PONY RYDER: How did you become a model? Who scouted you?
ZOE COLIVAS: Ann Sutherland, owner of Sutherland Models in Toronto (My amazing mother agency!!!), scouted me when I was 12 years old. At the time I was too young, but once I was 15 years old I began doing some work in Toronto, I immediately loved it and as soon as I was 16 I began to travel.  

PONY RYDER: Your favorite Canadian model?
ZOE COLIVAS: My favorite Canadian model would have to be Coco Rocha. She is so influential in the modeling world. 
Although I have never met her she seems to have stayed very true to herself, something I hope to maintain throughout my modeling career. 
She has walked  for the most prestigious designers, has been on the covers of the top fashion magazines and has been the face of numerous campaigns. 
Meanwhile she is an activist and does tons of charitable work. I look up to her as she has made such a major impact on the world of fashion and I hope to do the same some day. 

PONY RYDER: You favorite career moment so far...
ZOE COLIVAS: My favorite career moment so far would have to be shooting W magazine with Patrick Demarchelier. I had always dreamt of working with him, so it was a pretty big deal for me. 
It has also been walking for some of the most incredible designers in New York, London, Milan and Paris, such as walking for Prada Spring/Summer 2013.

PONY RYDER: So will we see you in some sort of wedges this season, something similar to Prada's?
ZOE COLIVAS: I love the Prada wedges for the Spring season, but your more likely to see me this summer in my converse running shoes. 

PONY RYDER: What is fashion like in Canada? 
ZOE COLIVAS: Fashion in Canada is definitely underestimated. There are amazingly talented designers that I believe should be exposed on a worldwide level. 
In Canada fashion is not perceived as a big deal and we have fewer opportunities to prove ourselves as a fashion destination.
