INSPIRING WOMAN : MEET LAINA FROM BRISBANE

 

I’m a model from Brisbane, Australia and have been represented by Tamblyn Models for almost three years. I love Runways and bridal shows and Photo shoots. My other interests are dancing and the Creative Arts as I’ve danced since I was three and love performing. 

Where is your favourite place to shop?  

At the moment it’s online but when I’m out I don’t really have a favourite place. I’m perfectly happy to go shopping and see what jumps out at me.Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. 

What is your favourite outfit to feel confident?   

I’m a bit of a shorts/jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. Being a model I’m usually dressing up for shoots or runways so it’s great to just kick back in comfort with no makeup and be ultra casual and be myself. I do love a cute little black dress and killer heels though! 

What is the worst fashion crime you can think of? 

Never been a fan of shoulder pads but I know they seem to be coming back into fashion! Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. 

What is your favourite brand and why?  

 I’m trying to stay away from fast fashion and buy more ethically made clothing and focus on Australian labels. 

Who is your fashion icon or inspiration?

I love Gigi Hadid and think she’s a great role model and mentor.

Why is fashion important to you?  

Fashion helps people to express themselves in their own unique way and me personally I feel more confident if I like the way I look or feel good and that’s important.

Do you have any advice to find a bargain? 

Research online before you shop! We have the luxury of having everything so accessible to us via the internet so there’s no harm in trying to find what you want at a cheaper price before you go out shopping.

Do you think fashion varies across cultures?  

Yes it certainly does and it should. It would be a very boring world if we all dressed and looked the same!

What is your favourite accessory and why?

 I have a pearl and gold bracelet that belonged to my Great Grandmother who passed a couple of years ago that I wear all the time. It’s very special to me.

Do you prefer summer or winter fashion and why? 

I love summer and we have such amazing designers here in Australia that make gorgeous clothing to suit our climate.
