Behind the Scenes: AW15 SHOW SEASON (HENRY ASHTON Q+A)

We're mid-way through the castings for the London Mens Collections and it's all going off! Boys are here, there and everywhere and with London being notorious for showcasing new faces, it's all about the homegrown talent here on our turf.

Not only has the Nevs mens division got an AH-MAY-ZING show package this season, there's also got a plethora of new faces who have already burst on the scene showcasing in the likes of the current Topman Campaign.

As an insight into the mind and life of these newbies ready to go head first into their first show season, we've done a little Q+A to shed some light on what goes on behind the scenes of being a model!
