Saule A. M was born and raised in Kazakhstan and began modelling when she was 17 years old mainly so she could travel and explore the world. For her getting a portfolio created was a challenge the first year but once she signed with Mannequin agency in Singapore her career took off. It was really exciting for us ( Wilhelmina Dubai) to bring such an exotic beauty to the region so I asked her a few questions on life as a model.
Greatest inspirations or influences?
My mom. She inspires me for her kindness, for being hard working and honest which are in my opinion, the most important human characteristics.
I also get inspired by things around me, seeing someone take pride in their profession, for example, a teacher, a driver etc. and of course i am inspired by the fashion industry because i am inspired by creativity and fashion is an art.
Favorite shoot so far ?
I have so many i cant choose one but i will tell you about a recent shoot in London for Body Shop. That was fun and memorable because so much acting was required as I had to shoot a video for a mask, which id never done before. You learn a lot in these kind of shoots as you are surrounded by the most professional people in their field, so the experience is unbelievable.
What do you like most and least about your job?
😊 of course I love to travel who doesn't ?! I love meeting amazing people everywhere I go and most of all I love getting to try so much delicious food, I am a major foodie. In regards to what I like the least, there is nothing I hate, you just have to learn to be patient as in any other job.
Favorite websites or social media handles?
I often check Harper's Bazaar on facebook I love their articles.
- I love Vivenne Westwood , DVF,
- Karl Lagerfeld , Oliver Rousteing and many others
Any interesting beauty tips?
I try to always use organic cosmetics, and there are plenty of amazing Australian brands. My favorite is Frank body scrub. My philosophy is that life is all about balance, so I combine gym and yoga whenever I have time to work out.
