A Powerful Gesture

"I wanna be a model", that is almost each and every teenagers line. Being a successful high fashion runway model requires much more than just drop-dead gorgeous looks. You need to have all that and more : Passion. Some people are able to overcome half of the things they go through to be exactly that "a human mannequin".

1. Who is Diego?
I'm a professional catwalk and fashion model currently working and living in the UK, London. I was born in the Dominican Republic, Monte Plata, 22 December 1988.

2. What does he do for a living?
I am currently working as a catwalk and fashion model in partnership with 7SevenManagement, which is a Talent agency working along with other successful modeling agencies.
3. What got you into modeling?
I had always been fascinated by the fashion industry; I knew it was something I could do.

4.What/who inspired you to start modeling?
In my late teens a close friend of mine suggested that I should try modeling and I did.

5. Who is your style icon?
My style Icon will have to be Mat Gordon - one of the most successful male models in the world. He always delivers and his sense of style and success still inspires me in my everyday work.

6. Where do u see yourself in the next 2 years?
One of my many goals is to become a successful international model and eventually venture out into acting since that's my first love. That's where I would love to see myself in the next 2 years.

7. What have u achieved in the modeling industry?
I have done work from editorial, commercial, magazine, TV, and all types of fashion events along with some top designers. I aim to continue working hard and reaching new levels whilst having a successful career
8. Any words of advice for young ones who want to pursue modeling...
My word of advice would be - in everything you do aim to be the best. It may feel like a competitive world but that shouldn't be the reason why you should ever stop chasing your dreams. It's the fight that makes it worthwhile. I also encourage you to surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher. Negative surrounding will always keep you from achieving and becoming what you where meant to be. Last but not least, trust in God, he's your strength and the only person that will always have your back.

An Eye For Hidden Shadows

You get to acquaint with a lot of people as the years go by but, there are those that have that spark that wield your gorgeous cocoa sight. If there is one thing I have learned in this industry is that people have a way of popping out when you least expect it, those that capture magnificence and hail the presence of Fashion.
It always sticks deep in my heart when I see this. Derek Sturdivant is one of those people. :')

Know Me 

When you asked me to do another feature it was exciting and then when it became self driven it was a bit frightening.

Only because I never know what words are most valuable or which people would care to listen to. I find that that's the most difficult thing to find the words to make a strong point when there are so many. And in the bigger picture being yourself and making your mark in the world of so many.

I am an artist. And when I say this it is both positive and negative. Positive because I take part in every aspect of the arts because they all work together so melodically together. The negative is that the term "artist" can be suggestive because some think that art has a clear definition and I disagree. We are artist in our own degree not up to standards.

A part of being an artist is evolving, as you mature you tend to research and make sense of what you are going to be displaying allowing others to think about what they do in their own lives. Lately I've been a bit quiet because I want to work on making the art a living physical thing that can accompany me. That makes it real! That keeps it fresh. It's all about finding a feeling and having a love for what I'm creating, that's what drives me.

We can all create. We can all love. The first step is the hardest and that's allowing yourself to start.
