Meet our Models: Sympli Muse, Loris
Meet Loris, coined Sympli’s Miss 2017.
We were introduced to Loris through our local community, and it didn’t take us long to realize she was a perfect fit! She is the type of woman who lights up a room with her elegance and grace, bringing along infectious energy wherever she goes We could not think of anyone better suited to embody the Sympli brand and its values.
We’ve loved working with you in our photoshoots! Can you tell us about being a model for Sympli?
Before the first photoshoot, I was absolutely terrified. Although I am an outgoing person, I am shy in front of the camera and I suffer from stage fright! Sometimes I find it hard to put myself out there. When I was asked to be in the photoshoot I thought to myself, “what’s the worst that can happen?” I decided to do it by taking it on as a new challenge. On set, everyone was so fabulous to work with and I had so much fun! The clothes were so beautiful and after the shoot was over, I felt totally empowered.
What does modelling for Sympli mean to you?
Modelling for Sympli was such an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and explore new possibilities. Also, with a love for the fashion industry, I got a chance to really see behind the scenes, which was amazing!
How would you define ‘true beauty’?
I feel a woman is at her most beautiful when she is her authentic self; when she exudes kindness, warmth and confidence. I feel the most beautiful when I am fully present and fully engaged.
You have a natural sense of style. Who would you say is your inspiration?
So many women like Coco Chanel, Dianne von Furstenberg, and Donna Karan. These women captured how the ladies of the day wanted to look and feel; they have a naturally classic aesthetic.
How would you describe your style?
My style is understated and monochromatic. I like clean lines and the juxtaposition of hard and soft. I feel good in tailored jackets with something that will drape around my body underneath.
Is there something you’d like to see change in the fashion industry?
I would love to see women of the ages of 40, 50, 60 or even 70 walking the runways. I want to see older women rock those clothes and show the world what we have to offer.
How do you feel about ageing?
With age comes wisdom. It is the ability to feel a total acceptance of myself and my body. I honour that wisdom. I no longer care what anyone thinks of me and dance to my own beat.
If you had one message for all women, what would it be?
Always trust yourself. Your intuition never lies.
Sympli is dedicated to creating fashion for women of all shapes and sizes. We are inspired by the women in our community, which is why our photo shoots are about more than just taking pretty pictures. They are about connecting with the women in our community and creating a fun fashion experience that embodies our inspiration and mandate. They are for Sympli women everywhere…
