LONDON — Enough models to field a starting XI is how many girls from across the Next network featured in the Simone Rocha Spring / Summer 2017 runway show Saturday afternoon at Southwark Cathedral. Included in the roster of 11 girls was show opener Selena Forrest and a further 10 models including, Jay Wright, Odette Pavlova, Lorena Maraschi, Lineisy Montero, Klementyna Dmowska, Lia Pavlova, Lily McMenamy, Caroline Reagan, Wangy Xin Yu and Maria Clara. Numbers don’t tell the whole story, though as Selena was quick to point out backstage, she fancies it something akin to a state that is approaching omnipresence. “Next is everywhere!” Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though, there is a lot more football (and fashion) to be played in the remaining match and season.
