The latest edition of New York based, world famous NYLON Magazine features two Perth girls, Rosie Tupper and Fabienne Vanderhaeghen, both modelling in the October issue. The girls, each represented by a W.A. modelling agency, prove there’s a lot to be said about Perth’s models in demand.
Like Tupper from Viviens and Vanderhaeghen from Chadwick, Sarah Chuot from Scene Models is one to be watched!
Sarah Chuot’s model potential sees no barriers. As she commands attention on the runway strutting for Australian designers, her stand-out presence is awe inspiring. Whether she’s gracing the pages of magazines, fronting local campaigns or studying backstage, everything Chuot does is done with the poise of a supermodel in the making.
Sarah C is Style Voyeur‘s stand out model of the moment, Perth’s own Alek Wek.
Name…Sarah Ayor M Chuot
Hometown…Yirol in Sudan
Occupation…Model and accounting student
I grew up…in between countries, my country was having a lot of problems. I was born in Ethiopia and we went back to Sudan then my father was killed in the war in Sudan when I was two years old, in 1992. My mother brought us to Kenya to stay at a refugee camp, it was a hard life. Finally with the help of god, my mother got our visa to come to Australia. I was 16 years old at the time.
I started modelling…in 2008 in August or September.
I became a model when…I actually went to Scene and the manager Anthony asked me if I could do catwalk right in front of him. I did it, walked catwalk and it was actually my first time.
My highlight modelling so far is…that I’ve come this far to being selected to do the Perth Fashion Festival, Styleaid, TV commercials, magazine editorial, working for nationally renowned designers, doing campaigns and meeting and working with new designers and models.
What I like most about fashion is…that I get to model the awesome new looks for Summer and Winter. It is overwhelming to see the effort and attention to detail the designers put into making their garments.
My style is…whatever makes me comfortable and what makes sense to me from a fashion point of view.
My favourite designers are…Ruth Tarvydas, Alex Perry, Betty Tran, Celestial Tenielle and Ribbon of Africa.
Models I admire…Alek Wek, Jennifer Hawkins, Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum.
I stay fit and healthy by…running around the park with friends and making sure I eat healthily.
A few of my favourite things are…I like to dance, play netball, basketball, running, I like cooking and being with friends and family.
Right now I am listening to…Love Story by Taylor Swift.
I am inspired by…my two year old son and my mother who raised me without a father.
I cannot live without…my family and my car.
Things I like to do when waiting around before shows or shoots…just sit and relax and talk to the other models.
If I wasn’t modelling I would be…continuing my netball to see where it takes me or just going to university and being an accountant.
