There is almost no oxygen left to breathe in the wee hours that precede New York Fashion Week, but that hasn’t prevented me from delivering an important model profile on one of Paul Rowland‘s newest models to join his image board. Meet Beatriz Saladich, 5’10″ (178 cm) 18-year-old from Barcelona who is in town for the F/W 11 shows. This first year university architecture student comes to Ford via View Management of Barcelona, where she debuted last July at 080 Barcelona S/S 11.

Last week I announced this interview would go live Tuesday, but alas it has been pushed ahead one day early to accommodate an already congested Fashion Week F/W 11 schedule.

When I requested an interview with Ford Men’s Ethan James it was with the knowledge that it would be on the same day that he was flying in from Paris. Not sure about you, but there’s at least a couple dozen things I’d rather do after an eight hour trans-Atlantic flight than speak on camera to the Ford Models Blog. Undaunted by the prospect of facing the agency’s in-house hack, Ethan, ever the consummate professional, duly accepted the interview request and answered with aplomb all that was asked of him.
