THE AJE TEE | $190

How did you fall into your career?

I was scouted when I was really young at a festival in the U.K. I signed to my first agency in London a couple of years later.

 

What is the best part about your job?

The travel. I’m so fortunate to have a career which takes me to places I would never have been able to see otherwise.

 

What has been the best photoshoot you have ever worked on?

I don’t know how to choose! I met one of my closest friends on an amazing job in Key West with Bruce Weber. I don’t know what I would have done without her since then. The job itself was beautiful, Bruce is so great to work with. It was monsoon season so we just ran about in the sea during storms and had loads of fun, there was 20+ models and everyone was cool. It never actually got released, so I’ve not seen one photo from that week but I really hope that I will be able to some day.

What are your top 5 style tips?

People should just wear what makes them feel good! I don’t think you should take tips from anyone else, it doesn’t matter what they think as long as you’re happy with what you’ve got on then who cares!!

 

What is the best thing you own?

A Polaroid that my mum took 25 years ago of my Dad and my oldest sister when she was a few months old.

 

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I don’t even know where I’ll be in five months, but in five years I’d like to have decided where I want to settle down. I don’t think I’ve found the right place for me yet, would love to be in the country. My sister’s an ideal house mate, but I think I just really need a dog. Anyway as long as I have a table big enough for all my family to fit around I’ll be happy.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I’m inspired by the people in my life, the places I go.

 

Who to you is aspirational?

If I end up as half the woman my Mum is then I’ll be pretty pleased.

 

What are your top 5 wardrobe staples?

Boots, denim skirt, roll neck, puffer jacket and colourful socks.

What was it like working with Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld?

It was amazing. I have worked with Karl a few times and he was absolutely lovely. We actually shot the Chanel Cruise S/S 2016 in his garden! He and Carine always make me feel so welcome in the Chanel family and I would love to work with them again.

 

What keeps you motivated?

My parents have worked really hard all their lives, they bought me up the same. I love my job, and I really enjoy working in general. So luckily I find it pretty easy to keep motivated!

 

If you could tell your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?

You’re not going to know these people in five years, so their opinion now really doesn’t matter.
