If Lara isn't on your radar yet, that will soon change. The German model is often seen galavanting around New York City with her adorable puppy in hand. She recently caught up with us at our DTLA loft.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS.

Positive, funny, nice

 

WHAT IS ONE THING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I can cook German food really well like German schnitzel.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL DAY OFF.

Phone off, laying somewhere on the beach and relaxing. Somewhere warm, peaceful, and quiet.

 

TELL US ABOUT YOUR ADORABLE PUPPY, ARE YOU A DOG PERSON?

One thousand percent a dog person. Her name is Bella, she's a 7-month-old Yorkie.

 

WHAT IS YOUR DAILY MORNING ROUTINE?

First thing is coffee (I can't function without it). Then take a shower and sit in my robe with a towel wrapped around my head scrolling through Instagram.

 

WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?

My mom because she raised five daughters by herself :)

 

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL FEMININE?

My curves.

HOW DID YOU FIRST GET INTO MODELING?

When I was 15 years old, someone came up to me and asked if I was interested and I said yes!

 

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE A PART OF NEW YORK FASHION WEEK?

The most amazing feeling - the reason why I model. It's so so special.

 

WHAT AYAI PIECE CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?

The Kaif top. I'm wearing it to castings and everyday casual outfits.


Size Guide

We fit from an extra small and grade up from there so our sizing is naturally skewed towards smaller sizes. For wovens we recommend buying true to size while we recommend sizing up for some of our body-con knits.

We have a great staff here at ARE YOU AM I ready to meet with you at our downtown loft space or work with you over email/phone to help you find the perfect fit. If you have any questions about what pieces would work best on you or which size works best for your body type, don't hesitate to reach out, that's why we're here!
