Premier model, Leomie Anderson is most recognizable from reality series, The Model Agency. One thing you may not know about the young model is her sense of humor and charm that captivated everyone in the office.
I was discovered:
Firstly when I was 14 standing at the bus stop coming home from school. My friends were like “that guy is looking at you” but I thought nothing of it. Next thing I know I had a card for Premier but I didn’t follow it up. It wasn’t until I was down Oxford Street a little while later someone else from the agency scouted me too so I thought “okay, I’ll give this a go.” I called, had a test shoot and here I am.
Before I was modelling I was:
In school and just doing average teenage stuff I suppose. I was thinking about pursuing fashion journalism, which I find funny because I then got scouted so I’ve ended up working in the fashion industry but in a side I didn’t expect to. When I finish school I’m going to give modelling a go full time and see what happens.
When I’m not modelling I’m:
Revising at the moment, as I’m doing my exams. When I do have spare time I like playing Wii fit and watching Come Dine With Me with all my friends. Well it’s more like Come Dine At Mine because I have a BBQ so I supply the BBQ and my mates bring the food. Unless it’s my turn to cook! Oh and painting my nails, I’ve got this new Barry M Crack nail vanish. Love it!
Fashion Week shows I walked in last season:
I didn’t do many as I was concentrating on my college work but I did do Topshop, Issa, Roksanda Ilincic and closed for Holly Fulton. Next season I want to do all four show seasons including Milan. Exciting but scary!
Show I would love to walk in:
Vivienne Westwood. Her shows are lively and I love all the clothes. It’s also because I like her as a person. I always see her on the underground or riding her bike!
Photographer I would like to work with:
Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. I’m interested to see how they work together on a shoot and I really like their pictures.
My favourite item of clothing is:
Trainers! I can’t live without them, I would die! I hate high heels- I only own one pair, which I got from the agency.
A person in fashion that inspires me is:
I really admire Katie Grand because she went to Central Saint Martins and she has done a number of things over the years not just stuck to the one.
Best fashion moment so far:
Opening Loewe and walking for Marc Jacobs. I was so scared and excited, all at the same time.
