LB: Which is more fun,Photoshoot or runway?
RHESA: " Photoshoots and runway lets me interpret the designers ideas in different ways so they are both fun to do.

RHESA: "Hanging out with my friends shopping in Camden Market or Brick Lane is always so much fun. I also love baking with my mum and sister."
