What brought you from LA to London, and why?

I fly out to London about once or twice a month for modelling work.

How would you compare London and LA?

I love both cities, however, London is one of my favourite places to visit. I love the day to day life and friends I’ve made out here.

How did you get into Modelling?

One day I woke up and decided I didn’t want to work a job, I asked my friend whose mother was an agent and signed on Sunday, on Monday I walked into Wilhelmina on Monday and signed with them.

Is this something you plan to do alongside your Music Career?

“I feel like music and modeling fit hand in hand, as an artist I have to influence and be in front of the camera. Modeling just makes it all easier.”

Does your music influence your sense of style?

100%, I love Lenny Kravitz, Chris Brown, Gary Clark Jr, Prince. I’ve always felt like a rockstar so I just dress how I feel.

How do you balance music and modelling?

Modelling usually works like a regular job, so after 5 pm it’s all music time.

What is your favourite era in both fashion and music?

I really enjoy 90-2000 music as well as the fashion from that era. It just embodies the soul of my youth. Plus everyone dresses fucking weird now haha!

Who is your style Icon from the last decade and why?

Lenny Kravitz. He is undoubtedly himself, every day, even as fashion trends switch he wears what he wants and cultivates a new lane for himself that people follow as well.

Name a brand that you think everyone should look out for?

I don’t really keep up with brands. They’re just a name to me. I wear what I think looks cool

You’re booked on a last minute job taking you from LA to Europe, name the first 5 things that you would reach for when packing your bag.

Laptop, Nintendo switch, guitar, face moisturizer, phone.

Describe your style in one word.

Jaxon
