CARAS Magazine – Belo Francisco Lachowski
CARAS Magazine took some time to speak with Francisco Lachowski about his career in the modeling industry.
Francisco leans agents a red Chevy Cruz with the famous Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown, NY as a back drop for the CARAS article that appeared in the print edition of CARAS as well as the online counterpart to the magazine. It is written in Portuguese so we included some quotes from the article in English…..just for fun.
Integrante do seleto grupo dos 25 Money Guys, os modelos masculinos que mais faturam no universo fashion, o brasileiro Francisco Lachowski (22) acaba de adotar New York como morada após quatro anos entre Paris, Londres e Montreal.
“”I stopped being the boy who earned money and spent it all, and became the man who needs to support a family”
Apesar do sucesso conquistado nas capitais europeias, com direito a campanhas e desfiles para renomadas grifes, o belo guarda com especial carinho a estada canadense. “Minha namorada é de lá e quis ter o nosso filho perto da família.
Milo tem 6 meses, é uma figura”, conta ele, citando a amada, Jessiann Gravel (25). “Deixei de ser o molecão que ganhava dinheiro e torrava tudo para ser o homem que batalha para sustentar uma família. Agora tenho muito mais vontade de crescer na carreira, quero fazer cursos de atuação para me aprimorar e quem sabe, trabalhar como ator”, acrescenta.
“Now I am more inspired to grow in my career, I want to do things to improve myself and perhaps work as an actor someday”
No Castelo de CARAS, em Tarrytown, o curitibano conheceu o Chevrolet Cruze e destacou o design e a tecnologia do automóvel. “Adoro pegar um carro e ir para a praia, mas aqui nos EUA dirijo pouco, o que acaba sendo bom para manter a forma”, diz ele. “Pratico jiu-jítsu e muay thai, mas não quero ficar muito musculoso. Para trabalhar com marcas grandes, tem de ter look slim, europeu”, emenda ele.
The Castle on the Hudson
Long before the Castle Hotel & Spa gained its sterling reputation as a world-class destination for relaxing and romantic getaways with superb cuisine it held a prominent place in Westchester County and New York City society at the turn of the century.
The story of the Castle begins shortly before the turn of the 20th century, when General Howard Carroll, a well-respected newspaperman, playwright and businessman, purchased the land as a home for his growing family. “Carrollcliffe” was built in two stages between 1897 and 1910. Working with noted New York architect Henry Kilburn, Carroll actively assisted in planning the Castle in a style reminiscent of Norman fortification in Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The finished castle boasted 45 rooms.
From the beginning, the Oak Room, historic in its own right, served as the family dining room. Legend has it that the room’s wainscoting was brought over to Tarrytown from General Carroll’s house in St. Germain, outside Paris. Louis XIV had presented this house to James II when he fled to France after having been deposed in England. It was in this room that James’ grandson Prince Charles Edward (“Bonnie Prince Charles”) and Angus MacDonald, representing the Scottish highlanders, plotted the unsuccessful uprising of 1745 in the British Isles to overturn the German king and restore the lineage of James II.
Born in Albany, N.Y. in 1854, Howard Carroll was educated in Albany, New York City, Hanover and Gottingen in Germany, and Geneva, Switzerland. His first and longest position was with The New York Times, where he served as the Washington D.C. correspondent, befriending such leaders as Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and James Garfield. After refusing several official appointments in the Chester Arthur administration, Carroll wrote several plays, including The American Countess, which ran for 200 nights on Broadway. He also authored two books.
