TERESE PAGH: "WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I WANTED TO SAVE THE ENTIRE WORLD, I STILL DO, BUT I BELIEVE YOU CAN DO A LOT BY BEING NICE TO THE PEOPLE YOU MET THROUGHOUT THE DAY."

Who is Terese Pagh?
Terese Pagh. A young woman, who loves to learn and explore the unknown.
What did you do before modeling?
Created laptops out of paper, was a year ahead in math of the other kids, played trumpet in a harmony orchestra and all kinds of sports. I was discovered sitting in the middle of the main pedestrian street of Copenhagen by the former director of Elite Cph, Trice Thomsen, when I was 12 - and signed right away.
If you weren’t a model what would you be?
Inventor and music composer.
Your personal passion or hidden talents?
Editing and color correcting videos all night. Working on film sets. I loooove carrying equipment while joking around... Don’t why but this it makes me very happy and satisfied. Like when I get home at 2 am from 18 hours work, I’m so tired that everything makes perfect sense.
I love learning about everything, so when I by accident discovered the material poly methyl mathalcrylate (a type of plastic) I suggested to the costume designer I was assisting to make the entire costumes based on the material, I helped her make them in very short time and this very simple bracelet became the most poplar piece. And we became really close friends and co owners of the company. The jewelry changes colors depending on the angle you look at it (or from where it is illuminated from) and it casts beautiful reflections and shadows that never looks the same. (LUMA – Jewels of Perception).
Its funny because I’m not really that into jewelry be completely honest, but I think I have gotten obsessed with these jewels. I usually wear black like everyone else, but the jewelry is so colorful and reminds me of everything I like I life. Like the rainbow colored Parrot I used to have flying in my apt in LES, no cage open windows! … I think I forgot to mention that I love nature, parrots, surfing and scuba diving (walking on the bottom of the ocean its like walking on another planet!!). When I was younger I wanted to save the entire world, I still do, but I believe you can do a lot by being nice to the people you met throughout the day.
Ten years from now (you will be…)?
Hahaha. No idea :D In 20 years I wouldn't mind be a skilled Cinematographer....
Iridescence. Because color theory has taught me a lot about how the eyes/mind/human perception works.
What’s no fun?
Going to bed waking up happy and refreshed the next morning.
Current 'eye candy'?
Still, my jewels. :)
Nart Shippuden (Japanese Anime show...)
What’s your beauty secret or essential grooming routine?
The less products the better. If I use face cream and forget to use it one day my skin will freak out, like its physically withdrawn from the product... The skin can take care of itself. For removing makeup almond oil is the best.
