" I love art illustration so much! It is amusing and inspiring to see how illustrators envision me, It is sometimes therapeutic !
When working with different designers, I enjoy to see the designer's illustration of the outfit I am wearing. I draw inspiration from the illustration by incorporating this vision in my runway performance!
My thoughts are "I am a model and my job IS to become their vision!" This is how I do my research and how I develop my character for most fashion shows!
Illustration has played a very important role for my stage character! This is what makes a great model to me! "
I ♥, respect and appreciate illustrated art!
(Merci à Debra, et Mina and Mikel Kilgore for sharing thoughts and illustration!)
