As part of this week’s #everyBODY Q&A, we introduce to you our model Alicia! A true Parisian, we asked Alicia what she loves most about living in the beauty city of Paris, as well as what’s the best piece of advice she’s ever received. Read our interview here…
We recently expanded our size range from size 14-26 to size 8-28 – do you see this as a positive change?
I think it is a great idea to represent all women! I tend to think that brands that are limited to a standard size are boring and not at all trend-setting. Your initiative proves that you want to re-new and diversify. It is a very good step forward.
What do you like most about working in the fashion industry?
What I like most about my job is travelling but also meeting lots of people, and different cultures! It is so interesting. I change teams and places all the time. I do not have time to be bored.
What’s your favourite piece from the collection?
Difficult question because I like several pieces of your collection! I have a crush on your long coats, I love these kind of coats! I would say 2 pieces really stand out,the tulip statement shear-ling coat and the long khaki trench (coming soon!).
When you’re not modelling, how do you spend your downtime?
When I am not working, I take the opportunity to rest and see the ones I love. I also like simple things like going for a walk in Paris, seeing art exhibitions, not forgetting to go window shopping like all girls.
You live in Paris, what do you love most about the city?
To eat and hang out in the streets I would say Saint-Germain-des-Prés. To find super fun and trendy bars I would say Le Marais. There are super cute places everywhere but also great shops and whacky art galleries!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Be yourself, others are already taken, or live your dreams but do not dream your life.
