Describe yourself in one word. Observant. What’s the first thing you do in the morning? I like to start my day with breakfast, usually Vegemite on toast, but I’ve dabbled in Marmite since living in the UK. Among your priorities, what’s the first between all? Happiness. What’s your source of inspiration? Working in the fashion industry, there’s inspiration all around if you keep your eyes open.

Milan or Paris? Paris. How do you think fashion can contribute to the environment? Fashion is one of the biggest polluters for the environment, so I think consumers need to be more conscious of their spending habits, stop buying fast fashion and start looking towards second-hand clothing. I also think companies need to take bigger steps in improving sustainability, by looking at avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and incorporating green energy into the production process of clothing. Are you scared that time will take away your beauty? I’m really not worried about that. ”If I hadn’t become a model…” I want to say I’d be studying business, but before this opportunity came, I had no clue what I wanted to be.

There’s a travel ticket on the table, to where do you wish it was? Japan. I still haven’t gone, but I’d love to. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Hopefully, I’ll be living in the UK and still working in this industry, either through styling or another pathway. Time will tell… What’s the last movie you saw? ‘It: Chapter Two’. What’s your favourite song at the moment? ‘Sunflower, Vol. 6’ by Harry Styles.
