Tattooed model Cole Mohr was born on April 27, 1986. His birth town is Houston, Texas. However, just as numerous models, he moved to New York even before he was recruited. His dream was never to be a fashion model, but to become a fashion designer. He is currently working on achieving his goal.
Cole Mohr never intended to become a fashion icon, but he didn’t refuse his first appearance for Dior Homme’s ad campaign in 2006. Since then, he is among Hedi Slimane’s favorites and David Sims’s too. In 2007, he travels in Milan to walk for Burberry, Prada, Fendi and J.Lindeberg. Being featured as a Top Newcomer in July 2007 brings him deals with Alexander Wang and H&M. The following years are fruitful for Cole Mohr. He stars in the spring Comme des Garçons show in Paris and he also closes Number (N) ine. Unusual enough, he becomes the male and the female face for Marc by Marc Jacobs. He opens and closes fashion shows in Paris, Milan and New York in the following years and appears in Italian Vogue, Black Book and W editorials.
Since 2007, Cole Mohr’s career as a fashion model bloomed. He is appreciated for his looks, his attitude and his special way of reinventing himself for every photo shoot. He closes the fall for Lanvin Homme’s show in Paris and appears on the cover of Dansk, spring edition. Vogue Homme and Numero Homme contract him for editorials. Photographers such as Juergen Teller, Glen Luchford, Darren Keith, Steven Meisel and Alasdair McLellan work with him from 2008 to 2011. In January 2009, he becomes the face for Costume National. He continues to be a fashion symbol. He signs with Request Model Management New York, Bananas in Paris, d1 Model Management in London and Bon Image Corp in Tokyo.
As far as Cole Mohr’s fashion designer career develops, it has a shy start, but it looks very promising. In one of his interviews, he states that Kim Jones encourages him to pursue his dream. In fact, he has designed shoes for one of Kim Jones’s shows. Joe McKenna is another person who sees potential in Cole Mohr’s career as a designer. McKenna hired him to get creative and come up with designs for t-shirts for Quest magazine. This Texan model has an entire sketchbook of ideas that he plans on using sometime in the future.
Cole Mohr thinks of himself as an artist and he is very discrete about his love life. Even so, it is known that he is involved in a relationship with Stella Greenspan, who is a stylist from Zurich. He doesn’t treasure material things. He appreciates his friends and people who love him. He is very fond of his little brother. A fan of dogs and medium rare stakes, Cole Mohr used to live on a boat in Mexico for about 12 months at some point in time.
