Toma

Who:

Toma (Tamara) Dgebaudze, 175 cm / 5’9″, Russian, born October 6th.

We Asked:

— What are three interesting facts about you?

1. I’m half Georgian and half Estonian;  2. I never expected that I could become a model one day. 3. I have many interests: starting from football to drawing, but my passion is singing and dancing.

— What is an issue or cause you are passionate about?

I love animals and can’t stand animal cruelty. At the moment I have got 7 cats and 3 dogs. My friends call it a “zoo” :) I love my pets!  At first, we’ve only had 1 cat! Then she had to have a “cat friend”, then we had another 4 just for a short while to look after, but then my dad did not want to let them go. All our cats and dogs were homeless, apart from 1 kitten, that we had to take away from one family that apparently got bored with it and did not want it anymore…

— How and when did you become a model?

I was signed with Figaro when I was 16. And then, I don’t know why, maybe because of my school commitments, exams and everything, I never got to do my modeling. I started traveling for modeling placements when I was 19 years old.

We Asked:

— What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?

When I’m a little bit nervous I listen to classical music like Ludwig van Beethoven, Mozart or Bach and more.

— Who is someone you admire and why?

I really admire Virgil Abloh and his brand OFF-WHITE. Or Tyler the Creator, I really like his music and his fashion. In the music part, I really like him because he is doing everything by himself.

— What are three interesting facts about you?

1. I’m a petrolhead. I really like cars and I admire them. 2. I played basketball but I had an injury so I had to stop playing it. 3. Any time I have to be somewhere on time I arrive 1 hour early just to be sure I don’t miss anything (plane, show, etc…)
