Name: Rory Smith
Where are you from originally?
I'm originally from Wales.
How long have you been modelling?
Full-time about 3 months. My sister is a fashion student, so she convinced me to come up with her and find an agency.
So were you modelling for her designs?
Yeah I did. She done Fashion Promotion at uni so she made a magazine for her final outcome so I kinda done all that and stuff.
What other kind of modelling experiences have you had so far?
I just come back from Berlin, done a week there for the G-Star Bread and Butter show. That was really fun.
Any other catwalk things?
Yeah, in London, I done Christopher Shannon and the Pringle show.
What’s your dream modelling job?
Erm, like realistically, kind of, I want to do the Topman campaign or maybe something for Stone Island.
I can see you in Topman.
Hopefully I’ll do it.
What are you passionate about?
Before I came up to live in London I was doing an art foundation course, so I’m kinda into things like illustration and t-shirt design and stuff like that.
3 random facts about yourself?
Random facts? Erm, I can open bottles with my teeth. I played football up until I was about 16, but then I snapped all the ligaments in my knee so I can’t play anymore. I have a dog at home called Molly as well.
If you were a song, what would you sound like?
If I was a song? That’s a tough one. Maybe something a bit reggae but maybe with a little bit of like, drum and bass added in as well.
Who’s your favourite character from "Friends"?
Joey. Cos he’s so funny.
Were you voted for anything in your yearbook?
Er, no I don’t think I was.
3 things you really love?
Trainers, like shoes.
3 things you really dislike?
And arguments, like confrontations.
