Tabea Weyrauch (b. 1994) is an up and coming model from Northern Ireland known for appearing in magazine editorials and multiple runway shows since her career began. She recently featured prominently in 2014 editorials in I Love You Magazine and Vestal Magazine. Runway shows in which Tabea Weyrauch has modeled include: Joseph, Roksanda Ilincic, and Emilia Wickstead in fall/winter 2014 and Maison Martin Margiela Haute Couture’s spring/summer 2014 collection. Before that she appeared in spring/summer 2013-2014 shows for Calvin Klein, Neil Barrett, and Leonard Paris, among others. Other prominent fashion houses she has represented are: Vivienne Westwood, Jeremy Laing, Guy Laroche, Band of Outsiders, Louis Vuitton, Issa, and Thom Browne. She has also appeared in the Joseph spring/summer 2013 lookbook, and became the representative for A Wear in the United Kingdom and Ireland in 2010 as one of her first major contracts. As well as walking the runway in various fashion shows, she appeared on the cover of the first 2011 issue of the Sunday Independent’s Life magazine.
Weyrauch became a professional model after winning the second cycle of the Irish reality television series The Model Scouts in 2010. She was born in Hamburg, Germany but grew up in Derry, Northern Ireland after moving there with her family at the age of 6. Her hobbies include travel and sightseeing, and her favorite modeling experience so far has been walking the runway in Paris couture fashion week. Weyrauch calls winning the televised competition and one-year contract with IMG “the opportunity of a lifetime,” and is very passionate about her professional modeling career. In a recent interview about her rapidly expanding modeling opportunities, she said, “I loved the travelling. One of the highlights was the fashion show in Sydney Opera House . . . you have lots of people pulling your hair and poking you, but you forget it all when you’re on the runway.” After a promising start with a modeling contract and several lucrative advertisement deals, Weyrauch is having a lot of success despite having an unlikely start to her modeling career. She has continued to achieve fame throughout the fashion world long after winning the contest that landed her in its midst.
Agencies Weyrauch works with include IMG, Uno Models, and PARS Management.
