Tako Natsvlishvili is a 19-year-old model from Georgia. She has worked with agencies such as Uno Models (Barcelona), Iconic Management (Berlin), IMM Bruxelles (Brussels), Elite Model Management (Copenhagen), Modellink (Gothenburg), and Dolls Model. Currently, Tako is signed with the Next Management modelling agency.
Her international career started in Hong Kong with one of the modelling agencies ELIT. Living and working in the city was not her best memory but she believes it was a worthwhile experience for her development in fashion.
She has also experienced fashion industry in China.She had to live in equally difficult conditions in that country. But she knew she needed that kind of experience in order to find it easier to live and work in Europe.
At the age of 16, she went to Paris and worked with Versace, Armani, Elie Saab, Dior, and Ralph&Russo. The best memory for the model turns out to be the experience with Versace and Armani. She was walking with top models at the catwalk. It was an unbelievable experience for her to be with top models such as Naomi Campbell backstage.
Tako auditioned at Channel castings. She was rejected the first two times from the castings. On the third try, she succeeded at first but when she was called for fitting she failed to fit the costume. She also tried to participate in the Victoria’s Secret 2017 and 2018 casting. In 2017, she was a finalist but this year, she failed to make it to the second round.
The fashion industry is full of challenges and Tako got used to the fact that triumphs and failures are commonplace. Many models put great effort to compete with each other which is why she has to be on special diets and to do certain exercises at the same time.
For Victoria Secret’s castings, she was training in a famous fitness center where the models of Victoria’s Secret prepare for catwalks. She was trained by a famous trainer. The exercises often made her cry but the result was already noticeable in just two weeks.
The Georgian model prefers classical and vintage style. She tries to have shoes, a bag and a glasses of leading brand and as for clothes, it is not important for her to wear necessarily brand ones. Her favorite shopping places are in New York and London.
