ABOUT

We are twin models who work together, live together and dress similarly creating Double Fashion. :) We also create hidden camera TV show as twins.

Nina & Nita, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

Our passion is to create something new and artistic as we are very creative persons and we love to be on stage. Our heads are always full of ideas of new outfits or new photos or tv scripts. Being in front of the camera has always been in us since we were kids. We started modelling together at the age of 9 when local newspaper wanted to cast twin models.

Who is your inspiration in life Nina & Nita? How do you keep inspired?

Our family. They raised us very well with love and discipline and to be down-to-earth. Those values we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We also get inspired by hard working people who have goals in life but are also able to live in this very moment.

We all make mistakes Nina & Nita; 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.

Well, as we work almost always together, sometimes we have had little fights between each other over meaningless things. Like hairstyles or makeups. :)

Nina & Nita, 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?

We make a list of each gig and client and keep a calendar to be able to handle everything. Being organised is the key thing. :)

Please tell us, Nina & Nita, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

Sometimes it gets very busy, and there are multiple bookings for the same day. Then we use the "first-in" basis strategy to keep the client who first scheduled us, or, as modelling is also making business, we have to choose the highest paid gig above others.

Nina & Nita, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

In this field, we feel like we constantly convince clients and people as we work a lot on our own, besides our agent and manager. A good sample is when a client wanted to book a single model for a campaign/trade show. As we are also business savvy, we realised the promotion and sales for the brand would be much greater having twins rather than a single person. We created statistics for the client and showcased our resumes and skills, created a whole new marketing idea to boost their sales having twin models.

Nina & Nita, 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?

Walking in LA Fashion Week's Runway. When we were little girls, that was only a dream for us, and now we have been doing that every year. The feeling when you walk in the runway in front of the live audience is so unique compared to print photoshootings. Remember, dreams are meant to come true.

Nina & Nita, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

We always have plenty of different ideas as we are very creative persons. We get super excited every time we have some ideas in our head. And then we yell at each other and throw more ideas to each other. :) The most difficult part is to find the right location, accessories and simply, set up a time that fits everyone's schedule!

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Be humble, kind and easy to work with. Respect your clients and don't be cocky. That's super important. Being kind to others is something we appreciate a lot. And dedicate your time to push yourself towards your goals and passion. Nothing comes for free. We have worked and sacrificed a lot to get ourselves where we want to be. When you put enough effort, life will reward you at some point. But if you sit on the couch every day wishing something would happen, you might have to wait a long time.
