Exclusive: Celebrity Trend-setter, Influencer and Super Model Simonetta Lein Talks Social Responsibility, Inspiring Others and More

Touted by Fashion Week Online as one of the top 15 fashion influencers in the world, Simonetta Lein has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Fashion Week Online, Vanity Fair Italy, Vogue Italy, Elle Italy, and Marie Claire Italy, just to name a shortlist of prestigious style and fashion outlets who’ve covered this rising icon. Born in Italy and surrounded by the fashion world as early as 13, Simonetta Lein has made her mark not only in the glamorous world of beautiful people, walking the runways and gracing the covers and pages of top industry publications but as a giver as well; giving inspiration and opportunity to those less fortunate and to those whose only wish is to give back on a large scale to their communities. She does this via her global charity The WishWall Foundation, a not-for-profit based in Philidelphia aimed at helping young girls and women to learn transferrable skills as well as facilitating community impact wishes from those looking to make a change for the betterment of mankind on a larger scale.

According to the official line on the foundation,

The Wishwall Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization and social community. The Foundation is built on the  “pay it forward” philosophy. Its core principals are to give a voice to the voiceless and to help make meaningful wishes come true. The Wishwall Foundation is multi-faceted. It consists of The Wishwall Online and The Wishwall in Every City, where people can express their wishes and where the Foundation inspires them to help each other and grant those dreams that are more meaningful.

The Wishwall Foundation collaborates with other non-profit groups that promote social integration and the defense of human rights, as well as with companies who wish to sponsor worthy initiatives. The Wishwall Foundation seeks to be a global movement that inspires people and unites humanity through art, fashion, and goodwill.

There is so much to Simonetta Lein that we decided to publish our exclusive interview as an audio feature in its entirety because there is just no way putting it into black and white would have the same impact. Besides, there is already so much written about this fashionista, TV host, best-selling author we should give her the floor for a change!
