Knowing 김원중 (Kim Won-joong )

Fashion is mainly about the clothes and the designers, right?  But there’s also this side that gives the face and the image to the clothes and that side of fashion resides on the models, so I’m gonna be doing a series of entries on models that I really fancy.


김원중 (Kim Won-joong ) a Korean fashion male model who also has his own clothing line named 87mm. He was scouted on the street of Seoul and he is part of three different agencies in Milan with I LOVE Models Management, Paris with Success Models and finally in New York with Major Model Management.


After dropping out of college and being discharged of military service, Kim Won began woking in a American Apparel store and it turned out to be just fine since he wanted to become a fashion designer. During that time he met the casting director of Curmas Model Agency  and from that moment on he has been walking the  runways of designers like Etro, Kenzo, Prada, Corneliani and so on.

Also, last year Kim Won debuted his own clothing line 87mm during 2015 S/S Seoul Fashion Week, however, it had been around for a while …the concept for the clothes is very minimalistic and somehow androgynous.
