Born and raised in Bern, Switzerland, Andrea Hutchinson has a globally focused and creative mind. She became a model at the age of 16, walking the design-forward catwalks of Europe, and her passion for fashion has never abated. As a model, Andrea was immersed in the ‘nitty-gritty’ of leading fashion events. As Modelling Director for FASHFEST (and also Co-founder), Andrea leads a team of 140 models, who are charged with bringing fashion design to life on the catwalk. Andrea’s ability to forge close relationships with models, designers, stylists, directors, publicists and photographers at FASHFEST is second to none.
