Eva, your journey in the world of fashion has been remarkable. Can you share how your experiences have shaped your perception of femininity and how it’s portrayed in the industry?

I’ve never thought of myself as beautiful, I knew I wasn’t ugly but I never really owned my beauty. After my first season, I started to realise beauty comes from so many different places, I feel like my feminine side just started to grow.

As a model, you’ve represented various brands and styles like Versace, Tom Ford, The Attico, and Dior. How do you manage to maintain your unique identity while adapting to different fashion aesthetics and ideals?

It’s easy to manage because I enjoy it so much. I loved being the cute girl, a baddie I love to transform into every kind of character, coming from my dancing past.

Diversity is a topic of growing importance in the fashion world. How do you believe it can be further embraced?

I personally think that it’s slowly going in the right direction, the younger generation is more open. I think everyone should focus on themselves and not judge other people by their looks.

Body positivity has become a central theme in recent years. How do you personally promote body positivity, both in your career and your own life?

Body positivity has always been important to me. First, you have to love yourself and accept the way you look and the things that you can’t change about your body. I promote it by showing people that it’s okay to be different.

Self-esteem is a fundamental aspect of individual well-being. Could you share some strategies, or experiences, that’ve contributed to your self-esteem and confidence?

I don’t think there are strategies for that, you need to focus on yourself and try to grow as a person so your self-esteem will grow as well.

The journey to self-acceptance is one that many individuals can relate to. What advice can you give to those who are working towards greater self-acceptance and self-love?

For the girls, who are struggling with self-love I would say don’t listen to what society tells you.

In the competitive world of fashion, how do you maintain a healthy work-life balance while staying true to your values?

I don’t think about it as a competition, I stopped looking at girls as my rivals, we are all just trying our best. I stay true to myself by respecting others and never forgetting where I came from.

Looking ahead, what are your aspirations for your career and the messages you hope to convey through your work in the future

The reason I started modeling was to challenge myself in life, to not take the easy road all the time. I hope that one day I can inspire people, to do the same.
