MEET JESSICA

I’ve been doing full time modelling since college, back home in Manila, Philippines. From high fashion to streetwear to commercial, but my love is for music. I used to do a lot of ukulele covers, and last year I started to write more stuff and record with my music producer. If you are interested in alt pop music, you can check me out on Spotify :)
Describe yourself in 3 words
BLESSED
EASY-GOING – basically, don’t know how to say no!
GRATEFUL AF – I got this serious grateful heart, to a point that every morning I thank the sunshine for turning my hallway into gold!
Dream brand to collaborate with?
For my music, Unif. If I keep doing good with my alt pop music, collaborating with them will be fun.
For modelling, Zimmermann! Top dream, I’ve always been a bohemian chic by heart haha!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Life is unpredictable and I always just go with the flow and take my chances. I have a few different plans!
1- I would love to live by the river or a beautiful lake, have my little vegetable garden, a black horse and high speed wifi in my house lol (wifi is life!)
2- I will be taking care of orphan elephants in Kenya
3- I will have a hippie bus so I can drive around Europe or Australia. #vanlife
but either way, I will still be doing music.
Do you have any hobbies?
I love art and love to create. I doodle a lot and take a lot of photos. Also I play, well, used to play the piano and violin back when I was a kid. Now my go to instrument is the ukulele and tiny bit of guitar! Singing relaxes me! And I love travelling!
Favourite emoji?
I have three, dove🕊 dragon🐉 and rose🌹
Favorite place in London?
Brick Lane since day 1 haha! Totally my vibe; the vintage market, the graffiti, the artsy people, and the Indian food – everything I love in one.
Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?
The Vibes waffle sweat and the baby girl bleach tee, both are love at first sight. So its great that I got them both in my closet now!

How were you scouted?

I was playing football back home in Brazil and someone approached me and told me “you are tall and I think you got the look to be a model”. My first thought was that it was a scam and he was just trying to get my money. It turned out that HE REALLY WAS TRYING TO GET MY MONEY! He was trying to earn from shooting my book! But if it weren’t for him, I might not even be modelling right now, because becoming a model was never part of my plan.
What do you do when you’re not modelling?
I love to travel. Back in Asia, I used to visit the beach a lot, just to chill there and enjoying the tropical vibe. Now in London, since the weather is always unpredictable, I do a lot of indoor activities, like visiting museums or Netflix and chill. Haha
Do you have any hidden talents?
Football! Before modelling, my dream was to be a football player. And also I play the drums :)
Favourite emoji?
😈
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself in New York, modelling and owning a streetwear brand!
Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?
I like the Black ‘baby girl’ Waffle T-shirt. If you know me, you will know that I really love black and the cut, the detail and the material are just perfect for me.
Tell us something you’ve not told in an interview before…
I’m really into streetwear and I’m very specific with the fit and the design. I get inspired from some of the high end streetwear brands but still it’s usually hard to find something I really love, so that’s when I figured why not start up my own brand in near future!

We heard that you recently became a dad! Congratulations! What is the first thing you will teach your new daughter?

Thank you very very much!  First of all is giving her all the love I have inside, that is all she needs at the moment. After that, the first thing I will teach her, is to love every living being in the world, to every tree, flower, animal, etc and to be kind to people. I want her to learn to love and respect everyone.

How were you scouted?

One of my best friends in Madrid introduced me to one of his friends in Madrid. He is a model and he proposed that I give it a try and invited me to go to his next test shoot. He told me the three best agencies in Spain to send my pictures to. I did, got signed and everything started!

Favorite place in London?

Holland park is a beautiful place to have a picnic or to meditate.

What do you do when you’re not modeling?

Now that I’m a father, my priority is to be there for my daughter. I also write about life experiences and things that I have learned to help others. I study nutrition and try to do all kind of sports to keep myself healthy and active.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I have always loved to dance. I did ballet when I was a child but fell in love with other sports and stopped dancing. Now every time I go to a concert, club or festival, I feel the pure joy of moving your body freely. I want to dedicate more time to dancing and develop this talent.

Favourite band/singer?

