Sporty and Wholesome

I think i have somewhat undermined my ability to book a variety of jobs. The words 'sporty' and 'wholesome' have come up in a brief.

It scares me to tears because this sporty concept is new to me and and its damn obvious i have a tiny, if not, no chance of getting picked because i think I've taken my portfolio in an extremely editorial direction.

Come onnn!!! I can do sporty and wholesome!!! my own kooky, editorial way.

My faulty email service...

meant that there was a failure to notify me of any new emails for all of yesterday and this morning. Therefore, i was metaphorically oblivious to the movement of the earth and i was left sitting in my computer chair thinking that my work and social circles had become stagnant.

So at 2am in the morning, out of sheer boredom, i checked my own Model Mayhem page and noticed a new tag.

Visit , I'm sure you'll be able to guess what that tag was about.

That picture is pretty damn smouldering, if i do say so myself.
Anyway, I was so flattered/excited that i couldn't fall asleep until 3:30am.

Long live insomnia.

EDIT: The background image has been taken off. Oh well, at least it ran for a few days.

It's been a while...

since I've blogged partially, as most of you should know, because of my HSC. For those of you who dont know what the HSC is, - shifty eyes- its pretty much University entrance exams, or High School Certificate.

So, what else have i been up to other than trying to study (procrastinate) my ass off? You may ask.

Well, i have been tweeting with Bruna Tenorio. Yes. THE Bruna Tenorio who has multiple campaigns under her belt including one with Anna Sui, and she's walked Versace like 4 times.
She's thuper duper nice!

However, i have NOT been booking test shoots, been receiving test shoot prints and CDs back, neither have i submitted to Platform yet.

Cmon Jysla Kay, maths will be over today! We can book a reshoot!

One of the very, very few men who can potentially ruin my life by making me feel horrible about myself.

Guess who Gucci sues? Just Guess.

By Erik Larson

May 6 (Bloomberg) -- Gucci Groups U.S. unit sued Los Angeles-based Guess? Inc. for trademark infringement, accusing the apparel company of using a network of wholesale buyers to sell imitations of Guccis best-selling designs.

Guess allegedly sells knockoffs of Guccis famous green-red-green stripe designs and interlocking GG patterns on footwear, wallets and other accessories, according to a complaint filed today in federal court in New York.

Gucci, the luxury company owned by Paris-based PPR SA, said the products are part of a sophisticated and elaborate scheme to target Gucci, to create products that are similar in appearance to the most popular and best-known Gucci products.

Guess sells the alleged imitations through its own retail stores as well as factory outlets, Web sites and a vast network of third-party companies that buy the disputed goods wholesale, Gucci said in its complaint. The company has more than 1,000 stores, according to its Web site.

Guess has replicated entire Gucci product designs, to the point that there appears to be a concerted effort to Gucci-ize defendants product line, Gucci alleges.

It was so close, i could almost taste it.
Then it was taken away after much indecision.

Because of something i cant change.

"You only need to grow three centimeters, then you can come back"

I need a miracle to happen.

SO CLOSE to one of the top editorial agencies in Australia.
It just made the fall even more painful.

You're too small honey.

So today, i was in the CBD with Blakeybear.

We stopped off at Priscillas. I felt so STUPID because i didnt know how to enter the building. I kept pressing the intercom buttons and no one came. Finally, after about 10 minutes of flailing my arms around and whinging to Blake, i CALLED them and an agent came through the front door (that looked like a window) and spoke to me for 2 minutes. He asked for my height and double took when i told him i was 180 (LOL), looked through my book and referred me to Platform and Scoop. GREAT START!

Then i walked all the way from Priscillas in Potts Point, to Double Bay where Viviens is. I was told to have a seat as the receptionist talked to an agent there. I was informed that Florence (whos in charge of the mens board) isnt here, but the other agent looked through my book anyway and told me to email *this* *this* and *this* shot to her. Thats a start, right?

..Yeah. After that, i walked allll the way to Chic (scoop) at ..i dont even know where it was. I just remember a lot up hill hiking and it took about 30minutes. Luckily, Blake had a navigator on his phone so i was able to get there. Their office is so out of the way! I got in and saw a few of the new girls getting polaroids taken. Theyre so slim omg. I went into the commercial division of Chic, an agent stood up and told me 'youre too small, honey." LOL. I told her i was 180 and so i ended up being measured. Then she told me the mens board is super competitive so she couldnt take me on. YAY.

THEN we pranced all the way to Oxford street, where i met a fellow model called James at the Diesel store. He gave me all the scoop on Scene agency and what not. Quite juicy, i must admit. I now think i know why certain.. people.. are.. acting the way they are *cough*.

ANYWAY. I emailed Florence. Lets hope i get signed with Viviens!


