Each week, we take the time to highlight one of our favorite emerging models. Previously, we profiled Maxima Gumpp and this week we're turning our attention to Azra Hanic. We caught up with the budding beauty to talk about her career so far, her passion for modeling and her plans for the future.
Have you always wanted to be a model? If not, what did you want to be growing up?
To be honest, I didn't have a dream job. I just knew that I always wanted to be my own boss and do what I love. (almost achieved it, yay! :D)
How would you describe yourself as a model in three words?
Focused - diligent - happy
Your first modeling job?
It was for Mammut and I loved it!
What is your favorite or most exciting aspect about being a model?
The most exciting thing about modeling is the variety. Every job is different and brings you different experiences. You meet new people and you are able to see different places.
What is your dream shoot/campaign?
Working with jacquemus.
Biggest lesson that modeling has taught you?
To be more proud of myself and that I can achieve anything. And the most important thing: never take rejection personally.
What's the best life advice you've ever received?
You never know who needs the kindness you have to offer.
What do you think about fashion? What does it mean to you?
I love fashion. Through fashion we can show the world our personality and who we are.
If you had to be head to toe in one designer brand for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Definitely jacquemus!! I love the simplicity and at the same time elegance of this brand.
How would you describe your style?
Simple but lit
Denim or leather?
Heels or flats?
Flats for life
Vintage or contemporary fashion?
Mix of both
When you're not busy modeling, what are some of your favorite things to do?
I love going on looong walks. Especially with my dog Uno.
What are you working on now and what do you dream of happening in the future?
I am working on being the best version of myself and hopefully someday I can inspire others.
Thank you, Azra, for taking the time to talk with us!
