Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blyth was discovered after she missed university orientation, and stumbled into a modelling agency by chance. For six months, she modelled steadily, mostly test-shoots and in showrooms, and was eventually sent abroad to walk the international runway collections. She received her big break upon appearing in a Balenciaga show, her first-ever runway show, a major coup for the unusually petite model—she measures in at 5’7”; She also walked for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel. Shortly thereafter, Northwood-Blyth booked her first-ever advertising campaign, the relaunch of the Calvin Klein’s CK One fragrance, photographed by Steven Meisel.
Northwood-Blyth has appeared on the covers of Vogue Japan, Elle Australia, Marie Claire Italy, Grazia, Glamour, V Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar Australia and Spain, Oyster, and French Revue des Modes. In addition to the aforementioned, select editorial features include Vogue Australia, CR Fashion Book, Russh, W, and i-D magazines. Her clients include Ralph Lauren, Cartier, H&M, Realisation Par, Longines, Aje, Net-a-Porter, Zimmerman and Mango.
Bambi is an ambassador for and devotes a lot of her time working with Beyond Type 1, a not-for-profit organization working to change what it means to be living with Type-1 diabetes.
