Featured Article: #art8ambyinterview with Komal Gajjar


Get up close and personal with promising young Indian model Komal Gajjar who’s recently got signed by IMG Models Worldwide and worked with prominent fashion photographer Tim Walker.

Find out what are her dream gigs in the fashion industry (hint: it’s involving wings and opening slot of a coveted show) and which silent movie left her crying every single time she watches it in the latest installment of #art8ambyinterview below!

Can you share with us a bit about yourself?

I am just a simple girl with dimples, studying 3rd year in National Institute of Fashion Technology, India the same college as Manish Arora, man of bright colors and mesmerizing motifs. So much interested in fashion. But, I wasn’t doing that fashion experiments on me. I was like a hard core student who makes fashion for other people. But, from now fashion is subjective for me.

How did you start modelling and signed with IMG Models Worldwide?

I was scouted by IMG Models from my social media. And suddenly I came in this field. I was chosen by Tim Walker for i-D Magazine. And, now I love my field.

Opening Prada and Chanel, participating in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, gracing the cover of Vogue Italia, and walk for many shows during fashion weeks are some of models’ biggest dreams. What would be your dream gig in this industry?

Victoria’s Secret Angel, I would love to accompany those lovely and beautiful ladies as an Angel of VS. Opening Prada maybe exclusively, I want to be on the covers of Vogue Paris, and Vogue Italia and so many more and more. I want to work with Mario Vivanco, Tyron Lebon, Mario Sorrenti and so many… This list will go on and on….

Who are the models that you look up to as inspiration?

I like Kate Moss for her innocent looks and after that, her flamboyance, Cara Delevingne for her thought provoking attitude and Miranda Kerr for her all work and as an overall personality.

What is your daily beauty routine, and how do you maintain your physique as a model? What is your workout playlist?

I don’t do proper workout as I don’t need that. But, I do jumping and trying pull ups (I can’t do pull-ups!). As I don’t have workout playlist but I have some favourite songs and that keeps on changing every month but still some of them are El Camino – Gypsy Kings, Maria – Santana, Bailando – Enrique Iglesias, Subeme La Radio – also by Enrique, Girl From Ipanema, When You Look Me In The Eyes – Jonas Brothers, Le Chant De Sirens – Felipe Araujo, Ca Plane Pour Moi – Plastic Bertrand , El Amante – Nicky Jam, On Verra – Nekfeu, Egerie – Nekfeu… Some of them are stolen playlist from someone I love. And now, these songs have become my most favs.

What are the essential things you pack during travelling? What will be your go-to-style for casting week?

NARS radiant creamy concealer, and Elle 18 Rockstar red lipstick, But, actually I don’t use these things. I go everywhere with bare face. That was the secret.

What is your all-time favourite movie that you never get bored watching over and over? And what is your current favourite TV shows to binge-watch?

The Kid – Charlie Chaplin, I am in love with the movies by Mr. Chaplin. Citylights was the first one I saw but, The Kid is on the top. Those chasing sequence of the orphanage representatives and in the end of that chasing heart-drenching reunion always left me crying.

What do you usually do during your free time? Do you have secret talent that nobody knows?

Play my guitar, make some cartoons-doodles, Sometimes I make good portraits of my friends and I surprise them giving their portraits on their birthday as a gift. Finding old work files from my laptop etc. And, yes! I write some poetry, I want to be good in that after that it will become talent.

What is your guiltiest pleasure? And where would be your favourite holiday destination?

This is not at all but, actually I eat a lot when I be at my home. But, people think that I don’t eat. I try to explain them but, they don’t trust that I eat a lot. Second is that still I wear boys’ shirts and shorts most of the time and live like a boy in my personal life. And some must have songs in my phone are Rockstar by Nickleback and It Wasn’t Me by Shaggy. I am opening up about these songs here but, me and my brother only knew about this. That was a top secret.
My travel location: it would be Mexico! I want to visit Machu Picchu and explore those ancient Incan city. Cairo also, those pyramids were fascinating to me since childhood days, I would love to do some work with the background of old Egyptian culture. And road trip to Spain from Italy.

Lastly, what would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?

