The road to becoming a renowned model isn’t always glamorous and easy. We’ve heard of success stories and, of course, stories that prove modeling is not just a strut down the catwalk. But if you’ve got the right mix of looks, personality, drive, and talent like these up-and-coming models, then you’re all set for a fashion industry takeover.

We invited 4 young, up-and-coming models for a slumbersome afternoon shoot in order to get to know them more. Don’t sleep on these kids; they could be the next Anja Rubik or Ash Stymest.

Second model to feature is EMILIJA SUSINSKAITE:

On a normal day, what would people see you wear? “Depends on my mood, really. I don’t have a specific style. Some days you’ll see me wearing a dress, other days sweatpants.”
