Emma Balfour

The Gentlewoman: As one of fashion's most sought-after models throughout the 90s, Emma Balfour conjured a waifish new mood, yet with an indefinable strength all her own. When asked why she chose to slow an international fashion career in order to return to her home in Australia, the model says: "I'd been away for what felt like a lifetime and my life was stupidly busy, so I decided to pack it all in and be somewhere where I could just be me."
