I am truly honored to be ever featured as on one of the model on, Secrets of the Modeling World by Alan Loayza.

From a distance, on that cool day on Melrose, came a vision, strutting her stuff on the sidewalk, with her tall frame, blunt bangs, adorable face (even behind the chunky sunglasses), holding a NEXT book. Our amazing investigative skills hypothesized that the Leslie Fang, the woman we were about to randomly meet, was a model. Duh. We stopped her after one of her castings and so glad that we did. Leslie answered a few questions for us including some about her blog where you can peek into her modeling life and her self inspired fashion trends.

I remember from being a little girl in Taiwan, I was always fascinated by fashion and beauty. Having been approached at a early age of 13 by scouts but also coming from a traditional asian family. Education was above all else and I was required to finish my college degree than pursue my own area of interest. With that mindset, during the end of college, I got scouted again and that's how it all started.

I distinctly remember my first shoot, I thought to myself this is surreal and I am finally doing it. It felt like second nature and surprisingly very comfortable being on set and in front of the camera. Given the fact I've learned a lot of tips and tricks along the way. Like the saying, being pretty is one thing, but camera presence is another. As a child, I loved making my mom and my sister victims of my makeup and hair experiments. It was nice to finally have makeup and hair done on me.

I love fashion and modeling made me fall in love with fashion more. You should wear the clothes and not let the label wear you. I base my styling on my mood which varies from day to day. One day I can be wearing gothic chic and the next I am sporting the Lolita attire. I like making the unworkable work and create individualism. Of course, I do make sure the color match, pattern, or material will match in an off beat way.

Leslie has worked a few things including Paul Mitchell, Microsoft, Teen Vogue, and walked for the Art of Elysium charity.

****NOTES: In addition, I've graced the cat walk for Missoni, Heatherette, Jeremy Scott, Academy of Arts, and Valentine (informal) to mention a few. Up coming issues in magazine as well.
