#735 Cole Mohr - "I didn’t want to be a model because I didn’t also want to be a hooker"

Something I've wanted to see for quite some time - an interview with Cole Mohr. NYLONGUYS took on's number 17 boy in their latest issue, and here's what he had to say for himself.

On modelling:
“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 shit about being a fashion symbol. But…life is good.”

The end goal:
“The intention was always to be a designer. Kim Jones has been really supportive of me. He let me design shoes for one of his shows. And Joe McKenna hired me to do these t-shirts for Quest magazine. I feel like it’s a dream I can realize…I’ve also been pretentious enough to call myself an artist long before I was a model. I have a big old book full of fucking awesome ideas, so my biggest goal is to commit to making tangible work.”
