Hey, my name is Blaise Tykal Simmons-Johnson, but my nickname to everyone at home is drama queen! I’m 20 years old and I’ve been modelling professionally for just under three years now and I’m also an actress.
I enjoy taking part in sport and dancing is one of my favourite things to do. I also love to cook and read. My star sign is Gemini which means I can be a little crazy but the good kind of course!
My aim for 2017 is to continue everything I was doing in 2016 but bigger and better, achieve my goals and travel the world.
My name is Jada Sezer, I’m 27 years old and a born and raised Londoner. I’ve modelled for just under 4 years. Before being a model I was studying my Masters in Child Psychotherapy. I fell into this career through my campaign work and I’m still very passionate about diversity, mental health and personal development.
1. What was your favourite look from the shoot?
I loved the cute sparkly elephant shaped shoulder bag!
2. Did the shoot help change your perception of charity shopping?
On Saturday, we set ourselves the challenge of recreating London Fashion Week looks, in real time as they came out on the catwalk, using only what we could find inBarnardo’s Brixton charity shop!
As is customary for the Charity Fashion Live show, it was a mad dash of a day! Colourful to say the least – complete with neon coloured wigs (we actually found a huge box of wigs in the basement!), outlandish floral appliqué and bold texture clashes waltzing down our runway.
We’d love to know which were your favourite looks of the day… Was it one of our outlandish colour riot Ryan Lo recreations, or maybe our take on Jasper Conran? Tell us in the comments over on instagram @charityfashionlive or give us a shout on @CharityFashLive on twitter – we’re dying to know!!
Be sure to check out our short fashion film for a sneaky peak behind the scenes and all the runway fun on the day!
