We sat down with up-and-coming model and the fresh face of our new SS17 campaign, Lana. She filled us in on her favorite Instagram accounts to follow, fashion items she can’t live without and even admitted to how nervous she was for her first shoot with her agency.
Without further ado, here’s what she had to say. We suggest you get to know her before she rises to the top.
How did you start out?
I’ve been modeling for a few years now. I was scouted at the Move It music festival. I’m from Denmark and lived just outside Copenhagen which really influenced the way that I dress. I wear plenty of casual staples and light colors. My sister is a dancer and I sing. I used to do backing vocals for my dad’s band, Kid Creole, and the Coconuts.
What’s your most memorable career moment to date?
My first shoot with Select. It was so nerve-wracking. Luckily the people were lovely and helped me to feel comfortable.
If you could wear one item for a week, what would it be?
Who do you follow on Instagram?
Gigi Hadid is my go-to. Also, Beyonce.
Your local London haunt?
I live in Kent at the moment and spend a lot of time at the Housley School of Dance studios.
What pieced would you take home with you from the SS17 collection?
The floral dress (out in April). That’s on my shopping list.
