Kashmiri Male Model To Make Debut On Paris Catwalks
Kalpurthala Heritage Times
Aamir Yaseen, a 24-year-old science graduate from Srinagar, will strut alongside world-renowned European models in some of the most prestigious Paris fashion shows this spring.
Yaseen is just one of the few models chosen by a major Paris fashion house to walk in their menswear show later this year. Yaseen has booked shows in Bangkok, Dubai, Mumbai, and even the U.S. brand Levi’s—all without any formal modeling training.
Despite having a knack for modeling, Yaseen says the decision to model full-time was not easy. In an interview he says, “There is a tough competition in Mumbai… models from all over India and abroad come there to try their luck. Looks do matter, but ultimately what matters is how many good contacts you have.”
And while Yaseen is just starting his modeling career, he says he hopes to break into the Bollywood film industry in the next few years.
