Name: Dylan Fender
Age: 18
Hometown: Palo Cedro, California

How did you get discovered?
I was getting a haircut and my hair dresser's assistant mentioned her photographer's friend, who shoots models, would probably want to shoot me. Incidentally, I have taken up an interest in runway and fashion recently. Initially, it sounds sketchy but thought I didn't have much to loose, so she sent a photo of me to the photographer, Haley and she organized a shoot date for me. Haley turned out to be a lovely photographer. It was my first time in front of the camera and even though I have no clue what I was doing, I totally felt comfortable. She mentioned I was pretty good for my first time and asked what agency I was with. I told her I didn't have one so I mentioned an agency I'd like to be sign with. Immediately, Haley send a photo she took of me to NIYA, the owner of NIYA Models Management and Niya sent me an email the next day organizing a meeting and I got signed right away!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Before I was a senior in high school, I started working at Bastille, which is this local boutique that fashion nerds work at. It's my teen dream job besides modeling!
People would be surprised to know that I...
am a total internet kid with a computer addiction. If I wasn't at school, I will be playing games. I used to have a really bad social anxiety as well. I think it is hilarious that I end up where I am now, meeting countless of people daily. I feel like 70% of modeling is networking and I used to have nervous sweats one meeting a new person or talking to strangers.
What's your latest obsession?
Last time I'm obsessed over something, it was a pair of shoes. It's super basic but I fell in love with these Rick Owens Ramones sneakers. I saved for a bit and find a nylon pair for $400. It's probably the most I ever pay for a pair of sneakers. Maybe one day I plan on reselling them but I tend to get attached to things due to sentimental value, it's not always healthy.
Your most prize possession?
I have this little silver meteorite I bought at a gem fair when I was super young. I used to always play with it, believing there's magic powers to it. It was a catalyst to hours of imagination and fun, and I still have it in my safe at home. It reminds me of when I was young.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I always look up to my dad. The man is almost perfect I swear. As a businessman, the dude is sharp and as a family man, I could not ask for a more caring and supportive influence.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
I say I love you to so many people. I feel fortunate with those I choose to surround myself with. If it is a significant other, it will take a lot longer to feel the urge to say it. I believe the last person I said I love you to was my very good friend, my kindred spirit, he is going through a tough time right now and I reminded him that I will always be around for support and I love him. It's good to express that to people if you mean it.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Textural (Tactile), Enthusiastic and Tongue-In-Cheek
My friend Kieran said: Blithe, Aesthetic, Sagacious
Describe your personal style:
Lovely colors, comfortable fabrics, soft and tactile textures (NO Polyester!)
Your favorite place you have travel to:
I've been too many places but if I have to choose, Utah is absolutely lovely and reminds me of the northwest. Portland is a recent favorite, the people are incredibly nice and has to be the perfect amount of cultural happenings and massive trees.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
American Psycho freaks me out! Patrick Bateman is one of the most unsettling characters he so not human but I love the business card scene. It feels human and I related to it so much.
Your top five favorite designers:
Acne Studios—Comfort, great fabrics, colors and fit. I don't like how they moved production to China though!
Boris Bidjan Saberi—His eleven collection is one of my favorite street wear lines. Great tech wear influence, great flow in the fabric, most comfortable!
Dior (Under Raf Simons)—So ethereal! It is this lovely interpretation of Dior elegance through Raf's eyes. He just left which makes me sad but I absolutely loves his designs.
Vetements—I know they are essentially making fashion a post-ironic joke but that is very me as a person. I love their attitude and designs. They are brilliant and they simultaneously don't care and do.
Christian Carol Poell—His designs just send me chills and moves me to my core and I like that about him. His designs always feels otherworldly without trying too hard.
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?
Palo Cedro, California—To my home then off hiking or camping. Not because I love camping but it's something Utah offers that's absolutely great or we can go boating or hang out at a café. The Utah Contemporary Art Museum is absolutely a killer so we will definitely need to go there first!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
OK here's my TV pitch: It's a show kind of like a talk show except it's just me and a guest watching TV and that's it! Imagine watching a movie within a show with Kevin Spacey or Jack Nicholson and talking about it. Theme song would be noise rock for like five seconds along with color flashing slowly then the calm TV watching TV show starts.
Craziest thing you ever done:
I don't really do crazy, like it comes off as reckless. I feel like if you're doing something consider crazy by others and it hurts or inconvenience no one, it's not really crazy. Crazy is like yelling at people, hurting others...
Your wish for 2016?
One wish to know something useful like how do you stop entropy!

