One of my everyday Snapchat stories @Noravai 

 

Few days ago I did DKNY show here in New York. I also worked with the team before, saw the process of the collection being put together, trying all the variations of clothes, seeing how they move, how they look on pictures, how they feel etc. We spent long days, stayed until 2am together. At the end it felt like the team became a little family. I can definitely see now why designers call collections their baby. Makes me love the brand even more, when I know that people behind it are so lovely and down to earth. Also, the fact that they casted real New Yorkers for the show and not only models, adds so much character and personality to it. Thank you, DKNY for having me and making me feel like a real New Yorker for a bit.

Behind the scenes with car owner Jason

I was walking in East Village when I saw this car. I’m not a car person at all, but with this one, I had to take a selfie. While I take a selfie, this guy comes out of a bar and offers me to borrow the car anytime for grocery shopping. I don’t drive unfortunately. But I’m a bit of a poser, so I ask the guy to borrow it for a shoot one day. Jason, who’s the owner of both the car and the bar is super nice and lets me do that. Next time I come with my white outfits and drag Zhi Wei along. That’s how this sexy story was born.
