She has also appeared in H&M and Pull and Bear ad campaigns and is currently in Paris working on new projects.
“I am satisfied with everything I have done. The best moments for me last season was when I appeared at Fashion Week in Milan, I then had to go back to Switzerland to school, then a few days later I was exclusively booked to do a Louis Vuitton show in Paris,” Sestic told Büro 24/7, adding that it was a fantastic feeling when she found out she was selected to model at Marc Jacobs collection review .
Sestic’s career in the world of modelling begun when she was spotted in Zagreb, Croatia by modelling agent Tihana Harapin-Zalepugin whilst she was visiting her grandparents. Born in Bern, Sestic says that her favourite fashion designer is Versace and hopes one day to grace the cover of Vogue Magazine.
