Last month we partnered with Bridge Models for our first ever Influencer Model Search. We were overwhelmed with thousands of applications from across the UK, and are thrilled to announce that Alessandra Petrucci has been chosen as the winner!
Bridge Models is a London based agency who represent models and influencers in the UK and internationally. Like their name suggests, their mission is to ‘bridge the gap’ between standard and plus size in the fashion industry. Bridge have been instrumental in the move towards more diversity in casting, and have been on the forefront of the influencer industry.
Mariam Gomez from Bridge was thrilled with the applications, “We had so many strong candidates apply – it was hard to choose a winner! Alessandra has a great platform and we are looking forward to working together to help her grow her brand even further.”
Alessandra has scored herself a contract with Bridge Models as part of their Influencer board, so expect to see a lot more of her in 2019! We caught up with her to find out how she reacted to the good news…
How long have you been on StarNow and what prompted you to join?
I’m sure I was one of the first people to join StarNow – it’s been a long time! I had heard that it was a good platform for creatives to connect with brands so gave it a go and am still a part of it.
How did you find out about the Bridge Models Influencer Search?
As StarNow have recently added an influencer category and I am an influencer myself I’d been keen on checking what sort of adverts there was and then I saw the Bridge Models Influencer Search and thought YES!
What was it like to find out you’d been chosen as the winner?
Absolutely blessed! I’m so excited and ready for the next step in my career and have to thank StarNow for putting this opportunity in front of me and also Bridge Models for picking me! Thank you!
