Her career mushroomed from there, largely in Europe, and she’s been in high demand for editorial work as well as on the runways.

She’s walked in New York, Paris, and Milan for such as Balenciaga, Chloé, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen,, and closed shows for the spring 2009 Behnaz Sarafpour and Iceberg.
