Discovered by Traque Model Management and later introduced to Ford in 2007, Ethan James is a bright young talent hailing from Michigan, and now gracing the runways of elite avante garde and high fashion menswear labels around the world. A particularly unique and remarkable quality that Ethan possesses is his devotion to modelling and passion for fashion beginning at a very early age.
At the age of only seventeen, Ethan had a clear vision of where his life was headed, and decided that he was destined for the fashion world. His love for the industry is not only evident in the fact that he has been a model since he was a teenager, but his aspirations to pursue a career in fashion design or the entertainment industry are also contributing factors to his ongoing success. Walking in several recent fashion shows, namely Comme des Garçons and Paul Smith among others, Ethan's development as a model is palpable through his individual style and very distinctive overall image.
If the runway wasn't a sufficient outlet for Ethan's exceptionally fashion-forward persona, his editorials certainly enhanced and showcased his talent in its ultimate form. His sharp facial features were a great advantage when being photographed for his many editorial photo shoots, and was clearly apparent when he appeared in make-up-heavy editorials such as one for Japanese Vogue Hommes Fall/Winter 2009. As well as his appearance, Ethan's sixth sense for mastering high-fashion editorial styling came into play in his shoot for Dazed & Confused November 2009, where he posed with gold metal plates literally gripping his face and still managed to look straight down the barrel of the lens and take a breath-taking photograph for the editorial.
Whether the fashion world sees more of Ethan in magazines and runway shows, or actually designing a collection of his own, the fact of the matter is that it will definitely be seeing much more of him in the near and distant future. With his sincere love for the ever-growing industry and the mere fact that he doesn't only do his job for the money and fame, Ethan is without a doubt set for a very successful and affluent career.
