Canadian native Dorian Reeves may just be in his early twenties but he already has a cover of style bible Italian Vogue to his name. In addition to racking up a slew of editorials in covetable magazines, Dorian has walked the runway for Versace, Missoni and Jeremy Scott. Emily Sandberg and I caught up with him to find out about his most memorable moment and how he feels about social media.
Tell us about how you got started as a model.
What do you hope to get out of modeling?
I want to experience everything. I want to grow, flourish and become myself. I am opening the doors to the career I’ve always dreamed of, a full-time actor. Making many friends and traveling as much as possible is a delight.
What has been the most memorable moment of your career thus far?
Working with Steven Meisel, one of my favorite photographers, for the cover of Italian Vogue alongside supermodel Raquel Zimmerman is one of my most memorable moments.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
How incredibly curious and happy I am all the time.
If you weren’t modeling what would you be doing?
I would be biking throughout Europe, studying nutrition and most likely helping my mom garden.
What are your goals and aspirations for the future?
I’d like to race on my bike in the 200 meter sprint next summer in Quebec City. I also dream of living in Paris for at least a month.
US Vogue featured a host of models on their September cover touting their heavy social media presence. How integral do you feel social media is to a model’s career nowadays?
I am delighted you asked. I absolutely loved the cover! Social media, without a doubt, is taking strides in a model’s career – whether they like it or not.