One of the bands I most listen to is Blackstreet. I’ve been listening to Montell Jordan a lot lately too. But I like all kind of music, from Alexander Desplat to Zatox…

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?

The black crown cap. Reminds me of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Tell us something you’ve not told in an interview before…

I would love for people to see time as something cyclical instead of lineal. It makes me sad when people feel bad about their age. Age is just a number! We all live in the same moment of time, either we are 22, 32, 42… so what matters is what you make of your time from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep. For me, everyday is a new opportunity, a new birthday! Every day counts, so it doesn’t matter how old you are. What matters is what you make today and tomorrow will be another birthday, another day to enjoy, seize and live life to the fullest!

How were you scouted?

I was firstly approached on Oxford Street by a model scout from New York who was on holiday in London, but at the time I wasn’t sure if it was something I wanted to pursue. After many people advising me I should go for it, I finally found the courage to start visiting a few agencies, I got signed and it went from there..

Who is your favourite designer

I like Balmain but it’s a bit loud for a normal day to day. If your stepping out – Issa look!

What do you do when you’re not modelling?

When I’m not modelling I’m casting and if I’m not casting I’m in the gym, and if I’m not in the gym I’m make notes and plans for a future business I plan on launching! Other than that, i’m chilling with friends and going out etc

What is your favourite country to go on holiday?

Somewhere hot with loads of history, buff food, and clear waters

Do you have a party tip?

Favourite band/singer?

Hmm at the moment I would say Goldlink – new, upcoming and wavy! UK artist would be Kojo Funds, definitely underrated. My boys a musician @mylesmonologan check out his new song “too much” on his insta link!

We heard there was an issue after the shoot with trying to get a ring off. How long was it on for in the end? How did you get it off?! 

Hahaha yes my fat knuckles wouldn’t allow me to get the ring off! My Nevs fam tried everything – string, water, ice! If you follow me on insta you would of witnessed the struggle. Finally after 5 days I went to the jewellers and they stretched it out for me!

How were you scouted for modelling?

I was walking through London bridge station, just went through the barrier then I felt a tap on my shoulder and I thought he was wanting to squeeze through the barrier with me, but turned out to be John from PRM, he give me his card and said please get in contact, then the rest is history I guess.

Hampstead heath because of the swimming ponds and all the greenery

It’s been great to work with you again!

Likewise

What have you been doing since we last saw you?!

Ah man, working on a Iot of music! I’ve got a new EP coming out very soon.

Dream brand to collaborate with?

I’d probably go with Levi’s, cos my dad would be so gassed, ha! He’s a 501 man til the end.

Who’s your idol?

Hmm, I don’t have an idol. There’s a lot of people that I’ve learnt from and aspire to be similar too though. Jesus, C.S Lewis, Nas, Wiley. The list goes on…

What do you do when you’re not making music?

I like to write, so I’ve been working on some different concepts for writing ideas. I’m into health and fitness, so spend some time doing that. I’ve also been doing quite a lot of stuff in schools around mental health and songwriting.

Yeah, I’m really excited to get my new EP out, which will be in the next couple of months.

It’s gotta be Paul Smith. What a legend.

How long have you been modelling? 

I’ve been modeling for two years now (that’s really weird to put in to writing, the time has completely flown by).

How were you scouted?

I was scouted at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. I was there with my buddy Abdelrahmen Elsergany during my senior year spring break.

We heard you were at university, what are you studying? 

Well I was at University for a year in the States, however I’ve now left that school to pursue the modeling career.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

Well, two years ago I would never have guessed that I would be here, answering these questions and I couldn’t be happier with where I am. So I really have no clue where I’ll be in five years, but I know that I’m someone who won’t pass up an opportunity that comes around. I’ve learned that as long as you commit yourself fully to what you’re doing in the moment, you’ll be very surprised to see where it can take you.

What’s your favourite part of London? 

All the parks. There is an incredible amount of space in the city devoted to green, lush parks that serve as a relaxing ground for many, and workout space for others. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

What would be your dream brand to model for? 

I would love to be a model for Ralph Lauren. They’re so iconic, classic, and have that timeless American young gentleman vibe. Also I would definitely feel accomplished seeing myself on an advert for them.

