The days leading up to Fashion Week are hectic to say the very least, but one of the highlights during it all is meeting the models who come to town and many of whom for the first time. Meet Johan Johansson, 6’1½” (187 cm), 23-years-old, who is newly in New York from, wait for it, Sweden! Having walked for Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Costume National, Etro in Europe, the Swede is keen to mark his New York Fashion Week debut in style. The Umea, Sweden native is aided in no small part by a palpable enthusiasm for this relatively new occupation of his.
Blessed with Scandinavian good looks and a refined romantic charm that would not be out-of-place in Northern Italy it is surprising Johan did not take to modeling sooner than he did. Three years ago Johan was spotted by a model scout in Los Angeles whilst on holiday, but he did not answer the call. Johan only later took seriously the modeling suggestion upon being scouted once more, but this time in his native Sweden by his soon-to-be mother agent. Fast forward to today Johan is an established model keen to bridge the Atlantic divide with a strong New York debut.
Outside of modeling Johan enjoys painting and football. Although the former left-sided midfielder does not play as regularly as he did as a teenager, he is no less passionate for the beautiful game, supports Manchester United, and counts fiery Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic as one of his favorite players. Passion also runs high in his love life with his recent engagement to a lovely Swedish model named Michaela. Johan asked his now fiancée to marry him along Italy’s Almafi Coast. Johan possesses a look, charisma, and maturity that belies his years that will surely also enchant clients. Look for Johan Johansson in Fashion Week S/S 11.
