Mary Rubin

1. What or who inspired you to model?
I started dreaming of becoming a model when I was in middle school, but I have always been inspired by the great supermodels. Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss have always been incredibly inspiring for me.

2. If you had the chance to meet your favourite supermodel, who would that be?
Hands down, Kate Moss. She is effortlessly cool. She oozes confidence, and I really strive for that.

3. Do you remember your first gig, if so what was it?
I modelled for Lark and Sparrow Boutique, where I worked at the time. The pictures were put up around the store, and when I would work, customers would notice. It was embarrassing and amazing all at once!

4. As a model do you prefer editorial work or runway?
I can’t choose! With editorial, you have much more time to understand the goal and get to work with everyone very closely. Runway is very fast paced and exciting. The adrenaline rush I get from walking runway is insane, and I really enjoy meeting the other girls.

5. If you could pick one designer to model for, who would it be and why?(runway or editorial)
Elie Saab. His designs are dreamy! I love wearing gowns, even if its just for 15 minutes.

6.What is your favourite part of Vancouver Fashion Week? If you haven’t taken part before, what are you looking forward to most?
The most exciting part is your time on the runway. It’s brief, but so thrilling.
