We are introducing you one more promising face from Alpha Male Model Management, Davy Swart! He is 16 years old, born and living in Amsterdam and also represented by Success Paris and UNO Barcelona. This September Davy is starting his fourth and final year of high school and we are curious to see where his modelling path will lead him after his graduation. Scouted by his agent Yannick in a movie theater, seems like Davy was the Alpha Male type of face because he got signed a week later. What followed next? Read the interview with Davy to find our more about him and his modelling career!

Hi, Davy.Can you introduce yourself with a few words to our Spotted Style followers? Who are you?
Hey, I’m Davy. I’m a nice and pretty funny guy, I love to play soccer and hang out with my friends, and do modelling of course.

What are you hobbies and biggest passions in life?
My hobbies are soccer and fitness.

When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
I was scouted in a movie theater by my agent Yannick in September last year. He asked me if I ever thought about modeling and if I was interested. A week later I came in for an intake and a test shoot and I was signed on the spot.

Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, in what way?
Not yet. I’ve met a lot of great people and made some new friends that are with Alpha Male as well, but I was always into sports and trying to stay in shape. I think the biggest changes will come when I graduate high school this year and start working abroad.

Could you tell about the jobs and shows you have done so far?
I was 15 when I started, so I haven’t done much just yet, mostly working on my portfolio. I’ve done the show for INKNI at Amsterdam Fashion Week last January. I’m already signed in Paris and Barcelona, with agencies in New
York, Milan, London and Tokyo also interested for the future, so I hope I will do a lot of cool jobs when I’m ready to travel.

What is fashion for you? How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from? 
Style is pretty important to me. On shoots I wear a lot of cool and crazy clothes, but my personal style is a lot of street wear.

Do you get to travel a lot for your work? If so what’s your favourite city that you have visited? Do you have a dream destination?
I haven’t really traveled yet because I’m still pretty young and in high school, but my dream destination would be New York. In October I’m going to Paris for a day with my agent and 3 other guys to meet the team of Success, my agency there, which is very exciting.

Give us 5 facts about you people may not know.
1. I used to have a Justin Bieber haircut
2. I don’t like wearing jackets outside, not even when it’s freezing. It drives my agent crazy, haha.
3. I like modern art.
4. I’m addicted to McDonald’s, which also drives my agent crazy, but now he has given up and sometimes goes with me after shoots.
5. My favourite colour is ocean blue

What are your top priorities? What keeps you going?
Having a good time! Further finishing my school next year, so I can travel as a model.

Define happiness. What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
Happiness is loving the things you do and enjoying life.

3 songs from your current playlist?

If you could give a name of this moment of your life, how would this chapter be called?
The Fun Zone.

How do you imagine the future and what does it hold for you?
I think I have a bright future. I hope to break through as a model and have good times and to travel a lot.

If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
Smile more.
