HARVY JAMES : Models of London for KALTBLUT Magazine By Karl Slater







Name: Harvey James / Age: 20 / Birthplace: Banbury, Oxfordshire, UK / Agency: AMCK Models / Category : Fashion  

How were you discovered: It was my last day on my round trip of America and I was jet-skiing off the coast of Miami. I noticed a toddler bobbing up and down in the water a short distance away crying in desperation and then glanced across to the beach where a mother was returning her cries, and pleading for help. In a moment of heroism i swooped up the toddler and sped back to the coast. It was at this point that my booker Patrick caught a glance of my chiseled chin in the reflection of the crystal clear Miami water. The rest is history as they say.
What has been the high light to you career so far: Prada show. The best way to make money. By far.
Whats your dream booking: Fragrance shoot in the Bahamas. I'm not fussy about who for, so don't hold back the offers guys!
Who's your favourite fashion icon:  David Gandy, that guy is a suave mother fucker.
What item of clothing could you not live without: My boxers.
How do you keep fit: I try to run as much as possible and do sit ups now and then. But it mainly consists of moving my hand from the table to my mouth.
Whats you favourite food: Love a good seafood linguine.
What do you do for fun: Play guitar, get drunk, sing and read. In that order.
Whats the best thing about being you: Getting to be with me all the time.
If you were an animal what would you be: Bambi?!

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.
