Five minutes with Danielle Lincoln
Name: Danielle (dee) Lincoln
Tell us a bit about yourself: I danced competitive dancing for 13 years, do part-time modelling, & love my social life to the max. My life would be nothing without my friends.
What sparked your interest in modelling? To be honest, Its not something I ever thought I could do!! Being 5"4, all you see are these skinny 5"11 girls everywhere and that’s the industry. Then a photographer spotted me at an awards ceremony in Glasgow & suggested it. I guess I could thank that photographer for getting me here!
Can you please give an account of your experience in the fashion industry and as a petite model? All I have mostly done is photoshoots, I have never done actual jobs as I find it hard to get anywhere!
Can you please give your opinion on the strict requirements that are present throughout the fashion industry (for example, height, weight and body shape)? I think the fashion industry is shown in a bad way, & there restrictions are unfair & makes a lot of girls the way they are. These girls are shown as idols & they shouldn’t be. Even though they are amazing at what they do & always look perfect. that’s the problem ! its not perfect. Underweight etc isn’t a good thing.
Why do you feel that it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle? I feel that keeping a healthy lifestyle is the way of life. Some exercise etc & of course healthy eating. Not eating at all. Modelling is about showing real people?
Thank you Danielle.
