If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
My Grandmother, she died when I was 4. Mum tells me the best stories of her coming to our house at 8am on Sunday mornings, on the way to the chiropractor wearing a ball gown and holding a bottle of champagne. She seemed to have such a great spirit, I would have loved to have known her as an adult
Who or what inspires you most?
I'm inspired by people who are passionate about what they do and go out of their way to make things happen. In the fashion industry I love Diana Vreeland, Grace Coddington and Iris Apfel, all women who weren't/aren't afraid to go against the grain, push new ideas and be dreamers
Where is home?
Home is where my suitcase is
How do you find the modelling industry in Paris compared to your hometown Sydney?
I never modeled much in Sydney so it's hard for me to compare properly but I guess i'd say I find Sydney more relaxed and commercial and Paris is more avant garde with it's historic fashion houses.
Tell us one pro and one con of being a model in 2016?
I find social media is both the pro and the con. With social media we have the ability to promote ourselves how we see fit and we have direct access to amazing talent in the industry that previously we would have had to rely on our agency to try and contact. So I guess there's bit more control and self power to the model which is really cool. However social media has also created more competition for jobs since people who may previously not have been agency signed models, but are great at self promotion and social media marketing are offered jobs from clients etc
