Danish male model Andreas Floistrup got discovered during a party and got signed by the biggest agency in Scandinavia, Le Management!
Current location: Denmark
Tell us about your career as model. How did you get started?
I went to a fashion party with one of my friend who was a model for Le Management. At the party, he introduced me to some of the people from the agency, and they asked me if I also was a model. I said no, and they told me to come by the office, so they could take some photos of me. Then one thing led to the other. It was a strange feeling, because I never thought about becoming a model. But I kind of just rode with it, and then they ended up signing me.
Please tell us a bit more about your mother agency.
My mother agency is Le Management, which’s the biggest in Scandinavia with offices in both Denmark and Sweden.
What do you enjoy most of your profession?
You meet a lot of friendly and kind people where ever you go.
How would you describe a model life?
Do you think models are able to find long lasting friendships within the industry today?
Were you on the runway during Fashion Week this year? If yes, where and for which designer?
No, I wasn’t.
What is your favorite thing to do when not working?
I’m studying journalism besides modelling, so that takes up most of my time. Besides that I love to play and watch basketball and do cross fit.
Take us through a typical day in the life of Andreas.
I wake up in the morning and eat a good meal for breakfast – typically skyr (healthy yogurt) – while watching the news on tv and checking up on the results from then nights NBA games. Then I take a shower and head out the door for school. When I get home from school/studying I eat a second light lunch and chill out for half an hour before reading up on some homework. Then in the night I either go work out, meet up with some friends, or go to basketball practice. Then when I get home I eat dinner while watching the news. And then I got to bed.
How do you keep your body in good shape?
I play basketball, I do cross fit, I eat balanced healthy food and lots of fruit.
What’s your favorite place in the world?
It must be Copenhagen. But I also love Israel and San Francisco, and Amsterdam. Israel is beautiful and one of the most underrated countries when it comes to what you can experience. And San Francisco is just San Francisco – romantic, diverse and a lot of cool things to see. My girlfriend lives in Amsterdam, and it’s just one of the most romantic and lovely cities I’ve ever been to!
Give us 3 fun facts people might not know about you yet.
I wanna do documentaries or kids television when I finish my journalism education, I love to dance when I go out and I can easily stay up all night watching basketball from NBA.
What do you think MODELLIST-ID can do for the model community?
I think it’s a good community for models. It gives us a chance to meet other models, and get goo tips about what to see in different cities.
Do you have any model friend you would like to see presented on Modellist-ID?
