RowASeat1: When did you fall in love with fashion?

Vinnessa Yasmine: I fell in love with fashion after my first visit to New York during my senior year of college!

RowASeat1: As an aspiring model, how has your perception of beauty evolved?

VY: I’ve learned that beauty can take many forms, and although you may not fit into a certain genre of beauty, you can certainly shape your own.

RowASeat1: How were you inspired to start a career as a model?

VY: I’ve received so much support from my family and friends; and I felt that it’s only right I see where their faith can lead me. Although I’m still in the fresh stages of modeling I’m learning things fast and enjoying the ride so far!

RowASeat1: What do you love about modeling?

Vinnessa Yasmine 4VY: I love working with different photographers, it seems as if every photographer has the ability to capture beauty in their own special way.

By working with different photographers it has taught me to enhance my modeling game with posing, direction, good attitude and timeliness.

RowASeat1: Besides modeling, what else are you involved in?

VY: I am a bartender in the River North area, and I am currently studying to take the LSAT. I also have a business idea I’m working on, but I’m not ready to share just yet.

RowASeat1: Describe your personal style.

VY: I would describe my personal style as Classic; I don’t wear things just because of the designer or because they’re in season. I like to buy items that can be mixed and matched and turned into new looks. I’ve learned that simplicity and versatility is key with my style evolution and as a model.

RowASeat1: Which designer’s show would you like to walk in? Why?

Vinnessa Yasmine 2VY: Oh wow! Where do I start? I’d have to say Kenneth Cole and Chanel – they’re both reflections of my personal style, and both are designers whom I love to have in my closet.

Also, black is one of my favorite colors to wear, which I know the two designers have been drawn to use black quite a lot in collections, fashion campaigns and signature pieces.

RowASeat1: Name your favorite Supermodels.

VY: OMG! There are so many choices and this is a good question, however I can’t answer this question just yet… I’m still compiling a classic list and learning who/what I like the most.

RowASeat1: During the holidays, what are some of your favorite things to do?

VY: I love drinks and board games with close family and friends. Also, eating intimate dinners are one of my favorite things to past times… it’s safe to say I’m a foodie! (Laughs)