"Cheer up, you're awesome"

A bit hard when im surrounded by amazingly gorgeous people.

I feel so inadequate.

And to top it all off, i have go sees with Viviens and Priscillas tomorow. The future looks BLEAK.

Scoop Management

I was advised by an amazing photographer to try scoop, the commercial division of Chic. Yes. A commercial agency. Screw fashion up the ass.

Anyway, I emailed them and five minutes later i get a reply from one of their agents saying that im not suitable for their agency. Thats all fine, but i cracked up when i read how generically sugarcoated the response was.

"Thank you for your interest in Scoop management. Unfortunately, although you are very beautiful, we are not able to take you on at this time. Being a boutique agency, there is quite a specific look we are after that best pertains to our particular client base."

Although i am very beautiful eh. Ah well, i'll give it another shot after i lose the 5 kilograms after procrastinating on it for the past 3 months.

Interview with Moda Management on monday at 12.

I'm not suuureeee what ima do cuz Moda is dodgy/I am dodgy. LOL.

Kill me now.


I had a test shoot today. It involved lots of styling experiments, tons of layering, me absorbing the technicality in studio lighting and lashings of Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme.

The 1h30mins of travelling paid off. The amazing photog was great technically and he was great at directing me. We both knew that i'd struggle in a studio with boring white walls, but he helped me out and unakwardized it all.

Thank you Mr Kent Marcus!


Fashion vs. Alternative

So there are some out there who think i should be a Fashion/Alternative Hybrid when it comes to modelling.

Everyone knows what fashion modelling is, but lets break down what Alternative modelling means. According to Wiki,
"Alternative modelling is a branch of the modelling industry that features models who do not conform to mainstream ideals of beauty. Alternative models are often niche-specific, with a personal style that represents subcultures like goth, burlesque, latex and fetishism."

So basically I'm ugly, yet skanky/kinky.. yet.. high fashion?

Sessilee vs. Chanel [part2]

Now i have video proof. TEEHEE

"Eniko, dont play!"

Thats all.

So today..

I was scouted by Moda Model Management.

At the moment, i'm sort of in my doubt phase. Maybe it was my knowledge of the industry that got them to scout me - to save face - because every informed individual should know modelling/acting courses are bullshit.

Admittedly, they are a legit agency. But im still a bit iffy on them. UGH.

SOMEONE give me some answers. PLEASE.

I hope i get a callback soon.


Monday, October 5, 2009

I haven't thought about it for a while..

but maybe it is time to slam down the breaks.

All the planning I've done in the past, maybe it was for a valid cause.
All these thoughts of the past have resurfaced.

The road ahead looks bleak.
Maybe it is time to stop the engine.

people actually read my blog eh?

Well for those of you who like to do little bit of talking, i think you may be disappointed to find that i have cut out cigarettes from my life. Maybe not forever (who knows the future eh) but definitely for the time being.

On another note, IM PISSED OFF!! I accidentally double booked Wednesday. IM SORRY ROSA!! i have to bug Kent to let me off early haha. UGH. Actually no, i'll have to work my ass off and get the shots quickly and hope that styling dosent fuss over me too much. LAME.

Back it comes

I'm testing once again. Not wise right before my exams i know, but seriously, they mean nothing to me. I still do want to do well, but really, they're not really helping me all that much.

I'm booking as much work as i can these holidays, plus sending in submissions to all the major players here in Sydney.

My next test is on wednesday. Why is there a lack of stylists here in Sydney? My wardrobe does not compensate for the amount of test shoots i have. I mean i have my own style of clothing and some pieces are versatile, but you can only play around with one look so many times. Speaking of which, i must get my formal shoes on Tuesday now, because i would probably need them for the shoot.

On wednesday, i shall morph myself into a hybrid of images from Blade and Matrix with gothic influences.
An image from the inspiration board.

It shall be interesting. I haven't shot in a studio in a while.



It's suddenly hit me that i shall never see some of my beloved friends ever again. I shall not be in this preprepared environment, where everyone is put together.

It didn't hit me when i graduated, it didn't hit me on our last day at the picnic. So why now?

Well, Debbie deactivated her facebook account. Petty, it seems. However, it was in a way, symbolic, yet still very literal for me.
She shut the door of communication between us (and others of course, but im ranting on from my perspective). She was one of the very few people i truly appreciated, yet i would probably never see her again in the future , like many other people - I'm not being pessimistic, im being realistic.

I guess this is almost like an official goodbye from me, except no one is here to listen.

I really did enjoy my time at Girraween. It was one of the best experiences in my life.

Out with the new. In with the old.

I was supposed to stop smoking today.

I had two when i was out with a friend.

I hate myself.

Finished my pack - not buying a new one.

Gonna go swimming at least twice a week and run twice a week.

And do weights 4 times a week.

Come back to me, oh habits of the past.
