Paris-Based Talent Matthias Zaire Channels The Power Of Family And His Journey In Fashion

"Let’s talk about this from the outset – tell us how it all materialized for you.

My career materialized thanks to my girlfriend. When I was younger, I started modeling but then I stopped because we had a child. Months upon her birth, my girlfriend motivated me to pick up modeling again. Back then, an agency contacted me I signed with them and subsequently I signed with Phoenix Models in London thanks to my French agency.

Three words that describe your best self are…

Motivated, happy and genuine.

Who’s been the best client to work with?

I guess ASOS so far, they’re a great team and I love working with them!

How’s it been for you since commencing?

Since I started in this business, I can say it’s been a great journey. Fashion allows me to do a job that I love, particularly because before modeling I wasn’t enjoying my job as much.

Essentials to bring along your travels for a last-minute job are…

Maybe my Passport, haha!

What are the things that really matter to you?

The thing that really matters for me is to be present for my family. I love my job, so to give the best of myself and to show I am grateful to the people that are giving me a chance.

Any major inspirations?

My inspiration is my son; I’d give up anything for him.

What’s the wisest lesson you’ve learnt being in the industry?

Be respectful and do your job in the humblest of ways!

Kenneth Ize FW20 Backstage!

"Sebastian Pielles captures Kenneth Ize FW20 Paris Fashion Week debut backstage in this Fucking Young Exclusive!

Designer Kenneth Ize first appeared on our radars a few seasons ago with his reinterpretations of Nigerian craft, and it was his immaculate genderless woven pieces that caught our attention. He transformed heritage craftsmanship into luxury pieces in the day and age of fast fashion and streetwear. This didn’t go unnoticed as last year he made it to the semi-finals of the prestigious LVMH Prize with Naomi as one of his biggest supporters and onto BOF’s 500.

We were delighted to see him make his debut on the official Paris Fashion Week calendar, although it was women’s week, we were sure he would go back to his menswear roots and give us a few looks. The show was a strong kick-off to the week and a much-needed breath of fresh air. Ize splits time with his studio in Lagos and influences the creative arts curriculum in local schools to create traditional fashion. While fashion is looking for solutions to many of the larger problems, Ize might be onto something much bigger than we think." - Fuckingyoung.e
