JAC: It won’t be one of those exciting stories that you probably hear a lot about becoming a model. One day my sister told me “why don’t u try ?” So I did.
JAC: I live in a city of less than 10,000 residents and I go to one of the two junior high schools in here. As u can see, it’s one of those places where everybody knows you since you were a child.. To my surprise, not much has changed ! It is still a place where I want to come back after all the craziness related to fashion world.
I have done some interviews with Polish magazines but I’m trying to avoid publicity.
PONY RYDER: What was your first modeling job?
JAC: Hermes campaign!
JAC: Yes, I’m IMG’s child, and yes, I think they have done an amazzzzing job. I’m saying “child” because since I was 13 they were directing my career and they knew well what to do, to be in the place where I am right now.
I still remember one of the talks we had in the agency last year when they said “we will do some small steps for next 2 years so you can get more experience” … sounds funny now.. when I had already attained so much.
JAC: I didn’t prepare beside some vitamins I was taking everyday, not to get sick. I think the fact that I was doing so well gave me so much energy ! When you hear so many compliments and get the best shows you can not feel tired. Also I did only NY and Milan fashion shows so I had a break before going on runways again.
PONY RYDER: What’s your favorite thing about fashion weeks?
JAC: My favorite thing about the shows are the people I work for and all those inspiring designers, amazing models etc.
JAC: Best location ever was Malaysia ! I shot Jalouse there, and I took my mom to this amazing resort and we just enjoyed a week in this exotic place with private beach far away from any big city. Every shoot gives me new experience and it’s always fun to transform to some character.
JAC: Last months were a bit crazy. I was one week home, next flew somewhere and again and again.. I’m surprised I’m still keeping it all together, catching up in school and still having time to do, for example, this interview ! But yes.. Family support, organized managers + some relax and tea (!) to keep me going.
PONY RYDER: You seem to be great friends with the gorgeous Frida Gustavsson. How did you 2 meet?
JAC: We were working once together in Japan ! One year ago.. After we met at one of the shows we found out that we are both IMG’s children and spent some time talking and having fun backstage. She has a great sense of humor and she’s one of those people who is friends with everybody.
JAC: “Beauty vitamins” ! I found out that inside manner is better then contriving with cosmetics. I mean vitamins like – C, E, B2, zinc. Of course I’m using everyday stuff like Vichy tonic and La Roche-Posay moisturizer.
PONY RYDER: What beauty advice you can give…?
JAC: The beauty advice would be supplement diet by those great vitamins..
PONY RYDER: What about your favorite make up brand?JAC: I like Chanel make up.. I guess because it seems so exclusive, even lip balm looks like million dollars :) and their perfumes are the besttt !
JAC: I always have a high opinion of designers who can be original, make their own style and keep it interesting. This season I liked Calvin Klein, always chic, Alexander Wang for a cool look, Marni for being Marni, Marni (own) style and Balmain – as good as always.
PONY RYDER: What else are you interested in, aside from fashion?JAC: By last time I didn’t have enough time to do something beside traveling and studying. If I only have some time I like to do some sports and draw a bit.
