[Un]Discover: Tsanna LaTouche

It has been a whirlwind two years for Tsanna LaTouche. The Jamaican-Indian model, who was born in Canada and calls Ajax home, has been jetting around the world from international runways in Milan, New York and Berlin to location shoots for magazines like Glamour, Cosmo, Marie Claire, Elle, Glow and LouLou. LaTouche penciled me into her packed schedule between a swimwear photoshoot in the Maldives and preparations for the upcoming season of fashion shows. Read the interview after the jump.

How did you get into modeling?

Well as I was growing up everyone made the comment that I should model but my parents rule was that I would finish high school first. A year after finishing high school I tried my luck with Sutherland and it turned out they loved my look. So I've been a model since.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in modeling?

I've always loved artistic things but I needed to find a way to make it a career. So modeling seemed like a good bet. I get to work with amazing designers and try amazing new things on shoots.

If you weren't a model what would you be doing?

If I wasn't modeling I would probably be taking some business or art courses in Toronto.

Where have you traveled for modeling?

Many places. New York, London, Milan, Barcelona, South Africa and the Maldives.

Which city was your favourite?

Well I don't think I have a favourite. I like certain things about all the places I've been. However I do love London's fashion...and SHOPPING.

What has been your most memorable modeling experience?

For sure working with Cosmo in the Maldives. Great team, great shoot not to's the Maldives!! The beach is amazing and the experience has been amazing!

You've had the opportunity to work with some very big names. Who has been your favourite? Who surprised you the most?

I don't have a favourite. I love shooting with different photographers because they all see things in their own way. But I do love working with my Toronto photographers. They're like family.

Which do you prefer: runway or editorials and why?

I prefer runway because I like the rush I get before I walk onto the runway. I more like editorial when it's on location rather than in the studio. Then you get into the mood.

Which designer, photographer, stylist, model, makeup artists, etc. living or dead would you love to work with?

Alexander McQueen, of course! He was amazing!

Who are your favourite designers? Why?

Alexander Maqueen because he was so amazing and different. Also Chanel because the clothes are always so simple yet gorgeous.

What is next for you (campaigns, editorials, etc.)?

I'm not sure but what ever it is im ready for it.
