Fashion, Ballet & Social Media
We talk to Trixi about her passions fashion, ballet and social media. She is a content creator on Instagram and TikTok, so we asked her which platform she personally enjoys more. Through her job, she works a lot with her boyfriend. Often, that can lead to problems in relationships. For this reason, we asked her for tips on how a relationship can work despite all this. Of course, we also talked to her about her participation in Germany’s next Topmodel. She shares with us her experiences and how her life has changed after GNTM. Where she has already lived everywhere, how it was for her to move alone at a young age in a foreign city and much more can be found here in this interview!
“Fashion is Self-Expression”
FIV: Hello dear Trixi, thank you very much for taking the time for this interview. Let’s get right into it! Fashion is a big topic on your social media channels. Is there currently a fashion trend that you just can’t understand?
Trixi: Good question! Fashion has always been an important topic for me, whether consciously or unconsciously. As a child, for example, my mother always allowed me to choose my own outfits. Of course, there were also many days when things didn’t match at all. However, this allowed me to develop my own fashion sense early on. I think it’s important to wear what you feel comfortable with and what you like. You shouldn’t be forced to stick to current trends just to fit in. Fashion is self-expression, so wear whatever you want.
Social media: Instagram or TikTok?
FIV: You do content on both Instagram and TikTok. Of the two, which platform do you personally enjoy more and why?
Trixi: That’s actually something I often ask myself. I don’t think there’s a clear answer for me, because each platform stands for itself and has its very own cosmos. Instagram is the platform that accompanied me directly at the beginning. I know the app and love creating aesthetic content. The exchange with my community is the most important thing for me and that still works best on Instagram. GenZ in particular no longer has an Instagram account today, but moves around on TikTok. It’s nice to see that there is so much diversity on TikTok and that there are always new, fresh trends. The platform is just a lot of fun. That’s why I decided early on to create content on TikTok as well. Even if it’s still incomprehensible to many, since the platform is so insanely versatile and fast-moving, I assume that it’s the future.
Job & Relationship: The most important thing is respect
FIV: In your job, it’s not always easy to separate professional and private life, and as soon as it gets mixed, this can quickly lead to problems in the relationship. On your social media channels you can often be seen working together with your boyfriend. Do you have any tips for our readers on how a relationship can still work?
Trixi: As some of you may know, I’ve been with my boyfriend Samy Neo for a year now. A big help is of course that as a self-employed photographer he understands my work and always supports me. It’s great to know someone on your side with whom you can really share everything. Since we also work together often, the transitions from personal to professional are rather fluid. Nevertheless, I have learned one thing from my previous relationships. The most important thing besides love and friendship is respect. We respect each other and our work very much. Even if we don’t agree, we always try to understand each other’s point of view. I think that’s something that’s also lost socially nowadays – treat others the way you would like to be treated.
Passion ballet discovered in Toulouse
FIV: Now we would like to talk about your passion for ballet. What inspired you to take up ballet back then?
Trixi: I was born in Toulouse and we moved to the States to Washington D.C. for a few years. During that time, my sister and I did gymnastics. When we moved back to Toulouse, I accompanied a friend to ballet and that’s when I discovered my great passion for dancing.
For ballet on their own in Paris
FIV: For ballet, you moved to Paris alone when you were young. Would you like to tell us about your experience of being on your own at a young age?
Trixi: After school, I moved from Toulouse to Paris when I was 17. I lived in a very small apartment on the outskirts of Paris. The move was hard, of course. Cooking for yourself, working, making friends in a new city – it can all be scary. But on the other hand, also something beautiful and enriching, as you get to know each other in a whole new way. Nevertheless, I am incredibly grateful at all times for my family, who are always there for me and always have an open ear when I’m not feeling well or have worries. My family always gives me an incredible amount of strength and support so that I can face new challenges.
Trixis secret tip for the city of love
FIV: By having lived in Paris, would you like to tell us Parisian hotspots where our readers must visit?
Trixi: My favorite activity was just walking around the city and discovering something. There are so many cafes and galleries open to young people. The city gives you so much, so my tip is to put on comfortable shoes and explore the city on foot.
Emigrate: Japan and South Korea?
FIV: Can you imagine emigrating “again” and why? Which country would be your destination?
Trixi: As I mentioned before, we always moved a lot with the family. Toulouse, D.C., Toulouse, then alone to Paris and Berlin. Of course, it’s not always easy to settle in new places. But for me it’s incredibly important to get to know new places and cultures and to exchange ideas with people from all different backgrounds. Especially today, when everything is global, it’s even hard for me to decide on just one place. Therefore, I can very well imagine to emigrate again for a few years. For example, I would love to go to Japan or South Korea. Back then, I missed the last big family vacation to Japan because of GNTM. But I have such a great desire to discover something completely different and new for myself again.
2nd participation in GNTM: Best of season?
FIV: Since you just mentioned “Germany’s next Topmodel,” you participated there in 2018. With the experience you gained there, would you participate again and why?
Trixi: For me, Germany’s next Topmodel was a very formative time with great experiences, which allowed me to take away an incredible amount and learn about myself. I owe a lot to the program. Should there ever be a Best of season, I would definitely participate. I am still in close contact with Toni from my relay or Sarah from 2020 and Luca from the last relay. All participants are connected by this experience. It would be an interesting experience and I would be very happy to share it with them again.
Life after participating in GNTM
FIV: Now we would of course be interested to know how your life has changed so far after GNTM?
Trixi: My life has changed a lot. I moved to Germany, people suddenly recognized me on the street, I had the opportunity to walk for shows, I modeled for magazines, and of course I started with social media, which is all just incredibly fun for me. But I’ve also evolved beyond that. For me, connecting with my followers means an incredible amount. When I’m approached on the street, I still often hear that they’ve known me since GNTM, but then the biggest compliment is hearing that they’ve found themselves in my content. When I can help someone through their day or a hard time or inspire or motivate them to be more true to themselves and their emotions, to try something new or reinvent themselves. That’s the most beautiful thing.
FIV: That’s really great! Thanks again for the nice interview and for your time and we wish you all the best on your way!
