THE BEST OF 2017: THE TALENTMAN HIGHLIGHTS / by Michael Seifert

As we welcome a new year, we revisit highlights & milestones that sparked debate and got the fashion industry talking in 2017. 


A NEW BREED OF WARRIORS ARE BORN.

TALENTMAN is honored to introduce 5 new warriors that have been selected to join our fellow warriors: Charmie Pfeffer, Markus Pichlmayer, Danica Magpantay, Bri Findlay and Tara Wagner.

The 'Charming' Charmie


RELAX! IT'S ONLY DIOR, BABY.

We revisit a DIOR Homme & Hypebeast exclusive in "Shadow Play" - one of our favorite fashion stories this year featuring our 'golden boy' Liam Samuels. View the full story here.


Buckle Up, It's Campaign Season!

Our warriors have been traveling the globe, fronting campaigns across Asia, Europe, and the United States all year round. Today, we look back at our favorite campaign moments in 2017:


Prim for TRE! + MISSGUIDED
Kenji for UNIQLO
Liam for REEBOK
Pawel for VISVIM
 


The Cover Boys! 

Two exclusive cover stories that kept the fashion world talking this year were SWITCH MAGAZINE's "Paint Your Soul" issue featuring our 'dandy' Dane Victor Steensig lensed in Milan, Italy; and FACTORY BODY's "The Hong Kong Hollywood Issue" starring our 'modern man' Milan Truska. From boy next door to handsome hunk, our warriors prove that this year it's all about versatility and individuality!


Rising Stars On The Runway!

Christopher Pfeffer takes over Paris Fashion Week earlier this year as a runway #exclusive and 2nd face of GIVENCHY's Spring/Summer 2017 collection. 

Our 'golden boy' Liam Samuels opens and closes the MIGUEL VIEIRA Spring/Summer 2017 shows at Milan Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week. 

A back-to-back finish of our favorite runway moments with Prim Patnasiri, as our 'oriental' pearl takes over the runways at London Fashion Week modeling EDWARD CRUTCHLEY and MATTHEW MILLER's Spring/Summer 2017 collections. 

It's been another outstanding year for our warriors & we couldn't be any more proud of the progress. With TALENTMAN officially on it's 3rd year since birth in October 2014, the new year promises many exciting works in progress that will soon be revealed. We take a moment to give thanks to all our partners worldwide consisting of agencies, clients, models, photographers, and supporters who have put their trust and faith in our hands. We ensure you that 2018 will be yet another exceptional year, and we look forward to sharing key moments with you. Until then, Happy New Year!
