Model of the Month | Questions with Yuri Pleskun

yuribio Model of the Month | Questions with Yuri Pleskun

The Fashionisto: When you think modeling, what jobs come to mind and what makes it so memorable?

Yuri Pleskun: Chimney sweep, janitor, computer programmer, garbage man. My mom loves me more now.

TF: Tell us the basics…

YP: I was born on May 14th, 1990. I’m from Bronx, NY and I still live there.

TF: How often are you home?

YP: I am home usually more than half of the year since I am based in New York. I get to see my family more than other models, so I am grateful for that.

TF: When did you start modeling?

YP: I started modeling about 2 years ago. I was discovered at 3 AM by a drunk chick (Gina Jean) who ended up introducing me to Re:Quest and my awesome booker Gaspard.

TF: How did you like this past New York fashion week?

YP: It was like getting my teeth pulled out…through a straw.

TF: Going to castings this season?

YP: I’m not really hoping or planning on going to castings, but if I’m in town, I’m sure my agents will force me to.

    I'm not sure who made them, but it's either Jeremy Scott for Adidas or Obesity & Speed according to this Fashionisto post:
