04 set, 2013
Well, lets go! My name is Alexsandro Duarte da Costa, but in the fashion world people know me as Alex Costa, this is my artistic name! Before modeling, I was a soccer player and I´ve played in some soccer teams in Brazil.
I am very relaxed person, I love my family and I have 4 passions in my life!
First one-my mom
Third -play guittar
Fourth – be a model
When I was playing soccer in Marcilio Dias soccer club, I was facing a very difficult moment in my life, so I decided to quit soccer. A tough decision but then a friend of mine asked me if I´d like to pursue a modeling career. He is a model and I said to myself ‘why not’. He introduced me to my first modeling agency, they approved me and I did my first testshoot to my portfolio. The photographer was Sergio Ferretti, he is one of the owners of my mother agency DF Model, located in Joinville, Santa Catarina.
Posing to photographers: performance and good ideas
I like when the photographer have a good performance to shoot and good ideas to new poses!
My first testshoot naked was 5 years ago with the brazilian photographer Marcelo Kimonat from Balneario Camburiú. He is one of the best photographers from Santa Catarina. The teamwork was amazing 3 girls makeup artist, hair dresser, stylist and the photographer, I was really ashamed, because I had to get naked in front of them, but thanks God, the pics turned out great!
The funny catwalks moments
I remember a funny backstage 1 year ago in Milano fashion week, Some girls mistook me with the actor of the movie Twilight and they embraced me, kissed me and shouted..Jacob Jacob Jacob..it was really funny hahhahahhaah
