This week’s model is a rising star, there’s something I love about the success of a British model and Finn Hayton is exactly that
Finn Hayton, gives me this sense of excitement for his career, having only started so recently and already booking some highly coveted jobs. This young model bagged Versus Versace in his first season and even more recently walked for Dolce & Gabbana. Finn’s future seems incredibly bright and with him already taking off only a few months in the modelling game he was the perfect model for this week. I spoke to him for a Lewis ‘Unfiltered Q&A’ where he told us a little about himself