When you are not modelling or studying, what do you do in your spare time?

You can find me wandering around London for now, as I’m constantly in awe of how amazingly beautiful this city is. I spend a lot of time dreaming about a beach somewhere with Noosa-esque waves. So naturally I am always on surfline.com checking out their new stories and reports from surf spots around the world. Yet again you can find me on a run and workout in Crystal Palace Park.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes collection?

The Navy Brush SDN Long Sleeve for sure. I love the feel of a comfy long sleeve that can still be stylish.

How long have you been modelling? 
I started like 3 years ago, in Spain. A lot of things have happened since then!

How were you scouted? 
I was working in my uncle’s hairdressing salon, where I met Fernando my headbooker from UNO. We were talking and he proposed me doing a test shoot. Fortunately things were good, and now I’m here in London.

We heard you were at university, what are you studying?
 

Yes, I study Communication. It’s not my passion but I think it could be useful in a future. When I was a child I dreamt about working for National Geographic or something similar so this could help me to work for them.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

Hard question haha, I dont know yet. You don’t know what will happen tomorrow. However I just want to travel as much as possible, so if I had to say something I would like to be far away, discovering new places and cultures.

What’s your favourite part of London?
 
Shoreditch. I live there and the neighbourhood is awesome , cool spots, bohemian areas with soul. Canary Wharf is cool, I discovered that place during a shoot. Also Tate Museum, of course.

What would be your dream brand to model for?
 
Yamamoto for sure. Nobody has known how to express and develop something so simple and at the same time so deep like black colour. He mixes street and elegance and his collaborations with Adidas are just incredible. He is the master. If I worked for him, it would be fantastic and unforgettable. I also like Marcelo Burlon , KTZ and OBEY.

When you are not modelling or studying, what do you do in your spare time?
Chilling with friends, drinkings beers, listening to music. I like to play sports such Basketball and Football, and a good book or film is always a great choice. And of course, clubbing.

Favourite piece from the A/W16 collection? 
No Noise Denim Jacket is my favourite . Also any bomber is obligatory in my wardrobe. I like the design of the rings.

It’s been great to work with you again!
What have you been doing since we last saw you?!

Its always a pleasure working with Serge and it was great catching up with my boy Proudlock! Since we last met I’ve been working hard campaign after campaign and finally the work has paid off as I have recently signed with my dream agency.. STORM! 

Dream brand to collaborate with?

That is a hard decision but I would have to say Louis Vuitton. I have loved and worn this brand since I could first afford the LV belts and I just feel expensive when I wear their stuff.

Who’s your model idol?

My model idol is my very good friend Francesco Cuizza. I joined my first agency and at that agency all I would ever hear or see was him. I wanted to be as successful and talked about as him. Finally we met and clicked straight away, our personalities are very big and alike which is why I think we get on so well. He then made a massive move from the small agency we were with and joined Storm. People had their doubts about the move but he persevered and now does 100% better and bigger jobs then ever before. My decision to try and make the move to Storm was largely based on him and his journey to success. He is like my big bro and I have watched him go from great to outstanding. He is my model idol. 

What do you do when you’re not modelling?

When I’m not modelling I like to work out, play football, also spend time with my son and walk my dog, mayyyybe I also like to drive my car all day aimlessly too.. sometimes haha!

Do you have an exciting projects coming up?

Well I have just joined with Storm and that move was exciting in itself, no words need be spoken on Storm and their work rate and if they can take me on then I’m more than confident. However I have many many exciting things coming up.. there may be a few things in the pipeline already 👀 who knows..? Haha

LFW is here, which designer are you most excited to see?

I enjoy meeting all the designer. I’m still learning and meeting as many as I can with each show I walk or attend.

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes AW16 collection?

My favourite Serge piece has got to be the Knit Striped Tracksuit. Definitely the most unique and distinctive tracksuit in my wardrobe.

How did you get into modelling?

I was scouted on the street of shoreditch

Was it always your passion?

To be honest, it was not my passion but I always thought that it would be a fun job to try

What is your dream brand to collaborate with?

