Gosh, where do we begin with Arlene? We met on the set of the Rock That Fashion runway show, and when I saw her, I thought, “this girl knows what she’s doing.” and “I really like her dress”. I chose Arlene to walk me down the runway for my finale. She spun me. It was love 😉

Which types of modeling do you primarily focus on? What is your favorite and why?
I focus a lot on editorial and runway. I’ve always had a huge passion for runway, though. I love the fast-paced atmosphere and being able to showcase designs to a live audience instead of just a camera lens.

When did you first start into modeling? Tell us about your first photo shoot.
I first started modeling about four and a half years ago. I was scouted by a wonderfully amazing stylist in a shoe store on Melrose. My career started off doing runway shows. I didn’t really enjoy photoshoots until about 3 years ago, it’s harder than people think to get amazing photos!

What is your favorite part of modeling? How has it impacted your life?
My favorite part of modeling is always the network. Here in LA the industry is a very small, tight-knit community and I enjoy feeling like every event is a family affair.

If you could plan your ideal photo shoot with you as the model, what would this entail?
My ideal photoshoot would definitely be a recreation of Kate Upton’s Zero Gravity Shot. Such a fun idea… That’s one of those once in a lifetime experiences!

What is your passion? Dream job?
My passion is art. Whether it’s in front of the camera or behind, I enjoy creating things that are interesting, not just beautiful. I love innovation and breaking boundaries.

Where can people find you online?
I mainly use Instagram and Facebook for networking.

Can you describe shooting with Kinsman Swim?
Kinsman Swim is one of my favorite brands to work for. Not only do we get to look feminine and sexy, but we get to be part of a bikini movement that is fairly new to LA — Brazilian! Joanna is a sweetheart to work with and she is never afraid to embrace every girl’s unique personality within her brand. Whether it’s a runway show or a photoshoot, she always makes sure that every girl feels happy and comfortable with her look and that’s one of the many reasons I enjoy working with her.


This girl is sassy, fun, strong, fearless, talented, and it’s been a trip getting to know her on a personal level. Especially since our first season of LA Style Fashion Week together – and we’ve just scratched the surface. Thank you Arlene for all that you bring to the brand, being that leader, and having such an impact on everyone around you. To many more!
