LA Fashion week is getting bigger and bigger every season and last year with the mayor Eric
Garcetti making a big push for the city to get behind fashion week, it was the largest attended
fashion week in LA history.
This season the buzz is even bigger and no male model is hotter with buzz than Super model
Sam Sarpong. After over a decade in the fashion industry with some of the biggest campaigns
for designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s, Ben Sherman, Jean Philippe, Ed Hardy, just to
name a few, Sarpong is now hotter than ever.
Last year he received the Icon Fashion Award at the Beffta’s in the UK. He was also named by
Men’s Style Fashion magazine as it’s “Star of the Year”. He is also still the only model to ever
have a statue in the prestigious California African American Museum.
This season Sam will start his fashion week schedule by being the celebrity host for African
Fashion & Art Week, which kicks off fashion week this weekend at the LA Fashion Studio
downtown. He will also be walking again for Celebrity designer M the Movement’s show.
Besides the M show he will headline shows for Horse of Arabia and be the only male model for
high end designer Andre Soriano’s show, who has one of the highest anticipated shows this
“I love working with different cool designers worldwide and Andre is from the Philippines and
his clothes are so unique.” Now if that’s not enough, he will also be the only celebrity male judge
for LA’s fashion week design competition contest for new designers which will be judged by him
and last years project runway winner Dom Streater.
Sam who can currently still be seen in the iconic brand Boy London’s ads everywhere said “I just
want to keep evolving I’ve been so blessed in this fashion game and I just want to keep going and
continue to see where it can take me.
