MODEL: KRASIMIR TSANKOV 
PHOTOGRAPHER: HANNAH MILES

How did you get into the modelling industry?

Becoming a model was really pure chance, a friend of mine introduced me to an agency and I thought why not as nothing to lose and they really loved me! Thanks to PRM, I am where I am now.

Is modelling a full time gig for you?

Modelling takes up most of my time and energy, but I still have some other part time work!

What is your dream brand/company to model for?

I am sure many models would say Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabbana, Versace etc. and I would be lying if I don’t say the same.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up?

Currently I have a lot of commercial work in London, but I am looking forward to some future project in New York or LA, that is always been one of my goals!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

From a successful modelling career in 5 years time I would see myself developing my own clothing brand and growing my experience within acting, which is another of my passions.

So how did the transition from football to modelling happen?

Football in Bulgaria is a tough challenge, but I wanted something even tougher. That is why I moved to London initially to develop my football career but I ended up becoming a model. The skills I learnt playing football have helped me in my transition of becoming a focused, determined, energetic and enthusiastic model!

What is your favourite item from the AW16 collection?

My favourite item is The No Noise Woollen Tracksuit. The unique design and comfortable fit make this my number one choice!

You’re a keen dancer- has this been the case from a young age?
Yes, I grew up in a family that listens to all different types of music which encouraged me to dance from a young age, but I started taking dance serious around the age of 12 onwards. Me and my friends would dance on the streets with a boombox where I grew up in Fishponds, (Bristol) simply training, exchanging and having fun together. From then to now I have put my all into my journey from training and battling to performing and teaching worldwide. Its truly amazing to see the progression within my journey and I am very grateful and humbled.

Dancing and modelling are pretty full on, how do you like to relax?

When I’m relaxing I tend to be searching for music online that inspire me to move within dance for the next time I train/perform. Also like to relax by playing consoles, drawing and sleeping.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up? 
Yes I have a few exciting projects coming up but the most exciting one for myself is my first ever dance video which I’m collaborating with a friend called Kelvin to create something abnormally different through movement and visuals. The video will be based around “ArtWithin” which is the name I give my movement/vision into life and dance. Make sure to keep an eye out for it!!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Haha thats a hard question! Hmmm… Personally I take everyday as it comes but I 100% want to push even further in dancing and modelling.
I would like to have my own arts company called “ArtWithin” which perform crafts in a different unusual light worldwide that others may not be exposed to. As my movement/vision has a difference in the dance scene I want this to be fully exposed to inspire others.

Whats your favourite item from the Serge AW16 collection? 
My favourite Serge Denimes item from the AW16 has to be the No Noise Shawlack set!

What kick started your Tattoo addiction?
Like they say, once you get one your more than likely going to carry on getting tattooed. That’s kinda what happened and now look at me.

Tell us an interesting story about one of your tattoos.
I have so many interesting stories to my tattoos. Anything from turning up to day sittings straight from the club to covering an ex girlfriends name with a full ass piece. Take your pick, haha.

How did you get into modelling?
I kind of fell into the modelling game, it started with a banter conversation with one of my favourite photographers on twitter then a couple of weeks later I was stood practically naked in his studio. From then onwards it just blew up for me.

How do you juggle your job with modelling?
It’s hard work, I mean sometimes I feel like I’m running two full time jobs at once, with numerous amounts of travelling & spending half of my life in hotels but surely that’s part of the fun, right?!

Whats the weirdest hair cut you’ve ever given?
I do quite a few crazy designs for people but once i got asked to shave a cannabis leaf in to the back of some chicks hair, I was like ok cool let’s do it.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
Yeah, I got some pretty dope music videos coming up and I’m on set for some killer projects but I’m gunna have to keep that shit exclusive.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
5 years. I can’t predict where i’l be next year, I live my life so spontaneously, the only thing I plan is to be successful in both the barbering and modelling. Let’s just see what happens with the rest. As a wise friend told me, “Make paper, bounce”, that’s kinda what I’m following.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes SS16 collection?
Favourite piece(s) – that’s gotta be the red So Serge short sleeve hoodie & short combo. Such a hard outfit!

Model: Brandon Williams
Photographer: Kim Jobson 

How did you get into modelling?
I got into my modelling by my father. He always said Brandon you should model. I actually look a lot like him.

Is full time modelling your main job?
No it’s not currently I’m a personal trainer in Bermondsey. Shout out Bermondsey! I want to eventually be be a full time model. Modelling is becoming a passion for sure.

What’s the best thing about modelling?
The best thing about modelling is the behind the scenes work and outcome of pictures. I like meeting the people that create the brands that people love and buy.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
I don’t have any new projects coming. But I feel like the universe is going to bring me something crazy.

