My name is Tobi Akinpade, a recent economics graduate from the London borough of Barking and Dagenham. I grew up with a keen interest in fashion, a total sneaker-head. I was in love with the fabrics and designs of luxury fashion brands and I loved waiting on the newest drops for near Nike’s or Jordans. I recently started a clothing line, that started off as something I would do casually, designing clothes for myself. Eventually the people around me began to notice my creations and were interested in buying my designs. This gave me more motivation to enter the fashion industry, but I was always told, I should model. So I began to take more pictures, posting on instagram and twitter, accumulating 1000’s of likes. From then, I began to consider modelling, fashion modelling to be precise. I’m also a sports fanatic that supports Manchester United and loves watching basketball and boxing, that is why I’m keen in modelling in photoshoots that promote sportswear and apparel.
This should at least be 200 words for the casting director to get a good idea of how you are!
