Emma’s answers below:

what makes something beautiful to you?

– simplicity & strength & soul – which I relate to WOMEN! I work at a bar and I meet a lot of mamacitas. There are ones that strike me because of their natural beauty, there are others that I feel connected to because of their soul, others that I see who hold themselves proudly, proud of who they are – sometimes intimidating but I love the true beauty of a woman, in all forms! Might sound sexiest, but I still love my man for all of those things too

what’s your favourite thing to do in New Zealand ?

– I love nature & conversing with people it’s very healing and cleansing to the soul and I’m a people person, I love to feel connected.

what’s your message to the fashion industry?

– Be timeless – don’t be affected by the pattern or trend of fashion. Style, create, art that is yours!

 if you joined a cult who would be your leader?

hmmmm… a cult! Well I think I’m kinda already associated with one, it’s not really a cult it’s more like a gang. It’s called Milkshake Models, and our leader is Keelan aka KeeKee. She’s dope, super individual, honest with what she wants – so she gets what she wants, strong individual and has the biggest heart for the ones she cares about, if you don’t know her yet, jeez ya missing out mate ?

who/what inspires you?

– my Mumma, she is the essence to my growth, strength, depth in my feelings, honesty and simplicity! Honestly she is a woman everyone loves undeniably. Also my Kare’s, I’ve known for years now, every day I feel inspired by them! Whether it’s over social media or a phone call/text or a quick tea with some herbs – I always feel inspired in their presence!
