- What are your favorites for doing something your audience cares about?
Recently I noticed that my audience loves fashion outfits such as nice dresses or ripped jeans paired with stunning designer high heels. They also look forward to posts about travel, health, body, and beauty. I always try to keep my theme “positive vibes” and I really hope to submit that feeling towards people.
- If you get a chance to describe yourself in three words, what would it be?
Honest, loving and caring.
- What do you think is your greatest strength as a model?
Even though I look like a certain type of woman, my face can look very different with different styling and makeup. I can look so different that you won’t even recognize me anymore, so I can be very changeable.
4. Could you tell us about your daily routine?
My day starts early in the morning. While I am still in bed I start doing a few exercises for my belly and waist. I also work part-time at an office which is my regular job. After work, I like cooking a fresh, delicious healthy meal. Recently I have opted out of eating out as I want to know what I am eating and want to have full control over that. Then I spend my time on my modeling projects, on social media co-operations and networking. I spend my weekends with friends and family as much as I can.
5. When and how did you start in the fashion industry?
If I remember right, I was about 20 years old when a fashion photographer, Markus Jerko in Vienna, took my first photoshoot. He was very delighted by our shooting results and he advised me to do more photo shoots with other photographers too. Initially, I got into the industry. Back then there was no Instagram, no Facebook – there was hardly any Photoshop editing. I did my first shoots in the studio with a camera where they had to develop the photos in a darkroom. No going backward and deleting the bad ones out. You had a few shots and every pose had to be exactly on point at that moment or the photo was ruined and had to be redone.
6. How do you define your style?
My style mostly depends on my mood. Most of the time I like to wear denim jeans and a nice top or shirt, as you can see on my Instagram. When I want to feel extra special or glam, I put on some nice heels and a beautiful dress. I love accessories to upgrade an outfit or to have a staple piece in my look. My wardrobe is mainly black, white, blue, nude, gold and silver color-themed. Those are the go-to colors that I think combined in the right way, fits almost every occasion.
7.Who is your favorite designer and why?
Clothing wise regarding a certain designer, I own the most of Versace because, as I said before, I am a lot of black and gold and Versace always brings out elegantly in their style. For everyday clothes, I like to shop at Zara, H&M, Asos, Missguided and Naked Wardrobe most of the time.
For shoes, it would be Christian Louboutin. I already own a few pairs that I always save up for, or I get them for my birthday or Christmas because everyone who knows me, knows how much I love and appreciate them.
Regarding bags, I would go with Chanel. For example, their classic Chanel 2.55 medium flap bag in black is such a statement piece that has been around for years, it is so timeless in my opinion and you cannot go wrong with it. I don’t own any Chanel bag yet, but it is on my savings dream wish list for someday in the future. Santa can you hear me? *laughs*
8. What is the major tool for success as a model in the fashion industry?
That’s a very difficult question. I think you need a good agency or a good agent and you must be active and dedicated too. Build yourself a strong network. Be always on time, work hard and enjoy later. Be kind to everyone and thankful for every opportunity you get in life!
9.How do you motivate yourself when things get rough for you?
I love watching other people’s motivating stories on going to YouTube. It reminds me that I am not the only one who is currently going through a rough time or struggling with something. It gives me inner strength to read supportive comments. That is why I love to answer back to my followers too because interacting with people gives me love and support that I need when I am not feeling so good and that’s what keeps me motivated to continue to do what I am doing.
10. Is there anyone in the fashion industry that inspires you?
So many people. I love to get inspired every day. No matter if it is by a special designer, advertising, a fashion show, the women on the street. I love to watch people on the street and look what they are wearing and how they style their looks. I love to browse through other bloggers and models accounts to get inspired. One of my most favorite models lately has been Romee Strijd who models for Victoria Secret. Her style is so cool, classy, yet young and chic. She has such a kind attitude, I really enjoy what she is doing.
11. What do you like outside of fashion?
Being active outside in the nature like hiking really gives me joy and I love traveling and sight-seeing in different cities. Europe has a lot to offer and it is only a short flight distance away from me.
12. Which social media platform are you most active on?
The most active I am on my Instagram account, where I do a lot of comments and like other people’s photos too.
13. What kind of content interests you?
I am interested in so many different things: new fashion looks, to learn about make-up products, tips, and tricks. Travel vlogs are also so relaxing for me to watch.
14.What magazines do you subscribe to?
My most favorite would be the British Vogue.