What’s your favourite spot in London?
That’s the thing about London that I hate. There’s too many places to love. Right now I really love my south like Clapham and Brixton. But I also love Shoreditch.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Oh hard question. In 5 years, I see myself travelling the world modelling and working on giving back to the inner city youths in America and in the U.K.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes SS16 collection?
I loved the No Noise Natural Shawlack sweats combo. My arms stays warms and my legs got cooler haha

HANNAHMILES_SERGEDENIMES-2868

Model: Sammy Sosa
Photographer: Hannah Miles

How did you get into modelling?
You’d have to go all the way back to when I was a youngster and did some work for the Arsenal FC catalogue! I’ve been a huge fan from birth so I’d have to consider that some of my proudest work to date!

Is full time modelling your main job?
No modeling isn’t a full time profession for me at the moment.  I’ve done bits and pieces over the years and I do really enjoy the process so would love to do more – if anyone out there wants to take me on full time feel free to hit me up! I actually work in the marketing industry and also put on events as a part of ‘The Pipe Dreamers’ – a creative collective made up of my brother and I.  We have a bi-monthly night at the moment called ILLICIT that takes place in Miranda at Ace Hotel, Shoreditch – look us up!

What’s the best thing about modelling?
Getting the opportunity to work with cool people for sure is the best part of modelling. I have an interest in all areas of shooting too, right the way through from site recces to the camera work itself – I’m a budding photographer on the side so it helps to have some knowledge from the other side of the lens – check out my stuff on instagram @snappedbysosa

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
I’d love to say yes but as I said it’s not a full time deal for me (right now). A few bits and pieces here and there but nothing huge. I really love doing it though so fingers crossed some more work comes my way in the near future.

Favourite spot in London?
I’m going to have to say Camden, that’s where I grew up. You won’t find a more vibrant and multi-cultural spot in the capital. On a hot summers day the place is literally buzzing – no better place to be.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I’m hoping that The Pipe Dreamers goes from strength to strength and we continue to build our brand into a house hold name, firstly in London and then moving to other territories ideally. Baby steps right now but the ambition is there to grow it into something significant.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes SS16 collection?
I really love the No Noise pieces for sure. The matching top and shorts in the natural colour is a winner for me.

Model: Oliver Wheeler
Photographer: Karl Andrew

How did you get into modelling?
I was 19 and I was scouted on the tube!! I went and had a meeting and had Polaroids taken and the agency set up a few test shoots with some photographers. I look back at those images and it scares me to see how young I really was. You learn so much along the way!

What advice would you give an aspiring model?
Prepare yourself for rejection with no explanation – that’s the hardest part that took me awhile to get used too. You must be thick skinned, it is easy to let it affect you negatively because we put ourself in vulnerable positions. Be confident with who you are and what you look like, and trust what you know you are potentionaly right or wrong for. I recommend going to walk-ins at agencies, they receive hundreds of applications online everyday. Always be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be.

What’s the best thing about your job?
Every day is a different day and It’s a very satisfying process. This job never gets boring, I sometimes get to travel too. I meet somebody new everyday and creative people are usually very interesting and good fun.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
You never know what’s coming your way, so who knows… !! I’m a dancer as well so when I’m not modelling, I’m usually dancing around like a mad man. I’ve recently started an acting course so I’m intrigued to see how that goes.. I like to always be challenging myself.

Who’s your favorite designer at the moment?
I’m not they fussy type. I go for whatever catches my eye, I got some nice bits from Y.M.C recently. I love Reiss and H&M on the high-street. I’m also in a vintage store most of them time looking for anything plain and oversized.

Favourite spot in London?
I am so lucky live in Greenwich (Team South London!!) Greenwich is beautiful with a huge park and an incredible food market and little coffee places – Check it out! It’s great to have that outer village feel but have central London so close.

If you weren’t modelling what would you be doing instead?
What i’ve always been very thankful for is that since I can remember I wanted to move to London and become a dancer and I did it and had some incredible experiences. So I can’t imagine doing anything else. Although, I put on a good party.. so maybe I’d be in charge at doing that in some way?!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I’m drawn to the U.S, I’d like to see more of it. I’m going to focus more of my time on acting and by doing so If I get to see more places in 5 years time I’d be very happy with that. Hollywood here I am come.. ;) !!
Ultimately, where ever I am or what ever I am doing I hope to be happy.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes SS16 collection?
I’m a big fan of the collection. I really enjoy the two-piece hoodie shorts combo – stylish and comfortable – WANT! Thumbs up from me.
