Living in Switzerland, Austrian model Christine Riener was spotted by us in the German model community Model-Kartei.
We already follow her work and photos for a while and now had the opportunity for an interview with her.
Take a look at her photos and read our interview to learn more about this interesting and talented model.
I am 24 years old, born in Linz, Austria, and have been living in Switzerland for 5 years. I am still working as a part-time waitress and am still working voluntarily in animal protection.
It is very varied, I love to see the different results of the pictures and to meet new nice people again and again.
What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
I was scouted on Modelkartei about 2 years ago by a company, that invited me to a casting and since then again and again provided me assignments at Wolford and Zalando.
Tell us about some of your recent shoots
One of my last shootings was quite exhausting. It was from Wolford for Zalando, lasted a week, from 8am to 7pm, but it was worth it despite the pain in the feet.
What is going on behind the scenes as a model?
It is not as easy as you often imagine, there are not just chocolate sides in model business. The beginning is hard and you have to work hard to reach your goals. Sometimes you also have to travel long distances and you don’t know, what really to expect, so are my experiences.
Which photographers in the industry do you most enjoy working with?
I do not have a favorite photographer. There are several with which the work really makes fun.
My style is a mixture of elegant, sexy and comfortable depending on the occasion, I like the variaty.
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
Your favorite designer is ...?
I buy my dresses at Bershka. I don’t really have a favorite designer. I for example like Philipp Plein.
Vogue or Harper's Bazaar?
Is there any crushing on right now?
No, I wear what I like and not what is trendy now.
What do you want to do in the next 5 years?
I would like to go for a few months to New York and Los Angeles.
If you could be anywhere else, where would you go?
Back to Austria to my family.
Thank you Christine for giving us a glimpse into your world of modeling.
