Thursday, November 1, 2012 Model In The Morning: Meet Lera!

Between working on a double major in Economics and Psychology at USC and a Fashion and Merchandising degree at SMC, we’re pretty sure our newest vintage model Lera is superhuman. When she’s not studying or modeling, she can usually be found sketching fashion illustrations while consuming crazy amounts of coffee and chocolate. Somehow she found a second to chat with us about her dreams and what’s hiding in the bottom of her bag.

Astrological sign:

Virgo

I’m originally from…

Nikolaev, Ukraine

If you looked in my closet, you’d find…

Many impractical pieces for which I’ve yet to find an occasion.

I’m always on the hunt for…

Delicious fruit!

My most treasured possession…

My mom’s vintage sunglasses. They’ve become such an integral part of my style that people have started to recognize me by them!

When I was a kid, I wanted to be…

A fashion designer, although I didn’t quite label it as such at the time.

In five years, I hope to be…

Traveling the world while working in the fashion industry.

My favorite scent in the world…

The smell of memories!

The most random thing my bag right now…

A 1977 copy of Tolstoy’s War and Peace in Russian. Every now and then, I’ll slip it into my bag, hoping to wade through another chapter in waiting.
