    Cute mixed race.

  • erika

    Can’t help it, I just don’t like this look…

  • Really Works in Fashion

    Striking face. Edgy and artistic features. He’s memorable, has good skin and no mess of tattoos. I would call him for a casting.

  • Eamon

    Great original look. His nose and eyes especially. Still so young and I think he will develop nicely.

  • miguel

    The most interesting face of the year, no doubt. cool and special.

  • Fire Horse

    I love this look – it really stands out among the more predictable faces this season. And he’s bright and interesting too. What a package!

    I had the pleasure to run three shows during the FW Paris Fashion Week 2013/2014 with Elijah. He’s an amazing guy to be around, very positive and energetic. He will go far!
