How did you get started? Tell us about your first job:

While I was at a festival in Finsbury Park and Patrick from AMCK scouted me.

What lifestyle changes have you made since you started modelling?

Going to the gym, looking after myself more and getting haircuts.

What excites you the most, runway or editorial?:

Definitely editorial, just enjoy it more.

What was the most interesting outfit you have worn thus far in your career?

I don’t have an outfit, but I once had to have glue all around my face, all my ears, in my hair – that’s probably the most interesting.

What designers would you most like to work for if you haven’t already?

If I’d had to choose – it’s got to be Louis Vuitton or Gucci

What has been your favourite moment so far in your career? 

Probable going to Camden to a shoot for a magazine called Season Zine.

If you weren’t modelling, what would you do?

I’d probably try to go for a graphic design or web-design. Something to do with computers and creativity really.

Would you have any tips for newcomers in industry?

They should take the industry seriously and allow themselves a lot of time to travel to different places. You just have to be ready for anything

Describe the industry in three words:

Time-consuming, fun and creative

How did you get started? Tell us about your first job:

When I was at uni I needed a part time job and fell into modeling, which turned full-time gig.

What lifestyle changes have you made since you started modelling?

I’ve definitely become more open-minded, I travel so much and I meet such a breadth of people and I’m so humbled because of that. All of this makes me really work harder.

What excites you the most, runway or editorial?

Runway, but I guess I have to say editorial.

What was the most interesting outfit you have worn thus far in your career?

Ok, so I had McDonald chips put on top of me so it acted like a top, and was very interesting, albeit hot!

What designers would you most like to work for if you haven’t already?

Jeremy Scott is my inspiration – I love his work, I’ve done my essay based on him. He is super-talented.

What has been your favourite moment so far in your career?

It was actually my first ever job, I took part in the United Colors of Benetton Campaign, and I met an older lady. Before that moment I would never have thought to have a conversation with someone out of my age group, however we had so much to offer one another – it was interesting to see how people could educate you on so many levels.

If you weren’t modelling, what would you do?

I love to paint and I love designing, I customise and design clothes and bags, I do this as well as modelling. So if I quit modeling, I would focus on that.

Would you have any tips for new comers in industry?

Wow, is so easy to feel differently about yourself, but you need to realise that it’s not a personal thing – its literally just business. Being a model is all about the energy you come with. Always stay true to yourself; there is always a place for you.

Describe the industry in three words:

Inspiring, unpredictable and savage
