    Freshly served from a process that has some physical effect - such as printing (which, depending on the process, can leave the paper warm or damp): This leaflet came to my desk fresh off the presses.

    You can use fresh with other prepositions:

    fresh from the market

    fresh out of the sea


    ... others, probably.

    'Fresh from her first experience as a model at a fashion show'. The writer probably chose 'off' because of the runway, but a debut is something people are fresh from.
