Advocate model ™London, United Kingdom
About me
Swirl is an advocate model signed @Brother Models. She advocates for mental health, BFRBs in particular, and she has spent her career pushing traditional industries into a more diverse and inclusive approach. Mainly smiling, sometimes biting. She has been featured by a number of online magazines and prints (such as Hunger Magazine), while her story made the Daily Mail and Huff Post. She often joins talks, interviews, and podcasts to spread positive awareness and engage in deep-layered conversations touching topics such as overcoming depression, learning to feel confident in our human body, and nudity. She is the owner of the trademark name "advocate model" that represents those models challenging old stereotypes of the fashion industry with their body, their words, and their actions. She does that by being bald, and bold about it. Artisan and former milliner (hat maker) born and trained in Florence, IT, she has also worked as an event manager, tour manager, and art director in the fashion and music industries. Swirl likes cooking vegetables with anything she eats. She treats food as a religion. Other registered appetites may be nature, music, board games, theatre, traveling, singing and dancing. Favorite movies: Cabaret, Amélie Poulain, The legend of the pianist on the ocean. Favorite song: "I am what I am" - Gloria Gaynor Favorite quote: "If you were waiting for a sign, this is it."
