We are so excited to have the gorgeous and multi-talented Janine as our April Model of the Month. Starting as a fashion model, Janine has now also found herself as a fit model as well! Continue reading to learn about Janine, her hobbies, and her top fit highlights!
1. Where are you from?
Hi there! I know it’s a model rarity but I am born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I have gotten back into my art and have been working on my children’s book story boarding/ sketching. I’ve also revisited rollerblading and have been steadily speeding my way through my Irish step (both soft shoe and hard shoe) dance lessons.
3. Favorite fit clients from the biz?
I have definitely been enjoying fitting with the Madewell team! So a fun and such a smart crew. I also have enjoyed all my time fitting for my whole range of clients from Narciso Rodriguez, to Crye, to the students at Marist college! It’s definitely been enjoyable and different experience all around.
4. Dreams/goals, anything else of interest (any fit dream clients?)?
Dreams of mine is definitely to be able to work and/or collaborate with Thom Browne, Nicholas Ghesquière and with Chloé (the brand). Fit dream clients would be Michael Kors, Frame, Johnathan Simkhai, Mother, Khaite and so many more! I just enjoy being a part of the design process and everyone has their own techniques and handling it’s such a pleasure to watch and be a part of it!
5. Fit career highlights?
Fit career Highlight, being the model used for a Narciso runway collection! Not only a learning experience but just wow! Enjoyable to see where it started and then to see all the garments grace the runway!
6. How did you get into fit modeling?
How did I get into fit modeling…It all started with a go see 😉
