We know you have been in the fashion industry from an early age and incredibly successful – do you always love it?
I have been traveling and modeling for ten years now, and it’s definitely been a rollercoaster. I had to make a lot of sacrifices moving away and heading into full time work at such a young age, I missed my family and friends, and the simplicities of just being a kid at home. But, I grew incredibly worldly, able to make friends in any situation and loved the opportunities I had to see the world and do what I love. I now feel incredibly lucky for my journey and am so thankful for all opportunities that come my way.
The media tells us all about you, but I am sure there is so much more to Georgia than what we read. Tell us a little about something we may not know about you!
The media shares so much, there would be little you don’t know, but my friends would say I’m incredibly goofy, and probably the most avid karaoke star you will meet.
What was your favourite moment from the show?
The whole experience was equally new and exciting. But, my favourite thing about filming was getting to work with such an incredible crew, and seeing what the hardworking designers came up with each week. My least favourite thing was obviously having to send the designers home!
Who are some of your favourite New Zealand designers to wear?
Paris Georgia, and Georgia Alice.. I love how fashion forward & fun yet classic their designs are. Without a doubt they stand up to international designs I see at fashion weeks all around the world.
How has it felt watching the series back?
I don’t think I’ll ever get over seeing myself on my home television, it seems surreal, but I’ve really enjoyed watching the series and seeing all the behind the scenes of the design process that the judges and I didn’t see from the judging seats.
Georgia you have so much to look forward to in life – tell us what your desires for the future are? What have you got planned for 2019?
I do hope so, one of the hardest things about modelling is you never know what’s ahead of you, but for now, I’m just going to keep doing my best and work my hardest.
