She is the girl who started a promising career as a fashion model at the early age of sixteen, who then found herself a few years later, abandoning the modeling industry to focus on what’s closest to her heart, creating visual art. This androgynous looking Dutch then went on to become a student of the Art Academy in her own hometown of Amsterdam, in hopes of pursuing a career in that same field.
‘I think the whole reason why I went to study art was because I was a model’, said De Brauw to Videofashion.
It went about ten years before Saskia De Brauw returned to the fashion scene and by nailing two Vogue covers that very same month, one can for sure state that this model made quite the remarkable comeback! To then go on continuing her success by getting casted alongside models Daphne Groeneveld and Mariacarla Boscono in the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 campaign, proved that De Brauw was here to stay!
Just a few days after, she was spoiled with campaign offers, from Chanel, Lanvin and Prada to Versace and Giorgio Armani, De Brauw became the androgenic dream of the fashion industry, a dream everyone wanted a piece of!
Her face has graced an outstanding amount of magazines covers over the past few years, besides her Vogue covers, she’s also been seen on Love, Numéro, V magazine and her most recent cover being the December 2013 issue of Marie Claire.
Not to mention the incredible fashion shows she’s been a part of including Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Chanel, Stella McCartney and Givenchy. And to top it all off she got the amazing privilege to appear on David Bowie’s cover for his ‘The stars (are out tonight)’ 2013 single, as one of the stars alongside Iselin Steiro, Tilda Swinton, Andrej Pejic and David Bowie himself.
