Zuzanna Bijoch captured the attention of Miuccia Prada five years ago and has had a major impact on fashion since then for such brands as Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Valentino. She’s IM’s model to watch for the coming year.

She’s settled in New York City with a boyfriend who has nothing to do with fashion.

In a hint of her future plans, she’s been studying economics between modeling gigs, including an internship in the finance department at Tom Ford.

Bijoch, 22, was born in Katowice, Poland, and gained notice when she was just 13 after winning a D’vision and Bravo Girl modeling contest.

She signed with Next Models the same year and spent time gaining experience in Japan.

She debuted as a 16-year-old in the fall Georges Chakra couture show in Paris and also walked for Lee Young Hee.

In 2011, Miuccia Prada signed her to an exclusive contract. She vaulted in the top 20 rankings of the world’s Top 50 Models the same year.

She’s walked in shows for 50 top brands and has been featured in editorial campaigns in V magazine, Love magazine, Dazed & Confused, Elle, Numéro, Vogue Mexico, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour.

She landed the cover of Marie Claire, France, last August to show off late summer beachwear.

The spread was shot in Rio de Janeiro by Nick Hudson, with styling by Anne-Sophie Thomas.

She’s wearing an Acne Studios top and Paul & Joe bikini set for the cover. Designs by Louis Vuitton, Tommy Hilfiger and Chloe are featured.

Check out her photos.
