How is 2016 shaping up for you so far?

So far it has been lovely! It's been great to get back into the swing of things and I have been lucky enough to have worked with some really cool photographers. I've shot in some interesting places including the Lake District, it was such a stunning location!

How excited are you about LFW 2016? 

So excited! It's always a crazy couple of weeks, but I love the buzz around it, meeting all the designers and checking out next seasons fashions :)

What are you most looking forward to?

I'm really excited to try on all the clothes, and see what's coming for AW16. Sometimes we don't find out until quite late on which shows we're working, so I love the surprise around that!

Who is your one to watch this season?

Mary Benson! I did her presentation last season, and I absolutely adored the theme of heartbreak. The whole team from clothes, to make-up, to hair was so creative and animated. I'd never seen anything like it before, so I'm really excited to see what she comes up with this season

There are so many advantages to being a model, and you get to catch a glimpse of all the new trends. What would you personally like to see coming out of LFW? 

I LOVE jackets and funky trousers, so I'd love to see some over sized pieces to inspire me for next winter!

We all know how important it is for a model to be prepared, but can you fill us in on those all essential items you carry in your kit?

My absolute can't do without is my Blink-Brow eyebrow brush (because I spend more time brushing my eyebrows than my hair!!!). I also make sure I've always got my staples like Vaseline and Weleda hand cream because it is COLD out there!

What has been the highlight of your career so far? 

I was lucky enough to shoot Uniqlo's Christmas campaign and commercial, and they flew us to Bulgaria for the shoot which was so much fun! The team were great and I made some really good friends. It was an amazing experience.

Who is your ultimate style icon?

My Grandad! Most of what I wear now is what he used to wear back in the day - it’s like a family antiques roadshow!!

Favourite Designer?

KTZ, because it's my initials backwards...! Lol

What couldn't you live without?

My sketch book and pencils

Who is your biggest inspiration and why? 

My Mum - she's an incredible lady :)

What are you obsessed with right now? 

Bacon... It's bacon me crazy!! (nailed it)

Whats currently on your playlist? 

As I write this I'm listening to GoGo Penguins's 'Man Made Object'

What makes you smile?

Sunshine

Can you sum yourself up in three words?

Zany, Outgoing, Energetic... oh hey, it spells my name!

Whats your most recent purchase?

Dr Marten's Capper Boots.. Vintage Smoooooooooth.... breaking them in isn't easy!

Tell us a secret…

A secret wouldn't be a secret if I told you ;)
