OSCAR KOTTING-MCMILLAN: Q&A

London Fashion Week Mens is upon us, and we thought what better way to kick it off than chatting with some of our newest faces ahead of their first season in London! #LFWM

First Stop: The delightful Oscar Kotting-McMillan 

 

Age: 20 

Nationality: English 

Hometown: St Leonards On Sea, which is a small seaside town near Eastbourne

How were you discovered?

I was scouted in Brighton after watching a football game with some friends

Did you ever think you could be a model? 

No not at all, it is something a family friend said that I could do, but I always took it with a pinch of salt until I was scouted

How excited are about your first season in London?

Very excited - it is going be a really amazing experience :)

What makes Oscar tick? 

Family and Sport. They are the two things that make me happiest in life 

Dream vacation?

That's way too hard to decide as there are so many places that I would love to go to! The idea of doing a road trip somewhere like Asia or South America would be amazing, as their culture is so different to things that I have experienced 

Your biggest challenge?

When I moved away from home at the age of 16 to live by myself in South London to pursue a career in football. It was a little bit of a culture shock, living in a new area and having to fend for myself

Most treasured possession?

My Grandmother's gold chain

Favourite Designer?

Fred Perry

Couldn't live without?

Exercise!!! 

Currently on your playlist?

I listen to a bit of anything, at the moment I like Jamie XX's album Colour - it is constantly on repeat

What makes you smile? 

Cards Against Humanity. It appeals to my dark sense of humour 

Most recent purchase? 

A second hand original Barracuda coat!

Fave movie / TV show of all time?

I have got two, This is England and Peaky Blinders

Ultimate Style Icon?

Cillian Murphy in Peaky Blinders, he just looks so classy

Biggest inspiration in life and why?

My mum. Seeing the work ethic she has to provide for my family, and seeing the things that she does for other people to make them happy

Currently reading?

Mo Farah's Twin Ambitions. I love reading autobiographies of successful people in any walk of life. There are so many talented people in the world, but the ones that are at the top of their game with their mind set and attitude really appeal to me. I like finding out what separates people from being good at something, to being great

Biggest fear?

Definitely heights, I am terrible with them!

Obsessed with right now? 

Planet Earth II. I have just ordered Blue Planet and the original Planet Earth from Amazon 

Sum yourself up in three words? 

Big, Friendly, Giant

Tell us a secret…

I am a bit of a hoarder. I have lots of photo albums at home, and old souvenirs. I find them a perfect way to remind myself of different experiences
