Emma Boyd, one of the most active models in New Zealand and Australia right now, has been showing up everywhere lately. We talked to her about her start in the industry and what she’s up to now.
How did you get into modeling?
A family friend of mine was a former model and told me to send some photos into an agency. I’m pretty sure I took them on Photo Booth, haha!
Do you have any nicknames?
I usually get called Em! Although I bought a bomber the other week with “Janice” embroidered on the front, and my friends have called me Janice ever since.
Where is your hometown?
Where do you currently you live?
I like to call Bondi home.
What do you love about the city you live in?
Sydney is so beautiful, there are always things to do and all my closest friends live here! Plus living right by the beach is something I’m not complaining about. I’m a beach bum.
You’re killing it right now with modeling, who is your favourite designer / show you’ve ever worked for?
Thank you so much! My favourite show I’ve walked for so far would be Oscar De La Renta.
If you could pick to walk in any runway show of your choice, what would it be?