For sure I would be working in some fashion firm as a Merchandiser or an Industrial Engineer; I have a keen interest in these things. And if I would hear my heart, I have a keen interest in Filmmaking. I wanted to become a director during my high school days.

Featured Article: #art8ambyinterview with Laras Sekar Arum


Laras Sekar Arum is making Indonesia proud! The 18 year-old runway stunner is recently signed with one of the world’s most respected agencies, Ford Paris. During her busy Paris trip last November, we talked with her about her favourite music genres, essential items she carry around, and the ultimate question of how did she get scouted.

Laras is represented by Native Models ID, Jakarta and Ford Paris.

Polaroids are courtesy of art8amby and Lukimages.

First of all, we would like to congratulate you on getting signed with Ford Paris! Could you share with us about the exciting process on how you got scouted by them?

Well, thank you so much! To be honest I feel like I am still dreaming and I haven’t woken up since September. I am so lucky that I am currently here in Paris, France, and that I am given the chance to work with amazing people that I can learn a lot from. It all started when I first join my mother agency in Jakarta, Indonesia, called Native Models ID.

They started taking my polaroids and posted some on Instagram. Days later, I was approached by Ford Paris. Native Models ID, Ford Paris and I were working on my travel plan after that, and now I am on their board, signed the contract recently.

Tell us a bit more about you, Laras!

I was born in Balikpapan, East kalimantan on December 15th, 1997. I have two brothers and one sister, and I am the youngest.

Can you share with us the story on how you started modelling?

I was born and raised in Balikpapan, and when I was 17, I went to Jakarta for holiday. While I was there a friend of mine asked me to join an open casting for models held by a model agency based in Jakarta. I had no idea what to expect but I was chosen as one of their models. However, I was still finishing high school back then. I had my share of going back and forth Balikpapan and Jakarta for some jobs. When I graduated high school, I finally had the guts to asked my parents to let me stay in Jakarta and pursue my modelling career. It took a while for my parents to let me go, but now they support me.

Who are the models that you look up to as inspiration to work in this industry?

Kate Moss, I love her!

Opening Prada and Chanel and landed the cover slot of Vogue Italia are some of models biggest dreams. What would be your dream job in modeling industry?

Walk for international fashion weeks and all of those you just mentioned, of course!

What is your daily beauty routine, and how do you maintain your physique?

Don’t really have a daily routine to be honest. Basic skin care and vitamins are essentials. I wear lotion no matter what, this is number one on my beauty list. I also don’t leave house without applying it on the back of my hands. Drink plenty of water. I always try to make sure I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

How do you usually style yourself during casting and what are the essential items you carry on your bag everywhere?

Wear something simple and casual, like a cool jacket or some oversized sweater/shirt/tank top with short pants or high-waisted skinny jeans.

I basically carry around the same things every single day, just switching some stuff out once in awhile. I obviously always have my wallet with me because I can’t be without it.

I try to keep my bag as organized as possible, which is why I always have a shiny wallet because I need something easy to spot to grab the cash, and tiny little makeup bag with me. It holds my smaller essentials so that they don’t get lost in the bottom of my bag. I always make sure to have a variety of lip salves to keep my lips feeling soft, sanitary wipes for when I need to go to toilet, make up and perfume. It’s important to always look fresh-faced when you go to castings and meeting clients.

I try to always keep my charger with me just in case my cell phone battery is dying in the middle of the day. I carry a lot of stuffs in my bag because I have motto “be prepared”.

Who is your all-time favourite singer or band?

I’m a music lover, so I listen to everything literally without complaining about it, but I do have my favorite genres. I like electronic like Breakbot, I like pop a lot. I like HAIM. I love classical music too. I like the violin and the piano and the guitar. Anything with those sounds will turn me on. I like trance music as well. I like jazz such as Jamie Cullum. I like indie music as well! I just love everything really, but it depends on the mood I’m in.

What you usually do during your free time? What is your guilty pleasure? And what is your hidden talent that nobody knows?

I love to eat anything sweet! That’s my guiltiest of pleasure. I don’t think I have a hidden talent.

Lastly, what would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?

Literally, I have no idea. I think I’d be trying to find my passion other than modelling.
