When were you scouted and how?
A:
An agency saw my portfolio and asked me to come down to London for an interview.
F: I was scouted at Leeds Fest 2015.
V: In Manchester train station the summer before last.


What interests you about modelling?
A:
Getting to wear clothes by the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Dior, that I would never have been able to afford to wear if I wasn’t doing what I do now.
F: I love seeing how stylist’s put different outfits together that I never would’ve thought of.
V: I’d never really considered it before I got scouted, but the travelling is pretty interesting and sometimes the clothes are cool.


Is there a certain designer you’d like to walk for or had a great time walking for already?
A:
Working with the Hood By Air crew in Paris was an amazing experience. The Christopher Kane team was great to work with as well, and I would love to work with Gucci one day, that’s the dream!
F: I’d love to walk for Y3. I really love the technical look which is trending at the moment.
V: I walked for McQueen in my first season which was a really nice show.


Who is a photographer you’d love to shoot with or already have shot with?
A:
I shot with Colin Dodgson, that was a great experience. Tyrone LeBon is someone I would love to work with in the future.
F: David Sims. I think it’d work well because we’re both from West Yorkshire.
V: Hazel Gaskin was lovely to shoot with for GQ Style.


Aside from modelling, what else do you pursue?
A:
I’m working very slowly with a friend on a magazine, I’m also very slowly learning how to make music again after downloading fruity loops. I’m also very occasionally writing for online publications.
F: I’d love to work in fashion, I’m just not sure how to go about it. Maybe styling.
V: I’m studying philosophy at the University of Manchester.


What are you listening to right now?
A:
Young Thug, lots of Young Thug... and early Outkast.
F: At the moment I’m loving the new Joey Badass single “Rockabye Baby”.
V: “Ballad of Big Nothing” by Elliott Smith.


If you could spend 24 hours with anyone, who would it be and why?
A:
Danny Devito. He’s an enigma. I saw a photo of him one day where he was walking a tiny dog in a dress around New York. That would be my ideal day with my ideal person.
F: My granddad who has just recently passed away. It’d be great to see him one last time.
V: Probably Lemmy from Motorhead, he seemed like he knew how to have a good time.


What inspires you? What gets on your nerves?
A:
People who are themselves and genuine definitely inspire me to be a better person. Selfish people get on my nerves, and I won’t bore you with what else gets on my nerves! 
F: Seeing people do their own thing is great and inspires me to express myself. People who judge other people that are doing their own thing wind me up.
V: My friends. When people stand on the wrong side of the escalator.


Does glam rock interest you at all? If so, why?
A:
Generally no, but the glam rock style I do find interesting. Glam rock was essentially the birth of the rockstar as we know it! 
F: The make-up and outfits interest me. There’s no half way with anything, it’s either all or nothing and that’s what makes the scene so original. 
V: Yeah, I like glam rock music and the aesthetic is really out there which makes it interesting. Plus there’d be no punk without glam.


New York Dolls or Iggy Pop?
A:
Iggy Pop
F: New York Dolls.
V: New York Dolls because they’re less overplayed and they never sold out and did car insurance adverts.


David Bowie or T.Rex?
A:
Marc Bolan seemed like a cool guy, but I have never sat down and listened to T.Rex. Bowie, however, transcended genre and was also big in the film and fashion world, he could do it all.
F: David Bowie.
V: Bowie because he’s Bowie.


If you could change one thing about the current state of the world, what would it be? 
A:
Legalise it globally.
F: Hunger and disease in poorer countries.
V: Stop the growing international trend of right populism.
