GIRL TALK WITH VALERIE VAN DER GRAAF, THE NEW AMBASSADOR SO PASSIONATA !

Charmed by her freshness of spirit and her delicate sensuality, we chose her as the ambassador of the new Passionata collection. Meeting in simplicity with an irresistible model full of humor.


 

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Rotterdam. My Dad is a bookkeeper and my Mum works for a bank. They were a bit scared in the beginning but now they are very proud of what I am doing and my Mum is my biggest fan!

How did you begin your career?

I got spotted on a social media website called ‘Hyves’. An agency contacted me and I went to the test shoot with my Mum and that’s where it all started. 

 

What are your hobbies?

I love cycling and swimming. I miss horse riding the most, it is difficult to do while living in London and travelling a lot.

What type of lingerie do you usually wear?

It depends on the mood I am in. Sometimes I feel like wearing sexy, red lingerie and sometimes I feel like wearing casual, simple and beautiful lingerie.

 

Do you love the style of Passionata lingerie?

I really love the lingerie of Passionata.  It is fun, sexy and cute all at the same time. I love the cheerful colours as well as the sexy bras.

 Did you know the brand before shooting for them?

I’ve known the brand for a couple of years since seeing a beautiful advertisement at a London underground station.

 

How did you find the shoot?

The shoot was great fun, and it was great to shoot at a fun fair! With fun people to work with and such a cool location! The props were amazing as well - candy floss, big balloons, the cutest little rabbit ever and a bear costume!!

 What did you think of the theme?

Such a great theme!  At the funfair and cute and sexy. Very much Passionata.

 

What did you think of the new Spring Summer 2015 collection?

Really nice collection and I love the colours! Very, very beautiful – I definitely have some lingerie shopping to do!

 What will you bring to the brand?

Hopefully a bit of fresh and sexy mixed together with fun and cuteness! A lot of energy and youth!
