How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

I can’t believe it’s almost over. 2015 was a lucky year for me. Instagram was probably the biggest part of it. I signed a contract with Aeropostale to be their style ambassador and that was a great start to transforming my blog from small time to worldwide.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

Nowadays it’s got to be Hello from Adele.

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

Whether you’re in the street, a VIP, or a fashion event, you should care and respect yourself at all times.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Wear whatever you feel like, no need to wear suits or special big name outfits. Just get your jeans and t-shirt and create your own fashion.


1 tip to grow your Instagram account.

Share your passion. Don’t role play.

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

I don’t like the guys who wear shabby clothes that fit too close to their bodies.



Worst dating experience you’ve had?

It was a very usual situation. You big up a person in your head and create an independent profile of them according to your feelings. Then you finally meet them and have to face the reality! That’s the disappointment of overrating someone!

Any major plans for the rest of 2015?

The plans never end. Acting, styling, Instagram blog and the others; they always flying around in my head. I aim to reach higher success levels with my passion and motivation.

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

Absolutely my idol is David Gandy. He is number one in this business.
