The story of Cinderella is possible in real life, especially if Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid become your fairy godparents. This proves what happened to homeless Los Angeles skater John Economow.
As you know, many models come to the industry from the very social bottom. This does not prevent them from becoming super successful, and perhaps even pushes them to active work. Probably the story of twenty-year-old Milwaukee native John Economow will become just such a Cinderella story.
At the age of 19, after the divorce of his parents, John was left homeless. This made him pack up his few things and go to try his luck in Los Angeles. Here the guy lived in the open air on Venice Beach, until fate gave him a new acquaintance. Once he met Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid on the beach, and the acquaintance led to the fact that John recently signed a contract with a modeling agency.
“I was just relaxing on the beach and looking at the water, and then I saw these people. They sat quite close, they had a picnic … Local seagulls got the girls, trying to beg for food, and I helped them chase the birds away. One of the girls said to me: “You are cute,” and we struck up a conversation. As it turned out, Jenner and Hadid were on the beach to star in an advertising project,”- says about the fateful meeting Economou. The guy adds that it was Gigi and Kendall who advised him to start modeling: "They said they could help me contact the agency and introduced me to two managers."
Now John has signed a contract with one of the major agencies that works with Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana. Of his plans, Economou says: “I want to be the best. I want to be on the same top with Kendall … I am confident in myself and my strengths."
