Sleeves Magazine July August 2017 - Page 5

Letter rom the Editor Dear Readers, This July-August issue features our early models in the history of Merryquant, the Cover Boy, Manuel Kronfeldner, who is now 22 years old. He was discovered at the Eisbach River back in the summer of 2014. He came to Paris with me for the Men's Castings in June 2014, three months ater he was first scouted. It was very much diļ¬€erent back then when Merryquant was still starting. I would accompany the model personally to Paris as I did not have direct contact with agencies then. Later I learned the system of how a model should be further represented by another agency from another Fashion Week City which of course became much easier. Manuel was the second model who attended castings in Paris. You will see some Men's Fashion Week Highlights of some of my favorite designers like D.Gnak, Ermenegildo Zegna, Ashley Isham and Chalayan which I do hope you get to know more of the latest trends of the season. As always, my thanks go to the British Fashion Council & Design Hotels for providing me the infos. As always, enjoy reading! Cheers, Joel Jose Emilio "Joel" de Veyra SLEEVES MAGAZINE Sleeves Magazine
