A blond-hair, green-eyed Scandinavian beauty, Paige K., was born and raised in Edmonton, Alta., where she lived for 15 years until she made a recent move to Penticton, B.C.

Now signed by Richards, Paige was originally coerced by her grandfather to visit Vancouver to pursue a career in the fashion industry. For the fairly young model, the move to Penticton forced her to become more confident, which helped her on her first shoot. Although she has only done one thus far, she has already fallen in love with the industry for its many wonderful aspects: "Everyone involved gets to contribute to telling a story in a photograph: the model, photographer, hair stylist, make-up artist and wardrobe stylist. It's a wonderful process."

Paige experiments with her personal style but mostly gets her inspiration from current fashion trends, swaying towards earth tones in fabrics of lace and silk and simple pieces that pair together effortlessly: "I find inspiration from people who intrigue me with their style whether it's at school, on the street or online. I try to stay very open minded." Paige also shares that she can't live without denim, ballet flats, and her hair straightener.

In terms of her future, Paige's ultimate aspiration is the Victoria's Secret show: "The atmosphere seems so fun and girly." With the ethereal looks of a top model, the odds are on her side.
