Does being based in New York — where streetwear brands are plentiful — work to your advantage when booking jobs?
Living in New York has definitely been an advantage for me when booking jobs. It has provided access to so many amazing brands, clients and magazines. I also think the constant visibility from living in a walkable city like New York can provide opportunities that may not be possible anywhere else.
How do you feel about falling into the unofficial category of official female streetwear/menswear model? Is it a role which developed in itself or something you or your agency set out for from the beginning of your career?
That is quite the contradictory title that I am both officially and unofficially flattered by. Haha! Thank you! I think that role stems from some brands’ appreciation of my personal style.

LOOKBOOK.nu has inspired this series that is based on the relationship between a blogger and their photographer. With the rise of street fashion and everyone thriving to get known or popular for their style daily through media such as Tumblr and Lookbook.nu, it is great that this series is created to get a closer look into those people’s lives. The series is based out of Los Angeles, focusing on a girl named Hannah who enters the online fashion blogging world and it follows her experiences from that. Take a look at the first episode called ‘Look Closer’, where Hannah meets her fashion photographer, Mark, but is faced with his ex-muse trying to win back his services. Very interesting and creative series. We will bring you the second episode when it releases on April 8th.
