That was about a year ago I got scouted by Francois, the photographer who is now represented by ART LIST. He found my profile on Instagram and as he is a good friend of Adrianna (my booker) he presented my profile to Rock Men. He thought that it would be the right agency for me.
What was your first modeling job?
My first shooting was for ID France with Hervé Lassïnce. It was a direct booking and we went all together to a small village in the south of France. I had so much fun, I love travelling!
I definitely can’t live without girls, I love them! Then I skate a bit, I make some graffiti. I study in a fashion school and during my holidays I go skiing. I have a lot of energy so I need to move all the time, travel a lot, my favorite directions are mountains where I feel happy and carefree.
What are you listening to at the moment?
I am listening to Wu Tang, Lunatic (you know, French, old school), Mobb Deep, Scred Connexion
Favorite movie, tv show:
I have no time for movies or TV shows. I am always outside hanging out with friends. I like Al Pacino, Lords of Dogtown. And that’s it.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I really appreciate Vivienne Westwood, she is so punk. Raf Simon, Dior Homme. I do not use any special beauty products. My friends and clients really like my style but I buy all my clothes in second-hand shops.
What were you doing before modeling?
I am in fashion school with a very flexible schedule. I can study and model at the same time.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
The same thing as right now, fashion school. In the future I would like to be an art director or a fashion designer!
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I like people who don’t care about how they look and what other people think about them. I like PUNKS and especially their style!
Favorite modeling experience so far?
My favorite and exciting experience was a direct booking for AU JOUR LE JOUR show in Milan about a month ago! All the booking was really last minute and I got stuck at the airport in Paris because of missing travel papers. I had to go back home and take the earliest flight the next day. I arrived an hour before the show a bit tired but the atmosphere at the backstage was just amazing and gave me so much energy. This first time in Milan was so crazy, I will never forget it!
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I miss Parisian spots for skating (they are the best), French girls, and just Paris. I don’t know why but I am addicted to this city, Paris has something special that I can not express. I feel some kind of energy here, good vibes, something mysterious.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to work for Gucci, Vivienne Westwood and Encense magazine. DUST is my favorite magazine and I’d love to shoot for them again!
Place you would love to visit:
I need to visit Asia, especially Japan and not the big cities but just go and see some magic places, a bit lost, where is nothing else but nature, trees, animals.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Converse, Eminem’s Mockingbird, skate, and Lily Rose Depp. I hope that I will meet her one day!
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
My stepfather always says: never give up! You can think that this advice is common and not so original but it really helps me. I really believe that people can do whatever they want if they really try. Everything is possible!
