Oliver Dale arrived at the PHOENIX office early, bright as his signature ginger locks. The 20-year-old model and dancer, originally from Hastings, has got a busy summer ahead – including flying to Barbados for a six-day shoot (in his words, a “working holiday”). Then he’s back in London for the Olympics, where he will be dancing in the closing ceremonies. Not afraid to shy away from colour, he’s planning to wear a lot of on-trend mint green for SS12 to complement his crowning glory.
The highlight of his career so far is a campaign for Stone Island, and he’d love to get bookings by Burberry and to walk for McQueen.
The future’s bright – the future’s orange.
