AM:How long have you been modeling? 

I was introduce to the world of Modeling at the young age of 13.

As a shy kid, my mum thought that that the industry’s spotlights, the catwalks and being taught the ‘savoir vivre’ would help me find my personality, which truly did.

AM:Share with us the highlights of your portfolio. 

I believe myself to be lucky to include multiple fashion editorials in some of Cyprus’ biggest fashion magazines in my portfolio.

The editorials later on inspired me to create my own fashion blog where I could experiment with modelling, styling and fashion photography on a daily basis.

After being called ‘shorter’ and ‘fatter’ than expected from a fashion editor in Cyprus at 15, I took a long break from modelling, limiting myself to great opportunities like Madwalk ( the biggest fashion and music event in Greece and Cyprus) and TV Commercials.

AM:Art n' Fashion:what these words mean for you? 

Even though I would love to avoid the clichés, I always viewed fashion as one of the most powerful forms of art, so as long as I am concerned, fashion and art always travelled in a pack.

In addition, the world would be a very boring place without their existence.

Not too many things have the power to express so many feelings without even a single word being spoken.

 AM:How much Social Media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat) promote a young girl to become internationally recognized? 

As a blogger myself, I have found that social media can truly help a young entrepreneur of any kind, expand their global following if of course they keep their social media profiles professional.

Social media platforms also have this unique power of connecting people and making the ‘girl next door’ the world’s next ‘IT’ girl.

On the other hand, social media platforms should be handed with caution as they can deliver an embarrassing moment equally as fast and help it go viral.

AM:In what kind of campaigns you love to take part? 

Fashion editorials are what I love the most. The fashion editors always come up with unique themes and I love seeing their personal touches in the magazine spreads.

AM:Is it possible to imagine yourself do other things in creative industry? 

I just graduated with BA Journalism which will hopefully help me launch a career as a fashion journalist in the near future.

What I am really excited about is the short styling course I will attend in September by Conde Nast, Vogue’s mother company.

 AM:What's next for you? Tell me about your future plans.

Other than the styling course, I will move to Leeds for my MA degree in Corporate Marketing Communications and Public Relations.

I hope to see myself working in a global fashion magazine as a fashion writer and stylist or be a part of a global PR firm in the near future.

Lastly, modelling is definitely in my plans as I am considering the option of joining an agency abroad.

 

AM: Thank you so much Anastasia!
