Which modelling agency are you represented by? South Coast Kidz
Why did you decide to start modelling? From a young age, I was extremely interested in fashion and design. I collected photos of interior designs I liked and I made paper outfits for my dolls. I also really liked dressing up in bright colours – I feel I can express myself in this way – and taking photos of myself posing in front of the camera. When I was 10 I persuaded my mum to book me a professional photoshoot to boost my confidence. This was so much fun for both of us that we did several more photoshoots and soon after I got accepted by my first agency.
What is the best part about being a model? All the lovely people you get to work with and learn from, trying out a wide selection of cool clothes plus the amazing photos I get to be a part of.
Which has been your favourite shoot to date? My favourite was a vintage Dior photoshoot for Creators Magazine. I loved the style of the dresses and the matching set design as well as how beautiful the pictures turned out.
If you could work with any brand which would be top on your list? I like the style of Dior, and also Gucci as their adverts are bright and look like they would be fun to be a part of in the modelling team.
Which is your top fashion magazine/blog? I regularly watch the British Vogue YouTube channel.
Which are your favourite fashion brands? This varies as I like so many styles, but I always like Prada accessories. I have found Zara clothes really comfortable when I have worn them for photoshoots.
