Show Card
Model: Linus Gustin
Agency: Ford Models Europe(NY)
Season: Spring/Summer 2011

As I wrapped up Bo‘s spotlight I began to feel just a tad guilty and very curious. To be a fashion blogger is a unique thing, and so when I mentioned Linus Gustin in passing I was assuming everyone knew who he was. As I read over the post I reconsidered my stance and decided that I should introduce you to the model who’s graced runways in Paris, Milan, Barcelona, and Sweden. The man is a certified runway beast, booking shows like Yves Saint Laurent, Z Zenga, and Prada continuously while bookending this year’s Victor & Rolf show(opening and closing). His campaign work is solid as well as his editorial work, which I feel is about to recieve a little spurt of growth. Known for his sharp cheekbones and cleft chin, Linus has a face that is not easily forgotten. Why don’t we take a closer look at it.

SHOWPACKAGE: Ford Paris Men SS11

So, why Ford Europe feels the need to have extra large photos for show packages? I’m not exactly positive but then again a larger card makes for more space to provide pictures for casting directors to pore over. And pore over I did! Releasing a package of 54 strong Ford Europe, as an agency, is BOUND to turn up at most shows(if not every one). Names like Abiah, Aiden Andrews, Charlie Westerberg, Francisco Lachowski, Michael Elmquist, Simon Nessman(OF COURSE!)and Vladmir Rotar are only a few that I want to read about during show times and when the campaigns eventually begin to drop.

Unwrap the package below the clip.
