Time for another weekly installment of #SUNDAYSTORIES!
During a casting early in my career, I went to go see the House of Dior in Paris. As I entered the room there was a row of people that sat behind a long table, I handed them my book and then showed them my walk. Everything seemed to go OK, and on my way out I noticed what I could only describe as this debonair looking pirate sitting in the corner of the room by the door, he was smirking at me and had his arms crossed. I looked back around the room as if to say “Am I the only one who see’s this full on pirate here?!”. I was so enamoured with this man’s look that I called my mom back in Canada right after and said, “So… there was this pirate at Dior, and I can’t believe how fabulous he looked”. To cut a long story short, I got the job and it was only at the Dior show that I realized, the pirate was John Galliano himself. This would be my first of many shows with Galliano, a man who constantly reinvents his look in the most fantastic way. He recently became the creative director for Maison Margiela and I’m so excited to see how he reinvents fashion and himself yet again.
Sometimes I can’t believe some of my own early modeling experience. Keep an eye on my blog for weekly #SUNDAYSTORIES!
