Michael Collis - face of an angel, body of a soccer devotee
Next up in Frockwriter’s model showcard series for New Zealand Fashion Week, the men of Auckland agency 62 Models (here’s their women’s show pack).
When asked for their NZFW new faces, 61 Models nominated the following:
- Cory Coyle, 18, Henderson, West Auckland
- Michael Collis, 18, Whangaparaoa
Collis has a particularly strong look – the face of an angel, combined with a lean, athlete's body, a gritty number one buzz cut and rat's tail and an “ARSENAL” tattoo across the top of his back, the latter reflecting his passion for soccer.
Collis plays the left-half position in the 1st XI soccer team of his school, Auckland's Rosmini College. He was in fact scouted while playing with the team in Auckland a year ago - by Angela Bevan of New Face No Agent, who hooked him up with 62 Models.
To date Collis has shot with photographers such as David Shields and Karen Inderbitzen-Waller, for local publications including Black Magazine.
We think he has a big future off-field.
