Model, yogi and festival lover – we knew Natascha Elisa had to be part of Liberated Heart’s Spring/Summer collection – The Bloom Generation. We took 5 with her to talk about her global travels, fave festivals and that time she sang ‘A Whole New World’ with Cara Delevigne in the middle of a desert…
1. What do you love most about modelling?
There are so many things I love about my job! I love that when ever I’m on a shoot, I am able to work with a team of creatives. Everyone involved from the creative director to the photographer to the make up is an artist and all have a vision. I am so inspired when everyone comes together on the day and creates magic!
2. Your Instagram is filled with so many stunning locations and epic nature shots… Where’s been your favourite place to visit and why?
Wow this is such a hard question to answer! I can’t pick just one! I recently visited India which was a truly incredible experience! Especially beautiful Udaipur and sleeping under the stars on safari in the Thar Desert Rajasthan. I do frequently visit Indonesia which definitely feels like my second home. I also have to say Sri Lanka, Japan, Nepal and Sweden where all magical places to visit!
3. We know you love festivals. This year you’ve been to Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle and Burning Man to name just a few… What’s the best festival you’ve ever been to and why?
I feel that all of these festivals are special in their own way, they are also all very different! This year was my first time at Burning Man and experiencing it for the whole 10 days really blew me away. I have never met so many kind, positive and generous people at a festival than I did at Burning Man. I felt that everyone there was vibrating at such a high frequency that everything fell into place. I also really enjoying the digital detox, without reception I was able to live every moment without a phone or social media. I was also unable to plan, which meant everything flowed in the way it was supposed to, I frequently saw those who I had a connection with, without arranging a time or a place. It felt that things that were supposed to happen, happened which made for a really incredible experience, one I can’t quite comprehend.
4. Tell us what went down with Cara Delevigne at Burning Man?
Cara and I spontaneously broke into song and dance whilst admiring an epic desert sunset at Burning Man. Sometimes words can’t explain feelings and you just need to describe them lyrically! You can watch our accidentally synchronised performance here.
5. What LH pieces are you loving most this season?
The Utopia Satin Dress and The Butterfly Effect Velvet Set! Both are divine!
6. What’s the last song you played?
The last thing I played on my laptop was actually a Yokoo Set by All Day I Dream
The last thing I played on my record player was Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
7 What’s your favourite way to unwind?
Riding my bicycle down to the beach and swimming in the ocean 🙂 I feel so blessed to be able to live on the beach!
8. What’s your spirit animal?
I can never really figure out which sprit animal I am between a dolphin and a goat. So I just took an online quiz and it told me I’m a butterfly. Now I’m even more confused. Perhaps I’m a dolphin butterfly hybrid. Like a Dolphin with really colourful wings, that can swim and also fly. Now that would be awesome.
9. Three words that sum you up?
Bubbly, creative & adventurous!
