I really like Balmain, Versace, Elie Saab, Yousef Aljasmi & Albina Dyla. I like feminine clothing, with that extra touch of fierceness.
Tell us about yourself and what you do
My name is Penthesilea, I’m 33 years old and I live in Amsterdam. I’ve been modelling since I’m 16, but I don’t do that many modelling now, as when I was younger and it was a job next to my study. Now I have my own cosmetic brand and a company is customizing phones & tablets with real gold & diamonds.
Who has inspired you in your life?
My inspirations in life are a few people. First of all my mother, she was a single mother and really worked hard to be the best mother she could be. My friends, who have been through a lot in life and still are strong & kind. And this may sound strange, but I have inspired myself too, my life wasn’t always easy, but I’ve learned that I’m strong.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
Graduating from University and setting up my own cosmetic brand. It is very difficult to create a brand. It costs a lot of time, money and a lot of patients. But I’m happy with the result.
Who is your favorite fashion designer?
Oh, I have a few. I really like Balmain, Versace, Elie Saab, Yousef Aljasmi & Albina Dyla. I like feminine clothing, with that extra touch of fierceness.
