WILSON ORYEMA

In the modelling industry, having a fairy Godmother can transform one’s life. When British designer Grace Wales Bonner erupted on the London fashion scene, following her sumptuous graduate collection, all eyes were immediately on Oryema. Indeed, the young man became one of the muses and faces of the Wales Bonner’s universe.

Oryema has since been featured in campaigns for Hugo Boss and Versus Versace. His nonpareil look is opening new standards regarding beauty and doors for young black men who would typically be rejected in an industry that idealise a more passe-partout type of physique. Recently, Tim Walker and Kathy England teamed up for a Gucci editorial in Another Man, and of course, Oryema took part in it. Did we mention Raf Simons cast him for his fall 2016 campaign? Now, that’s change! More major though was his feature in the 2018 Pirelli calendar photographed by Tim Walker, featuring an all-black cast.
