Czech model Gabriela Sieglová comes from Uničov, where she stopped to us for several days, so we were able to question her and find out, how is she doing and especially how she liked her stay in Miami, where she worked as a model.
- How was it in Miami?
Answer: With peace in mind I can say that it was my most beautiful time in my career but also in my personal life. I would call it period of positivism. I was lucky enough to meet very nice people, scouts in my agency, photographers, and also promoters, thanks to them I was able to get to places I never even dreamt of.
- What were you doing there?
Answer: I was lucky that the co-owner of the agency DAS MODEL MANAGEMENT chose me. Great credit on that has my home agency SCOUTEEN, which offered me. When I found out I am in the selected range I started to work on myself for several months, so I would get to the best shape. Considering the work I experienced many photoshoots, especially swimsuits and fashion show. I don´t want it to look like I am boasting, but this was one beautiful experience and I have already travelled a lot before. Miami is, as us young say , kind of a “different level”.
- What you did and did not like there?
Answer: In one word I liked everything, the city, people, their way of living the life – nobody is dealing with anything, completely different mentality (if you go shopping in your pyjamas, nobody cares or comments) Professionalism in agency, during the photoshoots, which was very pleasant, nobody stressed anyone. And one other thing I liked was than nobody is dealing with measures, model has to look like a woman. As mainly swimsuits and linergy is being shot here nobody has problem with breasts or hips. Of course, the body has to be firm and visually simply look top.
For some words of criticism to be said, the city is definitely not one of the safest places, assaults are there on daily basis.
- Why did you come back?
Answer: I was there as a model for DEVELOPMENT, that means model for developing, despite I already had experiences with modelling.
- What are you doing here?
Answer: That is question for book itself. From everlasting I have to keep an eye on my measures. As its being said I am girl “blood and milk”. After the Christmas I flew to Mexico, from were I was supposed to go directly to Milan. And in Mexico I took the tape measure (which I am always taking with me in my suitcase), put it to my hips and cancelled the flight to Milan (everyone there is still very strict about the measures) and rebooked the flight ticket to direction home. I had some work also in Czech then I went on a working trip to Switzerland. In March I was supposed to go for 3 months to Kuala Lumpur, but my hips are bad listeners. Once it is simply too much and I was fed up with it all. I told to myself – “Is it all worth it?”. I studied to be a nurse; there was no problem to find myself a job. Within one week I had both apartment and a job in Prague. I simply changed uncertainty to certainty. I work as a nurse by dentist and I like to time by time jump to modelling. I may come back to it one day.
- What are your plans for summer?
Answer: I am looking forward to holidays on Mallorca, where is living my brother and his girlfriend. We see each other just several times per year. We love each other in our family and enjoy spending time together. In work there are going to be MotoGP races, some other activities are in consideration but I won´t be bothering you.
