Hitting Greater Heights: Casey Arthur Taylor

By: Tiff of HERZEN Lifestyle Project

Height - 187 (6'2")
Nationality - Canadian

1. When and how did you start modelling?
Casey - I was scouted at a friend’s house in Ottawa. My friend was doing business with this guy that happened to be a model scout. He asked me to consider modelling. I was sceptical, I admit. He invited me to Toronto to meet with some agencies and I went with him. He asked for no money and I had time.

2. What’s the best thing about being a model?
Casey -The best thing about being a model is having a behind the scenes look into the multi-billion dollar a year fashion industry. You get to see how things really work. Before I started I really had no idea. Now I realize that it's just a business.

3. What differs modelling from other careers?
Casey -Modelling is different from other careers because the product you are selling is yourself and every casting is like a job interview. It's also cool because you can try and work in other countries which keep the job interesting.

4. What countries have you been to? [For work]
Casey - I have worked in Tokyo, Milan, Paris, London, Germany, Brussels, Spain, Israel, New York, LA, Toronto, Montreal, Cape Town, and probably some I missed. I would like to go to Sydney sometime...
- Well-travelled, nice.

5. What are the 3 projects/jobs you've done which you consider the best?
Casey - The job in Cape Town was cool. Also going to Tokyo for the Gucci show was fun. I also like going to LA where once I was booked for Old Navy.

6. Who’s your favourite model?
Casey - My favourite model is Paul Stiell and runner up Philip Huang.
- Stunning models indeed!

7. What’s your personal style when dressing up?
Casey - When I dress up I like to wear a black leather boots, black pants, belt, shirt, tie, leather jacket....
- We love your taste!

8. What’s your best asset?
Casey - My best asset as a model is my body measurements. I fit the clothes well, especially in Italy.

9. What’s your message to those aspiring models?
Casey - My best advice to those aspiring models is to give it your best shot, you never know
