SHAN­INA SHAIK’S CON­FI­DENCE on the catwalk is a tri­umph over her teenage bul­lies. She be­gan mod­el­ling at the age of eight, but earned na­tional recog­ni­tion in 2008 when she ap­peared on Make Me A Su­per­model.

Her 2009 New York Fashion Week de­but led to glam­orous gigs with Chanel, Tom Ford, Stella Mccart­ney and Os­car de la Renta.

“Walk­ing in my first Victoria’s Se­cret show in 2011 was a dream come true,” says the Mel­bourne-born beauty.

“I love cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful pic­tures and be­ing in char­ac­ter in front of the cam­era. I en­joy trav­el­ling the world and meet­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent in the fashion industry.”
