Which modelling agency are you represented by? I’m represented by a Belorussian agency Ann Models and a Russian kids models agency called Madison.

Why did you decide to start modelling? My sister worked in a modelling agency and there was a boxing gym nearby. I loved boxing very much and once, when we were picking up my sister from class, I asked my mom if we could go in and visit the boxing club. The coach at the club said that I would need to be 8-9 years old before I could join the club. I was five, and I went to modelling school to be next door to boxing. But in the end, I didn’t get into boxing. I am currently playing tennis.

What is the best part about being a model? Travel and new acquaintances….. And also the opportunity to feel like an adult, because this is a real job, for money.

Which has been your favourite shoot to date? Recently, I have been shooting for a major Russian network Street beat in Jordan clothes. That was awesome!

If you could work with any brand which would be top on your list? Ferrari children’s clothing line, and, of course, Zara! D2squared and Diesel also.

Which is your top fashion magazine/blog? Frankly speaking, I don’t really stick to fashion magazines. Only if there are clothes for riders or motorcyclists.

Which are your favourite fashion brands? Zara! But I also like nice expensive suits. I looked for one from Armani, but I haven’t bought it yet.

Which models do you look up to for inspiration? Recently I have been shooting with a very beautiful girl. I admire her

Who is your favourite actor and actress? I love it when actors are strong. Schwarzenegger, Bruce Lee, Stallone. I still love boxing.

What is it that you like about them? They’re real tough guys. I recently secretly watched the Coen brothers movie “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”, but I couldn’t keep it a secret and told everyone. I said it was the best movie I had ever seen and I would like to make such a movie. It’s great to be cool and brave, but fun and a little crazy.

What is your favourite item in your closet? I have a dozen black hoodies and recently have bought another one. There are never many black hoodies. My favourite is from Antony Morato.

Who is your role model? I can’t say… I want to be what only I can be. For everyone to say – only Philip can do that.

Do you speak any languages? If so which languages? I’m not a polyglot. I study English at the gymnasium. I know French – Bonjour, bonjour, Comment ça va? In Italian – ciao! In Chinese -ni hao. Well, and a couple more words.

If you could have 3 wishes, what would they be? Endless slice of pizza, husky dog sledge and to be able to fly. Can I have one more? Pufferfish! People will always be attentive to the person who has a pufferfish at home.

If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be? Elon Musk! I have to talk to him. I want to go to Mars too.

What is your biggest dream? So that my friends today will stay with me for the rest of my life, even if I become a multi-billionaire.

What do you like to do in your spare time? Meet with friends and come up with funny pranks.
