Finn Buchanan’s dream world

The blue-haired London Model, 19, on Mötley Crüe, silk pirate shirts and always asking for what you want.

What is happiness to you?

I want to do every Fashion Week in every city and open and close every single show, men’s and women’s.

Who’s the most famous person you’ve met?

I met Naomi Campbell and I threw up immediately after because I was so starstruck.

What’s your favourite item of clothing right now?

I got myself a vintage Mötley Crüe T‑shirt off eBay and it smells like whiskey and sweat.

How do you indulge yourself?

I really enjoy going to restaurants that have dress codes and operating within them in as unique a way as I can. You can’t wear trainers or jeans, but they didn’t say you can’t wear a silk pirate shirt.

Who do you admire?

I admire the Black trans women who fronted the gay liberation movement in America.

Do you have a catchphrase?

I admire the Black trans women who fronted the gay liberation movement in America.

Do you collect anything?

Tattoos.

Three words to describe yourself?

Emo, stoner, twink… Straight-twink. Which confuses everyone, including me.

What advice would you like to pass on to the rest of the world?

Ask for what you need. I don’t know how I ever expected things to happen without asking for them. Vocalising what you want from people or life is so important.
