interview

sasha marini model

by Sara Spinetto


Can you share with us your story? How did you get started in modeling? How you got here and how/when you became interested in fashion. I first approached Modeling to earn some money and help my family with the expenses for my studies. (At that time I was studying Law at Bologna University). It did not take me long to realize that working in fashion was my true calling so I started traveling around the world to get an international background that would allow me to be competitive within the industry. Did you ever dream of becoming a model? Traveling the world? Living under the spotlight? To be honest, I never dreamed of becoming a model nor anyone in my family has ever had any kind of professional experience in the fashion business. I love my job because it allows me to travel the world, to gain valuable experiences both on a personal and professional level and, importantly, to always express myself and my view on men’s clothing and fashion.


Describe your life in the past few weeks? What’s a typical day in the life of Sasha Marini? Over the last few weeks, I have been in Paris for the Campaign FREE MAN T. PORTER and I had the opportunity to work with great photographers in amazing locations. I have also taken part the sixth edition of the ASVOFF International Fashion Film Festival with the film “NOTHING MORE THAN WHISPERS” (http://vimeo.com/65127316), among great industry names such as Bruce Weber, Ellen Von Unwerth, Karl Lagerfeld, Bettina Rheims etc. My everyday life reflects how the fashion system works and is therefore always quite hectic and, often, unpredictable. When not modeling, I am casting and in constant contact with the managers that help me organizing my agenda and national/international schedule. What’s your opinion on the current fashion industry? What are the best and worst aspects? Fashion is like a Circus: it can be very fun and exciting but, depending on the “characters” you get in contact with, sometimes (quite often actually) it can turn in a very unpleasant experience. The best bits include travelling the world, working in a creative and artistic environment, interacting with top professionals, and earning quite good money. The negative aspects are the widespread hypocrisy, the “fashion victim” attitude that I honestly hate, the loneliness sometimes, some sexual dynamics too often recurring behind a successful career, the economic instability, the lack of consideration for the human aspect that, as always, makes the real difference - even in modeling. What’s your most memorable modelling job? What has been your favourite job to date? No doubt. Bally Campaign, my cover & editorial for IKI Magazine # 7 (The Apocalypse Issue) and the Exclusive Show for Tom Rebl SS 14 # Milan Fashion Week.


You are a professional with a long career in the man fashion industry: which magazines have you been modeling for? How was to be a male model when you started and what’s the difference to be a male model today? I worked for prestigious magazines such as Italian Vogue, Vogue Pelle, GQ, Posh, Pen, Fantastics Magazine, Qvest, The Fashionisto, Kaltblut, Idoll and I have been the testimonial for numerous print campaigns including Bally, Tom Rebl, Modora Luxury Watches, Hotel Style, Carrera, Preach, Herren Globus, Dual Ism Project, Hannes Roether, Paul Miranda, Daniele Fiesoli and many others. Compared to when I started off this career, I see substantial differences: first, much more money to invest in communication and, consequently, a higher concept of fashion & modeling business management. As a consequence, a greater focus on models’ personality. At the moment, I still see models with the features that reflect the fashion trend of the season but they do not seem to have that special “something” that makes them unique in the industry. The fashion industry which is all glittering and glamorous in the media has a dark side we are all now getting to know about. You are one of authors of the famous worldwide social Campaign “Shout up, you can”: tell us about it, its goals (and how they can be effectively enforced) and your commitment to fight against sexual abuse in the fashion industry. Not surprisingly, I am the testimonial and one of the authors of the social campaign “SHOUT UP YOU CAN” (www.shoutupyoucan.com) against sexual abuse in the fashion system. Its main purpose is to protect and to remind all models (particularly, the “fresh faces”) of not being deceived by those who just use their work as photographers to satisfy their perverse sexual desires. In the video campaign “100% MODEL “


(http://vimeo.com/36408798) I invite all my colleagues to build their career on strong values ​​such as determination, integrity, dignity, professionalism and respect for their own body and soul. The success does not come through sex and the so-called “slave attitude”. It is important to break the silence and report all forms of abuse without fear of professional repercussions. “If your son/daughter suffers sexual abuse, would you ever be able to remain silent?” And how do you balance your personal life and modelling career? For me, modeling is a passion and job that has nothing to do with my value as a person and as a man. What’s your most stand-out characteristic? I think it’s the passion I put in everything I do and my versatility. I am not interested

in the beauty trend of the season; my beard and my overall style are expression of my personality, a bit rough in the form but with the soul of a gentleman and a great inner energy Are you able to tell us of any projects that you’re working on/have planned? At the moment, I am very focused working on some editorial projects and video aiming at portraying a new concept of a forward-looking, innovative and modern man, not subject to the fashion victim attitude and style. Since you’re in a competitive industry, how do you cope with rejection? Rejections (more or less justified) happen in any kind of job and this is especially true for the modeling career. Personally, I learned to pay attention only to the considerations of professionals whose opinions I reckon important for my further professional growth.


What people inspire you, past and present and why? What inspires you apart from modeling? Within the fashion world, the only person that really inspires me is Tony Ward. I think he has a very strong personality and a unique editorial attitude. Beyond modeling, I am interested in filming and I think I am quite natural at it. I have recently shot a movie called SINNSIDE in Spain where I had to play a very intriguing and sensual character. It has definitely been a very interesting experience!

having an economic stability, being a good husband and father.

What’s your motto in life? Nothing happens by chance.

www.sashamarini.com

What is your idea of happiness? Achieving an inner balance, being surrounded by the warmth of the people I love, pursuing my professional goals,

Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now? At the moment, I am not able to say because life can be really unpredictable. I would be very happy to live in NY. Any advice for the newcomer or someone who wants to get into this business? Be smart, always kind, respect your body and soul and don’t let anybody to mislead or deceive you just to be successful in the industry.
