MODEL MUGSHOT: JED TEXAS

Jed Texas from Elite Models is a favorite amongst the London designers and magazines posing for the likes of 7th Man. He dropped into our office for a chat.



I was discovered:

At the end of last year when I was drinking in Hampstead with my friends. Ian Cole approached me and we did some test shots then he took me into Elite.

Before modelling I was:

A regular teenager just out of school, hanging out with my mates. I didn’t have anything in mind job wise.

When I’m not modelling:
I’m always out, partying and chilling with my friends.

Fashion Week shows I walked in last season:

Tween and KTZ at London Fashion Week. I get a bit nervous before a show but as soon as I’ve walked I want to go back out there! I did the Milan and Paris shows a few weeks ago, which was great but hectic as I had to go back and forth because I was also doing the Vivienne Westwood underwear campaign. I love traveling and would really like to go to New York and Tokyo.

Photographer I would like to work with:

I wanted to work with Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, which I got to do recently. I also had a big shoot with them, which was really cool. It was the best shoot ever, so slick and crazy! I would also like to work with Mario Testino.

My favourite items of clothing are:

Trainers and hats. I love my Creative Recreation Milano high tops.

Best fashion moment so far:

Shooting with Mert & Marcus, walking for Prada and doing the Aqua Couture shoot because I got to sit in a bathtub with three girls all day!
