"It is important to have a unique and cohesive collection to bring a successful message to buyers, marketers and clients."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself.

I participated in talent shows since I was 12 years old. I performed in most of the catwalks we did at school. I was in charge of the art direction and the styling.

How did you prepare for a career in styling?

First you have to define and understand your style. Once you know your favorite colors, prints and patterns you start dressing people. It’s all about gathering ideas to create the right look and find the best outfit for your clients.

How do you stay updated on the current trends?

I like to read about different topics. I believe you can find inspiration anywhere. I’m subscribed to various fashion news sites and I read print magazines, I also enjoy watching runway shows on YouTube.

How important is Fashion Week for you?

Fashion week is a great opportunity for any upcoming designer brand but you have to work hard to get there. It is important to have a unique and cohesive collection to bring a successful message to buyers, marketers and clients.

What is your dream job?

I would love to be a freelance fashion designer and work in a wide ocean view loft.

What are your plans for the future?

I see myself selling my women’s ready-to-wear collection all around the world.

Name the top three things in your styling kit that are must-haves.

Flat sandals, Kimono or cover up, Swimsuit.

Tell us your most unforgettable experience as a designer?

We were doing the models hair and makeup on the street nearby the beach when a random guy came by squealing tires so fast and loudly that all the dirt blew over us and we ended up retouching the model again.

Who is your favourite all-time designer?

Betsey Johnson. I love her feminine bold style. She mixes patterns and prints in a way that just works.

Any advice for the up-and-coming fashion stylists out there?

Break the rules.
