What’s your first fashion-related memory? 
My first memory related to fashion is probably the first time I went to Milan a month after my agent scouted me in Bordeaux. I went there, and it was a crazy experience for me: everything looked so big and cool, I realised then how lucky I am to be a model.
Can you tell us what you feel like when you’re posing in front of the camera?
The feeling I get when I’m posing is more of a mood, I try to imagine myself in the lens of the camera and figure out what pose can fit well with my look.

Who was your teenage crush?
The only crush I can remember is Gigi Hadid. I saw her in New York staring in a Tommy Hilfiger campaign, and I couldn’t help but stare at the picture and think she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.
Can you give us a piece of advice on how to avoid a fashion faux pas?
eah definitely, I have some advice to give. For example, don’t wear more than three colours, or try to play as much as possible with shapes. Although, fashion doesn’t have any rules nowadays. So, just try to be creative and feel good in the clothes you wear. Even if some people don’t like it, just wear what you feel like.

How do you celebrate your birthday
 I wanted.I’m not a huge fan of big parties, but my last birthday party was on the top of a building in Seoul with a friend of mine. We just talked about life until 6:00AM, and I really enjoyed myself.
What’s your least favourite food?
The food I can’t stand to eat is Brussels sprouts, even just the smell makes me feel sick. That’s the first one that comes to my mind, but I’m really difficult with food, so the list is quite long actually.

Who, or what, do you thing of before going to sleep?
The person who helps me fall asleep is my girlfriend. I just think of having a nice day out with her.

What’s your favourite song?
My favourite song of all time is: ‘Where Is My Mind?’ by The Pixies. It always puts me in a good mood!
