U.S Fencing Champion Miles Chamley-Watson Talks Fashion With Buzznet!
I am excited and honored to introduce you all to the extremely talented Miles Chamley-Watson! Miles is most known for the fact he won the title of US Fencing Champion! He is currently breaking out into the fashion world and getting recognition by GQ, Rollingstone, FOX and many more! I am a huge fan of fashion and can definitely understand why Miles is getting recognized across the board for his!
Here is an exclusive interview we did:
You just recently made World History and have the title of “World Fencing Champion” all at the age of 23. If possible try to describe how that moment felt.
I truly learned the meaning for surreal when I won. It was something I have always dreamed about since I was a young boy in London. All my training, sacrifices, all felt worth it when I won in August. Not only was I extremely happy and proud to win, but it meant even more when I was the first male to ever win. It felt good, to really make my family and coach proud. It was not just me winning, it was the entire United States of America.
Not only have you become known for your fencing but you’ve been getting hype for your amazing fashion from GQ, Rollingstone, Fox and many more tell us about that!
It has been amazing. I have always been a huge fan of fashion and pushing the edge. I have always taken risks in fashion and in fencing, that have paid off. Modeling has been going good as well, I have been lucky enough to have worked with some great photographers, and meet some amazing people. You know you have done something right when you are being featured on GQ, Rollingstone, Fox, CBS and during NYFW. I have had an opportunity to walk in fashion shows, and have been asked to walk for Madrid FW also in February so that will also be a great experience. My life has definitely changed but this is only the beginning for me. I would love to continue modeling, fashion as well as training for the 2016 Olympic Games. I have a great management team, so there is no limit to what is next. I hope to eventually start my own clothing line, that brings something completely different to the table.
How would you describe your personal style?
I have a very unique, crazy, unpredictable style. I consider my style luxurious mixed with urban, pop, street. I love mixing companies like Adyn with Lanvin or Dolce Gabbana. I enjoy wearing urban, hip brands, but then also enjoy fitting into a fitted Tom Ford, or Dolce suit. Fashion is one thing that is preference so you feel good, you look good.
What are your top 5 favorite brands to rock right now?
My top five brands in no particular order would have to be, Lanvin, Rick Owens, Dolce and Gabbana, YSL, and ADYN.
What advice can you give the readers regarding fashion, following your dreams and being unique?
The advice I would give the readers are keep pushing the limit. Never be satisfied with fashion, always look to try and bring something new to the table because fashion will always change, so you better be ready for it. I am always looking for ways to put different articles of clothing together. Clothes look different on different people, its you thats wearing it not the clothes.
Now that you have a feel for his fashion sense here is some footage of him fencing which comletely blows me away.
