The Australian Girl
I booked a flight to London and lived there for a year. I was lucky to work with many talented creatives. During London Fashion week I walked for Chinese couture designer ‘Hu Sheguang’. The show was at the ‘National History Museum’ and was spectacular. The models and I wore very high platform shoes, full bustling dresses and tall feathered hats. One job I wore 30 outfits a day, for three days, and was photographed all round different London sites, from London Bridge to Kings Cross Station. I also had the opportunity to travel to other European countries for work, where I learnt about their languages and cultures. One of my favourite designers I walked for during Paris Fashion Week was ‘Zara Umrigar’. It was an amazing experience to open her show. I spent my summer modelling and chasing the sun.
My good friend Yavor, showed me around his home country Bulgaria. It was very exotic for me; stunning landscapes, beautiful food and friendly people. I enjoyed learning about Bulgaria’s history. I befriended the locals and came in contact with the photographer Grozev. I was impressed with his portrait and fashion photography portfolio. We spent a day photographing and exploring Sofia.
I’m going back to Europe now, but this time for winter, can’t wait for what’s to come.
