How discovered:
I was discovered on Facebook. A photographer in Buenos Aires scouted me and introduced me to an agency. It’s been 3 years now.
What was your first modeling job?
I started in Argentina with a few campaigns, and then my first runway was in Milan for Bottega Veneta. I was a bit nervous the first time but also very excited to be a part of the show. Since I was little I had always dreamt of working for a modeling agency.
Favorite things:
I really love to read books, my favorite book is the Alchemist.
What are you listening to at the moment?
I listen a lot of Argentine music, but I am rather open to all music in general.
Favorite movie, tv show:
There is a large category of films that I like but if I had to choose one in particular it would be Eat Pray Love. I’m not a big fan of television.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
It is difficult to say just one designer, they all have a way of working and a vision that is interesting in their own particular way. My favorite fragrance is Carolina Herrera, I don’t use many make up products, I like to stay rather natural.
What were you doing before modeling?
Before modeling I was in school studying, and occasionally worked in a bar while finishing my studies.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I really like psychology and social behaviour studies. After modeling I’d hope to continue my studies in psychology but before all be able to travel the world.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I don’t really know if what I do is cool or not. For example I love to sleep and take naps and listen to music. Is it cool or not? Haha
Favorite modeling experience so far?
The Chanel runway show is a really memorable moment for me as it was my very first fashion week in Paris, and I was with four friends from Argentina. It was in February.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
What I miss the most is the tranquility, the fields, nature. However what I miss the most when I am away from home is my family, my brothers, and my friends. But I also can adapt to change in cities and I love to travel.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
All of them. I’d love to work with Chanel again; I also admire Mario Testino as a photographer.
Place you would love to visit:
If I had to choose a city it would be Barcelona, or somewhere by the sea : I like the idea of living somewhere tranquil and calm, I see myself by the sea somewhere in Argentina.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Of course, my passion currently is modeling. Outside of modeling I love to write but only for me.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Believe in what you want to do and do it. I should really believe in myself and in my career.
