Cole Mohr... Mohr Mohr

On being a model…
“I didn't want to be a model because I didn't also want to be a hooker [laughs]. But I was homeless in New York and like, ‘Alright, either I’m going to get paid to be a piece of meat, or I'm not going to be paid to be a piece of meat.’ Sometimes I feel guilty, like I’m living somebody else’s dream, because I never gave a **** about being a fashion symbol. But…life is good.”

Where a label wouldn't fit

My flatmate Jake has style sense which is so intriguing, interesting and simply only his own that I often have to ask if I can photograph what he's wearing. Quite possibly one of my favourite dressed male friends he never ceases to surprise. Sometimes simplistic, occasionally donning a hat, rolled up trouser hems... I couldn't label Jakes look as anything specific as a label just won't fit, he has an individual street style.

"I generally love them" - Gareth Thomas

When you see a striking pair of shoes, you almost always have to have a double look. Whether it's women or men however, seeing my lecturer wearing these was quite a shock to the extent I had to photograph them for my blog. Gareth (my lecturer) told me "I wanted a pair of two-tone brogues and finally found them in Dune". This classical pair of brogues are a timeless style and Gareth snatched them half price for £60. When I asked Gareth how he feels about these shoes he sums it up with a simple statement "I generally love them".

Portobello Rd

This striking shop window is a vintage shop on Portobello Rd before you reach the market. It's literally vintage heaven with rails and cases containing the best in designer vintage. Unfortunately prices are non-negotiable but they will reserve an item for you so you have time to get the money off a parent, partner or very lovely friend.
