Welcome back to another KAC Model Spotlight where we get to know the bright, brilliant and beautiful faces of KAC! If you keep up with us on Instagram, you've probably noticed our latest shoot featuring the lovely, Feriel Cheurfa. Feriel is a natural in front of the camera, and all of us on location noticed that her sweet smile and happy-go-lucky attitude are contagious! Combine all of that with her passion for fashion, and dedication to school and work, and you'll see why she fits right into the KAC Dynasty.
We were lucky enough to catch up with Feriel after the shoot to chat about her favorite cities, daily inspirations and her to-die-for sense of style (she carried a gorgeous Goyard bag on set!). Let's take a minute to learn more about Feriel!
Q&A with Feriel Cheurfa
KAC: Hi Feriel! We had a blast shooting street style photos with you last week. What was the experience like for you?
FC: "I love street style photos!! They’re so candid and so in right now. I loved working with you. I loved how we were able to bring both of our styles together and create so many cute photos!"
KAC: You have a natural gift for posing and you exude confidence. Do you have any tips for aspiring models trying to feel comfortable in fashion photos?
FC: "Awe thank you for that! I would have to say just know what poses look best on you. Like know your angles. Sometimes it’s best to just have your friends pull out their phone and just start taking candid photos of you. Not only are you getting cute photos but you can figure out what you look good in and not. Also sometimes when doing a shoot bring a friend that can help you out and makes you comfortable!"
KAC: We understand that you have a serious case of wanderlust! Where are some of your favorite travel destinations, and why do you love them?
FC: "I’m not just saying this because my family is from here… but Morocco is seriously one of my favourite countries to visit by far!! There’s something to do for everyone. Whether you like the cold, head on up to the Atlas Mountains for a tour. You’re into the hot weather go to Marrakech or an awesome time. The country is filled with history and beautiful scenery."
KAC: Out of all the cities you’ve visited, which one has the best shopping?
FC: "Hmm, I mean most people would obviously go and say Paris right away; I love Paris it’s every street you turn to has something you want to buy. However I’m going to have to say Morocco in general. Morocco is actually where I’m from; so going back there and seeing the latest fashion trends and such just gives me inspiration. All european countries showcase their fashion in Morocco, so I kind of get the best of both worlds, European fashion, along with the cultural Moroccan clothing. I love being able to go to a souk (market) in Morocco and bargain for just about anything."
KAC: You’re extremely driven in both your work and college career. Where do you look for empowerment and inspiration? Do you have any role models?
FC: "I would have to say my mother is my role model. She pushes me to do my best and bring out the best in me. I wouldn’t have had the work ethic that I have now, if she was not pushing me at every step."
KAC: Your style is out of this world! Who are a few of your top current favorite designers, and why do you love their aesthetics?
FC: "I love Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Their styles are so classic and they never go out of style. You can purchase a Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 and it’ll be in style for years and years. Something a mother could pass down to her daughter or son in the future. Chanel is just one of those brands that will never go out of style. You can get a jumbo lambskin purse and the quality of that bag will last you for years. I love how Chanel is coming out with anything that’s all black with PEARLS!!!"
KAC: Final question! Of the three KAC handbags you modeled, which one was your favorite?
FC: "I would have to say the Grey Python! It’s absolutely beautiful and goes with everything...the quality of the bag was impeccable."
A huge thank you to Feriel for taking the time to share her thoughts on fashion, travel and beyond with us! Who else is dying to plan a shopping trip to Morocco now? We definitely are!
