European beauty is always in style.

LONDON: Belgravia

She’s fine, beautiful and burning those photographers eyes behind the camera with her sexy shimmer.  Who is the Polish beauty and how did she begin her career?

“I was born in Warsaw, Poland. When I was 13 a photographer discovered me when I was shopping with my friend. We were sooo scared that this guy was some dangerous person.  So I called my mum and she checked the agency he mentioned (Mango Models still exists and doing great in Poland). I went for a meeting with Monika, the owner of the agency with my parents and she gave us contract for five years.  After a couple of days we signed it.”

“I love to travel and see beautiful places while meeting amazing people.  It’s good to see how they live and all the differences which we have and learn to appreciate them.  Even if we might not understand them at first, learning about a different culture is always good.”

Patrycja Walczak 25What are your dislikes about modeling?

“I don’t like people who treat us like dolls in a snobby way.  They act sometimes like we don’t hear what they are saying, ‘she is to fat’ or ‘she has a big nose’.  We are human beings like everyone and those words can hurt anyone with the same force!  Especially when a girl is 13 and she doesn’t know that those comments at times are meant to be mean or spiteful and not true.  After a while you begin to realize that you can’t take everything people say to heart.”

“Sleep is really important as it keeps you going. I try to sleep at least 8 hours, but sometimes in the modeling business it’s impossible.  I lose sleep because of different call times.  I sometimes have to work at night, very late.  Or, I often start early in the morning after or before a late night.”

“Good models are always on time, in shape and ready to work.  It’s a professional job, you work hard.  Showing what is right to yourself and everyone can be important.  Bad models…  I think they are some persons who are selfish and think only about profits, negative in attitude and not in shape etc.”

Patrycja Walczak 31 Patrycja Walczak 30What was your first big job that made you feel like a model?

“I felt like a model from the beginning.  A first type of so called ‘big job’ I really can’t remember.  It might have been a simple look book or something for a magazine.  But now, when I’m standing in front of the camera nothing else exists.  I feel it everytime!”

Patrycja Walczak 16Which brands, fashion or commercial, have you worked with?

“Wow…  I’m a model now for 8 years.  I’ve really done a lot of campaigns.  Some are, Casio, Luis Buchinho, Puma, Intimissimi, Orsay, Charlotte Tilbury, Braun, L’Oreal, etc.”

Patrycja Walczak 3Anything quirky you want to share with us?
