With models often being the faces but not the voices of a fashion editorial, we decided it’s about time to also lend an ear to the things these young up and comers have to say. Having a quick chat while photographer Sophie Mayanne shot them in their native London, they fittingly were dressed in fashion’s latest up and coming menswear labels – which, gladly, increasingly also infuse their designs with distinct messages, be it on the future, change, or just themselves.

Emanuel, 18 years old

What are your hopes for the future?
My hopes for the future are that there will be less war, more peace, more love.

If you could change one thing what would it be?
One thing I will change… I think I will change… the weather.

Describe yourself in three words?
Fun, confident and… I don’t know, a lovely person I guess.

Alex, 25 years old

What are your hopes for the future?
Personally I’m really looking forward to when I’m going to have my own little island.

If you could change one thing what would it be?
World peace, that would be pretty sweet, or if not maybe like an universal language where everyone can understand each other and communicate clearly with each other.

Describe yourself in three words?
Aware, a bit sneaky, and hungry.

Giordano, 20 years old

What are your hopes for the future?
What I would like for the future to be changed is for people to come together and stop war and unite ourselves. I do believe we should love each other more and care about one another. We’re just becoming too selfish, destroying communication with social media. We should interact in person more.

How would you describe yourself?
I’m a very happy person, quite eccentric, and artistic.
