Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Vlada. I'm 18 years old. I'm studying Chinese and English translation. Like photo very much as you can see. Like working in fashion area and some experiments with clothes. Always ready for new experience in fashion industry.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Maybe grow up higher haha. That's it. I don't wanna change anything. I like myself as I'm.
How did you start modeling?
Once upon a time, I was walking down the street and one woman began talking with me. She said :"OMG, what a beautiful legs ( but I didn't think that haha) , you should come to model agency". She was a designer. But I didn't catch it and forgot. Some times later, when I began to promote my Instagram page ( be the way " vlada_shtepa":), one brand wrote to me and asked whether I would like to make shooting with them for their new collection of bags. I agreed. After this time I began to receive more and more massages from different shops and brands.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Modeling is not as easy as you think. Customer never knows the way of this long shooting without any even food break, or cold weather while shooting in swimsuits for summer collection. Customer just gets a good result like a picture that attracted him. What is your beauty regimen?
Sleep enough, eat healthy food, drink a lot of water. Clean up your skin every morning and evening, moisturize, no over makeup.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I'm a hardworker. Everybody tells me that. If I want something - I will get it. By all means and ways.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
It is strange, but my favorite experience was my first time on Ukrainian fashion week. I still remember this feelings of happiness and discovering something really cool and new.
What are your plans for the future?
I don't like telling my plans. You will see) But it's great, for sure.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Just keep going. No matter what they say. It's not your business. To achieve your goal - that's your business.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think it's good that we have magazines like this one. It helps people to make a contact between each other. And make modeling clear for new beginners. Wish you good luck darlings!
