Diego Furoni: “The best catwalk ever was in 2009. I did Giorgio Armani show and I also met him in the backstage”
20 May, 2012
Hello World of models family, Im Diego Furoni, I was born in a small city located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul named Alcinopolis in Brazil , but when I turned 7 I moved to Campo Grande where I´ve been living since then, but I´m in New York now.
I love to be with my family and buddies, I like sports, especially soccer and volleyball
Im looking for my dreams and I´m having a real good time working as a model.
How did all start: thanks to his mother!
I started modeling when I was 16 years old in Campo Grande. I was at home with my parents then my mother came to me and asked me “why dont you go some modeling agencies because I think you look good for modeling”. I told her Id check it and I started looking for some agencies in Campo Grande.
I met Anderson Alvves, my actual agent and he explained me about the modeling world and how to become a good model. Later on, there came my first international trip to Thailand and I fell in love with my job! The best thing about modleing is to be able to travel around the world, meeting and learning such unique cultures!
The first shooting, working with photographers and posing naked
In my first shooting I was a litle bit nervous, some pictures didnt work well, but Anderson was there and he helped me how to relax, so after that, some pics turned out really great.
I like when the photografer makes me fel relaxed and comfortable. Before the shooting I like to see magazines and I strike some poses that I wiil be able to use for the job,
I have already posed naked and I felt really comfortable with that. Its a job and for me its important to have diferent kinds of poses or styles.
I have done a lot of catwalks specially in Asia, but I also have done in Milan. The best catwalk ever was in 2009. I did Giorgio Armani show. I met a lot of brazilian models at the show and also Armani in the backstage. In 2000 I walked for Emporio Armani , CK, G2000, Armani exchange , Gucci and Marc Jacobs!
Male models x Female models
Male models are getting more and more exposure and opportunities into the fashion world.but women still rule this business, they still got the biggest and also more jobs,
Any fav model?
when I started modeling i always wanted to be like my friend Tony Dias he is also from my mother agency and he has done a several fashion campaigns, He is a great model
Not so much, but I like to wear nice clothes for the castings and jobs.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd
Well, Id give to all my fans the attention they deserve! That would make me real happy cause that meana I am doing a good job!
Atracting someone´s attention
Having fun, playing jokes
Chilling out with my buddies, drinking some beers,I enjoy going to snack bars and hear country music
The craziest (nastiest?) thing he´s ever done in a summer time season
A job in Indonesia. I was a member of a show tv and I had to eat a “weird” food!!
Fav body part and why
The eyes, because they express our inner soul
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those cool sexy ones lol
