Model Citizen: Belle Browns

Belle’s modeling journey began when Domenic Commisso decided that she needed to participate in his upcoming presentation at the ABA hair show when she was 14. She continued participating in shows and shoots with him throughout high school and put everything behind her when she moved to Montréal to complete her degree in Linguistics at Concordia University. When she moved back to Toronto, Domenic asked her to participate in another of his upcoming shoots where she had the pleasure of working with photographer Natasha Gerschon. Natasha pushed Belle to find an agency and pursue modelling further. She signed with STRUTT shortly after.
Since starting with STRUTT a year ago, Belle has worked to improve her modelling skill set and portfolio. She has worked with a number of talented photographers in different styles and is currently the face of Don’t Blow the Illusion swimwear. This allowed her to branch into acting and film. She has since worked in a number of commercials and joined ACTRA as an apprentice. She has recently been booked for multiple runway shows in Fashion Art Toronto this April. Outside of modeling, Belle works as a Certified Holistic Practitioner, encouraging people to eat mindfully and live a life in which they thrive. She can usually be found reading a book, drinking tea or doing yoga (and sometimes playing N64).
Belle hopes to pursue both modeling and acting further, branching out to international agencies which would enable her to work her way around the world. “
