I have a bit of an obsession with Red Model Management. Shawn and Isaiah are both represented by the New York based agency that also represents Wendell Lissimore, Salieu Jalloh, and Dominique Hollington. Red prides itself on representing models of different backgrounds and has many ethnic models as well as tattooed models on its roster. They may not be the agency with the most models on the Top 50 list but that list is also made up primarily of white models.
The spread above is dope to me. Isaiah has a great look and of course Shawn has features that are next to impossible to forget.
In an industry that is still heavily saturated with white faces, Red stands out as the premiere place for male models of color.
