How did you get started?

I was scouted on the street by a new company in Sweden called Global Model Scouting, which scouts models and exposes them to agencies all over the world. My first job was for a Swedish brand called D-brand where I ran around in the woods an early (cold!) morning for their new sports collection.

If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing right now?

Probably being stressed out over which university to choose and planning on a trip somewhere with my friends before I would start studying again!


What designers would you most like to work for if you haven’t already?

There are so many talented designers I would love to work with so the list would be too long. But to mention some, I love Swedish Acne and the Victoria Secret fashion show is something else.

What excites you the most, runway or editorial?

I have a lot more experiences so far with editorials but I did my first shows this year at MBFW in Stockholm and I loved it as well! But I think my answer has to be editorials because of the story and hard work you complete as a team.


Describe the industry in three words:

Exciting, changeable and creative.

What has been your favourite moment so far in your career?

I think when I made an editorial for French Grazia in Paris. I did so many crazy things on set, from African dancing to being a chicken, all in amazing clothes inspired by an ethnic theme. It was so much fun!

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?

I always wanted to be able to fly. Think of all the views and how incredible easy it would be getting everywhere. No more sore feet haha!

Guilty pleasure:

Liquorice chocolate. The combo of salt and sweet is amazing. You have to try it if you haven’t!
