N e x t  S t o p

In the second instalment of LFW - we caught up with our newest face, Nevs babe Yoshi!

Age: 20

Nationality: British

Hometown: South London / Kent

How were you discovered? Walked into Nevs October 2016

How is 2017 shaping up for you so far?

2017 has been amazing, without sounding cliché. Super excited about things to come and becoming a better version of myself, word to the talented Che Lingo

How excited are you about your first season in London, and officially being part of the Nevs fam?

Modelling has been something i’ve wanted to make more than just a hobby, and signing to Nevs has given me the strength to make it into more than just a dream; a lifetime career even. Nevs are dope! Wouldn’t want to be with anybody else, I love my model family!

What are you most looking forward to about the shows?

WALKING, and meeting some amazing people. I’m just ready to get out there and show people what I bring to the table

What are your must haves for LFW survival? (bobble hat and gloves at the ready! brrrr)

VASELINE. A hard brush for my hair, coconut oil, black soap and WATER! Oh, and my snood, beanie and headphones

Who is your favourite Designer? 

Tommy Hilfiger. He’s always kept it so simple, yet so effective with the same / similar colour palettes and materials. I was in LOVE with his new collection debuted in New York Fashion Week, denim never looked so good!

Ultimate Style Icon? 

ASAP Rocky and Rihanna. My style is a mixture of both genders and they are both so clean and jiggy. Never seen a bad outfit drop on either of them 

Dream vacation? 

Tour bussing around America with my closest homies OR the Bahamas to visit a friend - he Face Times me all the time to make me jealous. BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY

Your biggest challenge?

Right now, balancing university with being a model, especially going to uni in Birmingham. I’m in London every week for castings but somehow manage to be a Law with American Legal Studies undergrad. Long, but worth it. LOL 

Most treasured possession? 

I don’t think I have one..

Couldn’t live without? 

IPhone, headphones and a notebook. Daily essentials for me!

Currently on your playlist? 

Solange – Cranes in the Sky and Yxng Bane – Shape Of You (Ed Sheeran remix) 

What makes you smile?

Genuine energy and lots of sweets

Biggest fear? 

Not achieving what I know I can achieve. Wasting time and resources with no tangible outcome 

Most recent purchase?

This oversized khaki fur hoodie from Story Of Lola on ASOS. Last one, too!

Fave movie of all time? 

Freedom Writers and Shark Tale 

Biggest inspiration in life and why? 

Again, without sounding cliché, my mum. She’s everything a woman should be and I never realised how valuable the lessons she taught me were until I moved to university. I owe her everything

Obsessed with right now? 

Water, and green peppermint tea

Sum yourself up in three words? 

The Rosebud, Yo
