PONY RYDER: Eve what is your primary occupation today?
EVE SALVAIL: My primary occupation is Disc Jockey.

PONY RYDER: How did you start DJ-ing?
EVE SALVAIL: Music has always been a big part of my life and I guess Deejaying was just a natural progression.

PONY RYDER: What are your current projects?

EVE SALVAIL: The project I am currently involved in cannot be disclosed yet, but (hint hint) it is music related.

PONY RYDER: Have you ever done a soundtrack for a fashion show & how important is the music on fashion shows?

EVE SALVAIL: I have done many Soundtracks for Fashion Shows. As a model I always felt the music dictates the mood of the show and being a Deejay I not only understand what the model feels but I also help the designer interpret his or her vision and inspiration for the Collection.

PONY RYDER: We’re sure you’ve answered this question too many times already, but the younger generations may not remember the story – what is the story behind your famous dragon tattoo?

EVE SALVAIL: I wanted to shave my head and quit modeling. My dad dared me to take it on step further. The dragon came from an 800 years old Chinese artifact. I stayed true to the original design and dimensions.

PONY RYDER: Has your unconventional look been limiting in the past?

EVE SALVAIL: I think limited is a state of mind!

PONY RYDER: Back in the 90's you gained a lot of attention as one of the „it girls“ on the fashion scene, and you've worked with some of the most prestigious clients. Did it all happen suddenly?
EVE SALVAIL: It happened instantly after being invited by Jean Paul Gaultier.

PONY RYDER: The models were closer to celebrity status than they are nowadays. Why has that changed, in your opinion?

EVE SALVAIL: I do not know why, but I do miss the diva days!
