About me
Swirl is an advocate model signed @Brother Models in Manchester and Atmosphere Faces in London. She advocates for mental health, BFRBs in particular, and she loves pushing industries towards a more diverse and inclusive approach. Featured by a number of magazines, she often joins talks to spread positive awareness and engage in deep-layered conversations, touching topics such as overcoming depression, learning to feel confident in our body, and being comfortable in our nudity. She is the owner of the trademark title "advocate model" that represents those models challenging old stereotypes of the media industry with their body, their words, and their actions. Swirl is bald, and bold about it. This derives from trichotillomania, which is a body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) that is still in the process of being destigmatized. She's working with a woman-led association to make resources available in Italian to help normalize these disorders. She decided to pursue her career in fashion as a model after being raised as an artisan milliner (hat maker) in Florence, IT. She is knowledgeable about what goes on behind fashion industries' doors, making her appreciate the value of artwork and design. Some things about her: Swirl treats food as a religion, as any Italian would do. She's also got an appetite for music, board games, theatre, traveling, animals, singing, and dancing. Movies which inspire her: Cabaret, Amélie Poulain, The legend of the pianist on the ocean. Hype-song: "I am what I am" - Gloria Gaynor Favorite quote: "If you were waiting for a sign, this is it."

    L'Officiel Baltic: If you go down to the beach todayMore recently, as all our worlds have become smaller, the opportunity to delve into our traditional British seaside roots has presented itself to us as a welcome alternative to the once all-to-easy holiday escapes, by plane and over-seas, to follow to sun. The great British seaside is a place that fills our every human fibre with nostalgic, enduring memories of childhood escape...Care free, nostalgic, happy and free. The images have a dream-like quality that make use of surrealism to blend b
