@PHOTOGRAPHYBYMILES

Describe yourself in 3 words…

Creative, Ambitious, Loyal.

Dream brand to work with?

See that changes all the time! But if I could work with any collection in history it would be Yohji Yamamoto 2004 ready to wear!

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?

The silver feather ring!

What do you do when you’re not modelling?

I work within Television and broadcast media, as well as being a student in London studying fashion.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up?

I do! I have a few television shows coming out in the next year, and also working on an EP with some dope London creatives so hopefully, 2019 is set to be an exciting year!

Who’s your idol?

My mother is definitely my icon in every aspect, she raised me how could she not be! But if we are talking fashion idol it would be Lenny Kravitz every day!

 Favourite place in London?

This depends on what sort of vibe my team and I are on but I would say one place I always seem to come back to is Primrose Hill!

You’re quite a famous Vlogger! How did you get into it? 

I’ve been making videos for fun since I was 10 or 11. Never thought much of it, me and my friends just thought it was cool to film ourselves skateboarding, snowboarding, doing flips etc. When I was a sophomore in highschool I started taking it more seriously and considering pursuing it as a career path. When I graduated I knew I didn’t want to go to university because I just never did well in the school system. Ive always been a hands on learner and I can’t sit still for much more than ten minutes at a time so I knew I had to make the video thing work. I just started doing freelance video work and was also working at my fathers restaurant. I was always reaching out to people on social media looking for opportunity and after about a year of graduating highschool I had an opportunity to move to Los Angeles and start making Youtube videos with other creators. One thing led to another, I made some good connections and I’ve been traveling and making videos since then!

What made you want to get into Vlogging?

I’ve always liked making videos and when I started traveling a lot it seemed like the best way to share what I was up to with my audience.

Describe yourself in 3 words…

Creative, Outgoing, Open-Minded (I guess that was 4 words)

Dream brand to work with?

Not sure what brand but it would be insane to collaborate with Travis Scott on a video project. I’m a big fan of his music but his live shows are what are super inspiring to me. His energy on stage and the effort he puts into every show is unreal.

Any party tricks?

A backflip is always my go to! If we’ve had a few drinks I stay away from the flips though and go to the old opening a wine bottle with a shoe👌

Favourite emoji?

I use a lot of different ones for sure. I’m terrible at Instagram captions so I usually just put an emoji as the caption and it’s just whatever I’m feeling that day, you know? But if I had to only use one for the rest of my life I’d have to go with the black heart. All love on this side! But the red one feels a little too emotional, the black one is a good balance of showing love without anyone feeling weird haha.🖤

Life motto?

I couldn’t pick one motto that I live by, there’s a lot of little mottos that I try to remind my self of every morning. But most of them fall under the concept of being grateful to be alive, to be yourself unapologetically, be good to others and spread good energy, and try and leave some kind of impact on the world so your existence means something after you’re gone. “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity” – Horace Mann. I don’t even know who that guy is but I think that’s a pretty good way of thinking. No matter what religion or beliefs you have, all we know is this life and we know that it ends. So I believe that if you haven’t left something for the world/humanity after you’ve passed in any form or size then you’ve done an injustice. You don’t have to be the next Martin Luther King or Mozart, but aim to leave some kind of mark. Yo, that got deep.

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

I low-key like chick flicks.

Favourite piece of the Serge Collection?

Yoooo, thats hard! Probably the silver dragon bracelet! But the silver skeleton hands ring, silver eagle ring and the silver carpe diem ring from the new sterling collection are crazyyy also! Silver jewellery is my thing.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up?

For sure! Me and my best friend Rob are in the beginning stages of creating a street wear fashion brand. I guess i’m “known” for making videos and taking cool photos but I don’t look at my self as a videographer. I’m a creative, which has no limits. I want to create art in every form. Clothing, Video, Music, Photo, Etc. So were super excited to get the clothing started and see where it goes!

Wellness, Loving, Grateful.
Favourite place in London?

Where I grew up; Camden!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Being a better version of myself. Doing more things I love in many, many different ways.
Favourite shoot you’ve done?
My first shoot, because it is how it all began. It was the Gucci Pre-Fall Campaign in 2017. I met some amazing models who I have developed great relationships with. That is how I got signed to my Mother Agency also.
Do you have any exciting projects coming up?
Well, I just did this shoot for Serge so that is exciting! I’ve got a Footlocker campaign coming out soon. The rest you can wait and see!
What advice would you give your 16-year-old self?
You got everything in place. Everything is divine. Maybe invest in Apple & Cryptocurrency.
What does Fashion mean to you?
A physical expression of non-physical feelings that are omitted through the material, colours, the model’s expression, or the set. Speaking and interpreting the Designer’s vision and letting the audience interpret that in unique ways. Expressing yourself, that is the main thing that is my understanding of it.

My favourite thing about modelling is how unpredictable it is. Waiting on a basketball campaign confirmation, which should be good fun!

Favourite place in London?

Probably around Camden and Islington, I have some good memories of being around there while growing up.

Dream brand to collaborate with?

My dream brand to collab with would probably be Givenchy or Calvin Klein as they’re designers that tend to use more muscular models than most of the fashion industry.

Who’s your idol?

My idol is jesus, cool guy, other than that, Mr T was a big black guy that was socially aware, defied stereotypes and avoided controversy, while still being an iconic public figure and serving in his country’s military.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I can just about dunk a basketball on a good day.

😤 because if you were really in a situation that made you that angry you would never use the emoji.

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?

The serge denimes jewellery and particularly the rings are my favourite part of the collection

Favourite place in London?

Since I’m fairly new in UK and especially London, I haven’t had that much time yet to go sight seeing. But I must say that just traveling around with the underground connection and going direct from the edge of the city till then some minutes late walking up true the middle of Oxford Circus, is very humbling. But then again I guess it depends on witch mood you are in. I went to Hyde Park the other day and enjoyed the sun :)

 

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Dream brand to collaborate with?

Would love to work with Versace 

 

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?

That’s a hard one.. Honestly really like all of it. But if I have to pick I might go with the ‘breathe’ tee or some of the jewelry 

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years

5 years from now I’m hopefully still able to travel around and experience different parts of the world. But besides that just being with family and loved ones :)

Favourite shoot you’ve done?

Do you have any hidden talents?

The grip of my big toe & second toe’s pinch strength can make it to the Guinness book of records

Who is your favourite designer?

Tbh I’m really feeling modern fashion, it’s breaking boundaries in the sense that high street brands are collabing with high fashion. Virgil Abloh is LV’s creative, that’s huge man. Collabs with Kanye & Adidas etc
