New Model Army – Glass meets George Dickinson
1st February 2018
Name: George Dickinson
Agency: Premier Model Management
How did you become a model? And why?
I was scouted by one of the Premier Scouts on a beach in Dorset when I was 15. I thought they were having a laugh, but it turns out they weren’t and so here I am.
Have you always wanted to be a model?
No, it surprised me but I must say, you get used to having your picture taken fairly quickly.
Who are your heroes in life and in modelling?
Naomi Klein because she’s always right. I also love Ferris Bueller as he’s always lucky. It helps that his clothes are just so great.
What is your present state of mind?
What is your idea of happiness?
Happiness is to be worry and carefree yet still having something to look forward to.
How would you like to be perceived by others?
It’s really important to me to be nice as treat others as I want to be treated.
If you were not a model, what would you be?
Honestly, I don’t have an absolute clue.
What was the best advice you’ve ever been given? And who gave it to you?
My dad told me to just minus two off the second number and then you can tell the time on a 24-hour clock.
What do you miss most when you’re travelling?
Proper vegetarian food. Some places just don’t understand what vegetarianism is!
What is your favourite song or songs to walk to?
Walnuss by Gurr.
What would you say is the biggest myth or misperception about being a model?
The people you meet are usually very friendly. I think that would surprise people as fashion is seen as quite a harsh industry. It’s honestly much less competitive than you might expect.
What is your opinion on the fashion and modelling industries?
Everyone is trying their best and frankly, you can’t ask for more than that.
