Aline Weber on Haute Couture
The Brazilian model is in high demand and walked in 32 shows during the Fall/Winter 12 season. Working so hard for four weeks takes its toll on the star, so she makes sure she takes time off beforehand.
“In August, I always take two weeks off to rest up. The first week, I see my parents in Brazil and the second I go to this tiny island just south of Brazil with my boyfriend. Nature is all around us and the island is just full of hippies and fishermen. It’s very quiet and beautiful,” she told WWD.
In the midst of the shows Aline always tries to make time for herself, and she finds reading and watching TV helps her relax. If there’s time, she’ll also treat herself to a foot massage.
The model usually walks in the haute couture shows, which are currently being held in Paris. This time around she decided not to travel to them as she had other work offers in New York City, where she lives.
Aline loves working during couture season as the outfits are so surreal.
“I love couture – all the designers’ crazy imaginations come out with these insane creations. The only thing is with the long dresses, it can be little bit difficult on the runway,” she laughed.
