Passion In Modelling By A Study Break
FIV: Jason, we see you in many campaigs. When did you start modeling? Was there a specific reason?

From South America To European Market
FIV: In your Instagram biography says that you are South American but now based in Milan. Did you move from South America to Milan to improve your modeling career?
JASON: Well, I started in London, but recently that I’ve been working a lot in Milan seems to be more my market. So I want to give myself the chance to try it more and see what happens.
FIV: What is the biggest difference between modelling in South America and modelling in London or Milan?
JASON: Where I come from there is not fashion scene. The fashion we inspire in my country are the cultures and traditions.
Great Designers With Their Own Indentities
FIV: Among all the great designers on the market, which one would you like to model for?
JASON: I’d like to walk for all of them! They all have their own identities and universe, thats why you can’t compare their work and vision, it’s almost comparing Tesla to a Mercedes. Both where design to work in certain and different ways.
Keep Loving What You Do: Jason’s Philosophy
FIV: It’s difficult to always be at the top. What advice would you give to models on how to keep working?
JASON: I would personally say the best to keep it up in this industry is keep loving what you doing. We all work to get a stable financial situation, but working without showing passion and interests will lead to nothing. So always appreciate and work with passion and interest.
FIV: What advice can you give to new faces?
JASON: The world is a rubbish world, you got nothing to lose by trying, rather you failed or not. Go for it and do it with passion. Be you.
