Introducing Coco Fierce - Now Blogging For Retrodec!

Posted on Thursday, 31 January 2013 06:01PM by


I am Haili Hughes, probably better known by my alter-ego Coco Fierce. I have been modelling for around a year and a half and in that time I achieved the kind of success that someone like me can only dream of, including modelling at London Fashion week, being published in over 40 magazines and modelling for around 45 designers. I still regularly have to pinch myself! Just two years ago, I was 17 stone and although, I was overtly alternative, I didn't seem to really get noticed. After losing 6.5 stone, I rediscovered my confidence and modelling has made me feel like a woman finally!

When I am not modelling I also have the rather stressful job of being a Secondary school English teacher...which I actually love. I meet such wonderful kids everyday and despite people constantly telling me how much they hate teenagers, I have to say that I love them. Although, perhaps this is because I am pretty much on the same wavelength as them and my sense of humour has not really developed in the last 15 years.

Before I was a teacher I was a journalist at a now defunct national newspaper, which shall not be named...I always wanted to be a writer my whole life. I am convinced that if I would have started my career at a magazine or even a local newspaper, rather than a national, I would probably still be doing it. Luckily, sue to making a name for myself in the rockabilly world, I have managed to secure myself a couple of columns in magazines and can now be spotted every month in American Pin Up magazine 'Delicious Dolls' and 'UK Rock n Roll' magazine. I will also be contributing to this wonderful blog a couple of times a month of course!
