Hiya, today I have an interview with a special guest! Not only is she my best friend, she is an aspiring model. This is an interview with Rosie Sweeney about what its like to be a new, young model in Glasgow:
- What made you want to be a model?
-From a young age I watched Americas Next Top Model with my mum so I would say this is what brought it to my attention. Then since I had done a few fashion shows I realised it was something I enjoyed and decided to take it further.
- How did you start your journey?
-Around April last year I helped one of my mums friends out by modelling at her business events. She happened to be signed to the agency that I am now with and sent photos of me from that night. The agency then got in contact and called me in for an interview.
- Whats your favourite shoot/job?
-I definitely most enjoyed the fashion show for Saint Genevieve because I was able to meet other models through this.
- Is it something you’d want to do full time?
-Unless the opportunity were to arise for this to happen, I intend to keep it as a part time job as I am more interested in going into textile design in the long run.
- Whats the worst part?
-It is quite difficult to find work in Glasgow, sometimes it can feel although you work is not paying off.
- Whats the best part?
-I would say the fact that it has built up my confidence has been the best part. Also meeting other people through it is a big perk.
- Whats the next step?
-I am going to look into getting more and more test shoots over this year in order to give my folio more variety and hopefully this can take me further within the industry.
