William Cooper – The Dapper Model

Say hello to William :


Where are you from?  Where have you been?

I am from Burton Upon Trent, England. I have traveled to many different places in the world! I’ve been to Milan, Fuerteventura, South Africa, the Caribbean, and New York.

What’s your favorite place in the world?

My favourite place in the world is Italy because I love the beautiful scenery and the rich history of the country. What I love most about Italy is the fashion and how different and creative it is.


Tell us about your apprenticeship with Toni and Guy. What are your plans for after?

After working two years at Toni and Guy, I will get my qualifications and I would like to move to London and work at a Toni and Guy there. Hopefully after time, I can work towards becoming a manager and buying into my own business.

What sparked your interest in hair and fashion?

My interest in hair and fashion came to me when I started to grow my hair. After that period, I would try different styles with my hair. My fashion started when I bought my first designer t-shirt, which at the time I loved. After time, I started trying different cloths with different styles of hair, which made me different in how I presented myself to others through my style.

How did you get started in modeling?

The idea of me modeling first came into my head when I got scouted in London – at the time, I was only 15, so I wasn’t really interested in it until I was 17. When I started to think about it, my family and friends would always say that I would make a good model, so I took up the idea and never look back since.

What three fashion designers would you love to collaborate with?

Firstly, I’d love to collaborate with Donatella Francesca Versace; secondly, Guccio Gucci; and thirdly, Christian Louboutin. I’d love to collaborate with these three fashion designers because they are my favourite designers and I believe they have the most unique fashion look of them all.

What’s your favorite picture of yourself?

My favourite photo of me has too be these three, which Fredrick Weight took. The first picture was captured a couple months back; as for the other two, they were captured a year back ago.




What was your most embarrassing situation while modeling?

One of my most embarrassing situations while modeling was when I was doing a video shoot and I tripped over and fell as I was walking.

Modeling is very competitive.  How do you stand out?

The way I stand out in modeling is how I think; modelling to me isn’t having the best looks, the best body, or the best teeth. For me, modeling is how creative and different you can be from others – ways that make you stand out from your differences.

Who has had the biggest influence on your modeling career?

The biggest influence on my modeling career will have to go to my friends and family for all the support they have given me along the way, because without them, I wouldn’t have even of thought of doing modeling. In a way, they have created a part of my future for me, and for that, I will always be grateful.

What do you like most about modeling?

What I like most about modeling is that I’m able to express myself – being able to do what I know feels the best. Also, being creative with clothes and seeing my imagination and fantasies come to life is rewarding.

What do you want people to remember about you after a shoot?

After a shoot, I like people to remember me by how well I performed or just how I am as a person.

If you could model anywhere in the world, where would you go?

If I could model anywhere in the world, it would be Whitehaven Beach, Australia, because I think it is one of the most beautiful places in the world, especially the scenery of the ceramic blue ocean.

What’s one of your biggest fears?

One of my biggest fears in life is getting stuck in an elevator and not being able to get out.  

What do you think is your best feature?

I think my best feature has to be my facial structure.
