With our next set of coverage now live and happening over on Instagram @nevsmodels (go check it!) we stopped for a quick chat with our New Face; the skateboarding, music making babe that is, Griffin Reed

How were you discovered?

I was helping with a small tour, we stayed a few extra days to party in LA. A photographer convinced me to shoot; with the promise of a burrito when we were finished…

So how does it feel to be a part of the Nevs family now? 

It's great! It really does feel like a family

How are you enjoying London so far? 

I've been here for a week and came here not really knowing anyone, so still building a group of friends. The city itself is beautiful, with a special sort of energy around it. Though it's always shocking how spread out everything is

What makes Griffin tick?

I write a lot of poetry - though it's not very good, I skateboard quite a bit (getting the weirdest looks whilst doing so through London) but music is my greatest love - constantly playing as long as I'm awake

My dog Mikey, he is a Wolf-German Shepherd Hybrid

Favourite Designer? 

Vivienne Westwood and Valentino

Couldn’t live without? 

Music

Currently on your playlist? 

Free Throw, Title Fight, Foxing, Old Gray

What makes you smile? 

The little things in life, reminding myself of where I have come from, being grateful for the food in my stomach, roof over my head, and the friends, family and co-workers (agencies, clients) that care for me 

Most recent purchase? 

Pack of Marlboro Red cigarettes

Fave movie of all time? 

Star Wars Original Trilogy

Highlight of your career so far? 

Walking Vivienne Westwood, and the Vans campaign

Can you sum yourself up in three words? 

Strange, happy and shy

Biggest fear?  

Letting my family down

Obsessed with right now? 

Right now - not getting lost!

Whats your secret to a happy life? 

Objectively looking at all the positives

Your mantra is? 

"Shit will buff out"

What do you think is the key to a good work / life balance?  

Fully enjoying what you do, as well as being up for anything!

What does the rest of 2016 hold for you - anything exciting in the pipeline? 

What's exciting is that I don't know! A week ago I was in another country, a year ago I was living across the world

 

Love you guys! (We love you too Griffin - even more than we thought!)
