I'm the voice of the young and the face of ever-evolving youth. I've only just begun, but I am far from being finished. I fight to keep my head above water, but I always catch the wave.
Lillith, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I want to
Who is your inspiration in life Lillith? How do you keep inspired?
I have a passion for all forms of art; I enjoy making music with my band, experimenting with different trends and ways to celebrate my body. I also occasionally like to dabble in designing tattoos.
We all make mistakes Lillith; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
My first ever shoot inside of a car garage, I loved the run-down feel of the place, but I let my nerves get to me so much that I feel I didn't make the most of what I had to play with, not only in my surroundings but in the outfit itself.
Lillith, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
With so many aspirations and dreams to achieve, I have a busy schedule. To have the best experience shooting for both the rest of the crew involved and me, I like to organise shoots on days I know I am available the whole day.
Please tell us Lillith, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I had organised a series of group shots, one of the locations being a graveyard. I wanted my group to shoot to not only act as a fantastic way to get great new photos but also as a networking opportunity for everyone present. Because of the reserved, sentimental atmosphere of the Graveyard, I had to span these shoots out over three days, coming up with three different themes that all complimented the setting as well as getting models ready for shooting myself or getting in a makeup artist to help me out.
Lillith, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Whilst on a shoot recently we decided to shoot along the canals, the photographer had a DLSR, Film camera and a Polaroid camera on hand. I suggested that we went into one the canals along the tunnel to shoot, to which she disagreed saying the lighting was too dark. We ended up creating some fantastic polaroids, also experimenting with colour filters!
Lillith, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
It's not a moment but rather something that happens occasionally that reminds me why I love it. I'm a normal girl in education just trying to reach her goals like everyone else. I occasionally get messages from people my age who maybe don't participate in as many extracurricular activities which tell me my confidence boosts their own. I want to remind the youth that we are capable of anything at any age, with hard work.
Lillith, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I had a shoot in a studio setting with a student photographer, she had a collaboration with a makeup artist, and I had to stick pieces of broken mirror to my face with eyelash glue, I had to be very careful as not to cut my face and hands. What made it even more difficult was the fact it was only portraits, there were no full body shots!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Love and believe in yourself, you have to prove it to yourself before you can show others your true potential.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Due to my age at this current moment in time, I can only work up to fashion level. After my 18th birthday (Apr '18) I would like to explore more with latex, BDSM inspired fashions and lingerie, I enjoy a darker, grungier, grittier side of fashion and would love to be a face of the return of grunge in 2017. I would also love to experiment more with hair/extension/wig modelling as well as promoting/reviewing products for smaller brands.
