What do you do and why do you do it?

I'm a Fashion Designer with a keen interest in Trend forecasting and Marketing. Since very young Fashion has been my passion and it is something that comes very easily to me. Now I work as a model and also in a Platform of culture and exclusive design shoes and clothes. I really enjoy the things that I'm doing because I'm aways connected with people so I can learn from them.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

My favority TV show ever is Power Ranges, very saily but remains me my childhood. Now a days my favorits are Sense8, Girls, Vynil and Orphan Black.

Name some spots in Sao Paulo that are good for a Tinder date.

For a tinder date in São Paulo I would hardly recomend a intimet bar called Buraco, amazing drinks and low lights. Also try Barouche, Drosophyla or Polska 295.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

For basic I use to go to fast fashion stories, but for glamour I go to vintage store.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Vila Mix. A night club of brazilian country music, not my taste for music.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

Pick nick at the Michocão street. Every sunday the avenue is closed to the public. There you can sit as in a park, skateboarding, ride a bike. I love to go there with my friends but sometimes a work on sundays so mostly I never get to do it.

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Sao Paulo and where did you get it?

Once I was super hungry and have to eat before star to drink so I asked for a sandwich in a durty street bar and it was sticky, mucky, browning, thick, horrible. But the bar has the cheap and cold beers.

I don't use to go to fancy places.

What restaurant in Sao Paulo looks crap, but the food’s amazing?

The Estadão is not excatly a restaurant, but is the weird best place to have somenthing to eat after party. At first sight looks ugly but its super well done and you can have brazilian style complete meals or also the famous coxa creme.

Where can you get the best cocktail in Sao Paulo? Which one do you like?

The Rivieira bar has the best bartenders in São Paulo, but there is also my favorit happy hour bar called Paramout that sells the drinks for half of the price.

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

No douts that coxinha is the best snack in Brazil. It is a tasty blend of chiken and subtly flavoured. the best combination to these crispy delight to drink with a Guarana soda.

The new trend in town is Noddles bars and there is a place called Tan Tan noodles bar which is the new cool place, but I think is overrated because the dishes are not well served and expenceves.

My favorite vacation city in the world is Lima Peru. The weather was humid and super hot but I had my best bithday party there with friends and drinking the best pisco sours of my life.
