Name|Axel Serine
Hometown|Paris, France 
Originally from Martinique, Caribbean

How did you get discovered?
I was discovered at school by my mother agent. I was supposed to become a English teacher!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was attending school and also a dancer—I was in a dance team
People would be surprised to know that I...
was given a free Saint Laurent backpack at a editorial shoot! What are the chances of that ever happening again?Amazing, right?
What's your latest obsession?
I am really into music. Cannot stay home without loud music. Discovered a new band lately called Hiatus Kaiyote that I am absolutely obsessed with!
Your most prize possession?
The thing I cherished the most is a vintage ACDC shirt that my grandfather gave me before he passed away. Cannot travel without it!
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My grandfather. He went through a lot in his life, went to war and always kept the smile and appreciated the good side of things!
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
Yesterday, to my girlfriend. I've been with her for six years now...
Je t'aime!
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Corny, Funny and Stylish
Describe your personal style:
My style depends on my mood. I always like to keep an edge to my outfits. I like to stand out a bit from everyone. 
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Capetown, South Africa—It's a big city but still with the vibe of an island. I liked the mixture!
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
The Fifth Element—Scene: I really liked the part when the diva singer performed while Leeloo was busting the bad guys' asses
Your favorite sport:
Not a avid fan of sports!
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Martinique, Caribbean—You cannot go to Martinique without heading to the beaches there. A beautiful 2km beach with white sand and crystal blue waters.
If you were given a indie cable show, which song would you choose as your opening theme song?
Ocelot by Hiatus Kaiyote 
The show would be about my life, vision through fashion, all the ups and downs!
Favorite moment in modeling:
When I was confirmed for the Jean Paul Gaultier the very first time! I recalled not able to sleep for two days after the news...I was THAT happy! Editor's note: Axel is the current campaign model for Jean Paul Gaultier SS2014 season! Congrats!
Your wish for the remainder of 2013?
To be the next big name to watch in modeling!
