Londone is a true creative, merging the worlds of her modeling career and personal hobby into one. When she’s not ripping the runway or posing for Vogue, H&M, Coach or Nordstrom, she uses her spare time to create dolls that are inspired by some of the biggest names in fashion.
Hailing from the small town of Lawrenceville, Georgia, Londone loves anything that has to do with sculpting and desigining. Last year she told Interview magazine that she would’ve stayed in the world of undertaking if she didn’t become a model. When the 22-year-old isn’t bringing her cropped afro and runway physique to the nearest photo lens, she loves to craft dolls out of clay, painting them in bright, attractive colors while fashioning them after big-named designers.
Londone simply loves the arts. When she’s not crafting fashion inspired dolls by hand, she has a serious love for anime (which she says others won’t admit to) and anything that has to do with horror films. But she considers making dolls her greatest achievement, simply because she told herself she could.
