"I like clothes that are comfortable and low maintenance, so my style is usually pretty casual... and I love tights, so I can almost always be found wearing a pair," says student and part-time model Adaeze.
With a definite preference for garments with an earthy, bohemian or ethereal feel, Adaeze enjoys bargain hunting (and plus, she's living within the confines of a student budget!) and is always on the hunt for a good sale.
She is inspired by designers who reflect this style. Currently, she draws inspiration from Rodarte, a designer success story with two self taught sisters taking the fashion world by storm with a spectacular presentation in New York, Spring 2005. Look this label up and you'll see why!
She only recently began doing some modelling work which she enjoys.
"Modelling is fun and interesting. It's great to work with different designers and experience their take on modern day fashion and beauty," she says.
As for Adaeze's personal take on beauty? It's on the inside that matters just as much - if not more.
"Beauty is reflected in confidence and being comfortable in one's own skin. Here's a few quotes from Audrey Hepburn that truly captures what beauty is... For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone... I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls."
And that's why this part-time model is more than just a pretty face... and why people want to book her. Beauty and brains? Now that's a powerful combo!
