176 cm


Place of Origin:
I’m from Győr, a small city in the north-west of Hungary.

Ethnic Origin:
I’m Hungarian with ancestors from Transilvania.


How discovered:
My mother agent Rea Farkas found me on instagram and sent me a message. At first I found it really funny because I didn’t exactly know what she wanted from me, but after our first meeting she convinced me that I have something special to become a model. To be honest I never thought of becoming a model before that talk with Rea!

Favorite things:
I’m obsessed with hipster foods. I can spend hours on my laptop searching for new recipes, new alternatives for how to cook healthy and clean but varied and tasty. And of course I try them out. But sometimes I also do fancy, very sweet and totally unhealthy cookies, LOL. I can’t live without sport, I like running long distances and yoga.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Milky Chance: Running. I can’t stop listening to it.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I love Keira Knightley movies. One of my favorite is the new Anna Karenina, directed by the amazing Joe Wright.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I believe in natural products, also like DIY things, because this is a good way to know exactly what are you using. One of my favorite product is this hand cream that you can find only in a pharmacy cos it’s „home made” in their laboratory. I started using it for my hands first… but now I use it everyday for every part of my body, it’s just perfect!

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I was not a model, I would be at the medical university in Hungary. After modeling I wanna start it and become a pharmacist.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I always sing while I dry my hair. And I don’t care if I’m at home, at the gym or in a model apartment wiht other people around… I do it, I don’t care if someone is listening. It makes me happy!

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I just started modelling, but everything so far seems to be an exciting experience. If I have to choose the best moment so far… definitely when I worked for Nanushka (a big store in Hungary) as exclusive model. It was an honor to work with them. I’m doing a lot of shootings here in Milan, and it’s always a different experience with each clients. I can say that Im enjoying this time of my life right now!

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
There are too many things to mention. I really like the downtown of Győr, it’s full of lovely little streets and buildings in Baroque style. It’s nice to have a coffee somewhere in the center, and really close to my house there’s the Territorial Abby of Pannonhalma which is part of the UNESCO Word Heritage List, it amazes me every time I look at it. I really miss this view and in general all the nature and the quiet of my area.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I’d love to work with Prada or Gucci here in Milan. Or Dries Van Noten in Paris… I’d love to walk soon for the biggest brands of Fashion Weeks.

Place you would love to visit:
Once in my life I wanna go to Georgia. I hope that it won’t become too touristy before my arrival! I like wild and traditional places.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Everything made by cord, I’m kind of obsessed with this fabric.
