‘“An object at rest will continue to be at rest, an object in motion will continue to be in motion” (Newton’s Law of Motion). So being in motion motivates me getting up in the morning’ – Anna.
Who knew our models were so wise and philosophical! Well, you would if you’ve been keeping up with our five-part blog series introducing each model individually. But in case you missed it, here’s a short summary to give you an insight into the lives of Brixton’s next top models.
All of the models from our Brixton skate park shoot come from a really diverse range of nationalities and backgrounds: from Pauline from Sweden, Anna from Russia, and Joris from France and Guadeloupe, to Jordan and Amy representing the UK. They are also a talented bunch and can wow the crowds with their skills in literature, horse riding, music and philosophy. Nevertheless, the one thing they all have in common is their passion for positive change and helping local communities which inspired them to work with Fikay Fashion.
Aspiring models should pay close attention to this next part as our models have revealed the best and worst things about working in the fashion industry. Meeting people and travelling the world was unanimously voted the best aspect of the job. Picture catwalks in Paris, biking along canals in Amsterdam, getting back to nature in Milford Sound, New Zealand… These are all some of the places our models have cited as the coolest travel locations they’ve visited. On the other hand, long tube journeys, endless casting queues and not being able to eat what you want have been uncovered as the worst.
Finally, we’d like to thank the models for their career advice. Pauline had the brilliant idea of encouraging us to collaborate with Adidas or Nike for their focus on a healthy lifestyle, while Anna went for OrganicBurst, an organic superfood company. On the other hand, we’re a little sceptical about Joris’ suggestion to collaborate with McDonalds. But, as they say, never say never!
