Tommaso de Benedictis





Italian American Tommaso de Benedictis was scouted playing football on the streets of East London in the summer of 2013.

In June 2013 he took part in his debut fashion week walking for brands including Burberry Prorsum, Ermenegildo Zegna (opener), Neil Barrett, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Kris Van Assche, Valentino, Kenzo, Dior Homme and MORE!

Editorials for Bon, Wallpaper, L’Officiel Hommes Italia and Details followed along with landing the Gucci campaign for Spring/Summer 2014, a rare sight for such a fresh face! He also bagged the Cerruti 1881 accessories campaign for SS14.

Tommaso racked up even more catwalk shows in January 2014 and is certainly a star in the making!
