Surelee Joseph, 24. Fashion Model. Likes dancing & Black Swan; house music & late nights; color black & Goa; colorful sneakers & dark/depressing stories; Kallol Datta and Anand Kabra. Loves pizzas and dark chocolate; Classic Milds & her friend Marvin. Likes Batman. Thinks Spiderman is a sissy superhero. Doesn’t like strawberry and most desserts. Is not much of a computer person…and only goes online for googling something, Facebook, or checking emails. Can’t drink anything else other than Vodka with Red Bull. Dislikes getting up in the morning, anything with wings, and science fiction.
Surelee grew up in Bombay, studied English Literature in college, and sort of started out by doing a TV show – Remix – where she played the character of a tomboyish catholic orphan. The show ran on Star One for two years. Post that she started taking modeling seriously. Lakme Fashion Week was her first major modeling assignment, and has been modeling for about 3 years now.
“ It was difficult for me to get in the industry as there were a lot of girls and a fair deal of competition. I am still very insecure. I feel I haven’t done anything great for the fashion industry yet. Although, I feel, I have been accepted.”
I’d like to get in to designing my own stuff. If I earn enough money then maybe hire a few tailors, and start my own boutique. This is what Marvin and I’ve vaguely planned to do so far.
I’d also like to study journalism and write for a magazine someday.
You read any fashion blogs?
Yours and Malini’s.
If not a model..
..then I’d be doing a regular boring day job.
One thing you’d never do..
A fair and lovely ad.
