Ilva Heitmann, 19 from Hamburg, with striking red hair and ice blue eyes, was scouted over two years ago but only began modelling two seasons ago.
Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for German Vogue and walking for Diane Von Furstenberg, Mulberry, Paul Smith and Amanda Wakeley AW11, Ilva’s had a great start to her career! With the ability to pull off both a fierce and soft mysterious look means Ilva has all bases covered and we’re sure to see a lot more of her this year!
