This week, the lovely Tommy Kristiansen from Elite took some time out from his travels to chat to Wonderland online.
How did you become a model?
I was scouted on the streets in Gothenburg. They asked me to come in to the agency the following Monday, at first I thought it was weird, but decided to give it a try and got signed that day.
What were you doing before modelling?
I was going to a musical theatre school in Gothenburg. I left to give modelling a chance.
What do you like to do when you’re not modelling?
I like to be at home with my family and friends and going out to parties. When I’m in Norway I stay at my father’s home and I also have family in Sweden. It’s hard to see them though as I’m travelling all the time.
What type of music do you like?
I like most music; dubstep, rock and hip-hop…
What shows did you walk in last season?
I didn’t do shows, as I was booked for a campaign in New York.
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Tokyo, it’s the best. It’s amazing, everything works and everything is organised but fun.
What’s your favourite place to hang out in London?
When the weather’s nice, I enjoy hanging out in parks with my friends. I like Camden Town, it’s a really cool place to walk around.
What’s your favourite item of clothing?
I like to chill in my XXL big grey track pants.
What’s been your favourite fashion moment so far?
I enjoyed the Louis Vuitton show and campaigns are always fun. I also like doing location shoots, as it’s like going on a little trip.
What would you like to do in the future?
I would like to stay in this business a little while longer, make some money and try and get into acting or open up a kebab place back home.
