Age: 21 
Birthplace: Wales 
Agency: AMCK Models
Category: Fashion

3 years ago, Asher’s focus was on studying for a degree in Cardiff, growing up playing Rugby in a small coastal town in West Wales.  A-Level results day came and he took a chance on moving to London to study Advertising/Public Relations. Asher would go on to feature in international fashion magazines, walking shows designers such as Astrid Anderson, Sibling, Ada + Nik and then opening the first Moschino SS15 show in London this year.  He is currently represented by AMCK Models London, Joy Models Milan and RED Models NYC. No one can deny Asher is a rising star and this week’s Model Of London!

How were you discovered: It was actually my sister Rachel Anthony who is a stylist (www.rachel-anthony.com). I helped assist a few times, who said i should i try it. I had a test, cut down some mass and was luckily enough to be given an opportunity by AMCK. I have been really fortunate with the support i have had from family and friends.

What has been the highlight of your carrier so far: I was fortunate enough to open the first Moschino show in London for SS15. They (Moschino) spotted me in my friend Pantelis Prodromou's magazine 'Coitus', felt somewhat of a double win for his talent being recognised. My mum even cried.

Whats your dream booking: Vogue Hommes International front cover, surrounded by Victoria’s Secret angels feeding me grapes.

Who's your favourite fashion icon: It has to be the 3 Davids. David Beckham, David Gandy and St David... The patron saint of Wales.

What item of clothing could you not live without: I had this gold kimono tailor made when i went on a holiday to Vietnam, i wear it at pre drinks. It just has really fond memories attached to it.

How do you keep fit: I have played rugby the past 6 years with some of my closest friends, three who event went on to play professionally (2) Ealing Trailfinders and (1) at Bedwas RFC, however with modelling i have had to loose size so i can fit into the clothes. It can be so aggravating as you can be left with this skewed body image. However I'm lucky that i get tips from friends, including one who is a PT (@constandring) i also have @fatsadik to stand next to in pictures to make me look better. I plan on running a half marathon next year as well with pal James.

Whats you favourite food: Carbs.

What do you do for fun: The same as most 21 year olds; being world renowned on FIFA, spending time with friends, sport, cooking and buying things i don't need.

Whats the best thing about being you: Im just lucky with stuff i guess.

If you were an animal what would you be: A seal.

Ellis Cooper: Models of London for KALTBLUT Magazine By Karl Slater


Name: Ellis Cooper 
Age: 22 
Birthplace: Sunderland 
Agency: None 
Category: Lingerie  

Introducing Ellis Cooper, a lingerie model turned actress who writes comics, photographs beautiful women, manipulates knives and can count past 10…. I know, unheard of! 

Having moved to London at 18 she's become a constant in the alternative scene and paved a golden path between sexy and satanic. Gracing the pages of magazines from Playboy to Bizarre it's hard to place this vixen in an exact genre but that in its self puts her in a bracket of her own.

How were you discovered: I wouldn't say so much discovered, more like stumbled upon. I had a pretty fierce selfie game going on, on Facebook and an agent got in touch with me, I was with GIRL Management when I first started out. I owe a lot to their support. 
What has been the highlight of your carrier so far: A highlight was probably realising I'd created a brand, apposed to just being a face. That was pretty jarring and special. 
Whats your dream booking: Oooo, my ultimate life goal is to work with Quentin Tarantino so... definitely that! 
Who's your favourite fashion icon: I love all things 90's inspired, my boyfriends t-shirts and checkered shirts are my ultimate go to. 
What item of clothing could you not live without: My leather jacket, I've had it since I was 15 - it's seen some dreadful sights! A loyal leather jacket should be on everyones 'couldn't live without' list. 
How do you keep fit: I try to go to the gym 5/6 times a week, even if it's just for half an hour. For me its important to keep a clear mind and working out is perfect for that. Plus, it means I can eat a shit tone of cake. 
Whats you favourite food: All things Japanese. 
What do you do for fun: I've recently started photography, so I guess I would say that.
Whats the best thing about being you: The best thing about being me is without a doubt the people around me. I'm surrounded by the most inspiring and talented group of individuals, I'm so very very lucky. 
If you were an animal what would you be: Definitely a monkey. No question.

Name: Munroe Bergdorf / Age: 27 / Birthplace: United Kingdom / Agency: Unsigned / Category : Alternative.


How were you discovered: I don't think there was ever one solid definite point.  But I guess I first started getting bookings in 2009/10. I had just quit my job in fashion PR to DJ full time, so I was out and about a lot more, meeting the right people and being seen in the right places. I guess it all stemmed from that...
What has been the highlight of your career so far:  I couldn't possibly pick just one…  But being shot by David Bailey was an incredible experience, to be shot by someone who's photographed everyone from The Beetles to The Queen to Kate Moss was mind-blowing.
Whats your dream booking: I'm a huge fan of Tim Walker, it's definitely a dream of mine to work with him.
Who's your favourite fashion icon:  Naomi, without a doubt.  There will never be another Ms Campbell.
What item of clothing could you not live without: My favourite pair Marc Jacobs sunglasses.  They're the perfect size, perfect tint and go with any outfit for any occasion.
How do you keep fit: Im pretty terrible with exercising, I'm naturally quite slender and toned, so I don't tend to do a whole lot on the fitness front.  But if I do, I limit it to going for a run or stair climbing.
Whats you favourite food: Caribbean or Sunday Roast, it's a close call.
What do you do for fun: As my main job is DJing, I pretty much spend my life in parties.  So when I'm not doing that I like to go exploring in the countryside, watch movies and eat out.  I spend WAY too much money eating out, I'm a bit of a foodie.
Whats the best thing about being you:  The best thing about being me…  I've learnt to accept myself, to embrace both the good and the bad.
If you were an animal what would you be:   An Elephant.  I'm incredibly loyal, affectionate and I never forget.
