FEATURED MODEL: Laura Silva
How Did you get started in Modeling?
Modeling was a dream that I had since I was a child because in my country miss Venezuela is very popular since we were little we grew up with that beauty culture when I grew up I attracted to my life unconsciously I worked in events and one thing was leading to another I began to do casting And likewise, and without realizing it, I was already involved in modeling. A model friend took me to a very well-known agency in Venezuela of the best Agency SOLO MODEL and it was there that my career really began.
I did not stop working and although I was studying business administration my work commitments in the artistic environment did not allow me to exercise administration since then I dedicated my life to my passion, I enjoyed my work to the fullest.
After so many projects carried out in TV commercials and print advertising catalogs, I dedicated myself to studying acting and preparing to be a host.
I was chosen to work on a television channel in a very famous Lottery program and Iworked too in a famous Tv Show ntrevistas con el Deporte In Meridiano .
Anything funny that happened during a casting?
Casting is part of the day to day of a model. I have always said that in a carting they demand more from you than in the project itself.
When you are doing casting you are so nervous and pending to do it well that the adrenaline does not let you even think, after you do it you say Ohhhh!!!! it was very fun, on one occasion I had to do a group casting where we pretended that we were dressing in fast camera when you see the video is that you die of laughter each casting is a unique experience.
What Does Fashion mean to you?
For me fashion is a way of expressing how you feel, it is art, it is feeling, it is Passion.
