Iris Delcourt’s Debut at Chanel Led to a Journey of Self Discovery

Iris Delcourt

Viva Paris
Why Not Model Management (Milan)
Viva London
Viva Barcelona



Place of Origin:
I’m from Paris, France and I still live there, for now!

Ethnic Origin:
I am a hundred percent French! Even if a part of my family is from the south I didn’t inherit the accent!



How discovered:
I was scouted 6 years ago in Paris, I had braces and a fringe! I signed with Viva two years later but only started to work this fall. It was such an incredible year, I saw myself grow in an all-new universe.

Best modeling experience so far?
I’ve had a lot of amazing opportunities this year, but my best experience is still the two weeks I spent in Barcelona, living with an inspiring photographer and meeting amazing people. This trip taught me so much as a model, but also as an artist. I travel a lot since I am a kid but this was a whole different way to discover a city and I hope to travel again very soon!

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
This year was my first year in the modeling industry but also my first year of university studies in l’École des Arts Décoratifs, where I discovered oil painting and I can’t stop obsessing about it! I’m also writing a lot currently, but don’t ask, nobody reads it!

What is something you’ve always wanted to do/try?
I’ve always wanted to be able to speak the language wherever I go. I can manage English and Spanish, I started Greek last year, and someday I will take my backpack and travel around the world because I believe it’s the best way to learn about the world, about people, and about myself.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
This may sound super cliché but it took me a while to really trust it: « the difference makes the particularity. » I believe that this advice can give a prettier perspective on the world.
