TBT: The Brazilian Beauty Behind 'IT GIRLS' (March 2014)

Take fashion designer, add fashion blogger and curator of It Girls, mix that with college student. Welcome to the life of a young lady who wears many different hats.


When did you first fall in love with fashion?

My mom owns a shoe factory and she is also a fashion designer. So, by the age of 13, I was already traveling with her while she was doing fashion research. At the time, I was also modeling at Ford Models. I believe that's when I first understood the fashion industry and began to love it.

Do you have a specific icon that inspires your look?

Not anyone in particular. My inspiration comes from many different places: architecture, works of art, movies, fashion show, fashion magazines, and street styles. It simply happens!

What are your top 3 closet essentials?

Chanel type tweed jacket, denim shorts, and many heels.

Describe your style.

It's classic and romantic, but I always put a modern touch to it.

What is one accessory we all must have?

A statement necklace. It can make any simple outfit look amazing!


Describe your blog.

It's a space I created to share my love for fashion with others. My main goal is to inspire everyone that reads it.

Who is your favorite designer and why?

At the moment, Karl Lagerfeld, I love how he is successfully leading Chanel with his innovations but never forgetting the classic Chanel.

What is your "I'm running late" uniform?

Denim shorts, white shirt, tweed jacket, and flat sandals.

Name someone - dead or alive - you would love to have dinner with, if you were able to.

Jesus!! I can only imagine how impacting it would be hearing his words of wisdom in person. I certainly wouldn't be the same after that dinner.

Where do you see yourself ten years from now?

Happily married, working in the fashion industry, and living in NY, Paris, or London!
