The Only One That Has To Love My Body Is Me - Our Interview With Stacey Hiett, 9/01/2010

Tall, blonde and beautiful and only seven month's into her modeling career,  she has already caught the eye of clients such as Sydney's Closet, Full Figured Fashion Week and of course PLUS. Who is this striking young lady? Her name is Stacey Hiett, only one half of Team Hiett, as their friends like to call Stacey and her sister Shannon, who is also a plus size model.

In this month's issue, we feature Stacey in her own editorial and get to know a little more about the "newbie" that has the industry buzzing.

Maddy: I remember last year during Queens Fashion Week, Mia Amber told me there was two sisters I had to meet, and you are one of them. Was Queens Fashion Week your first modeling gig? 

Stacey: Queens Fashion Week was my very first New York Runway experience. I had such a good time and learned so much.  Walking down a runway is such a rush of excitement. Plus, it opened a lot of doors for me and essentially got me to where I am today. 

Maddy: How did you get started in the modeling industry?

Stacey: It's quite an interesting story really. I was 14 years old when a modeling recruiter, at a high school football game, approached me and I remember she suggested I should model. Very long story short, it turned out to be a scam but it planted the modeling seed in my head. Six years later, my sister became interested in modeling/acting and would bring me along to different agencies. I essentially was peer pressured into modeling. 

Maddy: We have seen you working for various clients. Where will we see you next?

Stacey: I recently did amazing shoots for Sydney's Closet for their new collection as well as Tru Diva.  For the month of September I get the opportunity to walk in Queens Fashion Week again and Re/Dress Fashion Night Out for Lotis. Hopefully, you'll be seeing more and more of me. : )

Maddy: Your still fairly new to the modeling industry, what have you learned about the modeling industry so far?

Stacey: I've only been modeling for just about 7 months in New York City so with everything that has happened in that short amount of time, it feels like I've been doing it longer! The one thing I have learned from modeling in general is to never feel discouraged.  This business is all about broken promises and you have to realize that sometimes things fall through but you have to just keep moving on. I have been blessed to meet some amazing people who have coached me and offered me great advice. I'm forever grateful for them.
