Interview: Model Dominique de la Cruz (Germany / Spain)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I´m a German/Spanish Model living in Düsseldorf (Germany) basically. Since 14 years I´m working in the model business and love to constantly evolve. In my free time I do a lot of sports, I am interested in fashion and I love to travel.

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

I wouldn´t change anything about myself, I think every person is individual and beautiful in its own way. I think it's a pity that nowadays many young women run to the plastic surgeon and change their appearance a lot. Also I think as a model it´s very important to love yourself and therefore being able to show this at your jobs / pictures.

How did you start modelling?

I realized very early as a young child that I love being in front of the camera and slipping into different roles. I started participating in castings at 15, but was often rejected at first. At 18 I was approached on the street by a model scout and then it went quickly uphill.

What do you think of the work as a model?

Honestly, I love the job as a Model because you get to travel often and meet great people! The locations are mostly breathtaking and you can change the environment of your work from city to city. I believe that my travelling projects have given me immense exposure that wouldn’t have been possible in another career. Over the years, I have gotten flexible to changing environments from time to time! But you also need to be very flexible in time and learn to work under pressure.

What is your beauty regimen?

My beauty secret is sports, drinking a lot of water (at least 2 liters a day), no alcohol, healthy and balanced diet and starting early with anti-aging facial care and sun protection

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I am a very self-critical person and have been very disciplined and hard working from the beginning to achieve my goals. I think one of the most important qualities in the modeling business is to never give up and always believe in yourself, no matter how many rejections you get in the beginning. Furthermore, I am an ambitious and driven individual. I thrive in a goal-oriented environment where I can constantly challenge myself personally and professionally. I am always looking for an opportunity to do better and grow. These characteristics have helped me achieve success in my career.

What are your plans for the future?

My plans are more great projects and experiences as a model and to successfully build up my fashion label, which I founded with my friend and business partner.
