MDC: When did you first find out all the details about the presentation?

Brendan: My booker emailed me a few weeks before Milan Fashion Week and said that Band of Outsiders had a special request. It ended up being pretty special.

MDC: What was your thought process like in deciding to do the presentation?

Brendan: It was fast. I had just woken up when I read the email. I thought Scott was cool and I had never been to Paris before, so I said yes. And I had just quit a really physical nine-to-five job so I thought it would be easy.

MDC: What was the other job?

Brendan: The other job was tree-planting. I was getting tired of modeling in New York so I decided to take some time off and go tree-planting with my brothers. It was a really humbling experience and it gave me a new perspective on life and the opportunities that I had modeling. So after a month I decided that I wanted to go back and do Milan Fashion Week and that was that.

MDC: Did you have plans to come to Paris Fashion Week before you booked the Band of Outsiders show?

Brendan: I just came for Band of Outsiders. I hadn’t done Paris Fashion Week until now. I don’t have an agency here. I’m happy I didn’t have to run around to any castings.

MDC: You’ve worked with Band of Outsiders and designer Scott Sternberg before. Did you and Scott get a chance to talk about this show before you started?

Brendan: Yes we did. We spoke on Skype a few weeks before the show and went over everything. He said it wasn’t going to be too serious and that I could do it. Thanks Scott. I did it!

MDC: What did you do to pass the time?

Brendan: I took naps, usually in the looks that had sunglasses. I read a book that Scott gave me called Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut, which I liked a lot. I also drew pictures, took photographs, and painted all of the protesting signs in my compartment with the stencils they gave me. I really took my time and did a good job. They were aligned and centered perfectly and had the same color schemes as the quotation marks on the pins and in the collection.

MDC: Did you have any interesting encounters with people outside?

Brendan: I did actually. Someone mooned me. I was trying to get to sleep one night and these people kept banging on the glass. When I finally looked up someone was mooning me. I don’t think he knew that he was participating in a live stream. Also a stranger asked me out via email and wouldn’t stop emailing me. I made it so that their emails go straight to my spam folder. Stranger things could have happened.

MDC: What did you miss the most during the show?

Brendan: I’m not sure. My bed? Showering? Privacy. I didn’t miss too much. It was only three days and I had it pretty good in my compartment. I read a news article that said I was eating instant noodle soup, which is false. I ate takeout French food for every meal and drank beer with my dinner. They spoiled me. I almost didn’t want to leave.
