New Face: Alex At Elite Models

1 May 2013

Confident new face at Boys by Girls this week is Elite Models London boy, Alex Whipham, photographed by Cecilie Harris. As well as blooming confidence, Alex is a boy who gives off great positive energy and excitement. His stunning features (his eyes are beyond magic) are just a small section of what makes Alex so interesting.

Having walked for Christopher Shannon already during London Collections Men, and featured in GQ, oki-ni and i-D Online amongst others, Alex’s modelling career is looking very promising and he clearly has a lot to offer in the modelling world. We are definitely keeping our eyes peeled for him. Aside from modelling, Alex has another passion – boxing! Is there a better combination? An ambitious athlete and a beautiful face!

In the below portrait series, Alex wears a mix of his own clothes and some cool streetwear inspired designs (t shirt and jeans) by menswear designer Mark Thomas Taylor. Perfect attire for a cool, refreshing and ambitious young male such as Alex.
