WA Twins hit peaks of modelling
After spending most of the year abroad working for some of the biggest brands in high fashion,Perth model siblings Steffanie and Mason Roberts couldn"t be more relieved to be back home for Christmas. The genetically blessed brother-sister duo were both discovered by Vivien"s Model Management in Perth but it was Steffanie who initially caught The brunette stunner was just a shy 14-year-old schoolgirl when she was plucked out of a crowd of hopefuls who had turned up to one of Vivien"s regular model-search contests. "I didn"t want to do it but all my friends kept pushing me to do it". "So I entered the competition and that"s how I got signed with Vivien"s." While her modelling career didn"t take flight until she finished school,Steffanie has gone on to build a noteworthy fashion portfolio. Since landing her first international booking at 20 with British label Peridot London - which was shot by renowned Perth-raised New York based photographer Jonas Bresnan - she went on to feature in the brand"s next two campaigns. "Peridot was my first direct booking overseas. That"s what made me want to travel and do more". Fresh from a lengthy stint in Germany,Milan and New York this year,Steffanie has been working non-stop,having also featured in a string of campaigns for Dior and L"Oreal as well as high-end editorials for Harper"s Bazaar and Glamour magazine. For Mason,it was only by chance that he stumbled into modelling. The hunk,who is long-time friends with top Chadwick"s Perth model Stirling Caiulo,caught the eye of Vivien"s model agent Caroline Nankivell on social media. Mason laughed. "It took a while but Stef eventually set up a meeting with Vivien"s and I was really nervous . . . but I thought it was a great opportunity to network for my business." Mason was signed to Vivien"s "on the spot" and subsequently went on to secure a six-month modelling stint abroad,which has included strutting the catwalk for top luxury label Emporio Armani at Milan Fashion Week and Giorgio Armani in Rome. The trip also landed him on the books of two other international modelling agencies - 2morrow Model Management in Milan and Storm Models in London. While he has revelled in his time as a male model,Mason plans to spend some time back home focusing on his graphic design business. "Milan really want me back.
