Before getting into modeling, 21-year old model Jules Cockett went to the Academy for International Culinary Arts in the hopes of becoming an international chef. However, when an agent spotted him in a mall and invited him to give modeling a shot, he made a 180-degree career turn and from then on concentrated on modeling.

At the onset, Jules did photoshoots for budding photographers. Finding that this half-Filipino, half-British model is ready for the big league, his agent advised him to do a go-see for the Philippine Fashion Week. He reluctantly agreed. His first attempt to capture a slot in the Philippine Fashion Week 2009 ramp was a success. After his appearance in the grand fashion event, several offers started to come his way. But before his modeling career could go full-throttle, an operation caused him to lose a significant amount of muscle mass. So, he decided to put his modeling career on hiatus.

Early this year, he went back to the gym and is presently slowly getting back into model form. He has also been attending VTR's, pictorials and go-sees left and right.

Jules is currently slated to do a series of shows for designer Ariel Agasang. He is also aiming for another chance to walk the ramp of Philippine Fashion Week. In the future and if given the chance, Jules would either pursue an international modeling career or enter showbusiness as a comedic actor.

Kyle Sparks is a 19-year old athlete-turned-model who was born in San Diego, California to an American father and a Filipina mother. In 2007, he moved to the Philippines to finish his college education. At present, he is a sophomore at the University of the Philippines-Diliman taking up Bachelor of Physical Education in the institution's College of Human Kinetics. He is also a member of the university's varsity track team competing in javelin throws and sprints.

Kyle has been into sports since his childhood. His passion for sports garnered him awards, one of which is for being the record holder in 4x100 relay and long jump in Faith Academy, his highschool alma mater.

Last year, Kyle broadened his horizons. He proved that he can not only show off his skills in sports, but also his looks and physique in modeling. In November 2010, he walked the ramp for Ateneo de Manila's Shindig Fashion show. This paved the way to more modeling opportunities such as Philippine Fashion and Fusion and a Swatch Fashion Show. Very soon, he will take part in the biggest fashion event of the Philippines - the Phil Fashion Week. And hopefully too, he lands his very first role in a television commercial soon.

Among his accomplishments in modeling is being featured on the March issue of Mega Magazine where actress Lovi Poe is on the cover. He will also appear on the April issue of Garage magazine.

Although Kyle is open to a lot of possibilities as far as his modeling career is concerned, he still wants to finish his college education - a value which his parents instilled in him. Kyle believes that finishing his studies would be one of the keys to his success.
