› When and how were you scouted?
I walked into an agency in Düsseldorf when I turned 14 after I got a book called “Models”, with a detailed description of a model’s everyday life and signed with them. My actual career in this business started 4 years later after I’d finished school and went to London for my first on-stay, with a new and international agency, where a really important casting director found me and booked me on the Prada SS2016 Show as an exclusive girl. That’s how I started my runway career.
› What it has been your biggest achievement in the industry?
Walking Prada SS16 Exclusive, Gucci the season after and my third season I opened with Burberry, which was the first time my new mother agency - Linden Staub in London - booked one of their girls there.
