How discovered:
Facebook. Here’s one more reason why I love social media.

Favorite things:
Photography and Travelling. I want to see the world, learn new things and collect some great memories. I am not here to live a boring life.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Ask my friends, they make my playlists. I just press play. I am such a loser when it comes to music, never up to date.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I just started watching Black Mirrors. it’s mindblowing.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I’ve been very into Rick Owens, Opening Ceremony & Givenchy lately.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I just finished my Photography study and always knew that I wanted to do something fashion related, I will definitely take a moment to learn more about fashion photography and focus on that in the future.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I love watching the moon and writing down my thoughts on life and stuff.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I can’t even describe how great the atmosphere was at the Vetements SS16 show. I met so many inspiring people. Moments like that are the reason why I enjoy what I do. Shooting with Viviane Sassen for Acne was also very exciting since she’s one of my favorite photographers.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Antwerp is a place where you can just wander the streets and still experience lots of cool stuff.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
When I was a little girl I used to take my mom’s Gucci bag and pretend that I am on the catwalk, that little dream stayed with me. And of course it would be lit to do something for my favorite designers.

Place you would love to visit:
Tokyo, simply because I’ve never been there and even tho I keep hearing so much about the city, I still can’t form an idea of how it is to actually be there.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Helmut Newton, there’s a major exhibition of his work in Amsterdam till September, I guess it’s about time for a weekend getaway.
