No, I haven't been shooting in Tokyo! Unfortunately...
This is Ruben, one of my best friends.
He is a portuguese model agenced by EliteLisbon with 23y-old who lives in Porto and that has been having an huge success in his carreer both in Portugal and abroad.
In his carreer Ruben has already been modelling for designers as Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Botega Venetta, Gianfranco Ferre among many others.
He has also travelled a lot working for many clients (from designers to magazines and TV) all over the world from Paris to Tokyo, from Rio de Janeiro to London, Berlin to Barcelona, Sao Paulo, Milan or Athens.
The picture below is from his last trip, to Tokyo, that was just "the best trip ever" he says. A city that never sleeps, with high sense of fashion and creativity but never forgetting their origins due to the strong culture they have with many many years.
So that is all a big reason to make us believe that many more runways you're about to hit, new designers to work for, and much more experiences and places to know... And then we just gotta be proud of you and of all the portuguese models working around the globe!
Wish you the best bro!
