We were very impressed that Lewis Chesson-Grieve at Nevs Models had already been in 3 shows when we met him - he'd only been modelling 4 days!
So how long have you been modelling for?
4 days? Wow!
Yeah I just scouted 4 days ago.
And you already got a show?
Yeah this was my third.
Third in 4 days! We’re very impressed. So which shows were you in?
Matthew Miller, Craig Green, and one other.
Cool, did you enjoy them?
Yeah quite cool, such buzz, such buzz. It’s quite surreal really.
Do you have an interesting story behind how you got scouted, considering it was 4 days ago?
Not really, I was in London, and a bloke called Steve came up to me and it went from there.
Where are you from originally?
I’m from Kent.
Can we have some random facts about you?
I play guitar. I used to do karting.
What kind of music do you usually play?
I’m into the Libertines, Pete Doherty, Noel Gallagher. I went to Pete’s gig once, I crowd surfed to the front of the stage. When I got on I got chucked off by security, before I got chucked off I shouted “I love you Pete,” and he stopped singing a minute and said “I love you too son,” and then carried on singing.
Aw that’s an amazing story, thank you!
Name: Lewin Chesson-Grieve
Agency: Nevs, London
Super-tall Lewis, at 6’3″ is a bit of a chameleon. He can look both the fresh-faced kid or the cool indie boy. A few weeks back we asked Karl Axon to take a few portraits of Lewis. He’s already walked for Marc Jacobs, Andrea Pompilio, featured in a Topman Lookbook and shot editorials for Wonderland amongst others.
Where are you originally from?
What’s been your most memorable moment in modelling so far?
Going to New York, defo.
When not modelling what do you get up to?
I so try to occupy my time with practical activists but sometimes I can find myself just sitting on my *** playing PS lol
Whats your favourite type of music?
Errr ild say gym. I started a few months ago and since noticing progression and others noticing I have put a little weight on I’m always keen to get myself down there. With summer coming and everything.
If you could meet anybody alive or not, who would it be?
Bob marley. He was a man of many wonders !!
Saving private Ryan
What wouldnt you leave the house without?
My phone lol
Place of Origin:
I had been told by a few people that I could potentially model and then I was scouted by Nevs 2 days before AW13 show season. Got to walk 2 shows straight away, so it started straight away.
My mum’s chilli-con-carne and working out at the gym.
Favorite music, band:
I love house music and my favourite band is Skunk Anansie but I also have to give a big shout out to my mate’s brilliant band The Black Tears.
Favorite movie, tv show:
Friends has to be my all-time favourite TV show and my favourite movie is Saving Private Ryan.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Marc Jacobs has to be one of my favourite designers and I currently like Paco Rabanne XS for men.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
To be honest I wouldn’t want to think about where my life would be heading if I didn’t have modelling to concentrate on like I do now. It came just at the right time to save me
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Star Wars and on-line quest games.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
That has to be going to New York and walking for Marc Jacobs. That was a mind blowing experience.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The people I have grown up around and with, top quality mates
