Miss FQ - - Career - GABRIELLE GIB­SON (GABY) | 23 EUNJIN CHOI (SYLVIA) | 28 @sylvi­aaaaaa_

@_gabrizelle Where are you from and where do you live now? I was born on Auck­land’s North Shore and I’m still liv­ing at home... with a list of chores on the fridge. What do you do? I’m study­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions (fi­nal year!). I also work part time at Karen Walker and in­tern at Fash­ion Quar­terly. Side-hus­tle: Teach­ing TRX sus­pen­sion strap class at Les Mills Taka­puna (come try it!), and I make clothes for friends. What do you do in your spare time? I like to think I’m crafty — I find DIY sooth­ing, al­though of­ten it ends with me try­ing to cre­ate some­thing way be­yond my skill set, like a shear­ling coat. Favourite de­sign­ers: I have a pen­chant for Ge­or­gia Alice — new sea­son or old, I love it all. Other de­sign­ers who I love but who don’t fit the bud­get are Phi­los­o­phy Di Lorenzo Ser­afini, Ellery and LOQ. Favourite fea­ture to play up: My hair — if it falls into place. Go-to out­fit: A tai­lored, over­sized blazer and black boots. 30 sec­onds and voilà! Beauty se­cret: Beauty blenders, drink­ing heaps of wa­ter, and I’m a freak about wash­ing my face a few times a day. Favourite form of ex­er­cise: Hand­stands and TRX. Hid­den tal­ent: On­line shop­ping. Se­ri­ously. What does be­ing a mil­len­nial mean to you?

Free­dom of speech and mak­ing our own rules. Hustlers baby!

What’s your day job? I’m the man­ager at &Sushi — a restau­rant at City Works De­pot in Auck­land. Where do you want to be in five years? Trav­el­ling around the world and own­ing my own restau­rant. Sig­na­ture style: A street style-in­spired, vin­tage vibe. Favourite de­signer: Demna Gvasalia. Best styling trick: Wear­ing red, and just be­ing me! Beauty se­cret: Drink­ing lots of wa­ter. Favourite form of ex­er­cise: Climb­ing and horse rid­ing.

Post-shoot, we gath­ered up our girl squad to talk styling se­crets, side-hus­tles, and how ev­ery­one spends their spare time

What were you do­ing at mid­night last night?

Chill­ing with my boyfriend [Blue Hamel of @hal­fofnoth­ing], who gave me ad­vice about to­day’s pho­to­shoot. Stan­dard brunch or­der: A soy latte with an al­mond crois­sant fol­lowed by a big break­fast. What’s your su­per power: Mak­ing peo­ple feel spe­cial.

COCO GENE JOUAVEL | 18

@ll­cu­ulj/@co­co­jouavel What’s your day job? I work at [Auck­land fash­ion bou­tique] TK Store. What do you do in your spare time? Styling, and watch­ing doc­u­men­taries in or­der to ed­u­cate my­self and oth­ers on is­sues that are hap­pen­ing around the globe. Where do you want to be in five years? Liv­ing in a non-ar­ro­gant world. Sig­na­ture style: Kicked back, di­verse, with a mix ‘n’ match ap­proach to ac­ces­sories. Favourite de­sign­ers: A. Sau­vage, Byslexia (Eddy Richards), Vivi­enne West­wood... a bit of ev­ery­thing. What were you do­ing at mid­night last night? I was at my brother’s gig (Eno x Dirty). Go-to brunch or­der: Gua­camole.

@lara_chaps Where are you from: I was born in Auck­land and grew up in a ru­ral part of the North Shore called Okura, with horses and a pet sheep, Lam­bie. What’s your day job? I’m the re­cep­tion­ist at Bauer Me­dia, which pub­lishes Miss FQ. Side­hus­tle: I love writ­ing and have been do­ing some work on the side for Fash­ion Quar­terly, Paper­boy and The Aus­tralian Women’s Weekly! What do you do in your spare time? I love cook­ing and try­ing new res­tau­rants or cafés with friends. Where do you want to be in five years? Do­ing some­thing I love! Fash­ion and food both keep me go­ing so if I’m in­volved in ei­ther of those in­dus­tries I’ll be pretty happy. Sig­na­ture style: I like mix­ing clas­sic pieces with some­thing con­trast­ing, like a blazer with Levi’s, or a long dress with sneak­ers. Some days I feel more fem­i­nine and other days I feel more mas­cu­line, so it’s fun to fol­low those moods. Favourite de­sign­ers: I wear a lot of Ge­or­gia Alice, mixed in with vin­tage pieces. I’m lov­ing Aussie la­bel

DAISY at the mo­ment, and Zara is amaz­ing for those good value trend pieces. Favourite fea­ture to play up: My legs! I used to be quite in­se­cure about my legs as I thought they were too skinny and gan­gly in com­par­i­son to the rest of my body, but now I love them. Style ad­vice: Wear things that suit your body type and are com­fort­able. Beauty is not pain! Favourite form of ex­er­cise: Run­ning gives me a chance to clear my head and al­ways leaves me feel­ing good. What’s your hid­den tal­ent? I’m re­ally good at limbo and head­stands! What are your words to live by? Be kind to the lit­tle peo­ple on the way up as you might see them on the way back down.
