Today’s Model In-Depth focuses on one of our classic models Brian Echlin. Brian is just starting out with us at Tyne Tees Models and with a fashion background has high hopes for the future.

What do you enjoy most about being a model?

Sounds a bit cliché, but it’s meeting new people and getting to know them, maybe for a short time and adding something to their life while doing the same to your own.

What is your career highlight to date?

One of my main highlights would probably be doing some extra work on the award winning movie Atonement, starring James Mcavoy and Kiera Knightley. It was with another 999 extras but I was on screen and got to sit and chat with James himself.

When I was a kid I wanted to be…

Easily a Crime Fighter with super powers… What didn’t every kid?

My biggest celebrity crush is…

Probably Keira Knightley, I would have loved to have met her!

If I could travel to anywhere in the world it would be:

To go back to Hawaii, it was amazing, although I have been blessed to go to many amazing places around the world.

My dream brand to work for would be:

I’d love to do a shoot for Ralph Lauren, so if you are reading this Mr Lauren (fingers crossed).
But locally it would be Barbour, I love their Steve McQueen range, unquestionably the coolest man of all time.

Who is your inspiration for being in this industry? 

Got to be David Gandi… Or Jamie Redknapp.
