is quickly getting her to the top of the runway game. Becoming an internationally known figure from Belarus is no easy task so it goes to show what an impression she’s leaving on everyone she’s worked for.
Her runway debut came in 2011 for Costello Tagliapietra’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection and she has since gone on to forge herself as a runway staple for some of the world’s biggest brands. Fashion houses, Diane von Furstenberg, Giorgio Armani, Vivienne Westwood and Marc Jacobs have all called on her talents to show off their various collections.
Let’s not forget her work for Elle Italia, Interview Russia and Harper’s Bazaar magazines and now you see just why we’ve chosen her as our latest fresh face. When asked in an interview where she would most like to live the model replied, “Near the sea, a beautiful Island” and that’s just another reason we’re massive fans of this Belarus beauty.
