Myles Sexton: Interview

 

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Tilda Swinton

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

The Next Generation

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because it is my dream and I want to change the world.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Well I always wanted to model ever since I was little. I had this dinky point and shoot camera that I would set up and put the time on. I then would take photos of different clothes I would wear and post them on myspace. 
The real moment though was when I started reading fashion magazine and I would be so inspired by all the imagery. The only problem was I could not relate to anyone in the magazine. Its kinda been my drive in life to become t he man I wish I knew existed as a child.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

I think the hardest thing I had to overcome is to believe in myself. We are our own worst enemy. We have more control over our choices than anyone else around us. Once I let go of my negative thoughts and fought for my dreams because they made me happy no obstacle has stood for long in my way.

Well I would have to say the Nova Scotia Fashion industry really welcomed me in to their family and helped me see my strengths! I don’t know what I would have done without all the incredible talent there.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I think the lack there of people is what inspired me when I was in my teens. The fashion industry has changed immensely over the years. It’s nice to see that individuality, and creative expression that is now happening.

 

Almost on a daily basis I get really wonderful letters from people all over the world who have been inspired by my story. It’s really quite humbling.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I would have to say that in the past I’ve given my trust away too willingly. Trust is something that is earned and is best given to those who disserve it!

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

The Launch of Jonathan Hooper and I magazine called Nord is a huge project at this point! As well I would like to start working on my next collection as well.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

The only person standing in the way of your dreams if yourself.
