Anti-Agency is the coolest street cast collective in town. From Marc by Marc Jacobs to Vivienne Westwood, their blue-haired beauts, kiss-curled gals and green-eyed boys have taken the current alternative model sensation by storm. We shot some of the models who are too cool to be models...

Where are you from? What’s it like there?
I’m from London, but my Dad’s from the Philippines and my Mum’s from Hungary. So I take little different things from their cultures. London is really multi-cultural, so you can learn a lot from the variety of people who live here.

What do you do?
I do music, I rap and produce - I’m in a collective called Spaceage.

How do you define style?
Style is like an expression of your personality. It defines who you are externally, it goes deeper than fashion alone.

What do you do for fun?
Taking life as it comes, that’s fun in itself.

Are you in love?
I think so, but I may be wrong.

How would your friends describe you?
Quiet, but once I come out of my shell then sometimes I’m quite funny. Talented.

How were you discovered?
My friends kept telling me I should model. My girlfriend sent pictures to Anti-Agency.

What makes an anti-model different?
Anti care about you as a person, you’re more than just a model. It’s like a chicken, if they’re raised in the right conditions they taste good.

What’s your favourite song at the moment?
Little Simz - Stay

What are your plans this summer?
To do more shoots and finish the music project I'm working on.

What’s the best party you’ve been to?
I can’t remember.
