5 Minutes With Louis

7 January 2012

The lovely Louis at Storm answers our '5 Minutes With' interview and unsurprisingly, we now love him that little bit more for it. Louis shares some undeniable advise from his Mum and enlightens us with the contents of his fridge... don't mind if we do.

What are you up to at the moment?
I'm at Southampton University studying Management, but I get back to London when I can for jobs and castings. I did a shoot recently for models.com and am currently producing dance music and learning to DJ. I'm really into my music at the moment!

What inspires you and why?
I get inspired by the music I listen to, I love all music. The people around me inspire me, as well as reading about succesful models which keeps me trying to do my best in what I do.

What do you do when you're not working?
I study full-time, but I also listen to and produce music, spend time with my girlfriend and my family, and when I have any money I go and get drunk as much as possible.

Who would be your ultimate brand to work for?
I would love to do a Versace or Prada campaign if I could (in my dreams), but realistically I shop in Urban Outfitters, Topman and Asos and so any of those would be awsome to work for.

What's the best piece of advise you've ever had?
My mum always says "always try your best, that's all you can do" and I definitely believe that's true. I also think it's important to never forget who you are and that nobody should change that.

And finally, what would we find in your refridgorator?
You would find mange-tout, 3 Buds, some milk, an onion and 4 Activia snackpots. I'm living the high life....

10 points for the healthy mange-tout and Activia, we'll take a Bud thanks Louis!
