Following on from the excitement of London Fashion Week - we caught up with Josipa Cvitkovic for a quick chat. Having just experienced her first LFW and modelling for the likes of Bora Aksu, Charlotte Olympia and Isa Arfen to name a few....its been a rather busy week for this beaut!
Hometown: Slavonski Brod
How were you discovered?
Its a long story, but it came looking for me really so I took the chance! I felt it was a good opportunity; travelling, meeting different people, different cultures, discovering myself, growing up and being more responsible and adaptive!
What were you doing before modelling?
I was studying graphic design and civil engineering but I couldn't find myself in it – it just wasn’t me
What makes Josipa tick?
I LOVE music, books, all types of art, nature, animals, tattoos (I also really want to be a tattoo artist!), oh and sleeping and beer :)
So LFW just happened - all kinds of amazing! It seems someone was a very busy lady indeed!!
It was great – I cannot complain :) It was my first time here for London Fashion week and it was really really good for me. I always know that I can do better though, so next time, I will
What got you through the week?
Music, Coffee, and having a well earned beer after a looong day!
Really hard to choose, but honestly, I liked the energy of Isa Arfen and stylist Valentine Fillol-Cordier - getting a chance to work with them, they were so nice and kind. Hopefully I'll see them again soon! :)
We all know how important it is for a model to be prepared, but can you fill us in on those all essential items you carried in your kit?
I don’t really use any beauty products as such, but I always carry lip balm with me, and Nivea cream, because my skin can get really dry!
What beauty tips do you swear by?
Don't put make up on at all – we are all more beautiful without it <3
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
Shooting a fashion film in Milan; acting is one of the most fascinating things for me, and one of my biggest dreams
I don't have anyone specific really, although my friend Luciano Parisi is one of the most interesting, young, cool designers - with amazing style, and he has his own brand ‘The Sign’.
What couldn't you live without?
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
I don’t really have one in particular, I find my biggest inspiration all around me
What are you obsessed with right now?
My phone charger (so bad I know) but right now I can't allow myself to run out of battery #ModernLife
What’s currently on your playlist?
Guns n roses
What makes you smile?
Lots of things – but mostly positive energy!
What’s next for you? Anything exciting in the pipeline for 2016?
Well I am currently enjoying Milan and then heading back to London, but I would really love to go to Tokyo and New York soon - that would be so nice!
Can you sum yourself up in three words?
Can it be 2? - Big Kid :)
What’s your secret to a happy life?
To enjoy it as much as I can, and remain positive!
