Today we have here the beautiful international teen modeling superstar Arinka Anfalova (@arinka_anfalova). Model for luxury brand house Mischka Aoki, brand ambassador for Adrianna Ostrowska, cat walking in New York at just 11 years of age… and ehmm… you were telling before you want to be a pilot in the future…?
Yes, I wanted to be pilot, but now I want to be a designer. In a few days you can watch a video about my first flight as a co-pilot. You’ll find it on my youtube channel.
Now I’m a designer for a Russian brand, at the moment we are preparing the new collection for Summer 2019.
Cool… Working for Mischka Aoki must have been like a dream, tell me about it…
I was working in such beautiful dresses. And it was really cool. I was so happy when I saw our works result in Mischka’s instagram account.
Do you have any favorite top model…?
My favorite model is Gigi Hadid… Some people say, that I look like her (a little bit 😉)
Ahah yes I think so too… It always amazes me when I see girls that start modeling at such young age, what’s your story, how did you get into modeling?
My friend from school told me about her work as a model… and I asked my mother to help me start my modeling career… My first casting was for the school wear photoshoot. And second, I did a casting for the DLT kids show (DLT is the biggest department store in Russia).
…do you have any favorite music you listen to when you wake up or at a show?
My favorite music group is BTS. And I listen to BTS everywhere.
BTS hmm…? I’ll check them out later… Tell me about the funniest thing that happened at a fashion show… You must have some stories…
When I came to New York for the anti-bullying show, I was sure about my dress for the opening catwalk. But the designer changed her mind before the start… And I had to wear 2 dresses… And I only had 3 minutes to change my clothes and run to the main runway… pff. But I did it.
It was nice to chat with you today Arinka, we’ll do it again soon…
Yes, okay 👌🏻. Hope to see you soon.
