On our radar this week is Saint International model Brandon Bailey in the June fashion editorial of Flaunt magazine.

The shoot was done... in March on the roof of a building in Manhattan , New York. The experience overall on set was a good one, although I must say, contrary to what the weather looks like, it was freezing!

On working for the first time with photographer Slava Mogutin and stylist Long Nguyen... Creatively, I think they were on point and professional with the way they handled organising everything and working together.

Favourite look from the shoot... the ensemble by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent

Fashion tips picked up on set... I can wear anything I want.

On being a featured model for Ralph Lauren's advertising campaign versus a new face of John Varvatos's advertising campaign... Ralph Lauren is more for a formal, classic occasion while John Varvatos's brand represents an edgier rock and roll vibe.

On music and his alter ego Pencil Lunatic... I've just released the following singles Gal Trade, Love Me Back and Outlaw, all out now on YouTube and all digital platforms.

What's next... Hopefully, more campaigns to come, but for sure new major editorials on the way

On being MIA after a breakout season as a model after Deiwght Peters scouted him at CPJ Bar and Grill, becoming the first Jamaican male model to debut on the runway for Prada; shows for Coach, Raf Simmons, Kanye West's Yeezy, Ann Demeulemeester, Public School, and so many other relevant labels... I will be back on the runways this September for Fashion Week, I took a break for two seasons but I'm sure I'll be back better than ever.
