Edward was this seasons male model for our Shoe Connection Winter/Autumn 15 Campaign. Originally from Rotorua NZ, Ed now lives in LA working as a full-time model. In between shots and hair & makeup, we chatted with Ed about modelling and all of his favourite things!
What model agency are you signed with?
How did you get into modelling?
My girlfriend got me involved in modelling when I was 18. I thought it would never be for me, but I was hooked after my first job.
Your style is…?
Dressy but comfortable. I tend to go for a tee-shirt, jeans and a blazer.
Your go to outfit?
Probably a plain fitted tee, black skinny jeans and Spring Court shoes.
Your favourite footwear brand?
What is one piece of clothing you can’t live without?
My Bailey Nelson sunglasses.
Currently listening to?
Mostly rock music like Pink Floyd, The Black Keys and Neil Young. I also listen to reggae and hip-hop, particularly New Zealand reggae.
Your favourite food?
Dumplings and pizza!
Your favourite place in the world?
Dublin, Ireland. Their culture is very similar to New Zealand’s.
But then again, New Zealand would have to be number one. Closely followed by, Sydney and LA.
If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would it be?
Bob Marley. He’s really chill and philosophical and passionate.
