FYODOR

How were you discovered?
About three years ago I was searching for ways to travel without having the savings to do so. I came across some modelling articles and noticed I fitted the heights and measurement requirements. I applied to some London agencies and was signed the next day.

Did you have any interest in modeling before you were discovered?
Not particularly, although I had an interest in fashion I was more interested in the photographic and art direction than modelling itself.

If you weren’t a model what would you be?
I currently attend film school in London and spend what time I have spare engaging in film collaborative projects. Recently I have integrated modelling and film making by creating fashion films for new designers. I intend on a career in film and if I was not modelling I suppose I’d be working more in story based film making rather than fashion based.

Your dream modeling job?
I’ve always admired YSL as a fashion house. The beauty and craftsmanship of their garments are fascinating and stylish. If I could work for anyone, Yves St Laurent would be my first choice.

What have you learnt from the modelling industry?
Having spent some time in the industry I’ve learned more than I ever would have expected. It made me mature as a person, gave me opportunities and independence whilst travelling around the world. I’ve met so many incredible, talented and wonderfully weird people. I’ve learned how to be myself and be confident with it, and how to talk to people and make connections. This has proved invaluable to me in the film industry and other walks of life. …Also to never be late!

Your personal passion or hidden talents?
My personal passion is composition (in a vague sense) and the way different people have unique views on it. Whether it be art related or something personal, I think you can tell a lot about someone from the way they design a room, or choose an outfit. I’d like to think this composing images would be a hidden talent of mine but this of course depends on perspective.

How would you describe your style?
I Change my style pretty much weekly, it depends what mood I’m in. Some weeks I like to dress all black with graphic tees and chains, other weeks will happily wear harem pants and a poncho. I don’t like to subscribe to one style as it feels too limiting.

Who are your favourite designers?
As I mentioned before I look forward to the YSL collection each year. The first show I walked for was Craig Green, I was so impressed with his collection and he continues to surprise me. He is a designer who I hope to see keep pushing boundaries with his collections. I also adore Moschino for its mix of street and high fashion attire and Dior for its sheer beauty and grace.

What are your beauty essentials?
Water, exercise, vegetables. I am quite fortunate to have naturally clear skin, as long as I eat healthily and drink enough water I don’t break out. Exercise is so important for both mental and physical health and is always going to be essential.

Name three places that you want to travel to.
I am desperate to go to Tokyo, and it is one of the reasons I started modelling. Unfortunately I haven’t had the opportunity to go yet, but as soon as I have some time spare id like to model there for a couple of months. On my bucket list is the trans Siberian railway, id love to explore the vastness of the east and see the great Mongolian steppe. I have always been enchanted by tropical islands, I think island hopping around French Polynesia or Fiji would be near the top of my list.

What’s on your current playlist?
Having just got back from Boomtown and listening to new music I have an eclectic range of artists on my playlists. Ms Lauren Hill, Kate Tempest, Slaves, Foo fighters, Tash Sultana, Tame Impala, Rammstein heavily feature whilst I still have the odd throwbacks to some emo classics.

What are your future goals, dreams and plans?
After finishing uni I would like to take a gap year and work whilst travelling. I want to see the world whilst I’m young to shape my outlook, I intend on making films in each country I visit. I definitely want to continue modelling and do a contract in Tokyo, and spend some more time in the US. Long term I want to work as a cinematographer, hopefully on feature films.
