Fernando Cabral has a look you can’t forget. His ebony skin, striking facial bone structure, ectomorph body and unique way of working clothes on fashion shoots set him apart. Highly requested by global brands, this 6 ft. 2-inches tall male model travels nonstop for work and has been seen by millions of people on a daily basis. However, when you meet Fernando and hear his quiet voice for the first time, you immediately feel the presence of the beautiful soul that fuels this outrageous, family-oriented, and funny human being.

His first modelling gig came in 2010 where he got booked with his brother Armando for H&M’s global campaign. Since then he has developed into one of the most sort-after male models of our time. Be it fashion shows, campaigns, or lookbooks his likeness is quickly becoming ubiquitous on the menswear landscape. Just recall his S/S 13 Numero Homme Cover by Jacob Sutton, or just take a glimpse at his recent campaigns which include Balmain, Maison Scotch, Hugo Boss and H&M x Erdem, and you will quickly agree.

Cabral, whose nickname is Toze, was born in Guinea Bissau and moved to Lisbon, Portugal at the age of three. He has lived there ever since. In 2016 Portuguese GQ dubbed him Model of the year. If he isn‘t working, he loves to read books about history, a passion that he kept after studying international relations. He has the talent of being super funny by leveraging deadpan/dry humour and his inner child fully exposes when he has the chance to play with his nephews.

After achieving almost everything possible in the fashion world as a model, his most profound life goal is to help a governmental organisation contributing to Africa’s development and building a school in Guinea Bissau. Fernando resides in Lisbon together with his fiance Ondungha.
