Mitchell Brown: “I got an exclusive runway show for Milan fashion week with designer Gianfranco Ferre. That was an amazing experience!”
20 abr, 2012
Thanks for having me! My name is Mitchell Brown, but most people call me Mitch. I am from a small town in Michigan called Caledonia. I’m sure you haven’t heard of it. Most people haven’t
I am 22 years old and some of my favorite things to do are travel, snowboard, swim and party!
I became a model when I was 18 years old. I went to high school with a fellow model named Ethan James and
he started modeling a bit before I did. We went to a pretty small school and everyone basically knew everyone so I asked him how he started and he got me connected with his mother agency in Detroit Michigan, and from there the rest is history!
I got signed to Wilhelmina Models in NYC and moved out there shortly after I was offered a contract. My first shooting in NYC was amazing. It was with a photographer named Mark Wimberly, and after 4 years of modeling his photos are still some of my favorite.
My first editorial was a cover and 8 page spread for a mens fashion magazine in NYC called DNR. I was very excited to do this job seeing as it was my first ever editorial and it was a cover and spread!
Working with photographers: sense of humor and having fun! Posed naked someday?
I enjoy working with photographers most when they make me feel totally comfortable, have a sense of humor and can have fun with me! I don’t really have any preparations before shoots besides shaving, if the client requests clean shaven. There is always a makeup artist and hairstylist to take care of all the rest. I would say no to posing nude, unless it was done tastefully and was with a major photographer that would boost my career to the next level.
The catwalks experiences
I have done a few catwalk shows. I have walked for designers in NY and Milan fashion weeks. I got an exclusive runway show for Milan fashion week with designer Gianfranco Ferre my first season modeling. That was an amazing experience!
I moved to NYC and a few weeks later got to fly to Milan for the GF show all expenses paid. I walked for Commonwealth Utilities in NYC and I have worked for designers such as Giorgio Armani, A.Testoni, Ben Sherman and many more!
I always thought guys were called fashionistos. haha. I have a pretty casual style. I like slim fit or skinny jeans, t-shirts and a pair of converse normally. Casting clothes basically. I am most comfortable in something that is form fitting to my body.
Imagine u a famous models surrounded by a huge crowd!
Smile and take pictures with them.

Show biz, fame, success and most important things for his life
I think you need to be careful within show business and stay true to your roots that you grew up with. It is a tough industry but it can also be pretty rewarding! I think the coolest part about modeling is seeing the final product. I recently did a campaign and got to see it in Europe as well as Asia. That was a surreal moment to see my face all over the world!
The 5 most important things in my life would be:
1. Family. I have an amazing family that has supported me throughout all of this.
2. Friends. I love all of the friends internationally I have made while modeling, it has been so awesome and I feel very fortunate.
3. Traveling. I think traveling is the best part about modeling. I have had the opportunity to travel around the entire world living in multiple cities internationally all for modeling and I am very thankful for that.
4. Education. I am thankful for doing well in school and being able to attend a great university as well as modeling.
5. Pets. I love my dogs and cats back home. Nothing compares to the love and connection we can have to animals!
