The Wardrobe Diary: Industry Insider

The Wardrobe Diary: Industry Insider

What does an industry insider wear when he’s off duty? We spent some time with Ashton Gohil, a London-based model and musician, to find out.

We learned a couple of things about Gohil during our time spent with the model-come-DJ. Once the face of Stone Island, Balmain (as in the IRL French fashion house) now follows him on social media. The casual trappings of life as a model. In his other life, Gohil forms one half of DJ and production duo “AUDI0comingS00N” – their first EP is due in January. He’s been grafting in the studio between shoots so expect tunes defined by a deep appreciation of music and fashion, with a few slick artist collaborations thrown in the mix. A fixture of the runways, Gohil has walked for Neil Barratt, Philipp Plein and Balmain, bagging himself some seriously desirable threads and street-style cred along the way. His first big break was walking for Dolce & Gabbana back in 2015. Since then his diary has been pretty hectic.

Here, Gohil talks us through his average weekly routine. Featuring clothes by Gucci, Off White and Moncler.

MONDAY

“For me, Monday is a fresh start, so if I'm not shooting or in the studio, I'll be doing a weekly shop then hitting up the gym. I’ll normally grab a coffee on the way. Black Americano, no milk. I’m a creature of habit. After that I’ll maybe swing by the agency to see how my week is looking. Preparation is key.”

TUESDAY

“Things start to get busy as I get into the week – everything is last minute in this industry. You can get a call one evening to say that you're flying first thing in the morning, so you have to be on the ball. A few Tuesdays ago I got cast for a big shoot, so had to be prepped and ready to fly last minute to be on set for Wednesday morning. I’ll wear my travelling essentials – always sneakers and a tracksuit.”

WEDNESDAY

“I tend to get my hair cut pretty regularly. Got to look sharp. My barbers is in Soho and my favourite Italian restaurant is around the corner so I’ll treat myself. Then straight to the gym to work off the carbs. In the evenings I’ll meet up with friends. I’m really into film, so you’ll often find me at the local cinema when I have an evening spare.”

THURSDAY

“I normally try and get a few studio sessions in a week. I'm part of production duo “AUDI0comingS00N”. It's me and another guy that I met on the modelling circuit. We're just wrapping up our debut EP and a short film. Even when I’m exhausted after being on set, I’ll make some time for the studio. Even if that means being there from six pm to the early hours of the morning after a day of shooting.”

FRIDAY

“Fridays are basically the weekend! I’ll always try and get a gym class in before things kick off. I go to Gymbox – they run great classes. I normally try to do the MMA class which is a lot of sparring and leg work – it gets the adrenaline pumping. From there I’ll head back home to get ready for a night out.”
