She walked for the CHANEL S/S 2021 show and stood in front of the camera for JIL SANDER, BURBERRY and LONGCHAMP. Here is a brief interview with Madeleine, and more is available via ICONIC.
What has modeling given you throughout your career? Working in the fashion industry is like stepping into a new world. Although I started only one year ago, I have already had the pleasure of meeting so many kind, creative and inspiring people from all around the world. It is truly amazing to work with all these talented people and bring our visions to life together. These unforgettable experiences make me so grateful for this job.
Why have you chosen ICONIC as your agent? I’m very happy to have found a mother agency like Iconic because, from the first day, I have felt very welcome and as if the whole team believes in me. Not only is it an agency which is internationally established and has good contacts in the fashion industry, it’s also like a little family. All the models and agents from Iconic are always supportive, kind and caring to one another.
