Marcus makes the "Male Model Hall of Fame"
ModelLaunch announced today that Marcus Schenkenberg has been chosen as the first inductee into the new Male Model Hall of Fame.
By selecting Marcus Schenkenberg as the very first honoree in the new Male Model Hall of Fame, ModelLaunch intends to "salute the most recognizable male fashion model of all time".
George Wayne, writing of Marcus in Vanity Fair Magazine, said "Maverick could easily have been his middle name, because that is precisely the effect this modern-day Michelangelo has had on the world of fashion - Supermodeldom. He broke the mold. Marcus created the whole drama. He broke the barriers and single-handedly put the male model on the map. He sort of said: men can do this too."
Born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1968, Marcus Schenkenberg is the very
first male fashion model to achieve name recognition with the general
public. His face launched numerous celebrated fashion campaigns for the signature names in fashion including: Calvin Klein, Gianni Versace,
Missoni, Donna Karan, and many others.
Schenkenberg has been featured continuously in the top fashion shows in all major capitols, and in a precedent-setting career encompassing fourteen years, he is also the first male model ever to grace the cover of a women's fashion magazine â€¹ Harper's Bazaar. Even a partial list of his photographers reads like a pantheon of the greatest photographic artists of our time â€¹ Richard Avedon, Francesco Scavullo, Karl Lagerfeld, Tyen, Bruce Weber, Steven Meisel, David LaChapelle, Guzman and Arnaldo Anaya Lucca among others.
In the words of David Bosman, President of Boss Models, the agency responsible for building his career, "His unprecedented body of work as a male model has redefined the very definition of masculinity and in doing so, has pioneered the modern idea of the new male beauty".
"The expansion of the men's fashion industry and the increased profile
of men in fashion advertising created an opportunity that Marcus was
almost uniquely born to fill," noted ModelLaunch Editor Sean Bickerton.
