The Dragonfly Agency Notable Clients: Nicole Kwon Concept Store, Mario Alberto Designs, Inner. Orbit. Systems. by Yasmina Johnston, DFW Style Daily DFW Style Daily: At what age did you begin modeling? Were you scouted or did you pursue modeling as a career? Loren Kavo: “I have wanted to be an actress and performer since about the age of three, but I would have never considered I could be a model. When I was 15, I was at the Parks Mall in Arlington with my best friend, and I entered a modeling competition hosted by a well-known agency in Dallas. The agency contacted me, but after that I swayed away from the idea, and focused on my other arts. I went back and forth with it starting again at age 19, but finally began putting a lot of focus on modeling in the last two and a half years.” What is the craziest, silliest, or most unusual thing you have ever done on a shoot? “I am the worst person to ask, because I don’t find many things silly or unusual! To me, everything is an exciting experience, and there is so much to learn and feel in every second. I have the most fun while shooting by creating characters and telling stories through images.” Yasmina Johnston, Mario Alberto Gallegos, Charles Smith II, Binzario Couture, and a few other local designer are going places. The passion and creativity behind a lot of the designers in Dallas is amazing, so I do look forward to working with them more in the future. But, of course, I also have big dreams of working with international brands such as Halston, Alexander Wang, Marchesa, Balmain, Givenchy, and Prada.” Do you have a role model? What have you learned from his or her example? “My role model is every single person who does not give up through struggle, who has passion and dedication towards their dreams, gives love selflessly to those around them, and realizes that the simplicity in life is what is important.” The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I also just finished Paulo Coelho’s Eleven Minutes. I am a book nerd.” Do you have any hidden talents or interests? Surprise us! “Well, I will keep my hidden talents hidden! My interests include criminal psychology and astronomy, and I am a actress, writer, singer, and artist. In fact, I was recently featured in a music video by Plain Jane Frances, Tony Q, and Corn, entitled The Way. I had the best time filming with these artists.” Perot Museum, wandering with good company, singing and dancing erratically everywhere, lots of laughing, copious amounts of whiskey and coffee. I’d end it by driving absolutely nowhere, and then exploring and laughing some more.” All images courtesy of Loren Kavo.
