    Here is our interview!

    Full Name: TG Tatiana Gaião
    Born and Reside: Brazil
    Occupation: Plus Size Model
    What would you describe your roll in the fashion industry?
    In 2010, I was elected Miss Plus Size in Brazil, the first one in my country. From there, I started doing modeling jobs and became very well known in the Plus Size Fashion World. Many women have me as a kind of reference for fashion, plus size beauty and high self-esteem, and that makes me very happy.



    When did you first start to take an interest in fashion?
     I have always loved fashion but it was so distant to me because I thought that an overweight woman would not have space in the fashion industry. After I knew about the plus size movement, my interests increased because I knew this was something I could relate to.

    Who are some of your favorite fashion designers?
     I don’t have any favorite fashion designer. I  like designers who makes clothing for all kinds of women and  do not discriminate against women who were 12+.


    Where do you find inspiration?
    I get inspiration from American models and stores because in my country, Plus Size fashion is still looking for a place to stand.



    When shopping, what are some key things you assess before you make a purchase?
    Comfort first. I think a woman looks dowdy in a outfit that clearly is not comfortable. The cut of clothing is very important and makes all the difference a good cutting, directed to your body type. When I find comfort, beauty and elegance start to reveal itself. Then, the price becomes less important.



    How do you see the plus size industry booming in the fashion industry today?
    It makes me very happy and pleased to see that the market has opened the eyes of the public. I am also happy to see that the fashion industry is starting to recognize that every wants and deserves to dress and feel good. Plus size women are people, just like everyone else. We have money to spend, we have good taste and also do not want to spend on clothes that do not please us. I can definitively  see the plus size industry making amazing strides.

    Where are some of favorite places to shop?
    Personally, I love to travel to the United States and shop! Plus size fashion in Brazil, although growing more and more, is still limited and expensive. Outside Brazil, I have more options and a much better price. 

    MODELING CAREER

    How long have you been modeling for?
    I’ve been doing modeling jobs for about 2 years. I started in 2010 when I was elected Miss Plus Size Brazil.

    Where are some places you have modeled for?
    I have already done modeling jobs for many stores in my country. I am currently the model of two stores in Rio de Janeiro. I have done some work in São Paulo, Curitiba and I recently had the opportunity to photograph in the United States, where my picture was published in Plus Model magazine. I was the first cover girl of Very Full Figured Magazine. I also did some  magazines, newspapers and tv programs in Brazil.

    Do you have any projects that you are anticipating ?
    I want to shoot outside of Brazil again as soon as possible. Have an international career is the dream of any model.

    Do you have any tips for women who may want to model?
    You must love yourself regardless of what the other mannequins look like. Always take care of skin, hair and nails. Always be beautiful. It is not easy to enter the market, but you should run to your dream. Make some pictures with a good photographers, network well, and find a good agency.



    Lastly, 
    Do you have any last words you want to leave for curvy girls everywhere?
    No matter your weight or your size. You’re beautiful because you are unique in the world! Love your body as it is. Worry about health and be happy!
