Interview: Model L’a Tesha Wilson (UK)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m 29 years old model from London, been modelling since a baby as my mum put me into child modelling and I kept at it. I have been lucky to be signed with top model agency around the world like IMG and Select models just to name a few. I now run a small beauty skincare company L’anice beauty and I still Model and act.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
It would be to be a little taller I wish I was 5’11 but I’m 5’10.
How did you start modelling?
My mum had me child modelling and when I was 12 I kept getting scouted by big Agency like Storm and IMG. At 15 I signed with IMG so that how I got into high fashion modelling.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It teaches you to be strong and independent but also about business as well. It’s long hours and hard work but I love it and have stuck at it for all these years and now do the same with acting all hours hard work.
What is your beauty regimen?
I like to use the products I make and sell, have been making my own skincare for a long time now and always get asked what do I use but I also go to the steam room every week and spend an hour steaming as well as taking vitamins. I’m simple with my skincare just use a few products like a face wash, rose toner and a facial serum and if my skin needs exfoliating I use a coffee scrub.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I love being creative by making my own diys like clothes or skincare and growing plants but I’m also a qualified pilates teacher.
What are your plans for the future?
To continue modelling if possible and I have now gone into acting as well as making skincare products so will stick with those as they are a passion of mine.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Traveling the world for fashion week each country has a special vibe and you get to see a lot of the city your in running around to castings and go see, it’s great.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
My advice is even if you get told no don’t give up keep pushing as long as you got the passion you will get signed and into modelling but also be strong you will hear lots of NO but you hear a YES.
What do you think of the magazine?
It’s great and gives out great content. Very good for anyone who loves fashion.
