my factions, my style and my catwalk, are unique; only I can do it the way I do it causing great impact
Cristian, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion in life is undoubtedly modeling; I aspire to become a model of international stature, a European model. I started as a model any day I uploaded a photo to Facebook, which saw an agency and I liked it, they communicated with me, and that's where everything started
Who is your inspiration in life cristian? How do you keep inspired?
my inspiration is the great model winnie harlow, a model who knew how to make their difference and is now one of the top models in the world, what keeps me inspired is always all those people who are there supporting me and believe in me, seeing a great model
We all make mistakes Cristian; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
in what I have been a model I have not committed any fault with them, the mistake I made was myself at the beginning, where he did not believe in me, and I thought that because I had some scars from an accident in childhood I could not get ahead.
Cristian, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
if you are in modelling you should know that you are a mold, which is used to capture ideas, proposals and all kinds of feelings and emotions of customers, the best way to prioritise the needs of customers is to know yourself and know capture what the client looks for and expects
Please tell us cristian, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Yes, but I knew how to get everything done based on the discipline I have and the discipline I have acquired during this journey of modelling
Christian, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
It was a day in a job where the client wanted to see something very shocking; I knew I would achieve that with my different poses, my manager at that time was insisting that I make normal poses, in the end, I made normal poses and different poses. the client was happy but with the photos of different poses and I understood my manager that he was not what he said
cristian, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Something that I never forget was the day that I got a message on my facebook from a boy, who said that I WAS HIS MODEL TO FOLLOW, HIS INSPIRATION. I felt fulfilled and that I was finally beginning to fulfil one of my dreams that you were inspiring for many people
Cristian, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
It was in a job that I had to personalise a piranha; the most exciting thing was to be able to combine the makeup with the expressions of my face and the poses
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
that they believe in themselves, that they dream big because it is worth dreaming and that they always have in mind that wanting is pooder, the limits you put on your
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I seek to be an image of great brands, to be able to participate in their catwalks and to be able to do a great job in which I can include my scars combined with my exotic face, as an inclusion style
