Marique Schimmel Wistful, Haunting Nude


Dutch model Marique Schimmel plunges into the most daring photo spread of her young career with a series of artistic nudes photographed by Nick Dorey for Twin, a UK fashion magazine.

Schimmel, 22, who was born in Enkhuizen, Noord-Holland, the Netherlands, began modeling in 2010.

She’s considered a “newcomer” in the fashion industry but she’s already made significant inroads on the runway and in fashion editorials. She landed her first cover in 2011 for Marie Claire Italy and broke through with two more covers last year: Australia’s Russh magazine and Vogue Russia.

Dorey also photographed her for the Australian glossy, Russh #43.

At 5’10” tall, she’s ready-made for the runway and walked in the Ready to Wear, Spring/Summer 2011 shows for Alexander McQueen, Costume National, Elie Saab, Hakaan, Paul & Joe and Roland Mouret.

She’s worked Ready to Wear Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter shows every year since then. Last year she also modeled Haute Couture, Spring/Summer, for Basil Soda and Giambattista Valli.

Last year she broke into the elite list of “Top 50 Models” on fashion website, placing No. 49. Not bad for a newcomer.

In her Twin photo shoot, Naomi Miller handled styling and Tina Outen and Georgina Graham handled hair and make-up respectively. Her nudes are haunting and wistful.
