Kendall Jenner has some choice words for anyone who thinks that she has only secured appearances in catwalk shows because of her famous family. If anything, she asserts, it’s in spite of them.

I was like, ‘You know what? I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously,” she told LOVE Magazine. “People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model because of the TV show. I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn’t recognise me. I was like, ‘Thank you. Please don’t recognise me.‘”

Big sister Kim Kardashian also told the magazine how proud she is of the 18-year-old.

She had to work extra hard to gain this respect and to fight for people to see she’s serious. Marc Jacobs gave her a real shot and treated her like any other model,” Kim said. “He believed in her and opened the door for her. Then Riccardo and Karl gave her a chance and she has proven that she is the real deal. Her hard work paid off, and that makes me so proud.

But Kendall seems keen to avoid turning her catwalk appearances into a Kardashian Fashion Week circus in a bid to become just another working model.

Kim was invited to a lot of the shows that I was in,” she told the magazine. “She called me before and was like, ‘Hey, I was invited to the show, I just wanted to let you know. Do you want me to come?’ and I was like, ‘No.‘” She then added: “I’d love my sister to come, I’d love my whole family to come. But I didn’t want it to look like a family affair. I wanted this to be me. Next season? Sure but for my first season, no. I just wanted it to be something that I own.
