The bal­let dancer turned in­ter­na­tional model has a shiny new gig.

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamourama -

they say you never know how your day will turn out. And that was cer­tainly the case for Emily Meule­man, who was a 16-year-old East Lon­don stu­dent tak­ing her reg­u­lar bal­let class when a pho­tog­ra­pher ar­rived in search of a dancer for a shoot he was work­ing on.

“Things kind of took off from there,” says the fine-boned beauty – in some­thing of an un­der­state­ment. Now 23, Emily has been based in Lon­don for the past five years, mod­el­ling for the likes of Al­berta Fer­retti, Simone Rocha and Pringle of Scot­land. But the lit­eral and metaphor­i­cal jewel in her crown is her lat­est as­sign­ment: as the face of Mimco ac­ces­sories’ sen­sa­tional new Po­etic Tem­pest range. The first SA model to fea­ture in a Mimco cam­paign, Emily fol­lows in the gilded foot­steps of Soo Joo Park and Ajak Deng, so it’s no won­der she de­scribes this as an hon­our.

It’s also had the ben­e­fit of bring­ing her home for a while. “I love the travel and cultural dis­cov­er­ies that come with my job, but it also means a lot of time alone in planes and ho­tels,” she con­fesses.
