Dear Ladies and Gentlemen... it was about time for me to raise the temperature on iminhtouch! I thought I'd would start with the devilishly shouldering top model Edison Kelmendi. At only 22 years, his Eastern European cheekbones give his genetics away but he is currently living between Zurich and New York and I don't mean swimming the Atlantic! (though I suspect this superhuman could!)

Edison started modelling at 18 years old after being scouted on the streets. I have had the chance to work with him for some events and he clearly knows how to make an entrance!!! No wonder why he is currently a runway favourite for Versace. This season he also participated in the shows for Michael Bastian, Maison Kitsune, Pyer Moss and  Jack Spade.

What is most unnerving about this young man is that he is soo down to earth, polite, interactive, eloquent in 3 languages that I know of and totally oblivious to the effect he causes!!! To describe Edison in purely terms of beauty is a disservice. Like James Dean or Terrence Stamp his character makes him much more attractive and accessible. Today I am happy to share my next "Touch Moment" with Edison when he shared with me his passion for love, life and fashion. Edison will move this summer to New York to build upon his internatoinal modeling career!!! I would like to take this opportunity to wish him all the best!!! Switzerland will miss their best import to date!!! Enjoy  my next touch moment with Edison Kelmendi.

Minh : If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be?

  1. An interesting dialogue is price comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic however usually individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers. models prefer lipsticks