A Model Home: Dylan Fender

Where are you from?
I'm from Palo Cedro, California. A lovely town with a population of around 1,000 people, in Northern California.
Tell us about your apartment now - what neighborhood and how long have you lived here?
I'm staying with some friends of mine, in East Williamsburg/Bushwick. I've been staying here off and on since June of this year. It's mostly empty, we've only just began to decorate.
Favorite restaurant in your neighborhood? Favorite store? Favorite bar?
Roberta's Pizza is down here, I think it's alright. My friends also really like the falafel place close by, but I can't remember the name. Favorite store in the neighborhood? I often shop at Brooklyn Natural, but I've started to just head to Trader Joe's instead. However, Lantern Hall by the apartments is rad as hell, and one of my favorite bars. Super roomy, great food, and they constantly have Mario Kart 64/Smash Bros Melee in the back.
What is your morning routine like?
-Wake up two hours before any appointment/casting.
-Take it easy, get out of bed 30 minutes after waking up
-Cook up some eggs or eat some granola
-Shower and shave
-Wear the outfit I chose for myself the night prior.
-Map the destination and head out.
Do you have roommates? What do they do?
The people I live with all go to FIT. They're absolutely lovely. Two of them are photo majors, and the other is in marketing.
What do you love most about living in NYC?
The amount of things to do, and the amount of things that happen.
What do you love most about your apartment?
It's on the same block as an L train, and I didn't realize how huge of a blessing that was to my stress-levels, and timing.
What Zodiac sign are you?
Leo
Any nicknames?
I'm often called Dyl by loved ones and those close to me, or Fender by work-friends.
If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
I can't think of any historical figure currently, but I sure would love to have dinner with my grandfather again.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Coming to NYC, and carving a fast-track to adulthood.
How do you like to spend a rainy day?
Indoors, preferably with some nice reading material or a nice album to relax to.
What's your spirit animal?
Awe, man I don't know. An elk? I'd like to think that, anyway. I asked two of my close friends independent of each other, and they both coincidentally said, "a big cat." One said a Panther, then other said a Puma. I thought that was kind of lovely.
Biggest vice?
I would say I am slowly growing out of my terrible habit of procrastination. I've always struggled with just doing things, but in the past year I have started to realize how liberating it feels to just get things done.
What's your favorite late night snack?
Since my childhood, I've always prepared cereal or oatmeal at night for a quick meal. I'm doing my best to deviate from it, but it's just too filling and quick. Although after I've brushed my teeth at night, water is the only thing I will have~
If you could change the world, how would you do it?
I think one small step at a time. Treat people kindly, leave a pleasant experience. Maybe that will influence others to do the same.
Favorite color, and why?
I've always been in love with the color green, in its deeper hues. It feels serene, it feels good. Have you ever been in love?
I'm not entirely sure what love is supposed to feel like, but I am sure that what I currently feel is certainly the closest I've ever been to truly feeling love for another person. I feel fortunate to be able to feel this way. We will see where it takes me.
Describe your style?
It depends on location. I only pack a few things on my journeys from home. Usually 5 black shirts, black jeans and two pairs of shoes. Along with nightly clothing. I know it's boring, but it helps keep my luggage light. Back home I have more freedom with my clothing choices. I thrift often, mixing thrift-finds with pricier pieces I've saved for. As much as I love black in New York or abroad, I love colors a bit more when I am back home. I have a quilted red and pink coat I wear often, along with my lovely peach-embroidered pink hat. Awe man I'm sorry this is a bit long, I suppose my style would be..confident and comfortable. See, it would be way too vague if I started with that.
Favorite place you've ever traveled and why?
I really enjoyed traveling Germany. I suppose it was mainly because I traveled with my father along the countryside, and had become closer with him there. I'd say the California-Oregon coast is a close second. That is the most beautiful trip I have had the pleasure of traveling.
Where would you like to travel to?
I would really enjoy taking a trip to Vancouver next. I heard it's quite pleasant there.
Favorite song to dance to?
Gobbledigook by Sigur Ros, or Who Could Win a Rabbit by Animal Collective.
Describe your happy place:
There is this hike in Utah, and not far up it is this river that runs through some boulders. If you travel off of the trail you can find two large boulders that are perfect to rest on and eat a snack and watch the trees sway. I don't think I've ever been in a mood that wasn't happy when I am there.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Okay, I was going to say mind-control because you could get soo many things done, but I think I'd feel too bad removing people's free-will. Maybe have extreme luck or something. Same thing but you're playing with chance instead of people.
Favorite movie?
The first movie I remember sticking with me was Toto le Héros. I caught it on tv one night and I'm really happy I did. I don't watch enough good movies though. My friend Reid is a huge cinephile and it makes me want to critically watch actually great films.
Tell us about your first kiss:
It's such a boring story. I had a pseudo-girlfriend in middle school, and she pecked me on the lips in art class. I almost wish I had a cute amazing story about it, but once it happened it felt like a checkmark off of my adolescent bucket-list.
Favorite model of all-time?
Awe man, easy. Kieran Jarvis. Before I became I model I'd see him all over ssense.com and he was like, THE Ssense model. I think I bought a few items that he modeled. He's got a pretty iconic look, A year later he became one of my closest friends in NYC.
Who would you most like to work with?
I would love to work with Olivier Rizzo again. I worked with him previously for the Prada show, and he was absolutely lovely as well as incredibly talented.
What's your fashion dream or goal?
My dream has already been quite accomplished many times over. I just wanted to walk in a show! Besides financial and relationship goals in relation to fashion, I don't really have one. Is that bad? This isn't the type of industry where hard work is the sole factor of success. So I do my best at each show, editorial, job etc that I get. I'm more stoked about my job when I have no expectations.
