Paul Sculfor, born in East London, his rebellious-like and gentleman's vibes is his most iconic mark. As a supermodel, he influences the new generation and people who adore this industry. His point of view in fashion is extremely important. Therefore, the following will reveal to you, what does this icon think of fashion and after being a father, has his life changed?
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion has been my job & my career since 1992 -so it means a lot!
Do you think there are any significant changes in the fashion industry during these two decades?
There has been two major changes in the fashion industry and many small but significant ones.
First of all, when photography moved from film to digital -this was the biggest change which I feel took away a lot of talent and sexiness!
Before a typical shoot, we would have 8 images to achieve. After the location was sourced and set up -the photographer would do lighting tests and polaroid’s to get everything perfect. The model /hair & makeup would have to know exactly what they were doing so that this picture would be perfectly captured as there was no retouching or digital enhancement after. Everybody was fully invested in each image.
Social media is obviously another big one. I was on a big shoot recently where we had set everything up and we were ready to shoot when the other model pulled out his phone and started taking selfies -he was asked to leave as the client did not approve. There is a positive side to all of this as it gives people access and a little more freedom.
What's your excellent catch in front of the camera?
There are a few photographers that catch me right every time and who I enjoy working with, in particular, Bruce Weber & Rankin.
It’s when they catch an emotional/feeling
You were the judge in Britain's Next Model. How do you feel about it?
I really enjoyed being part of this-I got to be on the other side of the camera and constructively criticise and enlighten the girls on their possible future in fashion.
After being a father, do you think there's any change in your career?
There is definitely a change in me!! I know I now don’t like to be away on shoots for too long. But I wouldn’t say anything drastic has changed me.
What's the most remarkable challenge in your fashion journey?
It’s probably now as I get older!
In the ’90s and early 2000s, I would fly 100-150 times a years and this was a real challenge to stay healthy and grounded in all the excitement and change
Which song do you think that you can perfectly describe your life?
Omg what a good question? I’ll get back to you!
Which song did you play the most recently? Why?
Juicy -Notorious BIG
Because I Relate to his struggle in life.
Have you ever tasted the world-famous bubble tea from Taiwan?
