Future Diamond: Daphine (Model)
Gifted: Hello Daphne. Very happy to meet you.
DaphIne: Hi.
Gifted: So give us a brief history as to how you got into the world of modelling?
Daphine: Well I started modelling at 18 so I've been doing it for 3 years now. I was first scouted at 21 by my Old agent at the Notting Hill Carnival. I went from one agency, to another, to another until I was introduced to Elite Models in London.
Gifted: Wow, so you're now with the top modelling agencies in the WORLD. What do you love about Elite Models London?
Daphine: Well, they're very professional and 'bang on point. They know what they want and what they're looking for.
Gifted: Who's your inspiration in modelling?
Daphine: Urm, I don't really have one. I can name a few but I wouldn't consider them an inspiration.
Gifted: Do you think that the fashion industry should embrace designers and models from all ethnicities, cultures etc.
Daphine: Well yes..London has people from different cultures, countries and ethnicities and this has influenced London fashion alot so the culture of London fashion should be represented on the catwalks.
Gifted: Which designers are you loving at the moment?
Daphine: Bunmi Koko! I remember when she done her first fashion show after her graduation. She put on her own show! Her first debut collection was amazing. I thought to myself, if she's producing designs like that; imagine what type of innovative designs she'd be producing now.
Gifted: Any accessory designers you're loving?
Daphine: Jewels by Lisa.
Gifted: Okay, cool. Can people found out more about you?
Daphine: Yes, you can find me on Twitter: @dap_tony
Gifted: And finally, any shoutouts?
Daphine: Yeah, big up to...only joking (laughs). Shoutout to my mum, family, Black Pearl, my agencies Elite & Fusion and everybody that knows me!
