Harvey Newton-Haydon for Gieves & Hawkes S/S 2015, All Over Press.

In 2009, Harvey Newton-Haydon visited New York during fashion week. Despite the purpose of his visit having nothing to do with designer clothing, front rows and street style photographers, it ended up being about exactly that. When the then 20-year-old was out at a nightclub, he was scouted by a modelling agency and his new career began. After six years in the industry he continues to be a model most wanted.

Over the years, Harvey has been featured in campaigns for some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including L’Oréal, Givenchy, Roberto Cavalli, Hugo Boss and of course H&M. His most memorable campaign was for French Connection back in 2013. 

Why? He was naked in half of the photos. 

During a recent, and fully clothed, shoot with H&M the 27-year-old took time to answer our top model secrets questionnaire.
