Continue reading and discover the doubts and the certainties of this special model who entered Fresh Faces Indonesia 2013!

ModelManagement: Tell us when and how did you decide to become a model?

Vin: I never planned to be a model before. Accidentally,  I was been scouted by some photographers (they were working for some magazine) on facebook about 2 years ago. I posted some photos and then 2 photographers (Hendra Kusuma and Sofian Hadi) asked me to be their model at the same time! I said to them “yeah, why not!”. I had some spare time to do these shoots as well. But it was more for having fun. I actually never thought about it seriously and that’s when it all started:)

MM: Have you always wanted to be androgynous?

Vin: I never knew the meaning of “androgynous” until I found an article about Andrej Pejic on an fashion website. But the funny thing is that I decided to let my hair grow long before I red the article. Just for the fun! I tried to make new hairsyles because I always had short hair. So I never thought to be androgynous, but after reading the aricle I did:)

MM: As an androgynous model what are the advantages and disadvantages when it comes to booking jobs?

Vin: The advantages are that I  fit for unisex products and I can trick some people of course:p The disadvateages are that it´s hard to convince few photographers and designer for the fact that I can be masculine enough to wear men products 🙁

MM: Androgyny is a big thing in the modeling industry today, with models like Andrej Pejic and Lea T rocking the runways. Have their experiences inspired you?

V: Of course Andrej Pejic is my inspiration, expecially when I had to do androgynous projects. I learn so many things from him, especially how to pose in front of camera. I try to learn his “androgynous feel” in front of the camera, but always try not to copycat him 🙂

MM: You are a contestant of Fresh Faces Indonesia 2013, what are your views on the contest so far?

Vin: I think this contest is a great start for a professional modelling career. It gives aspiring models the opportunity to get exposure and start their own modeling career. I really hope in the future this contest will create many new supermodels worldwide:)

MM: How do you see the future for androgynous models in the fashion industry?

Vin: I think androgynous models will have good future, because not so many models have this feature. We have uniqueness that other models don’t have. And I hope androgynous models will not be only for 1 or 2 seasons but for always and all the time!

MM: Favorite fashion model of all time?

Vin: I have so many favourite models but if I have to shooce I will say Andrej pejic and David Gandhy as male models and Sasha Pivovarova and Devon Aoki as female models.

MM: If you had to choose any fashion brand in the world to work for, which one would it be?

Vin: its hard to tell, but it will be between Prada, CK, Jean Paul Gultier and Givenchy. all of them always have good products and campaigns.
