Chen Xue Storm Management (London)

What did you bring to the shoot?
I’ve brought an MM6 black bucket bag and a Vivienne Westwood leather handbag. I like them because they look different to the other bags I have. Also, they don’t look too girly to me.

The worst fashion decision you’ve ever made?
In high school, I cut myself a massive fringe which looked horrible.

What is a fashion trend you hope to never see again?
I’d have to say that each successful brand has “the most popular item” I see many people just buy all of these popular items and wear all of them together. I’m not sure if I can say this is a fashion trend but it definitely doesn’t look good to me.

How would your family and/or friends describe your personal style?
For my daily style, my friends always say that I’m boyish and casual. But my mom says my style is unnecessary.

What is a fashion trend you hope makes a comeback?
I like the makeup trends from the 60’s, where people wear heavy eye makeup daily. I like how they feel so confident about themselves.


Sonny Hall TESS Management (London)

What did you bring to the shoot?
Just some easy clothes to wear in this blistering heat. Some Fred Perry polos and some vests. One of the vests is very special to me, as my dear friend Iris made it for me before I went to Thailand for a long time. It has an embroidered sun on the front, and on the back an embroidered angel holding a rose.

What is a fashion trend you hope makes a comeback?
Victorian clothes, chimney sweepers etc. If only!!!

How would your family and/or friends describe your personal style?
Skeeno, messy, English, tattered

What is one product or brand you’ll always recommend?
Some old sturdy Vivienne.


Georgia Palmer Storm Management (London)

What did you bring to the shoot?
My favourite things are actually my bed and my car but of course, I couldn’t bring them so I brought my PS4 controller because I am a bit of a gamer girl. I have also worn my new rocks which are my favourite boots at the moment. I’m always wearing my mum’s ring on my right hand because “mum’s always right”, and finally my colour liquid eyeliner, as I always draw dots on under my eyes because I feel it’s cool and a bit weird and different.

What is one product or brand you’ll always recommend?
For curly girls, I always recommend Cantu Curling Cream no matter what skin colour.

What is a fashion trend you hope to never see again?
I never hope to see the 2000’s in general. And Toms.

What is the best fashion/beauty tip or trick you know?
Best beauty tip is DRINK WATER.


Emma Fotherby TESS Management (London)

What did you bring to the shoot?
My pink and white flared trousers that my auntie gave me. They’re from the 70’s and I just love the style.

What is a look or style you wish you could pull off?
Suits, especially patterned ones.

What is the best fashion/beauty tip or trick you know?
If you mess up your eye makeup just cover it up with glitter.

What is the worst fashion decision you’ve ever made?
When I was younger I wore hot pink knee-length shorts and knee high black and white stripy socks.

  • I am impressed with Emma Fotherby’s look. She wears it well.

  • Ive got the future at my finger tips.
