North London boy Sam Lawson from Select came by for a quick Q&A
I was discovered:
When a photographer came into my work and asked if I wanted to do some test shots. I didn’t do much with it at first but then decided to look up a modelling agency and see what happens.
Before modelling I was:
Doing amateur boxing, at college studying Sports Science and working part time in retail.
When I’m not modelling:
Boxing and I like a little bit of shopping
Fashion Week shows I walked in last season:
I only do editorial and campaigns because of my height
Photographer I would like to work with:
Alasdair McLellan is the photographer that discovered me and I’ve worked with him loads, which I really enjoy.
My favourite items of clothing are:
Jackets and Stone Island clothing
I haven’t counted how many tattoos I have (counts)…six. I’m addicted, I will definitely be covered in them! I keep them old-skool, my dad also has swallows and a panther.
My model life so far:
As long as the people I’m working with are fun I don’t mind what I do. I take everyday as it comes.
Best fashion moment so far:
The Merc clothing campaign I did on the Isle of Wight was funny. It was nice to shoot for four hours then spend time on the beach.
