1. What or who inspired you to model?
I never seriously considered it a path until my best friend Emily started joking to me about submitting my photo to an agency. She was extremely supportive and kept bugging me until I finally got around to emailing Coultish, and now i’m very grateful for the amazing opportunity!
2. If you had the chance to meet your favourite supermodel, who would that be?
I think a typical answer from most people would be Coco Rocha. Albeit a somewhat cliche choice, I think I’d love to meet her. Mainly, if anything, because of her influence in the fashion community and her amazing work dedicated to minimizing the exploitation of under-age models.
3. Do you remember your first gig, if so what was it?
I’ve been modelling for a few years, so the first few gigs somewhat blend together in my memory. I think it was working with developing photographers at the Western Academy of Photography, which was a lot of fun.
4. As a model do you prefer editorial work or runway?
I don’t have as much experience on a runway, so my go-to answer would be editorial work. It’s an amazing experience working with a team of talented people in order to bring an idea or a concept to life.
5. If you could pick one designer to model for, who would it be and why?(runway or editorial)
I’d have to say Charlotte Ronson. Not just because her collections are fantastic, but because she is such an influential figure in both the fashion community and among women.
6.What is your favourite part of Vancouver Fashion Week? If you haven’t taken part before, what are you looking forward to most?
I’m mostly looking forward to meeting the people. It’s really fascinating learning about others’ backgrounds, so to hear straight from models, designers, producers and the like would be great. The experience of walking in VFW itself also seems extremely rewarding.
