A LIMERICK model who has been signed to one of the top agencies in the country says it’s “mind-blowing” to be on the same books as Ireland’s leading catwalk queens, Roz Purcell and Georgia Salpa.
Shauna Lindsay is the latest beauty to be signed to Andrea Roche Model Agency based in Dublin.
“Ever since I started modelling, my icon in Ireland for modelling has been Roz Purcell and I wanted to be where Roz was. Now, to actually be with the same agency with the likes of Roz and Georgia Salpa is just mind-blowing,” said the brunette beauty who is originally from Shannon.
The 20-year-old remains on the books of the Holman Lee Agency in Limerick and will continue to live in the city centre.
“I just commute up and down to Dublin whenever I have a job. I was on Ireland AM this morning and I have already had a good few jobs which is great,” she explained.
In terms of her own individual style, Shauna says she tries to be unique “and to wear things that you wouldn’t see other people wearing.
“My sister is in LA so whenever I visit her I do the rounds of all the stores there.”
Her favourite model is current ‘It girl’ Gigi Hadid and the one modelling gig she would love to secure is the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
Late last year Shauna, who thinks her smile is her best asset, won a national search to be named the face of Gosh cosmetics beating off stiff competition from over 2,000 young women nationwide.
Shauna, who measures almost 5’ 10” in height, was named Miss Limerick in 2013 and is dating 2FM DJ JJ Hartigan.
