Childhood and youth

The future model was born in Budapest, in an ordinary Hungarian family. Parents, Bence and Agnes Palvin, were in the shoe business and dreamed that Barbara and her older sister Anita would continue the family business when they grew up.

Barbara grew up as a real tomboy, she loved to play football with the boys and climb trees. She studied well at school, loved to read and “swallowed” books one after another. In her free time, the girl liked to watch on TV slender long-legged models proudly pacing the catwalk in beautiful outfits. True, she herself did not even think about a fashion career and dreamed of becoming a lawyer.

The result exceeded all expectations, and Barbara was immediately offered a long-term contract. At the family council, it was decided to let the girl go “free swimming”, however, under the control of her mother, who for five whole years moved away from the family business in order to be close to her youngest daughter. Balazheli also did not leave his ward and became the personal manager of Miss Palvin.
