Age: Ageless



How long have you been modelling for?

I’ve been modelling for two years, but before that I was a fashion editor and stylist.



What are you secretly good at outside of modelling?

Finding a way to change a negative atmosphere to a positive one. Not always easy. Styling up a dull room to within an inch of its life. Making homemade blackberry crumble.



What’s your favourite Jigsaw piece you were photographed in?

My number one has to be the Silk Velvet Jumpsuit. Sleek and gorgeous. Number two was the Wide Leg Jean with the Cotton Tee. I could go on…

Age: Ageless



How long have you been modelling for?

More than 20 years. I shot my first job for Vogue and my first cover back in 1999 when I was a schoolgirl.



What are you secretly good at outside of modelling?

Before modelling, I trained as a ballet and contemporary dancer. I’ve also always loved creative writing and photography - I'm intent on capturing moments and sharing stories through directing, acting, writing, dancing and modelling. For me, they all fit together rather well.



What’s your favourite Jigsaw piece you were photographed in?

As an Irish-blooded, British-humoured girl, I am always drawn to great knitwear - ideally in strong block colours. And cool suits. I loved those pieces the most.

Model: Erika Wall

Age: Ageless



How long have you been modelling for?

20 years.



What are you secretly good at outside of modelling?

I like making things with my hands - at the moment I’m knitting a pair of trousers for a friend’s baby. I’ve worked as a photographer, made props for a set designer and I’m currently working with a friend to create portraits of women. I’m also revisiting photographers that photographed me over the years, taking portraits of them as a long-term project.



What’s your favourite Jigsaw piece you were photographed in?

There were many good pieces, but today, in cold Sweden, I’m missing the beautifully-made knitwear.

Model: Stephanie Grainger

Age: 67



How long have you been modelling for?

I’d been modelling for 38 years, when I stepped out one day and thought, ‘I’m getting too old for this’. Two years later I was scouted again whilst shopping. I am so happy to be back and having the best time.



What are you secretly good at outside of modelling?

I love nothing more than hitting the auctions and markets and searching for that special addition to my collection of jewellery, bric-à-brac and paintings. I’m not an expert by any means, but it’s my perfect pleasure.



What’s your favourite Jigsaw piece you were photographed in?

I find it hard to choose a favourite outfit as I liked them all. Because of its beautiful colour I’d have to say, The Turquoise Dress.
