What were you doing when scouted? Just working

Describe your style: I’d say that it’s a bit bohemian with a little bit of hippie/flowy stuff.

Fashion trends you hate: I’m not a fan of super-high-waisted jeans and rompers.

Fashion influences: A lot of my art is inspired by nature so I choose a lot of natural hues, which influences my style.
