Julia Nobis - The Aussie Blonde Rocker | FashionTV’s Model of the Week
During her fashion week season debut, she walked for 9 top designers and brands. Her unique look and strong appearance on stage earned her the 3rd spot on FashionTV’s Spring 2012 First Face countdown. She’s also known for playing guitar for model pals backstage before a show.
She’s been recognized as a rising star and today, she’s one of the most familiar faces on the catwalk. Julia Nobis is our Model of the Week.
Julia Nobis started modeling locally in 2009 at the age of 16. The Australian blond model caught the eyes of scouts and fashion producers and in 2010 at 17 years old, she received a modeling contract at Elite Models Management.
Rocking the Runway
Nobis’s first time on an international catwalk was during Calvin Klein Fall 2010 in New York. She walked exclusively for the American fashion house. But this was just the beginning of a wonderful fashion experience for the Aussie transplant.
The next step on Nobis’s modeling career was during the same season, but this time on the runways of London Fashion Week. The young model got to open the fall Topshop show in London, and also closed the Richard Nicoll show.
While Nobis was on the catwalks of London, she got invitations for Milan and Paris. The Australian rising star walked the Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Maison Martin Margiela and Miu Miu Fall fashion shows. After these appearances, she was quickly known as one of the top ten best newcomers in the fashion world to date.
Later in 2010, Nobis walked her first couture show. It was for Valentino Haute Couture in Paris.

The great year continued into the Spring 2011 fashion shows. She opened and closed the Proenza Schouler fashion show and also walked for Burberry, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Balenciaga runways. She also presented looks at the spring Chanel and Elie Saab couture fashion shows.
During Spring 2012, Julia Nobis was already a familiar name on the catwalks. That season she opened the Peter Som, Rebecca Taylor, Son Jun Wan, Dries van Noten, Pedro Lourenco and Alexander McQueen fashion shows in New York and Paris. She closed the Viktor & Rolf, Son Jung Wan and Proenza Schouler fashion shows.
Spring 2012 was the first time Julia Nobis was ranked on FashionTv’s First Face countdown. She was #3 on the countdown, having opened more shows than most models that season and only beat out by Anja Rubik and Aymeline Valade in the #2 and #1 spots.
