After modelling as a child for children’s brands such as Little Workers and Yaz, Chantal knew she wanted to be a model. She was scouted in a coffee shop when she was 14 and was signed to an agency in New Zealand. After a short stint living there, she returned to Australia and signed on with Vivien’s. Since then she’s walked in Australian Fashion Week Sydney for numerous designers including Camilla, as well as for various designers at New Zealand Fashion Week and other fashion shows. Chantal has shot editorial for Girlfriend Magazine and Q Weekend Magazine, to name a couple. She has also done a lot of catalogue work, has fronted a campaign for Wanted Shows and appeared in a TV commercial for the Gold Coast Theme Parks. She says that runway is her strength, and she needs to work on her faces and posing. Chantal thinks her unique background (her father is Nigerian and mum is Anglo-Saxon) gives her a versatile look that will work in her favour. She thinks she’s equally commercial and editorial, and her dream job would be for Chanel. Chantal is in the process of making the move to New York City to try modelling there. She is very focussed and professional, and also competitive. She loves everything about fashion, design and modelling and is determined to build her career and achieve success and longevity on the business.
