Recently scouted on Instagram, Markus Pichlmayer grew up in the suburbs of Vienna, Austria. Never having thought that this would one day become his path in life, Markus has previously been approached by numerous scouts around the world. TALENTMAN is proud to have Markus as our latest addition. In his free time, this warrior plays professional soccer and enjoys university back home.

Our 'oriental pearl' Prim Patnasiri is on her way to becoming an iconic brand in fashion! Currently the campaign face of The Body Shop worldwide, this Thai beauty has been successfully placed in London & Stockholm with top representation. Back in London looking better than ever, the future is looking bright for Prim!

High Snobiety sits down with our 'oriental pearl' Prim Patnasiri who proves that beauty & brains still exist in the modeling industry today.
"We cast Prim to be one of the few womenswear models in the men's shows in January – her look became one of the most iconic of our season. Interested in work behind the camera, Prim is also inquisitive and informed, planning to direct her own work in the coming years. Constantly questioning how we receive and perceive information, we look forward seeing her own work very soon…" - High Snobiety
Prim furthermore discusses: "One thing I am noticing is the selective coverage of media and how it only portrays what sells and not what matters, for example, the war in Syria. Trump is causing a lot of controversies right now which gets so much attention but still, no one seems to know what to do about the bombing and killings in Syria…"
When asked about the future of fashion, Prim had much on her mind. "I think the future of fashion will incorporate more gender-neutral concepts since there has been a large movement recently that encourages people to consider a person’s gender on a spectrum rather than through defined labels," she states.
"I'm also fascinated by Bhutan because it is a country that doesn’t use modernization and technology to influence their country. Their way of life has not changed in years – it's also interesting that they limit the number of people who can visit their country," she expresses.
Finally, Prim shares how everything seems to be built to make life more convenient for people. "For example, if you want to watch live jazz music you can just do that on youtube. You don’t need to travel all the way to a jazz bar to do that. Getting out of your comfort zone and actually doing things, in reality, is a much better way to create experiences in life," Prim says.
Prim is lensed by Daniel Fraser with art direction by Atip W & video chats by Oliver Boo.

We at TALENTMAN think you're dynamite. What in your opinion makes your dynamite?
I think first & far most, it’s GOD who helps me bring my ‘dynamite.’ God really brings out the best in me! Second, I think I am ‘dynamite’ because of my mentors who have all helped me grow and have taught me much.
You've been in the business for several years. How can TALENTMAN help you elevate your career?
I believe that TALENTMAN has the drive & passion to push their models to the next level. I trust in Michael’s ability to really bring out the best in his models & he has been doing a great job thus far!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years & what do you hope to be doing?
I see myself establishing my brand more, getting into hosting & partnering with my family in making organic products sourced from our organic farm in the Philippines.
What is your message to young girls looking up to you?
I love you and thank you so much for your support & positive views towards me & my career. Ultimately, I pray that they will have the courage and strength to follow their dreams! I want them to live their life to the fullest - as cliché as it sounds, that’s very important!
Name 3 top models you look up to & why?
Liu Wen: I always call her “mom.” I don’t personally know her, but she’s just so badass & a top Asian model! I started looking up to her when I started my career. She always shines in everything she does!
Kate Moss: She’s a model that transcends all times. I love her cool & effortless vibe.
Gigi Hadid: She’s actually more of a recent “girl crush.” I admire her savvy business mindset & her style!
What does a day in the life of Danica Magpantay look like? (Routine)
Every day entails a different routine. Follow me: @icamagpantay & you might just get a better idea! ;)
What has New York taught you about modeling & life in general?
You have to make it happen for yourself. What I mean by that is no one can & should limit you to get to where you want to get & achieve what it is you have set for yourself. It’s up to you to hustle and grind daily.
List a quote you live by daily
“I can do anything through Him who gives me strength.” - Philippians 4:13
What has been one of the most challenging obstacles you had to overcome?
Learning to separate yourself from work. This is industry is an industry filled with rejection. Sometimes it really gets to you & you become hard on yourself. I was able to over come this by really getting to know myself more and more & understanding that being a model is not the only thing that defines me.
Being a Filipina, do you feel pressured to represent your country? If yes, how so?
I don’t really feel pressured to represent my country. As long as I become my best self every day, then I sincerely believe I am representing the Philippines at my best.
Joining TALENTMAN is a new career chapter. What are your hopes & expectations in moving forward?
I expect to have a great working relationship with TALENTMAN. I know that I will only be able to further improve with the agency. I look forward to meeting more people in the industry and further grow my international placements & clientele as well! The future looks bright!
