In the course of my 15 years as a model, I have had the privilege of being represented by many of the biggest agencies worldwide, which helped me to build a successful career in the most competitive fashion markets. Starting in all the European capitals, I eventually moved to New York where I have been based for the past 8 years.
Working as a model is a privilege in many ways as well as a responsibility because of the exposure we get. That is why, a few years back, I started educating myself about sustainability in fashion. Education has always been important to me and having graduated with a Masters Degree in Political Science during my early years as a model, I knew how to educate myself about fast-fashion and its impact. And, most importantly, how we can help change it.
In addition, I started to get active within the community and tried to meet with as many empowering people that I could. I joined the ranks of Remake, a non-profit fighting to change fashion as a force for good, Model Activist - a community of mission-driven models, and Role Models Management - the ethical agency I’m proud to be signed with.
Having recognized a growing demand and awareness for more sustainable wardrobe choices, I finally decided to launch an idea that has been my dream for years - an affordable luxury vintage store with carefully curated pieces from all over the world, The Vintage Riot. I offer sustainable styling and production services and my recent work includes numerous publications in L'Officiel or campaigns for local designers. I hope that by sharing my own discoveries and journey by using my platforms I may help other consumers make better, more informed decisions and ultimately contribute to a fairer and more sustainable environment.
