Monika Jagaciak – Remi Kozdra & Kasia Baczulis for Viva Moda
Monika Jagaciak’s modeling career began in 2007 after she was encouraged by her sister to attend an open casting call at a shopping center in Poland. She was then picked up by IMG who signed her and in July 2007 she appeared on the cover of French Jalouse. Jagaciak went on to become the face of Hermes for the Fall/Winter 2007 season alongside Daria Werbowy, beating out 600 other candidates while still in primary school. Jagaciak stated in a later interview that before doing the campaign she had never heard of Hermes, nor had she heard of the photographer of the shoot Peter Lindbergh. Soon after, Jagaciak began traveling overseas for her career and in 2008 she traveled to Japan where she landed the cover of Elle. In May 2008 she appeared for the second time on the cover of French Jalouse, and in October 2008 Jagaciak also landed covers for Japanese Harper’s Bazaar, and Japanese Spur. Since then Jagaciak has shot editorials for magazines such as Numéro, Japanese Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, and Teen Vogue.
Monika Jagaciak’s runway debut was in 2009 at New York Fashion Week where she opened and closed for Calvin Klein, thus making her one of the most successful new models of the season. Since then she has walked at London, Milan, New York, and Paris fashion weeks in shows such as Shiatzy Chen, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Prada, Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Gucci, Alexander Wang, Armani Privé, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Elie Saab, and Valentino. She currently appears in the Fall/Winter 2010 campaign for Valentino alongside Freja Beha Erichsen, the Fall 2010 Chanel beauty campaign, the Fall 2010 Marc Jacobs campaign, alongside Frida Gustavsson and Ann Kenny, but her contract with Calvin Klein ended for Fall/Winter 2010, and Jagaciak was subsequently replaced by Dutch model Lara Stone.
Since signing with IMG in 2007 Monika Jagaciak has been given the nickname ‘Jac’ by the agency, and it is now the name to which she is known by. Jagaciak is currently ranked 10th on the Top 50 Models Women List by models.com.
