Rocking the Runway
The Spring 2012 shows were a true turning point for the Dutch model. During the spring shows Marte Mei van Haaster walked for Givenchy, Chanel, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and even closed for Celine and opened for Acne. After walking on these prestigious runways, her status was instantly elevated.
At the end of Fashion Week season, van Haaster was asked what she learned from the experience… Her answer? She learned how to deal with disappointment and how to focus on the positive and be thrilled about the future.
In her short career, fashion photographer Steven Meisel shot Marte Mei for the Lanvin Spring 2012 campaign, alongside Aymeline valade and other top models. She was also shot for the brand’s video campaign.
Despite the fact that Marte Mei didn’t originally plan to pursue modeling as a career, she has definitely taken the fashion world by storm. We are certain that we’ll be seeing much more of van Haaster in the coming Fashion Weeks and on the First Face countdowns.
