Australia’s favourite girl next door, Elyse Knowles, has her sights set on going global.
Hoping to follow in the fashionable footsteps of Miranda Kerr and Jess Hart, the model and brand ambassador, who fronted the latest Seafolly campaign, says she has big plans for 2019.
“I think, for the new year, set new goals,” she said at a Seafolly event this week.
“For me, it’s about broadening the spectrum and definitely working on other markets overseas.“Working internationally is something I want to tick off the list,” she said.
The iconic Australian swimwear brand has become a career launching pad for bikini-clad models, catapulting the careers of former Seafolly faces Kerr and Hart and helping them
to skyrocket to supermodel status, with both going on to become Victoria’s Secret angels.
“It is a dream come true to be the face of Seafolly,” Knowles said. “I’ve dreamt of this since I was a little girl. It’s an iconic Australian brand recognised around the world.
“All these global names have fronted their campaigns and then Elyse came along,” she laughed.
Fast becoming one of the country’s most in-demand models, Melbourne-based Knowles is an ambassador for retail giant Myer and released a book this month, From Me to You.
