UP NEXT! MODEL AND IT-GIRL ELIZABETH JAMROZY IS HERE TO STAY
You might notice model Elizabeth Jamrozy from your favorite ecomm retailer or her recent campaign featured in the pages of Vogue Magazine (a model’s dream come true!!) or making the rounds at NYFW! We sat down with the Michigan native who is quickly becoming one to watch to discuss her modeling career and personal style!
What’s your background and how did you end up modeling?
I was born in Michigan and my family moved us to Las Vegas when I was about 8 years old and I grew up there! Ever since I was little, I can remember thinking about how being a model must be and I was always so fascinated but never knew how or where to start. When I was about 16 I finally decided It was time to put some more time and effort into that thought. I met and signed with TNG Models in Vegas and from there I found myself in Los Angeles walking into open calls for agencies.
How was your first experience at NYFW post COVID?
My first experience at NYFW post covid was actually pretty amazing! I don’t have much to base my experience off of since it was my first time, but I think overall it went really well! I think the most stressful part of it being post covid was the covid restrictions and rules, and a lot of last minute confirmations due to limited occupancy, but I had such an amazing time getting dressed up and going to the events none of the post covid rules ruined anything for me. I was really hesitant going into NYFW because I thought it was going to be too chaotic and stressful for me but it was much more of a breeze and I’m very excited for next time.
What are you looking forward to most as you begin to enter the fashion scene as a newbie?
What I’m looking forward to most in the fashion scene is broadening my image as a whole. As a model in LA, a lot of my day to day jobs consist of ecomm shoots in a studio for web usage. I think being more a part of the fashion aspect by doing really fun shoots, attending events, and getting to fly to fashion week is so different from my day to day that I really just enjoy learning and expanding my knowledge of this industry because I’ve already learned so much more than I thought I could’ve!!
What’s your favorite off-duty outfit while running errands in Los Angeles?
A pair of jeans, sneakers, and a vintage tee is definitely my go to. I’m all for getting dressed up and looking cute but when it’s your job everyday to look put together on my off days for errands I can’t be bothered.
Describe your style in 4 words.
casual, fun, diverse, and elevated
What motivates you to get up in the morning?
Coffee for one lol! I think in general my motivation comes from being excited everyday just to build and grow as a person and model. Also being excited that each week consists of so many different things; I’m always doing something new.
Advice you can give anyone pursuing a modeling career?
I think the best advice I could give just from learning through the years is remembering who you are and where you come from and always staying true to yourself. This industry puts a lot of pressure on you and that can be so mentally and physically taxing that sometimes just taking a break is so necessary. Whether that’s from social media or just taking a few days to yourself.
What was it like seeing yourself in a recent campaign featured in Vogue Magazine?
Seeing myself for the first time in a magazine like Vogue was insane. A few months had passed after the shoot and a friend of mine sent a story of her flipping through the pages of Vogue, and there I was!! in VOGUE!!! I was honestly so shocked and had so much excitement, I didn’t even believe it was real. It was such an insane surprise to see that campaign end up in a magazine like Vogue I was awestruck. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that moment.
How do you want people to remember you?
I want people to remember me for more than just a model. I hope that I’m able to accomplish things throughout my career that leave not only a good imprint on this world but show more of who I am as a person to teach people that it’s possible to stay true to yourself while succeeding in such a complex industry.
