Misa Patinszki was scouted at a bus stop in his home-town of Budapest, Hungary, by his mother agency WAM Models in January 2011.
Since we last profiled Misa back in October 2011 he’s transformed from a baby faced cherub into a handsome young man. Something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Dolce & Gabbana as they groom him to become the next David Gandy after casting him in their FW14, SS15 and Dolce matte lipstick ad campaigns.
Misa has also fronted campaigns for Frankie Morello and Stone Island whilst his trademark rosey cheeks have graced the pages of magazines including GQ Style Italia, Fucking Young, GQ Style China, Nylon Guys and L’Officiel Hommes Singapore.
His catwalk show credentials include Mugler, Z Zegna, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Frankie Morello, Dolce & Gabbana and Dsquared2.
