Name: Melchor Mercado @ NEVS

KALTBLUT: How were you discovered?

Melchor Mercado: My representative looked at the zoo one day and saw me among the monkeys… No, actually I was discovered by Instagram, by the director of DHR Models, an agency in Buenos Aires. A great team with a great Director that today is part of my family.

KALTBLUT: What has been the high light to you career so far?

Melchor Mercado: Having made a commercial for Nike through a NewYork agency. (NewYorkModelsManagement). After that a lot of agency started to call me but none of them took it seriously. Until one day Paul, director of Nevs, welcomed me into his London house. That, was and is for me, a gesture of which I will always be grateful. My career in London has opened thousands of doors and I have met wonderful people and traveled to the main fashion capitals. Something that two years ago, was only a dream.

KALTBLUT: Whats the best piece of advice you were ever given?

Melchor Mercado: Probably a phrase from my mom -Wherever you go, always do your best.

My life is based on that phrase, no matter what, no matter where, no matter when, you always have to give your best. So be it in a campaign or queuing in a supermarket, do your best… well not so much, but you got the idea.

KALTBLUT: What item of clothing could you not live without?

Melchor Mercado: My black belt. indispensably important. And it is black, so it combines with everything.

KALTBLUT: What superpower would you love to have for 24 hours?

Melchor Mercado: Teleportation to be able to reach all my castings on time. Really.

KALTBLUT: If you only had £10 left in your pocket what would you spend it on?

Melchor Mercado: In Oreos obviously. What question is that?

KALTBLUT: Which flavour of ice cream best describes your personality?

Melchor Mercado: Dulce de leche granizado. It is an Argentinian ice cream taste. Sweet on the outside, but inside it is crispy and sometimes those pieces of chocolate are hard to chew.
