JAMIE BAAH-MENSAH: SERGE MEETS

Serge Meets - Jamie Baah-Mensah

How were you scouted?

I was firstly approached on Oxford Street by a model scout from New York who was on holiday in London, but at the time I wasn’t sure if it was something I wanted to pursue. After many people advising me I should go for it, I finally found the courage to start visiting a few agencies, I got signed and it went from there..

Who is your favourite designer?

I like Balmain but it’s a bit loud for a normal day to day. If your stepping out – Issa look!

What do you do when you’re not modelling?

When I’m not modelling I’m casting and if I’m not casting I’m in the gym, and if I’m not in the gym I’m make notes and plans for a future business I plan on launching! Other than that, i’m chilling with friends and going out etc

What is your favourite country to go on holiday?

Somewhere hot with loads of history, buff food, and clear waters

Favourite place in London?

“The Endz” haha – my hometown Chingford in East

Dream brand to collaborate with?

That would be Gucci – I like what they have been doing recently, incorporating models of colours and black musicians as celeb endorsement

Do you have a party tip?

Rinse out the pre-drinks before you get to the party :)

Favourite band/singer?

Hmm at the moment I would say Goldlink – new, upcoming and wavy! UK artist would be Kojo Funds, definitely underrated. My boys a musician @mylesmonologan check out his new song “too much” on his insta link!

We heard there was an issue after the shoot with trying to get a ring off. How long was it on for in the end? How did you get it off?! 

Hahaha yes my fat knuckles wouldn’t allow me to get the ring off! My Nevs fam tried everything – string, water, ice! If you follow me on insta you would of witnessed the struggle. Finally after 5 days I went to the jewellers and they stretched it out for me!

Tell us something you’ve not told in an interview before…

I use to be a presenter for Chemical Magazine interviewing celebs at Sony HQ!

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?

The SDN ‘fearless’ Tee
