MODEL Agatha Relota has been dancing since she was four years old so, when she decided to write a children's book - Carla & Leo's World of Dance - there was only one subject she wanted to explore. Despite an impressive modeling cv - Storm Models' Relota has worked with ChanelYves Saint LaurentHermès and Nina Ricci and been photographed by Patrick DemarchelierSteven KleinJuergen Teller and David LaChapelle - she decided the world of dance held more excitement and allure for children.
