Growing sideways has made me taller.
Sang Woo Kim


Agency: Select Model Management

Location: London

A top model, the face on posters in shops and walls on the underground, a son, a brother, a friend, an artist, funny, empathetic to fellow humans - Sang Woo Kim is all these things. He has been the face of Armani Eyewear, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana and paraded the catwalk of Burberry, Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Neil Barrett, Kenzo and a whole lot more, it's easy to get curious about what's behind the facade of fashion and shine a light on who this beautiful boy actually is.  

So this is what we did in Issue 9; Sang's 14-page cover story photographed by Cecilie Harris gives you an insight to what it's like growing up between two cultures, the case of many of us these days, as we move across borders and the world get smaller. As he very honestly paints his story and we print it onto the pages made available to you, you are presented with a beautiful insight to the mind of a Korean boy that has already adapted his lessons learned and fashion fairy tale into the empathetic and creative boy he is today. His story is out now in our issue 9 'Growing Sideways' and is also available to order via our website. Have a little sneak peek here if you want.
