Not just one, but ELEVEN teens are featured in today’s Sunday Times Style magazine, all described by Jessica Brinton as “Generation Next: Young, cool, talented and destined for stardom”.
They are all friends of the daughter of the founder of Storm model agency (it’s all about who you know…) and they are launching their careers through modelling.
They’re all exciting young prospects, all passionate, cool and eager to be stars. Except, perhaps, Louis, the “professional layabout”.
Here are the ones that stand out for me:
Genevieve Garner (19) – Plans to be a freelance stylist and launch a new mag showcasing fashion talent. Also interesting to note that she was tipped as ‘one to watch’ by Vogue last year.
Jazzy de Lisser (18) – award-winning documentary maker, actress, DJ. Also set up a charity.
Kesewa Aboah (16) – model: striking, high street friendly face. Has modelled for Topshop and H&M so expect to see a lot more of her in the coming months/years.
And here are the rest, in case you were wondering:
Alex Watson (18) – brother of Emma, model, featured in Burberry campaign with her.
Damon Baker (20) – from the West Midlands, moved to NY to photograph models. Storm got him on board when he came back and he’s now “meeting fashion’s great and good”.
Jesse Burgess (19) – “model, TV presenter and one-time eBay entrepreneur”.
Claude and Louis Simonon (17 and 18)- models, brothers, campaigns for H&M, Levi’s and Dr Martens. Claude is also into boxing.
Cara Delevingne (17) – model (Burberry, US Vogue, H&M), wannabe actress
Adwoa Aboah (18) – Actress. Kesewa’s sister.
Sascha Bailey (16) – model, wannabe actor
