Laura Whitmore: Being on the catwalk was surreal

Laura Whitmore made headlines when she walked for designer Bora Asku during London Fashion Week last month and the Bray native says it was a “surreal” experience.

“I was very nervous. I thought I was going to have a Carrie Bradshaw moment and fall over,” she said.

“It was so surreal. Bora is a friend and I’ve loved his designs for years so to be able to close his show was an honour.”

While the 29-year-old modelled when she was younger, she didn’t want to make it her career.

“I used to model when I was younger but to be honest I don’t have the patience,” she admitted.

“Those girls work so hard and being backstage I got to see first-hand the stress and hard work that goes into it all.”
