Romanians in the World – Mario Catană


Category : Fashion and Beauty, Romania in the World

Time to boast about some Romanians again! This time I’ve chosen a person from the fashion industry. His name: Mario Catana.

He started modeling when he was 10. It all began as a joke, his sister took him at one of her castings. Lucky guy, he began working right after college, during a period when boys like him were at in high demand. His slim and high figure enabled him to model for all Romanian famous designers. He finished college, played the role of the journalist for a while until he finally decided to travel. He gathered a lot of experience in 5 years, getting noticed in shows like Armani, Carlo Pignatelli, Francesco Smalto, Konrad Muhr or in French banks, shampoos, and beer commercials rolling all over the world. He is currently the Armani image in the world. (Yellow!) He was designated “Male Model of the Year” in 2004. He speaks of himself as being shy, but ambitious, obsessed with cleaning up, extremely self-criticizing and…obsessed with modeling. (No way…really?)

“The people from the agency called me and told me to take a seat for they have something important to tell me. How did I feel? Vibrating, accomplished and feeling I have touched my goals. The first thing I did right after was to call my parents and my sister to tell them. “

We’re proud of you too, Mario!
