Alton Mason is having a moment right now. From dancing to Bad Boy’s finest, Lil Kim and Diddy to walking the runways of Yeezy and Gucci, 20-year-old Alton Mason’s career has certainly seen a shift in the past few years. While studying dance and film in LA the young dancer was hit up on Instagram by casting directors for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show, the rest, as they say, is history.
The in-demand model is used to the nomadic life having lived in eleven different countries to date, the result of his father’s professional basketball career taking him everywhere from Belgium to Greece to Bosnia.
Soon after Yeezy he caught the eyes of Gucci, and not only walked their AW17 show but was invited back for the brand’s first all-black Pre-Fall 2017 campaign captured by Glen Luchford. The campaign’s video showcased Alton’s dance ability in full force clad in the brand’s 70s-inspired collection. His love of fashion and dance is evident, and his unique sense of style is worth peeping at, if not copying.
