The model talks pattern on day two of her Dazed Digital takeover

"The main thing that has been haunting my mind lately is probably pattern. After unpacking all my bags after a year of travel, l discovered that I had collected a whole pile of pattern-printed pants. Not very strange, being the textile student that I am, but its not just printed clothes that keep my mind busy. Looking at the photos I take during my travel, patterns, structures and prints are frequently the subject of my street snapshots. Trying to recognise structure and unexpected harmony within the world around me has been the most interesting thing for me to photograph, always travelling alone. But it's not just loneliness that had driven me to take these. Patterns take a big part in daily life, trying to bring structure to all the chaos this job brings and find harmony between work and time off, using planning as a tool. Patterns have become a big part in my daily life."
