-Hello Antonio, welcome to CoverMen Mag, just to start it off, please give me some background informationAntonio Navas, top model

Hi! It’s a pleasure for me to have this interview with you. Well, I was born in Barcelona 22 years ago and I have been living here all my life. Since I started with this business I travel quite a lot and I spend some time in New York as well. As I am trying to finish the university this year I need to spend some time in Barcelona, just to keep my teachers happy.   


-How and when did you start your career as a model?

I started modelling about 3 years ago. I was spotted in Barcelona by a casting director and a photographer from New York in Las Ramblas. They told me the whole story about modelling and going to New York, travelling, agencies, etc, but for a guy like me, who barely had crossed the Spanish frontiers once, sounded like a joke. They took some pictures of me and we kept in touch so I could go to NY in winter. I explained my family and found that there was a very good agency right in Barcelona. It was the now called 'Sight Management', with Eduardo Sayas directing it. We could say that he changed my life. It was one of the best decisions ever…


-Do you remember your first photo shoot?

If I am not wrong, it was for a Spanish catalogue. I was quite young and everything was new for me but it has been all about getting used to it and giving your best.


 -Which fashion designer was your first fashion show for?

It was in winter for Dolce & Gabbana. I like my scared face there jaja.

 -Let's talk about your colleagues: who is your favorite female model?

If we need to talk about colleagues, I would speak about male models, cause female and men fashion are quite separated. At the shows we all almost know each other, but I tend to be with my Spanish friends like Joan Pedrola, Miguel Iglesias, Javier, etc, whenever we can.

-I'm sure you travel a lot, what has been the most interesting place you have visited so far?

Cuba was one of the most special ones. I could stay a bit longer with some locals and it gave me a different perspective of a lot of things. Also Perú was very nice. I love not common places


 -Tell me about your professional plans: apart from modeling, what else would you like to pursue?                                                                                            Antonio Navas, top model

I am studying Kinesiology (sports science), which I expect to finish 95% in September. I wanna keep studying this by myself to get more in deep with my knowledge but also I'd like to do something about my passion, which is surfing. Also I think about doing something for people that have had less opportunities in their lives. But I am young and I need to live a bit more to learn more and see further.


 -What is your favorite sport and how often do you play it?

I've already said it. It is surfing and I practice it as much as I can, which is not that often unfortunately. I go surfing whenever I can: from working trips anywhere to Barcelona or New York…


-Thanks Antonio for taking your time for this interview!

You are welcome, my friend A.!
