has not only worked as a (photo)model for years, she is a model in many ways!
Career, not only as a model
Emilie studied fashion training at the Vogue Studio in Amsterdam which she successfully (with honors) completed. Besides she studied art history at the University of Montpellier.
Emilie: “I have always been interested in fashion. After my training, I first had my own fashion atelier and associated shop. Then I started working as a model in advertising and TV commercials. For more than twenty years I’ve been ‘Frau Antje‘ for the Dutch Dairy Bureau. That’s been my longest job.”
All in all a great career and not just as model. Besides her work Emilie played hockey for years in the Dutch national hockey team. Not surprising she was honored for her commitment to sport, modeling and fashion shows at national and international level. In 2013 Emilie received a royal medal from: Knight in the Order of Oranje Nassau
Meanwhile Emilie has been running, with great success and for many years, her own PR agency: Favourite PR Events & Models. I have recently seen Emilie at work at the fashion show of designs by Max Heijmans in the Jewish Church in Amsterdam. A great, well-run show, with beautiful couture, most loaned for the occasion by private individuals. That means, it has been an entire organization, not just in advance to collect all those pieces, but also during the show. Emilie makes sure everything runs smoothly. Glenn Gulzar was also during this show responsible for the hairstyling of the models. He has been working to all the fashion shows organized by Favourite PR since 1986.
Emilie: “We organize fashion shows and -events. Besides scouting models is a is an important part of the work of our agency.”
Dolce and Gabbana
“I really like Dolce and Gabbana couture. Especially their shows, because of the styling they are always such a joy to watch. But my favorite designer is Jean Paul Gaultier. For myself I like to make combinations of different designers. Today I wear a sleeveless coat and trousers by the Italian label YPNO, the blouse is Belgian by Essentiel. My earrings I bought at an antique dealer, pearls with a bow. I have a special love for pearls. The bag is by Hermès. ”
Shoes: by Hogan
“My hat is by The Kooples, the bracelet I bought in Thailand, my sunglasses are by Pollini.
