My name is Susan Wayland or simply Sway. I was born on June 23rd, 1980, in Leipzig, Germany, and I also grew up in this beautiful city. As a teenager I got some experience with modeling or similar forms of it. In my school years, I loved drama, playing different characters, fulfilling the role. I was a part in different theater projects like “Romeo and Juliet” or “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” from Shakespeare. In those parts, I lived my first passion for the stage and for acting and enjoyed playing different personalities, additionally there were my aesthetically interest in the material latex.
Beside various model jobs I began to collegiate study, concentrating in History and the German language and literature studies. I moved to the city Brunswick, where I still live today. Parallel to the study I put many time in my model career and had the opportunity to collaborate with talented photographer and designer of the latex scene and beyond. Since my successful graduation at the university in the year 2007 I working as model for latex couture, glamour and fashion. In 2009 I started creating latex fashion designs and since 2014 I’m the editor and designer of the latex couture e-magazine “Finest-Addiction”.
“Susan Wayland is an internationally acclaimed model with a creative output that is primarily associated with latex fashion design. Her extravagant attire and her original style are her trademark and signify an inimitable incarnation of the modern womanliness. She has been featured on many magazine covers, has presented creations by top latex designers on international runways and also has an impressive portfolio that includes music videos as well as short films. Her impeccable eye for style and design allowed her to expand her activities beyond modeling. Her own latex creations, her individually created looks for photo projects, but also her craftiness as hair stylist and make-up artist elevate this brilliant lady above the mainstream. Her signature designs are an intricate part of the creative work she is connected with and cause a never before seen claim towards perfection and creative artistry personified in an exceptionally beautiful woman.” Dr. Paul Sernine
