Labelled as Grazia Magazine’s “one to watch”, Zara Martin has already graced the glossy pages of Elle, Company, Look, Tatler and Marie Claire magazine. The model/presenter/journalist is the face of her newly launched fashion line – ‘BodyAmr and Zara Martin’ as well as Olivia Rubin and Mechante of London.
A familiar face to the fashion crowd, this year Zara also reported backstage at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.
Well, here at Push HQ we are very happy that the beautiful Miss Martin took some timeout for a quick interview with us.

I’m yet to have sworn on live TV.

My BlackBerry. Sad, but true.

Party At Your Mama’s House.
What would it stock?
The ‘BodyAmr and Zara Martin’ capsule collection as well as the other brands I’ve modeled for: Olivia Rubin, Mechante of London, Domakaya, Lucy In Disguise and Corlette. It would also have to stock some vintage books, instant Lomography cameras and cookies from the Biscuit Tin Bakers and would be blasting Etta James & Lenny Kravitz records. Wow, I’ve clearly put too much thought into this…Off to register the name…
What’s next for Zara Martin?
I’m a superstitious freak, but I will say – it’s all very exciting at the moment!
