Australian model Dempsey Ella Stewart was born in 1992 in Perth, Australia. After moving frequently around Western Australia for much of her young life, Dempsey was eventually discovered by a scout from the Perth Fashion Festival one day while she was out shopping with her friends. From then forward, Dempsey has enjoyed a large degree of success in the modeling industry. When she is not modeling, Dempsey enjoys spending her time taking photos, knitting, drawing clothing designs and sewing. She hopes to one day be able to take her drawing and sewing skills to the next level and dabble further in her interest of clothing design. She claims to be a very creative individual with many ideas for various types of apparel. Along with this, Dempsey has also achieved a black belt in taekwondo.
After traveling to Japan to begin her modeling career, Dempsey soon signed with the agency Wilhelmina in 2011. In February of the same year, Dempsey made her debut, opening the fall Richard Chai Love show in New York. It was a stellar debut that really allowed her to launch head-first into her modeling career. For the rest of the month, Dempsey was quite active, walking in a large number of shows that included the Prada, Marni, Roberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten, and Chole as well as walking for Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Topshop Unique. In September 2011, she closed the spring Rebecca Taylor show in New York.
Along with an impressive spurt of shows, Dempsey also appeared in a good number of editorials and magazines in the year 2011. These include Dazed & Confused, Russian Vogue, and Wonderland. Along with this, Dempsey was featured as a face to watch in 2011 by WWD. However, Dempsey has been quiet as of late, appearing in very few editorials and walking a relatively few amount of high profile shows. This, however, has allowed Dempsey some of the time she needs to enjoy her other hobbies and areas of interest.
Dempsey Stewart says that if she were not continuing her career in modeling she would most certainly pursue a career in her second passion—clothing design. Along with having a love for all things fashion, Dempsey claims that her biggest joys in life come from her supportive family and friends and that their support is one of the main things that has allowed her to achieve the success she has been awarded with. Though she has been a little quiet as of late, there is still much to expect from this Australian model’s young career.
