Up Coming Fashionista: Male Model Nick Hissom

Friday, April 8, 2011

I want to start introducing you all to the fierce new mavens making waves in the fashion world, enter the Up Coming Fashionista series. Models, photographers, designers and more...you will be sure to know the future of the fashion landscape. 


At New York Fashion Week, I met one male model that has major promise to match his dashing good looks. Nick Hissom is an up coming male model who is a true sweetheart. And as you can see here in his latest editorial a la GQ Italia, he knows his stuff when it comes to the male model world!

I love the behind the scenes of photo shoots, it shows you the hard work and true art that goes into the beautiful pictures that grace the pages of all our favorite glossies!

More than just a pretty face, Nick Hissom is actually juggling his male model career with his full time student career...at an Ivy! As an 18 year old college freshman, Nick divides his time between Philadelphia and New York...with the occasional trip home to England of course...that's right girls...he's British! Here's what Nick had to say about his busy life:

I strive under pressure and I hate being bored, so juggling modelling 
and an Ivy League education is fun, despite the hard work!

Being a male model is like being someone who lives in a mansion but borrowed all the money to buy it: people glamorize your lifestyle and forget about the harsh realities that come with the job. I like modeling because when you are at a shoot with the creative team, it's as if nothing else exists outside the studio and you can fully engulf yourself without any distractions-something I often find hard to do normally!

This Up Coming male model certainly has a grounded mentality and enthusiasm that will serve him well in the years ahead in the industry. And with such a cute smile as his, what girl wouldn't want to be flipping through her Vogue to pages of Nick?
