Age: 21 Height: 176cm Instagram: @ellahopem Place of Origin: Born in Buckinghamshire, UK & grew up in Cornwall, UK

What was your first modeling job?
My first job was a lookbook and yes I was super nervous!! I always hated to be in front of the camera originally, I was the friend who always offered to take the photo or just hid in the back but now it feels quite natural as I just learnt to get into the flow and it’s like becoming someone else!

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My first big cover for Tatler UK was definitely memorable with the absolute babe Sophie Pera who made the mood come alive for me! My shows for Dolce & Gabbana where they welcomed me into the family & this season’s Phillip Plein AW18 show where the production was insane with robots & spaceships, it was an insane experience.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I have always dreamed of working for Calvin Klein & being in their campaign or walking for them! My absolute dream would be to shoot with Peter Lindbergh or Mario Sorrenti, I have always loved their work.


Vega Essermeant

Agency: Uno Models (Barcelona)

Height: 170cm Instagram: vegaessermeant Place of Origin: Born in France, “Half of my family is from Cameroon (Africa).”

Who is someone you admire and why?
“I love the street art artiste Banksy. I love his work, it’s inspiring and important.”


Noëlle Isabelle Nijhof


Division Models Amsterdam (mother agency)

Special Management (Milan)

Height: 178cm Instagram: noellenijhof_ Place of Origin: Born in Germany “My granny is from Indonesia, so basically, the whole family has brown eyes, brown hair and a slightly tanned skin. Even my mom and sister have these features, but somehow I ended up being the odd duckling in the family with red hair, blue eyes and a pale white skin.”

What are your interests/favorite things?
“All day long I try to relate to and connect with all kinds of people. I’m very interested in who they are, what they do and even more in why they do it. Probably that is why I love art, history, and religion so much, it gives an understanding about what people experience, how they see things and it taps into the why once you try to understand it. Aside from the all-day observing and connecting, I love to spend time with my family and friends.”


Zoë Barnard

IMG (New York)

Age: 19 Height: 5’9″ Instagram: @zoeebarnard Place of Origin: I was born in Hong Kong and lived there until I was 12. My maternal grandmother is Anglo-Indian, my grandfather is from Goa. My fathers side is mainly Scottish-English but there is a little bit of Chinese descent.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
It’s really hard to pick just one! Every job brings a new experience and I’ve been lucky enough to have some terrific ones. One of my most standout moments though was definitely walking for MiuMiu as an exclusive in Paris Fashion Week.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to work with Mario Testino or Steven Meisel 🙂 a dream client of mine would be Vogue, and walking in the VSFS
