Born in Hamburg and raised in Derry, Tabea Weyrauch rapidly shot to fame after winning RTE’s The Model Scouts in 2010, securing a worldwide contract with IMG.
After a number of years traveling and working around the world Tabea is back in Ireland and Distinct Model Management are delighted to be acting as her mother agency.
A regular on the catwalks at London, Paris and New York fashion weeks to name just a few, Tabea has walked for designers such Calvin Klein, Vivienne Westwood, Oscar De La Renta, and Louis Vuitton. As we caught up with Tabea we asked her some of her favourite fashion moments so far…
Favourite show: I loved walking in Marc Jacobs' collection for Louis Vuitton in the Louvre museum in Paris. The call time was 3am and I remember they glued us into our shoes, but the show itself was so beautiful I got goosebumps as I walked!
Favourite place to work: I'm spoiled for choice! I've spent a lot of time in the concrete jungle that is New York, but, in contrast, my favourite place to work is probably New Zealand. The scenery is so mountainous and beautiful - not unlike Ireland- the people are relaxed and friendly, and I got to shoot on some beautiful black sand beaches.
Favourite photographer: When I started modeling, one of my first shoots was with an amazing greek photographer named Errikos Andreou. We ran around the streets of Paris in the middle of the night, shooting in the middle of the busy avenue outside the Opera house, and in the Tuileries gardens. It was so much fun!
