5 Minutes with Niki

6 March 2019

We take 5 minutes with Niki Burton at Select to see what's going on in his world.

You can check out his two stories with Georgie Wileman "Easily Led" and "To My Words" if you want to see pretty pictures of him too after you've enjoyed this interview. We are super kind, we know. That's how we roll.


What are you up to at the moment?
Past few weeks I have started trying to sort my fitness out by going to the gym and go swimming. Also looking after my new three month old baby brother, and of course catching up with friends

What inspires you?
Everything inspires me. Friends, family, my surroundings. I like art and photography, so I guess I get inspired from sometimes the smallest thing for that.

What do you do when you're not working?
Bond with my nine year old brother more, link up with friends, play football, go around town and do art.

Who would be your ultimate brand to work with?
Off the top of my head I would say g-star just because it's one of my favorite brands that I wear a lot and I like pretty much all their collections.

What's the best piece of advise you have ever had?
I can't think of the best piece of advise but 'just be your self', and a funny one 'you can lie to other people, but you can't lie to yourself'.

What are you looking forward to at the moment?
Seeing my best mate Lucas later on that I haven't seen for a while.

Would yellow and pink dotted goats be more fabulous than a football team of flamingos?
No way.

What has made you laugh lately?
Too many things, I'm very easily amused! haha
