Vogue Model Dead at Age 28

The global fashion industry is mourning the loss of a rising Australian model, Sian Scale, who passed away at the age of 28, as confirmed by her family. Scale, a Melbourne native, had an international career that spanned major fashion capitals including London, New York, and Paris. Her life was tragically cut short this week at the Peter McCallum Center, located near Melbourne’s central business district, due to a rare and incurable form of cancer.

Scale’s career was marked by collaborations with renowned fashion houses such as Marc Jacobs, Burberry, and Chanel. She was represented by Chadwick, a leading Australian modeling agency. Her family described her as a determined and strong individual who navigated the most challenging year of her life with grace, acceptance, optimism, and vulnerability.

Despite her struggle with cancer, Scale never questioned her circumstances, according to her family. They remembered her as a generous, loving, kind, fun, adventurous, and modest individual. Born and raised in Mansfield, approximately 124 miles northeast of Melbourne, Scale was equally comfortable on a farm and on the fashion runway. Her family fondly recalled an instance when she transitioned seamlessly from a camping trip to the Melbourne Fashion Festival.

Scale’s approachable and easygoing nature, coupled with her natural beauty and generous spirit, quickly established her as a promising model in Australia. Her global modeling career included appearances in prestigious publications such as Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Chadwick modeling agency expressed their grief over Scale’s passing, describing her as a bright and unique light who unapologetically marched to her own beat. They acknowledged that her loss would be deeply felt, but her remarkable work in pictures would immortalize her forever.

In her memory, Scale expressed a wish for people to donate blood. She believed it to be the gift of life and a meaningful way to honor her legacy.
