Alexander Nicholas Beck, Model with Unsigned Management
Where did you grow up? I grew up quite near to Stansted Airport in the countryside. I'm so grateful to have had that experience. Lots of space and clean air - it's the perfect way to have a childhood.
How long have you been modelling for? It's been about four and a half years now but I was scouted about five years ago. I remember it quite clearly. This guy came up to me in a Post Office saying "I love your face!". I didn't believe him at first. That was in August and then by January I was walking in shows.
Do you have a highlight of the past few seasons? I loved the Belstaff presentation last season, it's the best show I've ever done. We sat around drinking pints of Guiness and they served up bacon sarnies! Perfect!
What's your average show season day like? Get up, eat, skate, casting, eat, casting, home, sleep.
I see you've got a handsome longboard with you. Is that your preferred method of transport? Definitely! I ride a Bustin Sportster Mini. It's got bone ceramic bearing and is quick, easy and low to the ground. I've got my eye on a new board though. It's electric and has a motor in each wheel so can go up to twenty-odd miles per hour. In built breaking and everything. For London, it'll be perfect.
What's your favourite city during the fashion week cycle? It was Paris at first, when I started modelling back in the day. Now I think Milan actually. It's a lot smaller, the castings aren't too far apart and the food is incredible. Fresh pasta and pizza everywhere so very convenient. Everyone in fashion speaks English too which makes life really simple wherever you go.
Leave us with some words of wisdom. Shoulders back, tits out!
