Question 1: Do you see yourself represented as a young black male in the modelling industry ? Answer: There aren't that many black male models in the industry that I can say 'I identify with"  I initially didn't think I was represented because I haven't been signed to an agency, therefore, I'm not a professional. However, the comments and praise I have got from those who have been watching me, explained that being signed doesn't define being a professional.

The Polish label has now opened in the center of London alongside other fashion-forward high-street brands- Topshop, River Island, Berska and others. This new store aims to become one of the top five retailers in the world and stabilize its presence all around Europe. What can we expect? Like H&M and Zara, the store offers womenswear, menswear and kidswear. Although it is not as 'trend-led' as some of its high street rivals, the prices are definitely more affordable which the customers seem to love.
