Happy to have you here, Alaina. Tell us your story, how did you got started modeling and where is your home at the moment?
I was born and raised in Massachusetts and moved to Rhode Island in 2013. I decided to start modeling in 2020, as it was something I've always wanted to do, and I felt at that time, the time was right.
Tell us more about yourself. What else do you do next to modeling?
I love spending time with my family, friends and dog Bryson. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, running, biking, and being at the beach. I also have a love for fashion and styling everyday looks.
What do you love most about being a model?
I love being an inspiration to those around me to prove that if you have a passion, you can go after it at any age. All it takes is drive and determination.
What part of modeling is your favorite?
Definitely runway. I love meeting all different designers and hearing their stories about how got they started in the business. It just connects you that much more to the pieces of clothing you wear on the runway. Each piece tells a story, and its touching to be the one to get to share these styles on the runway to the public.
What fuels your imagination and provides you with inspiration?
"I get it from my Mama" but seriously, ever since I was a little girl my mom would make all of my Halloween costumes and make sure I was all accessorized from head to toe. She would get extremely creative and sew my costumes for a final look that looked like I got it at a Halloween costume store. She also made me dresses for the holidays and purses to match, hats, gloves and after I had my daughter, she made custom headbands for her. Her passion has since been passed down to me and that's why I'm so passionate about fashion and style.
What achievements are you most proud of today?
I would say, of course having my beautiful daughter is my biggest achievement in life, but when it comes to modeling, I'm most proud my confidence, the connections and friendships I've made being in this business, the wonderful opportunities to walk in different runway shows and lastly to being published in many different print & digital magazines worldwide.
