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!
