Noise Noire is an alternative model hailing from Germany, specializing in fashion, fantasy, fetish & glamour.
How did you start modelling? Was it something that you always wanted to do, or did it just 'happen'?
I never planed to do modelling regularly or at least on a professional base. It all started when I was around 12 or 13 years old...I was wearing different cosplay at events and did some photoshoots there - though it was more fun at this time. But then I got some positive responses to my photos and a few invites from more professional photographers and I thought "Why not giving this a try?" and so everything started.
What drew you towards alternative modeling?
I always loved the "darker" stuff...music, arts, clothing, etc. - even when I was younger and around 12 years old. When everyone where listening to Britney Spears - I loved Manson at this time. At least there have never been any other option then do the "alternative" thing.
Do you have any fellow models or heroines who have inspired you?
At least there are many people inspiring me...too many to mention them. But I always look up to people who are hugely creative and having a great sense for all kind of arts - whether they design own outfits, preparing many things for a shooting, having great and unusual ideas.
What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?
At least I'm loving so many different things that I can't really mention anything. Though it's a big dream to do a shooting with real owls someday. I love these animals!
What has been your biggest modelling achievement so far?
On one hand I'd say: I got more confidence! Many people did never understand my way to live, to dress or even the modelling thing because they thought it's "narcissistic".
However - I'm getting so much positive feedback now that I learned not to care what a few people are saying or thinking about me.
And one the other hand I had the chance to get to know so many lovely and creative people which gave me the chance to model for some great designers - the last one has been the German label "Sin Weaver".
How did you discover your paticular interest in alternative fashion?
I would say: through the www! Through the music I loved I stumbled across some gothic shops there...and of course I had to buy some things then. I just love all the details on gothic clothes or everything unusual.
Are there any companies or designers that you'd like to work with?
Oh yes! Far too many! Especially with designers which are not offering "off-the-peg clothing" or accessories.
What are your goals & aspirations for the future?
I want to travel much more! So I also want to do shootings in some new locations and I'd like to work with some new designers and photographers - at least I want to realize some great shootings and live out my creativity and ideas through them!
