Dluxe magazine caught up with Imaan on the set of Next’s new summer collection photoshoot, to find out a little bit more about her and her favourite things!

How old were you when you started modelling?

When I started modelling I was around 14 years old, I was scouted while at a train
station.

If you hadn’t chosen a career as a model, what do you think you’d be doing?

I think I would’ve been in fashion! I am obsessed with clothing and designing/styling.

An Italian Vogue cover!

We LOVE what you do on social media; which is your favourite platform?

I think the craziest thing was when I had to do a shoot with dogs… Not one, but 6 dogs and I am super scared of dogs!

How has being a model changed the way you dress? Are you more conscious of labels and trends now?

I always loved dressing and trends and for me with the work I do it only makes it better. I can always see the newest collections and trends.

Your body is fantastic! What’s your favorite thing to do to stay in shape?

I love doing ballet and dancing! I am new to it but it gives me a good feeling and is pretty intense.
