I had the honour to interview Samantha Renke talking about fashion for my youtube channel. At this point I am sure you already know Sam… but below is an intro I found in the Daily Mail. I hope you like our video. We talk about Parallel London, how to be a model, VisAble, fashion in general, the things Sam likes to wear, etc… I won’t tell you everything so not spoil the video.
In the end, we ended up with 2 videos.
Enjoy it and please leave your comments.

The fashion industry in the UK is booming more than ever, and that’s because of all the amazing designers, labels, brands and models. But, a major factor in why UK designers get so much exposure is down to PR companies that work tirelessly to push them further. Now, recently I was fortunate enough to collaborate with a wonderful PR company called London Organic.
Predominantly, they work with UK designers that are unique and stand out from the crowd. They love labels that reflect the British fashion culture with amazing style, while also representing each and every diverse group that exists in London. Personally, when I was working alongside London Organic, I was mesmerized by the way they actually support different designers.
They literally cover every angle; whether it’s assisting with production so that items are showcased in the best light, conducting photo shoots that capture creativity or advertising the label on social media, they leave no stone unturned. Now, when I met London Organic, it was at a pop-up boutique.
So, the first way I joined forces with them was to take part in some of their photo shoots. This was brilliant, because not only did I get to try on a vast array of different pieces, I also got to see behind the scenes of a London Organic shoot. Judging by the quality of pieces that I got to adorn during the photoshoot, you can tell that the renowned PR company take great time to carefully select who they support.
Of course, their speciality lies in helping emerging talent reach the top, but they still ensure that the labels they work with produce top class items. All throughout the shoot, London Organic displayed a sense of pride in every single designer that is under their wing, which is fantastic because that attitude is what’s going to help UK fashion continue to thrive.
Other than being part of the photo shoot, I also got to check out some of their products which they make themselves. Their products mainly revolve around organic face and skin creams; flawless skin complements fashion pieces and adds to the overall beauty during a shoot. I’ve got to say, I was super impressed by all of their products.
Why? Because not only did they smell divine and feel fabulous, they were full of natural ingredients which will only benefit your body. Nowadays, there’s too many companies within the fashion industry that produce chemical-based creams, which I believe isn’t a good thing. Therefore, it was nice to see London Organic focusing on being fully organic.
My day with London Organic at the pop-up boutique was very fulfilling, and I had a tremendous time being part of the photo shoot, meeting all of the designers, and exploring their range of face and skin creams. If you’re a designer that needs help to progress, or you’re someone that wants a lovely, natural skin cream, then I’d highly recommend London Organic!
I had the opportunity to do this photo shoot with amazing brands like Paul Magen, Valdenize
Soares, Judith Leiber represented by Sangeeta Assomull and with the fantastic photographer Sikandar. The stylist was Saskia Rowlans and the makeup was by Hanna Soraya.
The outfits are amazing. It was a very cold day, around -1 degrees Celsius and we were taking the photographs outside. I think you will agree that the results are stunning. Special thanks to Saskia for putting everything together.
The lifestyle of a model is not all glamour. It requires a lot of hard work sometimes in extreme temperatures. It was a great pleasure to work on this project with such great people. We had great fun working as a team and the results you can see in the video below.
