Jodoigne, Belgium native Yumi Lambert was discovered upon visiting an agency in nearby Brussels. Lambert, an up-and-coming runway super star, walked over thirty shows during the most recent prêt-à-porter collections, including Christian Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Prada, Miu Miu, Yohji Yamamoto, Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs, Bottega Veneta, Jil Sander, Ralph Lauren, and Alexander Wang, among others.
Lambert received her big break courtesy of a Chanel campaign during the Spring 2013 season, the first Belgian model to be captured by Lagerfeld for the brand. Additional Lamerbert-led campaigns include Hermès, Orla Kieley, Hache, Benetton, Peter Pilotto for Target, Ter et Bontine, and Gap.
Mario Testino captured Lambert for a special Comme des Garçons collection story in Vogue Japan, Peter Lindbergh photographed her for Vogue Italia, and she has graced the covers of Twin, and Jalouse magazines. Select editorial features include Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, CR Fashion Book, Wonderland, Self Service, and four issue of Vogue China.
