I began modeling when I lived in Queensland and it was a great way to build my confidence and learn a lot about the fashion industry. I didn’t ever really see myself heading in that direction when I was at school – I had terrible skin and the thinnest eyebrows in the world – I am surprised I didn’t slice people’s faces off with them.

I was signed by a good agency in Brisbane after going in to see them in 2009. I can still picture what I wore: Dotti Jeans, Insight singlet and horrible green kitten wedges – definitely not an off-duty model look to replicate. I booked my first cover shoot with Style Magazine the next week and was terrified to shoot it because it was a bikini shoot and I had never posed before. From that shoot onwards I decided that the modeling world might be a fun one to be a part of and it has been a fun journey in the last few years (yes even the sides of the industry I hate). I have since dropped my agency and self manage clients because my blog is my full-time job now and it was beginning to get tricky with the whole commission thing and what jobs I could book on my own through my blog. It may be something I revisit later on, but at the moment I love managing my own work.

Last week I had the pleasure of walking for adidas in their A/W15 show. I brought JD along to get some photos so you could see an exclusive look backstage and of the show.

It was such a fun afternoon / night and it’s always so great working with the adidas team!!
