Be yourself. It is the only way in which you can become a successful model: Silvia Toscano


I would not really know how to describe my style because even if it is versatile there is always my personality in it which makes it personal. One of my sources of inspiration is definitely the Italian most known top model Bianca Balti, she is my role model.

RK : First of all, thanks a lot for accepting our invitation for an interview. Please say something about you. About your career as a fashion model. How did you get started?

Silvia : My career started five years ago, when I was only 13. Me and my mum were seeing photo of young models walking on the runways and we thought it would be an interesting adventure to have. It was just a hobby, when I first modeled for Fabio Porliod (an Italian, talented fashion stylist) and then it turned into a true exciting job.

RK : What was your first big break in the industry?

Silvia : My first break in the industry was in a beauty competition in North Italy. I was not expecting to win and neither to be contacted by many people from this world at the end of the night. It was not a big event, but it was definitely were everything started to be bigger and more important. I can still remember the feeling of the victory.


RK : What do you enjoy most in modeling?

Silvia : Definitely walking with confidence on the runway, it is my way to demonstrate that I am succeeding in what I do.

RK : What has been your favorite shoot / campaign / work to date?

Silvia : Last year I acted in “L’amore, il Sole e le altrestelle”, an important sitcom that was on one of the most known channels of the Italian TV. I was not into the “movie world” but with patience, devotion and a little bit of luck, I passed the castings and started acting with big actors and actresses such as Ricky Memphis and Valentina Incontrada. I was really grateful for this opportunity and I enjoyed every day on the set, learning and having fun while acting.
