MEET THE MODEL: STEPHANIE AT NEVS


PHOTOGRAPHY EMMA HARRIES - FASHION AND WORDS JOSEPH PARKER - H/MUA IGA WASYLCZUK

London-based model, Stephanie Laleva at Nevs is a girl you want to know. Her friendly personality, environmentally conscious point of views, and exceptional looks are not easily missed. Laleva was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and began modelling in London, alongside working in her parents pub. Modelling for a Pringle of Scotland campaign and recognisable CSM graduate, Paolina Russo are just a couple of amazing accolades to point out. Joseph Parker had the pleasure of meeting her for a chat whilst styling some pretty fabulous looks.

Joseph Parker: Hey Stephanie, how are you today, and tell us what are you listening to right now ?

Stephanie Laleva: Hi there, I am great actually, I’ve created this challenge for myself: to go to bed early and wake up by 9:30am at the latest and it’s working so far- laughs. Right now I’m listening to KOKOROKO - Abusey Junction, a lovely song to start the day with.

J.P: Where are you from, where are you now, and where would you like to be in 10 years?

S.L: I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria to a Bulgarian dad and a French mum but I grew up between there France and London. For the past 6 years I’ve been here in London and in 10 years time who knows, hopefully somewhere where the summers are hot and the winters have snow.

J.P: What do you do besides modelling ?

S.L: I started my Masters at King’s College in Marketing a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been working in a pub for the past 4 years but I would love to finally change jobs (we all have to pay bills one way or another).

J.P: If you could do anything in the world right now what would you do ?

S.L: Honestly, this is a very hard question but I would love to remove all single use plastic that has ever existed, stop climate change, stop animal extinction and destruction of natural habitats. Stop people from dying from cancer and illnesses, remove Trump and make sure he never becomes president again, remove international conflict and pressure between countries and last but not least, be physically closer to my favourite people who are all spread around the world.

J.P: What is your favourite f Word?

S.L: Flower of course.
