2-3 years ago, I got to do a test with this very young but interesting girl with beautiful asian features. She was so so shy and timid, I wanted to give her this big, welcoming hug.
They called her ‘Yumi’ (Well actually ‘Laura’, but they changed it to give her that asian edge).
Now this young Belgian girl turned into a woman and she is freakin’ rocking the fashion world! Not only was she one of the most succesful ‘new faces’ on the catwalk last season, but it turns out Yumi is going all the way: She has become one of the models of the newest Chanel campaign!
Congrats to miss Yumi!