Balenciaga, Martin Margiela and Raf Simons


What projects do you have in the pipeline / anything you want to talk about?

I have magazine shoots and some look books coming up. I really liked the clothes that I got to wear so I can’t wait for them come out!

What’s your favourite spot in London?

Shoreditch (East London) is my favorite place. I’ve been living here for three years because it’s always vibrant and has a lot of cool spots

We heard you were stylist? What do prefer, styling or modelling?!

There isn’t one thing that I prefer more than another; they both have special parts that I love. I love to build up the aesthetics of the shoots with garments or even accessories when I am styling, which means I am able to show my creative side. On the other hand, modelling let me concentrate on my expression, such as with gesture and face expression.


Tell us something you’ve never told in an interview!

I am interested in lots of creative jobs such as interior design, film making, etc. I would love to get a chance one day to show my passions with my new coming works.

Was modelling your first role?

 My first modelling role was for iD magazine for the FKA Twiggs story. I had my hair bleached white and got covered in temporary tattoos.

– Except from the gym what else do you do in your spare time?

I run a music festival called Strawberries and Creem based in Cambridge

– Is modelling a full time job for you? If you weren’t modelling what would you be doing?

 I only model part time as organising events is my full time thing.

– How did you get into Modelling? 

I was lucky enough to get picked up as a kid and started modelling from around 11 years old for commercial brands like Littlewoods, Tesco, Asda and some other kids fashion brands. Life then started to get somewhat serious with school and I stopped modelling from 15 – 19 years old. At 19 I got picked up by a boutique London agency and started to work part time as a model. 10 months ago I got scouted to join Nevs and since then I’ve been working full time as a model and I love every moment.

 – If you weren’t Modelling, what do you think you will be doing now?

  I’d like to think I’d be studying to be a Life Coach / Mentor to younger kids and early teens that are having difficulty finding their way in life. No matter what I do my main intention is to inspire all around me to become the best versions of themselves.

 – Do you have any special skills? 

 I do a great chimpanzee impression that only a select few people have had the pleasure of hearing/seeing haha! 

 – What do you get up to when you are not modelling? 

 I like to read motivational books like ‘The Saint The Surfer’ and ‘The CEO’. I also lead a really healthy active lifestyle so I train pretty much everyday and find myself getting lost in nature. My friends call me ‘Nature Boy!’ 

 – 2017 is a new year, what exciting projects have you got in the pipeline? / What is your plan for 2017? 

 I’m currently in Cape Town working for 2 months which is super exciting in itself, its my first solo adventure as a model. I’ve been here a week and have been booked for 2 jobs so things are looking hopeful here. The modelling industry is so hectic you never really know what you’re doing or where your going to be in advance, so all I can really say is watch this space as 2017 is looking very exciting already with some really amazing projects coming my way! 

 – Tell us something you’ve never told anyone in an interview! – 

 Life seems pretty simple. Whatever you put in you get back, do something you enjoy and the rest will follow. 

 Thanks for interviewing me!

How did you get into modelling? It all happened very quickly, I posted a picture on Instagram wearing a septum ring from LAMODA and they reposted the picture and it blew up like crazy, within 2 weeks after that moment my now mother agent (MUTHA) found me also on Instagram and then introduced me to my now agency Supa Models.

Was it always a career ambition? No I never thought of it as an ambition of mine. I saw it as an opportunity that came to me that would allow me to help me support myself and my family a lot more but not a long term career, but maybe who knows now.

What do you think you’d be doing if not modelling? Most likely I would still be doing visual merchandising as I was before.

Dream brand to collaborate with? On a level of making clothes together as a collaboration definitely Adidas, but just working together for modelling I have luckily already done that on more than one occasion.

Who’s your model idol? I don’t think I have a male model idol and I personally try not to idolise people and stay on my own individual path, but for sure my female model idol is Slick Woods, I think the industry needs more people like her.

What do you do when you’re not modelling? Usually I relax because this job does the opposite with non stop traveling, other than that I hang with friends, skateboard, read wisdom books you know just normal stuff.

Favourite piece of the AW16 collection? Loved the black fur fleece that I also wore on the shoot.
