We discovered her by chance on Instagram. Model Camilla Krag impressed us immediately. She has an incredibly good presence in front of the camera and a great charisma. Take a look at her beautiful and expressive face and her multifaceted appearance on the different photos, we can show you here in Streetfashion MagZZine. You also have the chance to learn more about this amazing model from Denmark by reading our interview with her.
Well, my name is Camilla and I’m 20 years old. I was born and raised in Denmark and this is also where I live now. I am a girl with many interests and therefore I often have a thousand things going on all the time.
I love animals and have always done so. I am especially very fond of horses, and by the age of 10 my parents decided to fulfill my biggest wish and bought me a very nice mare and her unborn foal. To have my own horse has given me many experiences and taught me many things about responsibility.
I also like to travel and have been doing so since I was very little. This has been because of my father’s job.
Of cause I also like to dress up nicely and this is of cause what has led me to the world of being a model. Besides being a model I currently work in a Lidl-store.
I am also currently studying to become a commercial pilot. This is taking place in Aarhus Airport, at Greybird Pilot Academy.
What do you love most about modelling?
What I love most about modelling is getting to meet so many different and exciting people. It is always fun when I meet up with a photographer, and to be able to see yourself performing better and better gives me the eager to improve even more the next time. And then of cause, all young girls like to be adored for their beauty, right?
What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
I have recently been lucky enough to come in touch with the owner of a brand called Interteam Collections. I am now a model for Interteam Collections and as a model for the brand I am featured on the website in different, very nice leather jackets. This has opened up to another exciting level of modelling.
To be honest, being featured in Streetfashion MagZZine is also a major highlight for me. It is almost unbelievable that I am being featured.
Tell us about some of your recent shoots.
Actually my modelling career have been put a little on hold. This has been because I have been fighting to achieve my Class A Medical in order to chase my dream of becoming a pilot. Most recently I met up with two of my favorite photographes Henrik Pedersen and Robert Drobek in a park in the end November, where we shot a couple of very nice pictures in the sunny winter weather. It was an awfully cold experience but as always we had a lot of fun so it didn’t really matter that the temperature was below zero degrees.
What really goes on behind the scenes as a model?
Behind the scenes there is a lot of joking going on. Sometimes it is hard to be focused on looking a certain kind of cool, when you suddenly burst out laughing again. Also we test a lot of crazy ideas when shooting. For example I have had a slug on my cheek once and I have been climbing to the most odd places in forests to get a good shot. As a model I think it is important to stretch yourself as far as possible for the photographer, without crossing your personal limits. As I see it, it is sometimes the most odd behind-the-scenes that gives the best pictures.
I have not yet met a photographer I didn’t enjoy working with, but my very first photographer was Robert, and it is certainly together with Robert and Henrik I have the most fun. I think it is because we are all equally crazy. We certainly have a lot of fun that is for sure.
Define your personal style.
I am the kind of girl that dresses by my mood. One day I can be dressed all in black and the next I can be dressed in the most elegant outfit for a truly girly look. I won’t say I have one specific style, but I mostly dress in a kind of raw outfit though.
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
I don’t really know. I guess I got my own style.
Your favourite designer is… ?
I don’t have a specific designer that I favor more than any other. Instead I do have a couple of specific brands that I simply can’t resist when faced with them. I love the brand NÜ for their raw designs and their seven-pieces-seven-outfits concept. It allows you to buy seven pieces of clothe and combine it into seven different outfits.
I also love the brand Guess for their lovely designs in both bags and jackets, and then I like MissMe for their absolutely stunning jeans.
Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar?
Is there any particular designer piece you are crushing on right now?
No. Nothing in particular.
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
I hope to become captain on a Boing, preferably a 737, but I’m not picky. I look forward to getting ‘my wings’ and hopefully I will be able to combine my interest for modelling with my job as a pilot.
Aboard my Boing 737. No really, I am lucky enough that I have been able to chase my dreams and desires, which has led me to where I am today, and I would not change the slightest thing about my situation as it is right now. I feel very blessed that I have achieved my dreams and I am very thankful for those who have helped me get as far as I have come now. I have never had to give up one dream to chase another and for that I consider myself lucky.
