– Jesus Palacios, model
What’s your story?
I am a 23 years old model from Málaga, Spain where I’ve joined modelling agency after graduating from high school 3 years ago. Quickly afterwards I went to casting in Barcelona and was signed by an agency there. Apart of modelling, I play a guitar and enjoy sports like football, basketball, tennis and surfing.
Who has influenced you the most in your life?
My mum, she always tells me what to do and how to do it. She is my mentor and I love her.
What is the best decision you’ve ever made?
Getting into modelling although it was a big step to leave home, family and friends and start travelling around the world.
How would your best friend describe you?
As a really funny guy, probably.
How do you stay current?
I like surf and skate style so it’s where the most inspiration comes from but I try to build my own style by adding some personal touch. I think everybody should do the same.
Where do you shop?
I like brands like Criminal Damage, Hype, DGK, DC and Nike.
What’s the best style advice you’ve ever heard?
I believe the best advice I ever got was from my booker: “Find what you like and make it your style.”
What’s your favourite fragrance?
Eros by Versace.
Anywhere where they serve a good paella 🙂
What are top three songs on your playlist at the moment?
Rich Homie Quan Dead On, Young Thug Hercules and Fetty Wap Trap Queen.
Who should we follow on Instagram?
I love tattoos so @tattoos_of_instagram, @sneakers_page for trainers news, and people like Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.
What are your plans for 2016?
Just to travel, work, learn and live as I do now.
