What’s your background / nationality?
What were you doing before you started modelling?
Leading up to, and during my first year of modelling, I was quite focussed on completing High School. Like a lot of students, I had no idea what I wanted to do after graduating, and so after a talk with my careers advisor, she encouraged me to submit my photos to IMG. Got a call to come into the office and I've been signed with them ever since. Definitely want to return to uni at some point, but for now I am going to run with this incredible opportunity for as long as I can. Couldn't be happier!
What’s one thing you can’t live without?
I need at least one good book with me at all times to keep me sane. Perfect for train and bus trips getting around the city, as well as when waiting for castings, or even just when I need to relax after a particularly stressful day.
What’s in store for 2018 for Billie?
I’m excited for more opportunities to work with our extremely talented and hard working local designers, stylists and photographers, and very hopeful of getting the chance to walk for some of Europe’s fashion icons. Since signing with IMG I have been fortunate to work with some very well respected fashion designers such as Toni Maticevski, Lee Matthews and Karen Walker, and I'm really looking forward to see where the rest of the year will take me
Where is home?
I grew up on the beautiful NSW South Coast, raised with plenty of land to run around on and numerous animals to look after. While I may live in Sydney for work, that is still where my family is and where I feel most at home.
