Standing at just a tad short of 6 feet tall, Anne Barker is the tallest among the entries of Aces & Queens for Bb. Pilipinas 2017. She is a Professional Freelance Model who has been making the rounds of both Philippine Fashion Week and the runways in a few Southeast Asian countries. Before being taken in by the camp for pageant training, she has actually been seen modeling for various top designers in the country.
I asked (half-British) Anne to introduce herself to all of you, dear readers. Here is what she has to say:
“I am 24 yrs old. I graduated at FEU with the degree of BS Tourism Management in 2013. I am a middle child sandwiched between two brothers. My mom hails from Isabela but I grew up in Makati. I learned to speak a bit of Ilocano but I am more fluent in Ibanag (a local dialect in Cagayan Valley). I have been modelling since the age of 16. I was trained by Inno Sotto on how to do proper catwalk and became one of the Fashion Watch Faces. And right after college, I was lucky enough to get job placements in Indonesia in 2013. There, I was able to walk for JKT fweek where I had the opportunity to be the finale for Ivan Gunawan – one the most well-known designers in Indonesia. I also did a Marc Jacobs show in JKT. Then I tried my luck again in HK where I got the chance to walk for some of the most renowed designers during HK fashion week, aside from doing a show for Kate Spade. Locally, I’ve been given the chance to work with some of our most talented designers like Michael Cinco, Francis Libiran, Furne One, Amir Sali and a lot more.
I am a very optimistic person and believes that there’s always room for improvement. I am a pet lover – I have 5 dogs and they’re like a family to us. I love to travel and meet different types of people and see different cultures. When I’m not booked for a fashion show, I prefer to stay at home and take care of my dogs as well as my Mom.”
So what do you think of Anne Barker, dear readers?
