AAM: How and when did you started modeling ?

Agnes:Got scouted 2 years ago when I was out shopping by my mother agency.

AAM: Do you remember your first casting? Tell me how it was.

Agnes:I’m not really sure which casting was the first, but I remember being INCREDIBLY nervous in the beginning, but still trying to make a good impression. I must have come across a bit hysterical… Hah

AAM: In which countries do you managed to work? Where you liked most?

Agnes:I’ve worked in so many different amazing places, but for some reason I’ve always liked working in Stockholm the best. Since the industry is quite small here, you always end up working with people you know and you always have a blast, it doesn’t feel like work at all!



AAM: How would you describe yourself ?

Agnes:Huge dork, impulsive, carefree, unfocused and… yeah. I can’t think of anything else!

AAM: What are in your opinion the best things in the modeling world ?

Agnes:How it changes you for better or worse, how independent and much more confident you get, all the amazing creative minds you get to work with, how bizarre the industry is and all the incredible places you get to see.

AAM: Please tell us what the last job has left you have the greatest impression?

Agnes:I’ve done tons of fun shoots and shows with amazing people, but the first thing that comes to mind that I’ll probably never forget (and always think of before a show, sigh) was the Rick Owens SS12 show where I nearly fell on the way out and could hear the entire crowd on my side going “aah!”.



AAM: You did fashion shows. Are you nervous before the show starts ? And how do you feel when you walk on the runway ?

Agnes:More often excited than nervous, it’s a major rush being on the runway.

AAM: Are there any models that inspire you ?

Agnes:Any crazy fit model, I’m extremely jealous of their willpower.

AAM: What are your favorite sports, how much do you exercise and how do you manage your diet to stay in shape?

Agnes:I absolutely hate sports, mainly because I suck at it, and I’m a massive couch potato and VERY rarely excercise (if ever) but I’m trying to change that this year! I eat whatever, whenever. I’ve pretty much given up on diets since every time I try to eat healthy I always end up at 7eleven at 3 in the morning buying enough Ben & Jerry’s and chocolate to feed a small country. I’m a terrible model, come to think of it…


AAM: Do you have any beauty secrets hat you would like to share with us ?

Agnes:See a dermatologist! They’ll tell you exactly what your skin needs and you won’t have to try endless of products that won’t work on you. Also, sorry if this is really lame, but smile! Brightens up your face like nothing else.

AAM: Tell us a little more about your hobbies. What are you doing when you’re not working?

Agnes:As much as I’d like to say I’m a super interesting person and have billions of fun and random hobbies, to be honest I just do what everyone else does, hang out with friends and do fun stuff etc. I can get really nerdy when it comes to music though and read enless amounts of blogs and magazines about the latest releases by the bands I like, and I’m always on the lookout for that one record that changes everything (if you’re into music, you’ll know what I mean).

AAM: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Agnes:Hard question! Recently I’ve been dreaming about owning a bakery somewhere in California. I just need to think of a special theme to make it stand out… Or perhaps become a music journalist, or maybe study English and become a teacher, or a TV producer, or work at a social networking site… I tend to change my mind a lot, haha.

AAM: What do you think of All About Models, please be specific)

Agnes:I think it’s a really cool idea! I also really like the interviews with everyone, always a fun read.
