It's common knowledge in the modelling industry that overnight success rarely happens overnight. In fact some of this country's biggest successes Daria Werbowy, Coco Rocha, Yasmin Warsame, Anaïs Pouliot, Irina Lazareanu worked for years before the fashion industry trumpeted their arrival.

Add Grace Mahary, who first appeared on Modelresource more than seven years ago, to that list.

Originally scouted by then-Elmer Olsen-booker Sean Beckingham, the Edmonton-reared Eritrean has been a favourite in Toronto for years, but remained under the global radar until last season, when Givenchy tapped her to do an exclusive turn for its couture collection. A Q&A with The Cut followed, providing all-important exposure stateside.

That springboard vaulted her into must-have status this season, where she walked for dozens of designers, including Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Prada, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Saint Laurent and Givenchy (again).

And now comes the phase where the rest of the web media make their own pronouncements; most notably Models.com, which annointed Mahary a Top 10 Newcomer, and vogue.co.uk, which authored its letter of introduction last week.

Great job by Fashion Magazine to tap the talents of Toronto-born photographer Benjamin Kanarek (benjaminkanarek.com) for their 35th anniversary issue.

"A Canadian in Paris" is a beautiful story shot around the Hôtel de Crillon, employing the always lovely Amanda Nimmo (CoverModels, Spot 6, Montage).

NEW FACE ALERT


Earlier this year at the Canadian Model & Talent Convention, scouts from around the world got their first look at MIM's Tristen.

The 5'11" blonde attracted a LOT of attention, pinballing between literally dozens of callbacks before choosing Spot 6 in Toronto, Montage in Montréal.

Now 16 years old, she makes her first appearance in Flare, just a few months after covering PRESS The Fashion.

Congratulations to Montana Friskie, winner of Saturday's Discovered (www.bediscovered.ca) model search in Regina.

On the eve of her 17th birthday, the Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Grade 12 student was selected ahead of seven other finalists; a group whittled down from a much larger pool of contestants entering from as far away as Manitoba and Alberta.

In addition to the model search, Discovered -- created by Edge Agency and Sara Lindsey Makeup Artistry (www.saralindsay.ca) -- also raises money and awareness for Childen's Wish in Saskatchewan, pulling in more than $38,000 from this year's event alone (up from $27,000 last year).

5'8" Friskie is the third winner of the annual event. The first two (Regina's Thomas Perras and Raymore's Kyle Schachtel, respectively) are both currently modelling in Asia.
