DAVID AGBODJI

David Agbodji could also be called “the Calvin Klein” model. His runway debut was opening and closing Calvin Klein’s Spring/Summer 2010 show in Milan in 2009. After that, he was requested by Steven Klein himself for the SS’10 Campaign.

In 2011, David remained the face of CK and naturally landed several other significant jobs; campaigns for Banana Republic, Bottega Veneta, D&G, DSquared2, and Sean John. The 30-year-old model has appeared in countless editorials in GQ, Interview, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, 10 Men, and much more. As for his runway track record, he has modelled for possibly every top-tier fashion brand around. David has paved the way for the new crop of black models and is still working.

Born in Paris, with roots from Togo, and living in NYC, David’s multicultural background has fuelled his successful career as a model. He holds a degree in Art from NYU; a dream realised after sketching and drawing his entire childhood. Nowadays the New Yorker sees himself more as an artist. Modelling also gave him a front hand experience where he discovered another passion – photography. He founded his studio titled “Heart of Bull” Studios in Brooklyn, N.Y. and when he isn’t shooting or working in fashion, David enjoys boxing at the Anderson Martial Arts Centre in NY and spending time with his wife, Monica.
