Chances are you may have seen 19-year-old Bria Castello’s stunning photographs in Elle Canada or plastered over Tumblr and chances are you had to do a double take. After all, this gorgeous Elmer Olsen model holds a striking similarity to the likes of Zoe Saldana which might be part of the reason her modeling career exploded so quickly. Not only has Bria walked countless shows at World MasterCard Fashion Week (including Pink Tartan and Lucian Matis) she has also strutted her stuff for some of the most prestigious designers in the world such as Greta Constatine and Haider Ackermann.
Bria’s modeling career began when she was just 14-years-old “I was scouted by Elmer Olsen himself just walking on the street with some friends in Toronto” Bria says of how her fashion career began. It is clear that Bria has learnt an immense amount about fashion and modeling over the years and its obvious this girl adores her life in the fashion lane! “The best part of working in the modeling industry is meeting all the people. I can honestly say I’ve made some lifetime friends from this job.” When asked about the other perks of model life Bria admits “getting to wear designer clothes isn’t too bad either!”
While Bria has traveled around the world to model, her favorite gig occurred in her hometown of Toronto! Bria scored a coveted job working with Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 which she says was totally surreal “Working closely with Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 when they came to Toronto for the 25th anniversary of Fashion Cares was amazing. I spent a lot of time one on one with the designers during the fittings and at the show which was sooooo cool because I’m such a huge fan.” Sounds pretty cool, huh?
Bria is definitely one of Canada’s most fabulous models and her work makes it perfectly clear: this girl is headed for superstar status! Bria has accomplished so much in her modeling career, however she is still striving to make all her model dreams come true and has big goals for the future “I would love to travel to Europe, or go to New York again for work,” comments Bria “I would also love to work with Alexander Wang! I love everything about him.” she continues. F&B Inc has no doubts Bria Castello will continue to shoot to the top! Keep your eyes out for this girl on the cover of Vogue shortly, it’s clear the top is where Bria is headed.
