Kitchener, Ontario native Alana Zimmer is having a stellar runway season. This wide-eyed beauty has come a long way since she was discovered at an East Side Mario’s. Bursting onto the international fashion scene, Zimmer walked for over 50 designers in her debut season, Spring 2007.

During the Fall 2011 shows at New York Fashion Week, the former FLARE cover girl opened for Nicole Miller, Elie Saab and, most noteably, Marc Jacobs. We also spotted her at Thakoon, Prabal Gurung, Peter Som, JasonWu, Nicole Miller and Derek Lam, at a host of hot London shows, including Christopher Kane and Erdem, and yesterday in Milan, covered in shearling at Gucci.
