Androgynous model to come to Istanbul
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsAustralian androgynous model Andrej Pejic, one of the most talked-about male models in the world of fashion, will come to Istanbul Oct. 5 for Forum Fashion Week. He will be on the runway at the European Young Designers fashion show.
Born in 1991, Pejic is notable for being androgynous and possessing the rare ability to successfully model both male and female clothing. In the Paris fashion shows of January 2011, he walked in both the men’s and women’s shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier and the men’s shows for Marc Jacobs.
As of September 2011, Pejic ranks number 18 on the models.com Top 50 Male Models list, and was ranked number 98 in FHM magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011, an “award” that was criticized for its hostile tone to transgender individuals.
