Tell us a bit about your story, did you always want to be a model? Why did you choose to pursue a career as a model?

My life has always been amazing and multifaceted. Working in fashion at different times, I have accepted many challenges of fate, whatever they may be: a designer's assistant, a model agent, a marketer ... now all this has resulted in one whole - a fashion producer. From time to time, during campaigns, I manage to take a model role on a set for a bit, but this is rather an exception.

What do you enjoy most about modeling?

Most of all, I enjoy contributing to successful projects of my clients, to participate in brainstorm meetings. 

Could you tell us a bit about the shoot that you have modeled for that is in our magazine? Does it mean any significance for you?

This specific photoshoot has a profound meaning for me personally, as I’m carrying a personal responsibility for the success of our family restaurant business and I hope this contribution will bring more clients to this newly established platform.

What is your biggest accomplishment so far? 

I love to see my clients' success, to see them grow and prosper - that’s the biggest gratitude for me. I want to be that one step in their success stories, someone who helps people achieve their dream.

What do you hope to accomplish through producing, do you have any big goals for the future? 

One of my global goals is to launch a show at the same level as Victoria’s Secret, but with a variety of designers.

If you could choose to work with anyone, your dream brand who would you want to model for? 

I like Dolce&Gabbana campaigns and their style. It’s my dream to work with professionals of their level.


If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be? 

I wish more designers joined the environmentally-friendly movement and improved their operations to make production greener.

What would be your dream shoot set up?

I’d love to make a project with Condé Nast. 

What is the best advice you’ve been given? 

So far the best advice I was given to is - never be afraid of trying new things.

Do you have any tips for people who want to start in the modeling industry? 

I would suggest them not to waste their time and contact me (laughs).
