The Fashion Law – How old are you and what's your nationality?
Elliott Vulloid – I'm 22 and I'm French.
The Fashion Law – Where were you scouted?
Elliott Vulloid – Twice at a party and once I was chilling with friends in London and a girl came up to me asking if I’d be interested in modeling. Finally I said yes!
The Fashion Law – Business today is so much about branding do you feel like models are brands?
Elliott Vulloid – I don't think so. A lot of people are working hard on their fashion companies and spending so many hours, and I think they are brands. For me, models are just representing them.
The Fashion Law – How do you think you are different from other models?
Elliott Vulloid – I don't feel really different from other models. I mean each of us is doing something else other than just modeling (I am studying graphic design). So, we all have a different kind of life but in terms of modeling, I think we are more or less all doing the same things.
The Fashion Law – What did you think of modeling before you got started?
Elliott Vulloid – I've never really thought about modeling before starting it. I had no idea about what was goin on in the fashion world or the modeling industry.
The Fashion Law – What was your first big modeling job?
Elliott Vulloid – It was the runway show for Dior in June 2012.
The Fashion Law – Do you think there are any downsides to modeling?
Elliott Vulloid – I think there are downsides like in all jobs. Sometimes its hard because you work long hours. You have wake up really early and get back really late. Also, when you are moving and traveling a lot, you can't see your old mates and things like that, but most of the time I have fun and everybody is cool. So, its nice!
The Fashion Law – Is there a particular designer or design house that you absolutely want to work with?
Elliott Vulloid – No, I don't think so. I don't really know.
The Fashion Law – You had a really successful season this past June.
Elliott Vulloid – Yes. I did 21 shows and a catalog for Balmain. So, yes I'm pretty happy about this season.
The Fashion Law – What do you like to do when you're not traveling/working?
Elliott Vulloid – I keep traveling for music and to see my friends.
The Fashion Law – Traveling for music? Are you in a band?
Elliott Vulloid – No, I'm not. Some of my friends are djing and producing. I think I will too in a bit but for now I'm just enjoying it! I love to go in other countries with my mates to see artists we like. Because there is not a lot of dnb in france and because its so cool to go out, know where to go or discover new places when you are somewhere else. And music line ups are clearly sick outside France.
The Fashion Law – Where do you see yourself in the next several years?
Elliott Vulloid – This is The question actually.
The Fashion Law – What are you obsessed with right now?
Elliott Vulloid – Music - As soon as I get free time I like to chill out with my friends. We go to exhibitions, raves or just listen to music most of the time. I don’t like routine. I aways like do new stuff.
