black male models take center stage at calvin klein
by Jeremy Danté
represented by request model management, david agbodji appeared three times on the runway for calvin klein’s menswear runway showcase. in addition to agbodji landing the brands SS10 campaign, he appeared as an exclusive for the american fashion brand & closed the FW10 runway show. in an effort to broadcast black models in the industry, this is an amazing feat. not only does david look completely stunning in the campaign, he looks dope on the runway as well. also appearing in representation for the request model agency was kadeem; seen above in a white on white look, i immediately started asking around for a model ID after seeing him walk. as reported by request models, kadeem was also cast as an exclusive for the brand, which is another amazing mark of progression for male models of color. to see that a major american brand of the calvin klein scope is enlisting african americans as exclusives makes me incredibly happy. look out for both kadeem & david throughout the rest of the year editorially & commercially. & be real, you cannot deny that kadeem looks good.
