3M: Mission Male Model

Señores,
I have been on a quest for fashion greatness for sometime now and I have reached a milestone. Since high school I’ve had a growing love for fashion. Admittedly, I made it dormant porque being the star of the team, and being really into the cut de los jeans or color blocking, didn’t necessarily mesh well at that time.

However, as I grew in maturity, my passions grew stronger. The summer before universidad I started modeling. At that point is when I was overwhelmingly bitten by the fashion bug. However life happened. Mi amor for fashion and style couldn’t be fully pursued because I was blessed with a college scholarship.

Durante universidad I grew in my personal style and was noted for being a stylish estudiante on campus. I started customizing jeans with bleach and paint and was known to be very edgy and tendy. I even revisited modeling on a real low level. I would attend castings and they would love me except for the tattoos and pierced ears.

Fast forward to my mid twenties. I began to do editorial shoots in Houston hoping to gain some traction. That really didn’t happen. Then came 2014…Noviembre 2014!!

At 32 years old, after being in dozens of local fashion shows, participating in gobs of TFP editorial shoots, a number of rejections from agencies for things that are accepted now – I caught a break. I am now a published model and I was able to grace the runway on a grandote platform (Fashion Houston)!! This is exciting to me because it was a dream that came true. I also, as a budding designer, seasoned blogger, and growing stylist, want to experience the fashion industry form mucho diferente vantage points. Here are out captures of that glorious November that has ignited un fuego in my desire for fashion iconicism!
