Meet the Models ó Olivia Lefebre
How old are you?
Iím seventeen years old.
What agency are you with? Iím signed to Chic.
How long have you been signed to Chic for? Actually a few days. I came here on Monday from New Zealand... Iím here for a month and I came so that I was able to cast for Fashion Week.
Did you walk at New Zealand Fashion Week last year? What shows did you walk in? I did Trelise Cooper, Zambesi, Lonely Hearts...
I really liked the Zambesi show. It was really cool. Yeah, it had lots of fluro.
And with the Converse as well... So this is your first time at Australian Fashion Week? Yeah.
Do you know what to expect? Is it a bit bigger than New Zealand? Yeah, it is. Thereís lots more models. Itís way bigger but I think itís going to be good.
Do you have any friends here in Sydney yet? You only just got here, have you had the chance to meet any of the other girls? Well, Iíve met a couple of girls from New Zealand but weíll just have to wait and see.
Are you still in high school? This wouldíve been my last week in high school but I left high school to do modeling.
Were you parents supportive of that decision? Yeah, theyíre really supportive of me. They were the ones to actually push me to model.
Q&A Name: Olivia Lefevre Agency: IMG Paris Hometown: Auckland, New Zealand
What makes you angry? When people talk about modeling as an easy job. The money can be amazing but the job is far from easy. Where would you choose to go for a vacation? Spain or Greece; hot weather and amazing food! What do you like about this job? I look at going on trips as a way of exploring new cities and discovering places that I look forward to returning to. I love exploring street markets and finding good places to eat and drink. Even though itís hard being away from home, travelling the world for work can definitely be the highlight of this job.
The booker says
Olivia is a truly rare beauty, when we first met her in New Zealand her potential was obvious. She has a strong and classical beauty which combined with her positive and outgoing personality (not to mention the kind of skin that advertisers dream of) she is a truly exceptional new face to watch.
