Hello my sunshines ❀! I am a full-time professional fashion, commercial and runway model based in London, UK. I am currently managed by Niisha Brown, the CEO of my pageant academy, who is also my runway coach. I am signed with a number of booking agencies but I also accept freelance projects. I first started my modelling career a few years ago back in East Asia as a part-time commercial model. I continued to model while I was living in Norway. Then, I moved to London 2 years ago and began my journey as a fashion model last summer in 2019. At first I only did that as a hobby. But in Fall 2019, I was very lucky to win a catwalk competition in Paris, France during PFW. Since then, I have been super grateful to be given many wonderful modelling opportunities around Europe in the past 12 months. Yet unfortunately, I had to turn down many good opportunities, due to the inflexible schedule of my previous primary school teacher job. I therefore have decided to quit my full-time job this summer and take modelling as my full-time career.
During the last year, I have represented international designers at London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Madeira Fashion Week and Aberdeen Fashion Week. I have also received publications in British Vogue, Tatler, Brides and was featured on the covers of a number of international magazines. Recently, I was featured in a commercial campaign for Netflix, and have been working with different beauty, fashion, bridal and couture brands. I have also been featured in speaking roles in commercials as well as an supportive artist in Bollywood movies. I have also been featured as a fashion and lifestyle journalist for my own magazine in Asia where I had the precious opportunity to contribute articles and share my passion for fashion.
I am always open to new assignments ♥! Feel free to book me for fashion, commercial and runway projects. I do promotional, hostessing and presenting jobs as well. I speak 5 languages fluently and have substantial experience in public speaking. In addition, I am always happy to direct amateur photographers in studio and lighting workshops. Although I prioritise my paid assignments, I have long term collaborations with couture and beauty brands that sponsor me with cosmetics, jewellery, event dresses and occasion wears. I spent a lot my time in community work. I enjoy participating in charity campaigns and charity fashion shows - after all, I love my work, and I want to give as much of my time to the community.
You are also very welcome to book me as a flutist for flute performances - birthday parties, weddings, events and music videos. Unless it is a collaboration with a band or orchestra, I work only for paid for flute performances. I dance and sing as well - if you ever need a Soprano singer or a Salsa dancer in your projects, feel free to let me know! ☺ My couture dresses from Angelic Rose Couture are not for sale at the moment as I have been invited by Starvision to showcase in a charity show to raise funds for women who are victims of domestic violence in the Philippines. However, I am happy to rent them out for photoshoots. Price is negotiable.
*Rate: There is no fixed price as it depends on the nature, location and duration of the project. I am happy to negotiate! Feel free to send an email to inquire.
*Collaboration: I accept collaborations and paid partnerships with brands on my Instagram. I use my phone to take pictures at home with the clothes/ products that are gifted to me and post on stories with my discount code. Thus, if you expect professional camera pictures to be taken or if you want me to make a grid post, you have to pay a fee to my Photographer for a product shoot (as I do not post any non-professional pictures on my Instagram feed). 🧿

In collaboration with the Traveller's Diary in Asia, Rosie has launched her own lifestyle/ travelling magazine earlier this year in 2020. The issue features the tourist attractions in London.
Just a little background information, I had a bachelor in Psychology, a master in Speech-language Therapy and a postgraduate qualification in both Counselling and Primary Teaching (Special Schools). I minored in Vocal Performance and was trained in singing when I was doing my postgraduate. Among the many career options available, I have decided to choose to work full time in the creativity industry as that is what I am most passionate about. Besides modelling, I am very active in the community. I am an activist, as well as an advocate for women’s rights, education, inclusion and gender equality. I am extremely passionate about my community work, and am the charity spokesperson of a few organisations in the UK as well as overseas. Public speaking is probably my strength as I was trained in that when I was in secondary school. I am very confident in delivering speeches in the public and at events. I have spoken for charities as well as done a number of presenting jobs both in English and in other languages since I moved to the UK.
I am also a flutist. I have been playing the piano since I was 3, the flute since I was 5 and the piccolo since I was 10. I have been playing the flute in a band for 6 years, in different orchestras for 10 years, and was the principal flutist for 2 years. I used to teach little children the flute as a part-time student job. I learnt the cello and the recorder for a couple of years as well - although I no longer play the piano nor the cello professionally, I enjoy doing it as a hobby. I love to sing and dance as well. I went to a Dance School when I was in Norway and have been to a couple of Salsa competitions.I have learnt Ballet briefly and have taught Salsa in children's dance classes. I started singing in the school choir since 7 . I used to sing in a Norwegian band for 1.5 years when I was 20 and had regular performances on stage. You can see my singing and flute covers on my portfolio. I have a love for Art as well and I regularly donate my paintings for charity fundraising. I am not the typical gym girl nor do I have an athletic look, but I enjoy doing yoga. I was in the Girls’ Volleyball Team, Long-distance Running Team, Girl Scout, and Girls Swimming Team when I was in secondary school. I used to practice long distance running for 10 kilometres on the mountains with my teammates once a week. I competed in several cross-country marathons as well as the annual 10km marathon to fundraise for charities. I was honoured to win third place in the national cross-country marathon competition when I was 17. Although I work with couture and bridal brands mostly, I have also done a couple of sportswear catwalks and fitness shoots.
Last year's summer, I launched my eco-friendly fashion brand Angelic Rose Couture, with all the profits donated to conservation projects. All the designs are handmade by me with eco-friendly materials. My brand is partnered with Maka Global, a sustainable commercial brand, where I am the co-owner. Angelic Rose Couture has the vision of encouraging all brands to work towards the green agenda. We have long-term collaboration with UK charity Save the Animals Save the Planet, and have recently joined Adam and Alice Fashion Green Evolution Campaign in London. After all, we want a fashion industry that is beautiful both inside and out ♡!
Last but not least, I am very passionate about beauty pageants. As a former title holder, I love to encourage young girls to be a leader in the society, to love and embrace themselves for who they are. I have been honoured to be selected as the beauty judge in the UK for a few beauty pageants and I enjoy using that as a platform to advocate for body positivity, female rights and self love.
Look forward to working with you, my sunshines! ☀
