This is Brahim, the face of our first campaign in 2020. At twenty-one years old, this angel-faced student has already worked for the biggest names in fashion, without losing any of his playfulness. Meet a young man with a bright future.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF?
My name is Brahim Hassan; I’m twenty-one years old, and I’m from Chad. I live in Paris. I work as a model and I’m a student in management and international trade.
COULD YOU TELL US BRIEFLY ABOUT YOUR CAREER?
After improving my French and graduating from high school, I returned to Paris in 2019 to get my B.A.
Then it was my good fortune to be photographed for System Magazine by the legendary Paolo Roversi and the ingenious Ibrahim Kamara.
After that I was able to work with major fashion houses and magazines such as AMI by the amiable Alexandre Mattiussi, RSVP, and it was an honor and joy for me to be the brand’s first face (yes, I’m smiling as I write this, and kisses to Cleo ;), Kenzo, Christian Louboutin, Make Up For Ever, Numéro Magazine, Purple, ICON El Pais, SSAW, etc.
When I was younger, I silently admired this art of storytelling, of paying tribute to the past, expressing a mood, and I could go on and on, that we find in fashion.
Today I’m grateful for the opportunity to travel, explore, experiment, and meet superb people, all while pursuing my university studies.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT PARIS?
I adore the independent, neighborhood shops, local artisans; bakeries, pastry shops, charcuteries, cheese makers, chocolate shops, spice merchants, small grocery stores, and especially having my coffee alone on a café terrace when I wake up.
