True talent needs no introduction. It's an unforgettable walk down a runway; a striking glance towards a flickering camera; an undeniable focus in a crowded room. It's perfect harmony, synergy, a balance of energy. Just the right dose of sugar and spice. It's Hannah Wick, Apuol Jacobs, Mimi Manguy, Tiama Tilbee and Tatyana Perry – the faces gracing the cover story of our Taste issue.
These fresh faces are in demand and they're not here to waste any time. Wise beyond their years and more than prepared for what's to come, they signify a new wave of models making their mark down under and beyond. Donning Tiffany & Co. jewels like a second skin, they know good taste and boy do they own it.
