World Class: Rosanne van Welzen and European Top Models

European Top Models operates in 19 countries with a luxury resort in Maldives  (aka  “Paradise on Earth.”)  MARIE CLAIRE has already discovered the destination’s wondrous tropical delights.  LauraWil Intercultural plans to position Maldives as Hollywood’s eco-friendly vacation getaway of choice.  ETM will thus be on the cutting edge of our increasingly cosmopolitan city.

ETM has wisely awarded 18-year-old Dutch model Rosanne van Welzen for all her remarkable qualities.  When Rosanne was younger she loved making drawings and designs.  She has been dancing all her life, not remembering the time of her first moves.  Now drawing is one of Ms. van Welzen’s majors and she has learned several different types of dance.  She also plays the piano and writes poems and lyrics.  While learning to play the guitar, she is finding her voice as a singer.

Just last year Rosanne came into contact with modeling when asked to do a test shoot by a photographer at a salsa party.  From the first moment she loved being part of the creative process.  After a short period of active shoots, her career as a model has extended to catwalk as well.  Rosanne is already a published model for SEG Fashion in Holland and the cover model for the ETM Guide.

“One of my biggest ambitions is to grow and move forward as a professional model.  I will take on virtually every challenge to reach a higher level,” van Welzen claims.  “I am independent, motivated, and curious to meet new people and have new experiences.”

Taking Rosanne at her word, I have pitched many ideas for Fashion’s Night Out and Fashion Week in Amsterdam and LA.  Perhaps she could even link up with Dutch idol Doutzen Kroes.  And why not try a Dior couture shoot at Chateau Marmont should she ever come to the area??  The US warmly welcomes those who want to fly on the wings of their beautiful dreams.
