Gigi Hadid: “Being honest always leads to something good”

Learn from your failures

“I like the ‘try and fail and try again’ method. It keeps it fun and interesting for me, and even through failures you can learn so much,” said Hadid. The model explained that whenever she’s spending time on the farm, she challenges herself to trying something new – like making her own chairs by hand, which is a current passion project.

“It’s liberating to just create without the end goal of it being necessary to finish,” she added.

“I wanted to see if I could build a wood frame first and then pour resin into it and make a clear chair. I built the wood part and then through the next step learned that you can only dry resin in small layers, and the more layers I added, the more it was clear that I didn’t make my frame tightly sealed enough. Failed miserably.”
