Model Moments

Sound bites from models backstage at GILES A/W 14

MALAIKA “This is my second season walking for GILES. It feels amazing that such a huge designer wants me to be part of his show. His collections are always unique and the performance of the band tonight really set the mood for us models to walk to. I’m wearing a lovely kingfisher dress and a cute pair of shoes. Giles, can I keep them?”

LENNY “This is only my second season at LFW and my first walking for GILES. He is a nice man who you can have some good banter with! Tonight we’re just wearing one outfit each and there’s no high heels so I’m not worried.”

BINX “It’s always fun to work with GILES. He’s nice, it’s a good venue and I’m wearing great clothes. It’s the complete package, really. I closed the show last season. This time I’m wearing an orange top, leather trousers and big boots. This hairnet is really beginning to itch though. Can I take it off?”

MAGDALENA “I’m so excited to be walking for Giles. He and Katie (Grand) always choose interesting people to walk - not just models - they like to mix it up.”
