Meet Archie. Catalogue model, animal rights activist, certified ‘Good Boy‘™ and our newest Ambassador. We caught up with the cutie to find out what makes him tick, and what gets his tail wagging.
You’re a natural in front of the camera! What made you get into modelling?
To be honest, I’ve always loved the spotlight. I must admit, I turn heads as I’m walking down the street and I’m often stopped on the weekend, so modelling seemed like a natural fit for me. I’m not sure if it’s my ‘too cool for school’ attitude or my wicked selection of outfits, whatever it is-the locals love it. The craft service is also definitely a bonus.
You look amazing. How do you keep in shape?
I walk religiously. It helps me keep in shape, and also helps clear my head. I also make friends down at the local park, the greyhounds will often chase me around but I’m very self motivated – I prefer to chase my tail.
I’m also conscious about only eating organic, healthy foods. Carrots and blueberries are my favourite! I’ll help mum cook dinner most nights – she’d be completely lost without my guidance. Mum is a vegetarian but she’s happy to poach me up some chicken, let’s be honest, who can say no to these big brown eyes.
Your schedule must be packed! What do you like to do in your down time?
When I’m not on shoots, I love to go on bush walks and try my paw at swimming (its tough, pugs don’t float!). And of course, spending time with my best friend Lenny the cat, and my beautiful girlfriend Audrey.
What trends are you most excited to see for this coming season?
This summer is all about being bright and bold! Think warm reds, pinks and oranges. But really, I believe what’s most stylish is what you feel good in – so opt for luxurious and breathable fabrics like linen and silk.
Why are you excited to be working with Brands Exclusive for their Christmas campaign?
Nothing gets my tail wagging more than the thrill of a designer steal. So naturally, when Brands Exclusive approached me, I couldn’t say no! It just really felt like a paw in the right direction.
