WE CHAT TO LOCAL MODEL
WINNER OF THE PHOTOGRAPHIC
MODEL OF THE YEAR AT THIS
YEAR’S PERTH FASHION FESTIVAL.
q. How long have you been based
in New York and what do you love
about living there?
a. I have been based in New York officially as of this year. I have
been going in and out of the States for the past two and a half
years. But now I know I’m based there because I have my own
toaster in my apartment! I love New York because no matter how
long ago you saw someone, you are bound to reunite in New York
– it’s a city that brings people from all over the world together. It
puts you all on the same playing field.
q. How often do you get to come back to Perth
and what do you miss about your hometown?
a. I get to come back home about twice a year. Christmas is a
definite. It unfortunately has become less and less as the years
pass. What I miss most about Perth is the isolation. It’s so far
away from the rest of the world that it has kept its beauty. I know
without a doubt every time I go home the water will be as blue,
and the people will be having a beer watching the sunset after
work. I miss knowing the beach is 100 metres away and that it still
will be in two weeks time!
q. Favourite moment/highlight in your career so far?
a. My career highlights are making the cover of Italian Elle and
shooting the DKNY jeans campaign with Rachael Bilson from OC.
q. What was your most recent job?
a. My most recent job is the one I’m currently on as I write this.
I just finished getting my hair and makeup done. I’m in Liverpool
working for 14 days straight. It’s for the highest-selling web
clothing company in England – Littlewoods. And just before I left
New York I worked for DKNY online.
q. Who are your favourite designers?
a. My favourite designers at the moment would have to be
Gucci, Alexander Wang and Balmain.
q. Why do you love modelling?
a. I love modelling because I can embody someone I am not, a
character in a story that is not usually me. It gives me the chance
to tap into different eras and styles that many people could not
even imagine at such a young age.
q. What does the future hold?
a. That question can only be answered in time. That is why it is
the future. I take every week and every day as it comes because
my life is always so unplanned. It’s even hard to say what I will be
doing tomorrow because with one phone call or email I could be
on a plane. But, in 10 years, I hope to have my own beach shack
on the coast and lovely, warm friends and family around me daily.
q. What are three fashion essentials that you can’t live without?
a. I can’t live without my Aunty Chantal Vanderhaeghen’s beauty
range called Franc. Her moisturisers and face mists are my comfort
at the end and start of a day. I also can’t live without my vintage
real leopard fur winter jacket and my mother’s 30-year-old metal
belt – that has now changed from gold to silver because it has
been worn to death.
Perth models are hot. Enough said. We find out who’s
doing what on the national and international stage
