Livia Pillmann interview

Discovered in the underground of Budapest and now living the model life in the Big Apple. Livia Pillmann tells you all about it!

Nationality: Hungarian

Profession: Model, Enjoying Life <3

Agencies: Motheragency: Iconic Berlin

Milestones: Moving to NYC

Current location: New York

How did you become a model?
I was scouted in the underground of Budapest when I was 16.  I remember that time I was wearing glasses and braces, top of that I was a tomboy so I never really felt like becoming a model. But I thought – why not give it a shot it can be something fun.

In your own eyes, what was the moment that your career really took off? 
My career is also a mirror of my human growth I feel. I meet so many amazing creatives on my path and have the opportunity to learn from every each of them. My career really took off when I stopped becoming a person that fashion industry may like and become myself.

What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
I have had several very interesting shoots. The most interesting must have been in a sand mine in Germany. It was an editorial story with huge dresses, crazy hair, and makeup. We had a very difficult day as I kept sinking in the sand in those high heels.. well my advice does not go to a sand mile in high heels.. ( laughing )

Who’s your favorite photographer you’ve done a shoot with and why? 
I shot with Carla Guler recently. The images came out outrageously amazing and it was a great, fun team. We shot the whole editorial story in about 2 hours. ( which normally takes a whole day )
