Hi Leomie, thanks for taking some time out to answer our questions! You’re a rising star in the fashion world, and one who we know will go far! What exciting stuff has been going on in your fashion-world this month?
Well I have a Uni Qlo campaign out at the moment which I’m really proud of and all my family have sent me pictures with it lol. I also just shot a campaign for one of my favourite artists, Im so excited to see the final images!
When and how did you first get into modelling?
I was scouted when coming home from school at the age of 14.
What are your dreams and ambitions?
There’s a lot of things I want to do ranging from TV presenting to fashion journalism and more as well as booking more great campaigns.
We’re really glad you love the brand, and thanks for featuring us on your awesome blog! We must ask…what is your Nubian Skin ‘flavour’? And what’s your favourite piece from the collection?
Yeah, I am a big fan of you guys! I am the Berry shade and my favourite piece is my multi-way bra, it’s so versatile.
Why do you think it is important for women to be able to find their own ‘nude’ in shops?
Regardless of skin tone, we all need underwear or hosiery at times that is our shade and it shouldn’t be more difficult for darker skin tones to find these items! That’s why I love Nubian Skin because growing up as a model there wasn’t much available for my colour so I’m happy I now have a choice of a lot of different products in my nude.
And finally, what is one piece of advice that you would give to Nubian ladies out there?
Never be ashamed of your skin or your skin tone no matter what! You’re beautiful!
