Ones to watch: meet the new crop of Ganni girls taking over the catwalk

The Copenhagen behemoth sent a brand new cast of faces down its AI-inspired runway to close out CPHFW SS24 – we slipped backstage to find the models that should be on your radar

Last week, CPHFW came to a close with the city’s crown jewel Ganni closing out a stellar week of new and established talent alike. Held in an old warehouse space in the centre of Copenhagen, the show saw our fave super Paloma Elsesser open the show in a warm embrace with an AI-programmed tree [yes you read that correctly], before she stormed down the runway 90s-style in a deep burgundy hooded number from her upcoming collab with the Scandi label.

Following in her footsteps came Klara Kristin of Gaspar Noé’s Love fame, who stepped out onto the catwalk in a slinky black number with matching kitten heels, before Dutch export Mona Tougaard strutted down the runway in a cosy cream knitted gown – the picture of cool, calm, and collected despite only arrrived backstage 15 minutes before the show kicked off.

Beyond attracting a bunch of stellar names to Denmark each season, Ganni has long pioneered a runway that felt representative of a diverse and eclectic Copenhagen. The Ganni Girls, handpicked by casting director Madeline Østilie, always feature a mix of models and multi-hyphenate creatives that range in size, colour, gender, and sexuality – usually making their debuts with the brand before going on to big things. In short: where Ganni girls go, others follow. 

At the SS24 show, Dazed went backstage in the midst of the madness to find the girls on that should be on your radar.


Though she’s only been modelling for less than a year, Dolly Baby has big aspirations. “I want to be the Kate Moss [of our generation],” the 20-year-old told us backstage. With her 47 tattoos, killer face, and brand recognition from the likes of Valentino and Iris Van Herpen, this French export has all the makings of a super.


Actor, presenter, and model, Emma Breschi is a triple threat.  A trailblazer in normalising different body types on the runway, when she isn’t busy as a UN change maker and documentary host, Breschi models for Westwood, Mulberry and Ester Manas.


Follow Chili Dia on TikTok and you’ll get a sense of her globetrotting travels and enviable style. Already a cover star [check her Vogue Scandinavia cover] an it-girl in her native Copenhagen, this model and creative is as red hot as her name suggests.


At the show, you couldn’t miss model Nina Marker, who danced down the runway to Shakira’s “Whenever, Wherever”, high-fiving the audience as she went.  Makes sense, given she’s racking up catwalk appearances at a wild pace: Marc Jacobs, Eckhaus Latta, and Moschino have all featured her in their shows. Fun fact, she was scouted riding the subway to McDonalds.
