River Interview for Sheer Magazine

River spent his youth in Spain and left school to become a model. He grew up around the industry as his mother was a model herself. When chatting to River it’s apparent he was keen to follow in his mother’s footsteps at the earliest opportunity. “As soon as I turned 18 I ditched school and went to London to give it a try. My mum told me it could work out for me; she used to be a model and knows about the industry so I decided to go for it.”
A brave move in such a competitive industry, it evidently paid off, demonstrating the confidence and determination which has undoubtedly played a factor in landing huge international jobs.Discussing the beginning of his career and the first major shoot he worked on, it seems that it wasn’t plain sailing from the outset “It was weird. It was a shoot for Vman with Nicola Formichetti and Hedi Slimane they had some problems shooting a celebrity; so our shoot was really rushed because they needed more time to finish their other story.”

Luckily for River his name and reputation have grown immensely and he is now more likely to be the celebrity being shot for which other models are side-lined. We chat through River’s shoot history and his favourite jobs to date.“The most fun shoot I have worked on was the CK One campaign ‘The Box’ which was actually too much fun!” Other jobs River lists as being memorable include the shoot for label and photography site bl33n with Donovan and Mathias Vriens-McGrath where he was dressed in drag for the first time.

A down to earth model that isn’t overwhelmed by working with big design labels, he openly talks about how comfortable he is ‘fooling around’ and just being his playful self around important fashion figures such as Italo Zucchelli, the menswear design director for Calvin Klein.

This may be because his passion doesn’t lie within designer clothes – which he professes to rarely wear, usually opting for casual skater attire. “I don’t really ever wear designer clothes if I do it would be YSL or Armani” This leads to conversation about River’s personal style which he laughs about. “Style? Do I have some of that? I’d call it casual, personal. I wear whatever I have handy and like at the time” It is almost admirable to be so nonchalant when working in an industry that is so much about how you look and what you wearing.

Clearly enjoying being a model and immensely proud of his achievements so far, River is also brutally honest about the drawbacks involved with the industry. He is candid about the fact that his life has changed and how he now rarely sees his loved ones, which is undoubtedly the downside to his glamorous high profile job. Despite this, he obviously recognises how lucky he is and dismisses the lows. “I don’t have time to be with my girlfriend, friends or family now.
But I work it out my way.” He describes home as his favourite place on earth and explains how he misses his family but has had to become accustomed to it.I imagine the travels to be a sacrifice many would be willing to make to become an international male model for Calvin Klein.Widely acknowledged as extremely active in social networking and giving back to his fans, River is fiercely enthusiastic about keeping in contact with the people who support him. He explains this as not only being an essential way to maintain his fan base, but also as a method of self preservation and promoting himself.

The principal way he attempts to do this is through his controversial blog ‘Never Back Down’ which he started to deny common myths about male modelling. When we discuss the blog, River clarifies that it was originally set up due to encouragement by his room mates in New York. Whilst writing is obviously a passion of his, he explains that it’s difficult to maintain with his busy schedule. “I love the blog but I haven’t had too much time to write.

That is why I started the vlogs” (That means video blogs for anyone technology shy). Due to his blogging, we ponder whether fashion writing is something River is considering as a future endeavour or potential career path, however we are shocked to learn that River’s other career interests lie in an industry vastly removed from fashion. “I’ve always been into investments as my dad used to be a broker.”

At the end of our conversation, River lets slip that he is working on a massive high profile job that is the most exciting campaign he has worked on to date. Unfortunately we cannot publish details of this, but watch this space, things are about to get even bigger for this young man.

Thank you for asking, zac! Yes, we are still allowed to post his pictures with Paris but we can't discuss any of their relationship whatsoever here. Those are belonged to the thread at the Rumor Has It section.

The same case with Behati & Adam here: http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f52...116983-45.html People just don't discuss them although there are pictures of them posted on her thread.

I know it's hard to not to comment on them but please understand the circumstances. We, the team, afraid that the discussion of his relationship will overshadowed the main reason the Supporting Cast thread is created, which is discussing a model's fashion career & style.

^Thank you Flashbang, you are always very helpful

I'll make a suggestion/special petition to all the memebers here:
Since nobody is supporting this relationship, could all the pics about this be posted on the "River and Paris relationship thread"? River has a lot of interesting work to come, like V Spain Mag with Maryna, Vogue Spain with Isabeli, Natasha & Eva by Testino, a campaign with Samantha Gradoville and other things, for me it will be very, very annoying all those paparazzi pics mixed with his work pics, and I think many people feel the same about it and I think many will unsuscribe, including myself. Hope all you guys consider my suggestion/petition.
Thanks.

^But Supporting Cast is for both Work and Personal Style and as long as the discussion regarding those pictures are related to him (i.e. what he's wearing or how he looks) then they are still allowed to be posted here, if a member isn't happy with who he is dating then they simply don't comment or comment in the appropriate thread in Rumor Has It, but thank you for the suggestion.

^Ok thanks Chanelcouture09, it was just a suggestion or special petition whatever people want to call it, let's see how this works in the future. Hopefully doesn't get really annoying.

well i - for one - welcome any and all candids in this thread. but let's be honest; none of us want to see them for his "style". haha. he dresses like any 15-year-old kid you'd see in the street.

i enjoy the candid pics with him and Paris, because it's enjoyable to look at him, in all his gorgeous glory.

i AM excited for all that editorial work you just listed, zac. River definitely ain't slowing down in his modeling endeavours. he's busy as ever and only getting better and better as far as i can tell.

^He did a lot more work like a month ago, so that is just some of all the amount of work he got. Looking forward for something exciting really soon.

I'm so surprised he's actually half Finnish, cause he's not looking like a Finn at all. Good for us though, he's probably the first successful male model who has Finnish routes.

He looks like he's so enjoying this new attention; great he'll not need to make strange faces anymore.
