Model of the Week: Yvonne Si


Wilhelmina New York



Place of Origin:
Dalian, China

Ethnic Origin:

Taurus (western zodiac)

How discovered:
I was discovered by a local model agency.

Favorite things:
My friends and family…

Favorite music, band:
Linkin Park

I love watching independent movies from different countries…

Favorite piece of clothing:
Anything I have from Rei Kawakubo

What’s your idea of fun?
Outside of shopping, I would say learning about about the local area I am traveling too before I get there and finding all the cool things about that place… searching out hidden fun things and getting lost doing it… Sometimes getting lost in a foreign place can be fun.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
When I was on the plane to NY, I was so excited to realize that I was one step closer to being an international model. I am honored to join to group of Chinese models who have made it to Paris and NY.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Definitely the food!

Favorite artist (any kind):
Tim Burton. I love his creepy drawings.

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to visit a crazy Lady Gaga concert… not to see her, but to see all of her fans and how they are dressed. The audience would be more interesting to me… I love to visit anywhere where people dress out of the ordinary and have their own passion for presentation.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
LOL – I know it is a very weird obsession, but I actually love watching international currency exchange rates and how they all intersect with one another. It is fascinating to see the rise and fall and rise again the dollar and the fluctuations with the Euro. I know it is not fashion to say such things but it does show how we are all connected.
