Andreja Pejic

biography

Nationality: Australia
Country of origin: Bosnia-Herzegovina
Andreja was born as "Andrej Pejic" to a Croatian
father and Serbian mother in Tuzla, Bosnia and
Herzegovina; left in the 90's with her family from
the war ravaged country eventually settling in
Melbourne Australia. At the Paris men’s shows in
June (2010), the then 19-year- old Andreja became
the symbol for fashion androgyny.



In January 2011, Andreja walked for Jean Paul
Gaultier in his men's show and for the January 2011
couture show, eventually appearing in the
Spring/Summer 2011 JPG campaign with Karolina
Kurkova. The same season, Andreja appeared in the
Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign. Named one of OUT
Magazine's 100 Most Compelling People of 2011. In
early 2014, Andreja underwent sex reassignment
surgery and came out publicly in July 2014 as a
transgender woman, which marked her transition
from an androgynous model to a female model.
