A Day In The Life Of A Model
Riddle takes a look behind the scenes at what it takes to create the perfect Blue Steel look by following model Francesco Cuizza around London Collections: Men1. Is this your first LCM? If not, how many LCM have you been in?
Autumn/ Winter16 is my second London Collections: Men. This LC:M will be the second time I’ve walked for Astrid Anderson, Oliver Spencer and Maharishi (on day2 of LC:M- ed). It’s amazing and I’m very proud to be asked back to walk for these brands after Spring/ Summer 16.
2. What was your favourite show and why?
I’ve been with them before, so there’s already a working relationship and they’re also my friends. We know and respect each other like a big family. The designers are all different, with different ideas and characteristics which is reflected in their collections. I love all of them.
3. Describe your day- what do you do as part of a show?
We always have to arrive a few hours before the show starts as there’s always a lot of work to be done and each team such as the make up, hair, the dressers, have to check everything is perfect for the models to be in position, on time for the catwalk.
4. Do you have any lucky charms/ routine before a show?
What do I do before each show? I just enjoy being where I am because the atmosphere is always amazing! I think it’s probably the best part of the entire fashion world.
5. What’s your favourite part of a show?
My favorite part of the show is when I’m in the queue and ready to go. The adrenaline rush is massive and exciting. And then, once I start walking, everything becomes zen and chilled. It’s like walking around in a comfy zone because I know exactly what I have to do.
6. What do you think about when you’re walking down the runway?
When I walk in don’t think (ahahahah) but if I have to think about something, I think about my walk and my posture. These two are the most important elements for your catwalk.
