We all got to witness the magic that is Balenciaga’s fall 2022 couture show. With the likes of Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman and Dua Lipa walking the runway, it was inevitable to hear about what was supposed to be the spectacle of the season. But in the midst of a sea of very famous faces is a rising star: Inti Wang.
The Colombian-Norwegian model and visual artist was honored to wear one of the huge evening gowns that went viral during the second half of the show. “Demna made the dress especially for me, which makes it so much more special,” said Wang Vogue. “However, at first I accidentally stepped on the tulle and realized I had to bring the dress or I would fall. But in the end it all worked out and walking in the same size after Naomi Campbell — or * ‘mom’ – * was also a moment in itself. “
This is not Wang’s first game with Balenciaga. In 2019, the model was searched by the brand on Instagram for its social content. This then ended with an invitation to the spring 2020 show. Since then, Wang has been involved in countless Balenciaga projects. “I did it all – in a music video, a video game, a blizzard, a couture store… It was crazy,” says Wang. “For my first show, I wore a suit and in this latest collection, I wore the best, most beautiful dress of my dreams — it feels full and completely grand. represent me as a person.”
Growing up in a house where both parents were artists, self-expression was encouraged. “My earliest memory of fashion is with my mother going to a Red Cross charity store. I found this purple puffy satin dress and I tried it on with crystal princess heels, which is funny because it’s so similar to what I wore to the Balenciaga show ,” Wang laughed. “I was seven years old when it happened, and neither of my parents have ever asked me how I dressed since.”
When asked what advice they would give an aspiring model today, Balenciaga’s muse giggled: “Aim high, but expect low.” The future is promising and we can’t wait to see what else Inti has in store for us.
