‘Filling The Gap’ | Viktoria Foti by Nick Suarez | 2016

It was my first time in the States ever, and I can tell you, it was beyond amazing! New York is so much different than Europe. Being there is very inspiring and motivating. I got to know many interesting and talented people.

And then, you went to Milan. Which market do you prefer?
I prefer New York. I feel like the market and the mentality in general is more my cup thing overseas. So now I’m going back, the Big Apple is waiting!

Still being a new face, it must be a lot of castings going on for you. How do you handle your hectic schedule?
Yes, that’s the right term – hectic. But that’s why we have to have a good relationship with our bookers and agents, because they are the ones who help us get through the toughest moments and schedules. Communication is very important.

Do you have some fun experience from work/ casting?
It would be hard to chose one, because so far I’ve been lucky enough to work with awesome teams, so I always manage to get along with everyone on set. We have so much fun that most of the times it doesn’t feel like working at all.

So far, what do you prefer – Photo shoots or runway?
Photo-shoots, hands down! I love being connected to people, and that’s exactly what happens on photo shoots. You spend the entire day together with the team and clients, influencing each other, and at the end, you create something amazing, in which you really had your part.

How do you keep yourself model ready? (nutrition, exercises, beauty regimen…etc.)
Obviously, I always have to watch what I’m eating – basically that means low carb diet. But when I really need to be in perfect shape, as in fashion week season, asparagus diet is the most effective thing I’ve ever tried.

What is your greatest aspiration in modeling career?
To be a Victoria’s Secret Angel one day. For me, it’s magical.
