Model Laura in Vogue

Agyness Deyn
A MODEL who appears on the cover of June’s edition of UK Vogue used to work at a Rossendale chip shop.

Laura Hollins, who appears under the supermodel pseudonym Agyness Deyn, is hotly tipped as the new Kate Moss.

As a teenager she worked at The Village Chippy, in Stubbins, near Ramsbottom.

The current face of Mulberry, she walked almost every major catwalk this season, and has landed ad campaigns with Giorgio Armani and Burberry.

She has also appeared on the front of Italian Vogue and the May 2007 American issue, with a crop of fellow new supermodels.

New York-based Laura attended All Saints Catholic Language College, in Rawtenstall and Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School Sixth Form, in Waterfoot.

advertisementShe studied A levels in maths, business studies and theatre studies, before leaving in 2001.

Her rise to the top began after she left Rossendale for London with friend Henry Holland, who she met while working at the chippy.

She was spotted by a model scout and Henry went on to found the design company House of Holland, stocked in Barneys and Harvey Nichols.
