World Class Models Magazine: Please tell us about yourself.
I am Elizabeth, a Czech Belgian model living in Europe. I study economics in college. I work as a model and I hope to become a great economist in the future.
World Class Models Magazine: Please tell us about your modeling experience.
I recently walked London Fashion Week and I am heading to Paris very soon for fashion week too. I am a runway model and graced the cover of World Class Models Magazine at the age of eighteen. I also walked many shows during International Fashion Week Dubai. I am hoping to model during New York and Milan Fashion Week in the near future.
World Class Models Magazine: How were you discovered?
I was discovered at the age of fourteen through a modeling contest held by Elite Models. As one of the top girls during the Belgian selection, I became a professional model.
World Class Models Magazine: What made you decide to become a model?
I was scouted by Elite at such a young age ! Beforehand I never really thought about modeling, even though I’ve always loved fashion. It seemed so unreal and far from me, yet I have achieved so much in this industry by working hard. Becoming a model is a huge responsibility, millions of people see your work and you gain tremendous influence. You have to use that influence in a positive manner.
World Class Models Magazine: What is your favorite style of modeling and why?
I’d say that runway modeling is what I’m the best at. I know how to work the runway, my walk is getting better and better every time. I feel so confident on the runway. I get the same feeling I got when I was a competitive figure skater. That shot of adrenaline and excitement is wonderful. After each show I’m whispering to myself « I’d love to do the show all over again ! »
World Class Models Magazine: Which designers did had a chance to model for?
During the most recent London Fashion Week, I walked for Swedish School of Textiles, Amaranthine Atelier and German designer Leonie Mergen.
World Class Models Magazine: Which designer was your favorite and why?
I loved working for Leonie Mergen, her vision truly inspired me. I was so impressed by her craftmanship and her inspiration.
World Class Models Magazine: Which major fashion shows have you modeled in?
I’ve modeled during London, Paris, Brussels, Luxembourg and Dubai fashion week. I worked for L’Oréal, Oxford Fashion Studio, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and many more.
World Class Models Magazine: Which fashion show was your favorite and why?
I love working for L’Oréal. Being able to say « Hey, I’m a L’Oréal model ! » is an honor, I adore being part of their shows. It is truly amazing to tell people that I’ve worked for such an iconic brand. Everyone knows them !
World Class Models Magazine: What is your biggest success as a model so far?
Walking fashion weeks around the world. I had the chance to walk many shows during London Fashion Week in September, and I hope to do more in the seasons to come.
World Class Models Magazine: Who's your mother agency and why did you choose them?
I work with different agencies across the world, but I’d say that Network Model Agency is an amazing and caring agency. I’m honored to be signed with such a big and prestigious office.
World Class Models Magazine: Tell us about your upcoming fashion shows.
You can see me on the runway at Paris Fashion Week and in many shows to come.
World Class Models Magazine: Any video commercial or film experience?
I am signed in agencies as an actress as well, so I am hoping to star in films and commercials soon. Stay tuned to see what happens ! I am going to take acting classes in order to elevate my game. I would love to try out more acting in L.A.
World Class Models Magazine: Do you volunteer for any cause?
I am very passionate about education for young girls across the world and sustainable solutions for the environment. Those two fields need donations and help.
World Class Models Magazine: What is your personal fashion style?
My style is eclectic, very fashion forward but elegant at the same time. I love to wear the pieces young designers I worked with made for me. I feel special and unique in these high fashion pieces.
World Class Models Magazine: What is your secret to success.
Working hard, setting your goals high and never losing your focus. Combining my studies, my career and my passions is difficult, but I know this is the only way to achieve my dreams. So stay focused, be the hardest working person in the room, and make me proud !
World Class Models Magazine: How do you prepare for a photoshoot?
I always ask the designer and the photographer what vibe they are going for. I ask to see the moodboard and I get inspired by the clothes I am wearing. I try to incorporate my personality and the view of the team in my work. I know my angles, and I am not afraid to try new things in terms of posing.
World Class Models Magazine: Any modeling tips for up and coming models?
Yes, absolutely ! Practice your walk and your poses. Get in front of a mirror of record yourself while modeling to see what works and what doesn’t. Ask your agent for tips and tricks and always ask the fashion designer what type of attitude they want on the runway. Be on time, professional and nice. That’s it !
World Class Models Magazine: What would you like to accomplish as a model in 2019.
So far, I accomplished my goal of adding London Fashion Week to my list of major fashion events. I am hoping to be on the catwalks of New York and Milan next year. We’ll see what happens !
World Class Models Magazine: What would be your ultimate modeling dream job?
My ultimate modeling dream job would be to be the face of a major ad campaign. One of those where you see your face on every billboard in the city. I would love for that to happen to me. I’ve already achieved some great things, I can’t wait what my career has in store for me in 2020.

Getting better and better at my craft. Modeling is my passion but also my job. I would love to walk every major fashion week there is.
