Meet Tereza Hascakova, the latest star of our Meet the Muse series. The model and style maven is currently based in Milan and, in our photo shoot, you can see her wearing labels such as VETEMENTS, Palace, FENTY PUMA, Off-White and MISBHV.
We asked Tereza a handful of questions in order to get to know her better. See what she had to say below and check out our previous installment with Anita Giancarli. Keep up with Tereza through Instagram.
Describe your current style.
I really like mixing all style. I set my own rules, looking for my own vision of trends and I don’t look for brands or rare pieces in particular; I always go for what is appealing to me visually. Mixing high fashion with streetwear and fast fashion.
If you weren’t doing what you are now, where would you work?
I always was interested in psychology. It is a field that you may apply to everything, because when you understand how people think, you understand everything you need for any job. If I wouldn’t do fashion, I would definitely wanted to be in psychology, not the exact one of sitting, taking notes, I would wanted to work in the field, applying specifically forensic psychology that is used for the violent crimes. Psychopath’s mind interests me, heh.
Dream collaboration? (with whom and what would you create?
Do a fashion show with Acne Studios in Berghain club in Berlin. It is not exactly “my dream” collaboration, but I once did proposal as for a project in my school and while reading the question it just naturally pop up in my mind.
If you weren’t in your current city, where would you live? (also why?)
Some place with animals, lot of sun and kind people, I don’t know where is that, but if you do, DM me please!
Who is the film character you’re most like?
I love Forrest Gump. I like how naive to love he was and very kind and good person. I like that. I think he experienced and most of all felt the real unconditional love and I think that is beautiful, rare and inspiring.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
To read books, everything else you need to know you find in them, and while reading the books to be open minded. On purpose I didn’t mention anything particular, because it sounds cliché and I want to avoid that, but the cliché stuff is very true.
Last lesson you learned?
I learned how important is letting go of people that are dragging you down. Letting go is very hard but if it happens it feels so easy. Letting go is freedom.
What in life are you most grateful for?
Family and fans. Family because they are the only people who stayed “for better or worse” while everyone left and my fans because they are very important part of the process of my journey to chase my dreams, to do what I love and I know their value, we all went through the very “human” phases of life and feelings it is just about accepting and understanding the youth. I like the kids, they are so inspiring and full of energy it keeps me motivated.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?
I wanted to say something like read people’s mind, but that is scary hahaha, I don’t want that. For now, I feel it is pretty cool just to start for myself waking up on time and not to snooze my phone five times. The quality of time management sounds pretty good to me, haha.
What is the quality you value most in friendship?
Loyalty. I think you know sometimes your friends did f*ck up, but they are your friends so stay by their side and in the right time tell them that it wasn’t right. Being loyal, true and honest is pure gold these days so if you have it, treasure it.
What is the greatest accomplishment of your life so far?
Since I am working in fashion everyone expect from me to say something that goes along with fashion but for the sake of honesty I am mostly thinking my greatest accomplishment is to grow as a person to a good human being of ability to helping others and I am currently doing that along my job in fashion, so life is good (:.
What is something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time, but haven’t yet?
To buy my own dog. I love animals, I really need one to stay with me. We have a lot of dogs at home so I miss their company so much.
What album do you currently have on repeat?
Kid Cudi’s newest baby — passion, pain and demon slayin’. Kid Cudi, is not only my favorite rapper but also artist. He inspire me so much as a human being. He truly is one of a kind. What he sings i really believe that he lives it and he didn’t sell himself to the industry. He is very important for music now days, I always say is the biggest artist that does not get the right amount of attention. Also such as M.I.A amazing women. Love her.
What is your most treasured possession? (also why?)
A talisman made out of gold that I got from my mom while living in Paris. Little Prince is my favorite book, I absolutely adore the book, and each year I made myself a promise to read it all over again and each year there is something as I grow, I discover something new and the new I keep with me for the rest of the year.
What skill do you possess that people wouldn’t expect from you?
I was riding western for seven years. In case we go back in time, I would manage pretty well, if that counts as a skill 😀
