Interview with Guido Quarcoopome

How were you scouted? 
I put up a picture on instagram and my friend showed it to John at PRM and the rest is history. Within a month I was in Milan working for Versace.

Talk me through an average day in the life of you? 
Wake up at about 9ish generally, hot shower then have breakfast, always cereal, I'm a sucker for kelloggs Frosties. Find out what I have planned for the day, check a bunch of technology websites, I'm of a geek like that. Hit the gym for an hour or so, watch a film, and in the evening I tend to go out for a catch up with some mates. I like routine and living without dramas.

What would you say is your best feature? 
My cheekbones, a gift from my father.

What do you enjoy most about modelling? 
Being able to meet so many new people and being put in different and amazing situations each day.

As you mentioned, you recently walked as an exclusive for Versace in Milan.  That must have been fun? 
Yea it was incredible, my first big show and I really loved it, I was buzzing for days afterwards. The people were really nice and welcoming considering I'm new to all this. I had a great time, and got to meet Donatella, so I really have no complaints.

What is your dream modelling job? 
To be the first mixed raced person to do a high fashion collection shoot for a brand as big as Versace.

Which song would you most like to hear whilst walking down the runway?
Probably a decent afrobeats song: 'Million Pound Girl' by Fuse ODG.

How do you keep in shape? 
An hour or so in the gym 3 times a week like my life depends on it. Power walking wherever I go and I play football and badminton when I can.

What do you think makes for a good male model? 
To be honest I don't really know, I think it comes down to being professional, having a good attitude, being personable and having a good team behind you for support. That certainly helped me.

If you weren't modelling, what would you be doing instead? 
Working as a physiotherapist and trying to get into medical school to become a surgeon.

How do you like your eggs in the morning? 

A guilty pleasure you can't seem to quit? 
Seeing how long I can hold eye contact for with strangers on the tube. I went for 3 stops once it got so awkward.

Which item of clothing in your closet gets most wear and why?
Plain black t-shirt, I can't go wrong wearing it, it's simple and understated perfect for me.

Your favourite kind of pie? 

What is the last white lie you told your booker?
I have no clue, I don't have that kind of relationship with my booker, I don't need to tell him lies.

What was the best thing that happened to you today?
I found a fiver in my pocket, touch.

Thanks Guido!
