UGO: Q&A

N e x t  S t o p 

In the second instalment of LFWM - we caught up with our newest face - the lovely Ugo !

Age: 19 years old

Nationality: French

Hometown: Paris, France 

How were you discovered? I was scouted walking down the Kings Road

Did you ever think you could be a model? 

I never thought about it really. A friend of mine got scouted in Paris one day, and when I followed him to his agency it was the first time that I had approached this environment. I then moved to London for my studies and luckily Nevs scouted me :)

How excited are you about your first season in London? 

I am really excited. I can feel that the agency is really involved with everyone, its going to be intense but fun! 

What makes Ugo tick? 

I was quite interested in fashion before getting scouted, so modelling is a great chance to get closer with many brands. It enables me to meet with people (models, photographers) as well as travelling. Apart from this, I am fond of golf, football and tennis, in which I play at a high competitive level. My other passions are science, mathematics and physics; more particularly as it is what I am studying at university right now

Dream vacation? 

A summer at Honolulu. Surfing and a backpack trip with some friends
