A little bit about Ana
Shot in New York
I started modelling at the tender age of 14 years old and by 16 I found myself being flown to Europe to live on my own and expand my modelling career which was quite challenging. Many people think the lives of International models are all about the glitz, glamour and dunking our noses in snowballs. I can tell you from first hand experience there is way more to this lifestyle than what meets the eye! My journey has been an interesting yet challenging one which I will share with you all through my monthly posts. I will be giving you all an INSIDE view into the chaotic lives on an international model with a passion for fashion and an intense schedule of traveling all over the world whilst still trying to lead a normal life.
Having lived alone from a young age I developed a sense of independence and strong will by learning valuable lessons from rare experiences along the way. This grew me in aspects many people can’t imagine.

Having being featured in numerous international magazines, catalogues and working with photographers including David La Chappele, Albert Watson, Antoine Verglais etc. Fashion has been part of my life since an early age, my Mom was a seamstress and had her own fashion label in Brazil. I was often around watching her come up with the designs and execute them which fascinated me. Still to this day we collaborate together a lot in creating pieces for my wardrobe. It is something I am very passionate about…design and art add colour to the soul.For the past 12 years I have been an investor in my family’s plastic recycling business. I am firm believer in protecting our beautiful mother Earth in order to preserve it for future generations as we all need to do our duty with regards to environmental issues.
