Kate Moss admits it ‘wasn’t easy’ growing up in Croydon and she ‘never had a plan’ for early career

‘Part of me misses the innocence, but not the place’: Kate Moss admits it ‘wasn’t easy’ growing up in Croydon after revealing she ‘never had a plan’ for her early career

Kate Moss has admitted it ‘wasn’t easy’ growing up in her home town of Croydon as she reflected on the early days of her career. 

The model, 47, said she and her pals would hang around Surrey Street Market looking for style inspiration, before she was famously discovered at the age of 14.

Kate added that she ‘never had a plan’ for the first days of her fashion career and soon had to learn to be ‘fussier’ with her modelling jobs, after struggling to manage her hectic schedule.

‘It wasn’t a time I look back on longingly’: Kate Moss, 47, has admitted it ‘wasn’t easy’ growing up in her home town of Croydon as she reflected on the early days of her career

Speaking to Reader’s Digest, Kate said she doesn’t long for her home in Croydon, south London where she spent most of her childhood.

She said: ‘As far as growing up in Croydon went, it wasn’t a time I look back on longingly, certainly not so much as the place itself. I was keen to get away.

‘There is definitely a part of me that misses the innocence of it all, but not the place.’

Kate went onto add that she didn’t plan most parts of her early career and initially said yes to all the work she was offered, after dreaming of travelling the world as a child.

She then realised she had to be more selective with jobs when she struggled to manage her busy diary. 

She continued: ‘At that point I knew I had to get serious and be a bit fussier, but until then it was really just a case of taking the offers and seeing where they went.’ 

Despite it being more than 30 years since she was first discovered, Kate has continued to rock the runway, walking in the Fendi show at Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris last month.

The star was joined by her daughter Lila for the socially-distanced fashion event, which was the first under designer Kim Jones. 

Kate become synonymous with the ‘heroin chic’ aesthetic of the 1990s due to her skinny frame and pale skin, but also branded the term ‘awful with no positive interpretation’. 

She returned to London last August after she had been isolating in her Cotswolds mansion with Lila alongside her long-term partner Count Nikolai von Bismarck and her half-sister Lottie, 22, who now lives in Los Angeles.

The troupe were also joined by Kate’s hairdresser friend James Brown.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Kate and James have been friends their entire careers, they’re like family. They’re very comfortable living together.

‘It’s an added perk that James is a hairdresser and has been able to lend his hand when it comes to overgrown roots and out of control hair.

‘Lottie, who’s dyed her hair pink in lockdown, has also formed a close bond with James – and regularly shops with him when getting food for the house.’
