Our Model of the Year competition was inaugurated in 2018 by our Editor-in-Chief Wilson Lim as a way of scooping out fresh local faces and serving them to you in the season’s most stunning pieces. This year, our focus hasn’t changed since day one of the competition but the numerical focus is on our top six instead — the original number we were gunning for was five but in the good spirit of surprising you, here they are.
