Model Spotlight - Featuring: Erifili Sfakianakis
Art Hearts always hits the nail on the head when it comes to casting models and they didn't disappoint for Miami Swim Week. One of the models to grace the runway was Erifili Sfakianakis. She was the opening model to walk for designer brand Lovechell. Erifili stated: "Opening the show for Lovechell Swim was an absolute honor. I knew I had to walk that runway like I owned it". She wore a shaping black one piece with pink and white accents, a Lovechell ribbon choker and a coverup designed with a detachable towel.
Erifili was born and raised in Boston, MA. Her parents migrated to America from Greece in the 80s. Erifili stated: "I’m grateful I grew up very closely to my Greek origins because it’s shaped me into the woman I am today. My modeling career started less than a year ago. My body is 100% natural and plays a big role in my career. I thank the beautiful women in my family! I believe it’s very important to be the role model my younger self needed as well as other young women. I hope I inspire young girls and women to be comfortable in their skin despite the imperfections, insecurities, and judgements we as women face everyday. Our bodies create life. Our bodies are not meant to be perfect. Our bodies are a work of art!" Erifili also walked for other designers during Miami Swim Week such as Megan Mae Miami. She has definitely been an inspiration to other women including aspiring models such as Mya Luciano.
