Model Elfie Reigate has declared Kate Moss is “the best boss ever”.
The budding fashion star is the daughter of Kate’s close friend, and former model, Rosemary Ferguson, and was the first female to sign to the catwalk queen’s Kate Moss Agency, and has gone on to bag jobs for Alexander McQueen, Burberry, and Simone Rocha, among other big names.
“It’s like a family,” Reigate told MatchesFashion of the agency. “Kate is the best boss ever. If I get a great job, I’ll get a call from Kate saying, ‘Yay!'”
Kate launched her eponymous agency in 2016.
Reflecting on her childhood, which included being a bridesmaid for Kate when she wed then-husband Jamie Hince in 2011, Elfie remembered how the veteran model would look after her while her mum, who has since launched a career as a nutritionist, was working.
“She’d drive me down to the country if mum had a job, then she would stop at a garage and go, ‘Do you want anything?’ So, being six years old, I’m like, ‘Um, yes’, and we’d go into the shop and come out with bags and bags of sweets. Mum would arrive two hours later and say, ‘Kate, what have you done? She’s bouncing off the walls!’ So yeah, she’s good fun,” she recalled.
Kate has also served as style inspiration for the 20-year-old model.
“I think my style is quite eclectic. So maybe a bit of (rapper) A$AP Rocky, probably quite a lot of Kate, a lot of my mum and also my stepdad – even though he’s not that into fashion, he ends up getting it right by accident,” she smiled.
