Name|Karlis Leiboms
Age|17
Hometown|Riga, Latvia

How did you get into modeling?
I got into modeling at a music festival (where else?) by my agent Karlis Adlers (Thanks Karlis!) At first I was skeptical about it but after my first editorial shoot for GQ, I was hooked!
What are your interest outside of modeling?
I am going to school, hanging out with my friends, skateboarding, chilling at home or listening to some great music!
Your most memorable moment in modeling to date:
I think, my most memorable moment in modeling was when I did my very first show—Topman. I really enjoyed it and surprisingly I wasn't nervous or stressed out. One interesting fact: The stylist for Topman, Gary Armstrong, was also the stylist who styled my very first shoot! So, I felt right at home!
Turn ON vs. Turn OFF in modeling:
Turn on: Walking for my favorite brands like Dior Homme, Berluti
Turn off: Bad catering at backstage!
When you are not working, what would your typical day off like?
I usually hang out with my mates. A big part of my day is music. I really enjoyed listening to A$AP Rocky, Migos Nav, Kanye West and Drake.
Describe your personal style
Street/Skater style. I really like black skinny jeans and "old skool" sneakers by Vans. Usually I wear a random t-shirt that's clean, hoodie and skinny jeans.
If you could meet any individual through modeling, who would you like to meet and why?
A$AP Rocky or Tyler the creator!
Craziest thing you ever done:
All the skateboarding tricks I usually do. I will show you when I meet you one day!
Your wish for 2017 is:
I will get to spend more time skateboarding and not expel from myself school! :)
Shows you have walked so far:
FW2017—Topman, Burberry, Diesel Black Gold, Fendi, Dior Homme, Berluti, Valentino, Ximon Lee, Kolor and J.W.Anderson
