Transcript of the podcast

Trisha: Well. Glyn you’re been called the first male supermodel. Would you agree with that

Glyn: Not really Trisha, to be honest, I think having a famous designer as a wife helps up my profile, and there are one or two other male models who are household names

Trisha: Was that how you got into the fashion world? I mean through your wife’s contacts

Glyn: Yes and no. I was working as a catwalk model when I met Regina here in Milan – she was showing her latest collection – and I had already done bits and bobs of catalogue stuff, but it wasn’t until we got it together that I started appearing in fashion magazines like Vogue and Vanity Fair

Trisha: So it has helped then

Glyn: Definitely. There are so many guys out there, which makes it pretty competitive. Before Regina, I really had to work at it – I was constantly sending out portfolios to agencies and doing auditions

Trisha: And now

Glyn: It’s a lot different. I can pick and choose more or less

Trisha: So, if you don’t like the look of a new collection then you pass

Glyn: No, it’s not like that. I think a professional can model anything – whatever the colour, pattern or cut. It’s the type of work that decides it for me

Trisha: What do you mean

Glyn: I don’t do show seasons anymore. I’ve been sticking almost exclusively to print work

Trisha: And I hear you are planning a career change

Glyn: Yes, yes it’s true. Regina and I are setting up our own agency so if you fancy a job as a scout, Trisha, just let me know

Trisha: It’s a competitive business

Glyn: Yes, we know. But we’re going to be a bit different in terms of what type of model we’re looking for

Trisha: In what way

Glyn: We’re trying to get away from the stereotypical physical characteristics – you know the men have to be between six foot and six two, jacket size 40-42, the women over five-ten and very slim or even skinny – that type of stuff

Trisha: Sounds great, but can shorter models really make it in
