C'est Prune: How did you first get into the modeling business?
Serigne: I was always approached by scouts from the minute I arrived in New York but I decided to work with André Cowan from Gnetics Management when he approached me in the subway on my way to school. We had a meeting with his team at their offices and I decided to give it a go.
C'est Prune: What sets you apart from other models?
Serigne: I would say my Genes LOL! Definitely, have to thank my parents for this gift also I have the perfect fit for the Luxury brands and I work hard to make sure I am bringing the designers' vision to life so customers can enjoy the clothing when they wear them. And I think people love my walk.
