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?
I’m from Amsterdam. It’s really tine in camprison to London so it kind of feels like a village or family. But because everybody knows everybody, after a while it gets difficult to find things which are new and fresh. London provides a good balance.

What do you do?
I'm a photographer

What are you wearing head to toe?
A vintage cheerleader outfit

How do you define style?
I like well-fitted sportswear. Either really well-fitted, or something I feel very comfortable in. I shop at JD Sports and Sportsdirect.

What do you do for fun?
I like to see the people I love.

Are you in love?
No, I’m not.

How would your friends describe you?
Very dedicated, determined

How were you discovered?
On the street.

What makes an anti-model different?
A particular kind of casting. One specific kind of person. A type-cast rather than someone who is more versatile.

What's your favourite song at the moment?
ASAP Mob - Xscape

What’s are your plans this summer?
Going back and forth to Amsterdam. Working a lot. Hoping to find a week where I can lay flat on an island and not do anything.

What’s the best party you’ve ever been to?
In New York, in a club where there were plastic Britney Spears-style anacondas. Deifnitely the most interesting party I’ve ever been to.
