The High Rise
Georgia Hilmer is more than just another pretty face. She is a total self-proclaimed nerd with a killer Instagram to boot. How many 16 year olds do you know who would put their modeling career on hold and make the fashion industry wait for two years while they finished high school?
We can think of one – one who, at only 21 years of age, seems wise beyond her years.
Born and raised in Jersey City, Georgia was discovered while at the movie. Super casual. She was seeing The Blind Side.
From there she signed with an agent and ditched three weeks of school to walk in Milan Fashion Week. But even after all of that, Georgia decided that modeling could wait; school was her priority.
Fast forward three years, her commitment to getting an education hasn’t wavered despite her success. Georgia balances her college life as a student in NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, designing her own major, with the grueling, but occasionally glamorous life of a working model.
When not holed up in the Library, Georgia can be see on the runways of Chanel, Dior, Saint Laurent, Celine, Lanvin, and Margiela to name a few.
