LET'S PARTY LIKE IT IS 1984|WARREN GOURIN

















——————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|WARREN GOURIN

Name|Warren Gourin
Age|18
Hometown|Manhattan, New York City

How did you get discovered?
I never thought I'd be a model of any kind. My best friend Alex models and told me I had "A Look" so I went to his agency and I got signed!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was dedicated to school work, music and clothing. I'd hardly leave the house, so thank GOD for the opportunity!
People would be surprised to know that I...
am really shy. Many people expect me to be an extrovert, but I cannot hold a conversation for a minute.
What's your latest obsession?
Fashion...I follow it religiously.
Your most prize possession?
I have a literal rock that I took from the peak of Mountain Marcy, NY. It is New York's tallest mountain. I had to survive in a outdoorsy environment during a difficult time in my life, this hike gave me a lot of confidence and the rock reminds me of that period.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I always looked up to Stefan Burnett, Death Grips writer/vocalist. I have never been so inspired and pointed in a certain direction than by his lyrics.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
My mother, after picking up my puppy returning from Miami. I hadn't seen her for weeks prior to this.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Caring, Creative and Funny
Describe your personal style:
My look is so random, it's like a personality disorder with style. For parties, Fred Perry clothing only. Majority of the time, I say oversized street grunge.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Paris is such a beautiful city and the food is so great, but best of all is the clothing and French accents.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Interstellar—Scene: I love fashion but quantum physics is so interesting to me, the scene where they go into the tesseract and solve the key to human survival...it's pretty inspirational and I sob through the whole film.
Your favorite fashion designers:
Matt Williams' ALYX Studios: Same vision
Raf Simons: The inspiration
Gosha Rubchinskiy: Revolutionizing current street wear/high end blur
Vetements: Demma's oversized, conceptualized art and heavy graphics
Vintage Helmut Lang: The bondage pieces especially—so amazing in terms of construction.
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Manhattan, New York—We would hang out in SOHO because no matter what, we are bound to see other people with similar interests to link up with.
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
I want a talk show so badly. I feel like I have genuinely good things to say, to bring on guests and talk for an hour would a dream. Theme song: Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Craziest thing you ever done:
I went to a reform wilderness program for two and a half months with 12 other boys living in the absolute middle of nowhere. We wore bare minimum of what was legal for us to live under!
Your wish for 2016?
For a genuine opportunity to learn under my favorite designer and take in all that I can. To further expand my vision. I feel like this is important  and will set me up for a good career.
