MEN STYLE FASHION: The 'Next' thing was chosen for modeling. It must have been like...
naturally, you're coming into your next destiny and you're not really realizing that because its taken some time. Football, Modeling, I mean!
JOHN HALLS: I've been lucky!
MEN STYLE FASHION:Talk us through it. So you've gone through 'Next'. How do you mentally prepare for that?
JOHN HALLS: Well funnily enough, which I didn't tell you. I did model from the age of
7 or 8 until I was 12 or 13. So I did that, and I did quite well! I was in Kylie Minouges video. I did all the catalogues when I was younger and what not! I think I got to about 11 or 12 and I said "mum
don't want to do it no more, I want to play football, leave me alone". The money was good! They were getting new kitchens! John didn't see none of it! Yeah, so I did do that when I was younger and then. so, I don't know, maybe a little bit in the back of my mind, when I retire, 35-36 whatever, I could go into a bit of modeling you know? As you do! But I didn't know nothing about the game really! and yeah, that was it! I sort of fell into it. The first, 3-4 months was rubbish. I didn't do much. Then you know, the agents were great, they stayed with me. They kept me going out to the castings and what not. They sent me out to America and then I was lucky enough, when I was in New York to be front cover!
Some guy I met put me on the front cover of Man of the World! I was like "oh lovely!" "Cheers mate!"
since that came out, its sort of gone onwards and upwards! My agents have all been great!
MEN STYLE FASHION:You were at Dolce and Gabbana last month?
JOHN HALLS: Yep, I opened with Dolce, that was great!
MEN STYLE FASHION: Talk about D&G. Honestly, thats very high level!
JOHN HALLS: I wasn't even gonna go to Milan Fashion Week if I'm honest with you. I was shooting in Bologna and my plane got cancelled. It was a strike. So the only way I could get home was to get a train into Milan and then I think I was waiting for a day or a few hours. And while I was there, I went to see my agents in Eps and they said, look just go and see D&G and go and see Armani. Fashion week is coming up and it would be nice to go and see them and say hello. That was it! Went and said hello
and I thought nothing of it! Back to London!
MEN STYLE FASHION: Best way to be with modeling? Just go with the flow!
JOHN HALLS: Most of the time you don't know too much in advance of what your week. Just go with the flow, go meet people, you don't know who you're meeting, you don't know what it could lead to but I'm enjoying it. Yeah! So I came back to London and they said you're penciled in for Dolce and Armani
go back out there! So I was like, "Okay" I'm happy to go for the week! I went out there and like you know, there's tons and tons of boys out there, young boys so I felt a bit old but all these young boys walking about and I'm like! So erm... So we had the... I got confirmed for Dolce and Armani and we had the fitting on the day. I sort of heard from someone, they said you might be opening the show; I thought "me?" ah don't be silly! So then we turned up and then, yeah it was... opening the show, and I was like "Ooo lovely!"
MEN STYLE FASHION: How was that? You're downplaying it! But people! This is huge!
JOHN HALLS: It was great! I enjoyed ever minute of it!
MEN STYLE FASHION: You looked amazing!
JOHN HALLS: The clothes were amazing, the boys were great, everyone behind the scenes were fantastic, it was a good day!
MEN STYLE FASHION: What do you think it is about that brand that is so strong?
JOHN HALLS: All you've got to do is look at the clothes. Thats the main thing. Theres not many things in the whole collection.. we had 80 boys and I don't think I looked at any of the 80 boys and thought...
You know, dodgy. You know, every single piece looked amazing and even their ready-to-wear stuff you know, Id love to wear that daily. Their branding is great they are so strong and yeah everything about them is great.
