ANA BEATRIZ BARROS | FALL 2016
"The main quality for strong women is respect for themselves. This means taking care of yourself. Be strong enough to earn your own money, be free to decide what to do, and share all of it with love."
You started out as client at JA, what first drew you to the brand?
I loved everything! I’m in love with special accessories and jewelry. They make you unique and give personality to your everyday outfit. I loved Jacquie’s designs.
This was your first time working with the JA Tribe, any fun memories from the photoshoot you’d like to share?
The shoot was amazing! The tuning of the girls was awesome! I felt very comfortable and I think the results of that will be wonderful.
What was it like working with Jacquie, Naj and the Bartoli sisters?
It was great working with this team! Perfect from the beginning to the end! It was an honor for me. They are all very kind and very intelligent. I really loved doing this job.
The looks from the campaign were inspired from disco in the 70s. Who are some of your fashion icons from that era?
70s style is amazing! I like the boho, hippie chic look. Like Janis Joplin, it’s all just soft, cool, and unpretentious style.
What was your favorite look from the campaign?
All! I loved each of them, each one with its particularity.
How did wearing the jewelry make you feel?
Jewelry always makes a woman feel beautiful and powerful. I believe that jewelry is essential.
You are from Brazil, but have traveled all over the world. What qualities do you think strong women share across cultures?
The main quality for strong women is respect for themselves. This means taking care of yourself. Be strong enough to earn your own money, be free to decide what to do, and share all of it with love.
Tell us three things you love about the Brazilian culture?
This one is easy! Food, music and contagious happiness.
