By Nicole Forbis

I walked with the Venezuelan Miss Universe, Gabriela Isler after the Custo Barcelona show through the tents at Lincoln Center at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and found out that this is her first ever show at New York Fashion Week!

Forbis: What did you think of the Custo Barcelona show?

Isler: The show was great, it was amazing. I loved that they used all kinds of colors and textures because you think it was winter, you think everything would be black and gray, but this was gold and red and green. So I enjoyed it, it was very fun, the collection. I hope to have the opportunity to come to another [show], this is my first [New York Fashion Week] show.

Forbis: What is your favorite part of Fashion Week so far?

Isler: The runway! I’m a model, I would like to do the runway!

Forbis: The readers want to know, what is your favorite Latin dish?

Isler: From Venezuela, my country. Pancakes!

Forbis: What is a piece of advice for young Latinas?

Isler: Believe in yourself and enjoy the moment.

What do you think of Gabriela's advice and her ironic love of carb-rich pancakes?
