10 Arab Male Models You Need To Follow

The promising young faces to watch

With regional female models taking over the international fashion scene – a new wave of promising young Arab male models have flooded our IG feeds. They walk for Givenchy, are BFF’s with Balmain and are fast on the rise. MILLE asks: who should we keep an eye on and why are we so obsessed?

Nizar Talal

A rising staple on the fashion runways, Paris-based Moroccan model Nizar Talal has walked for top brands like Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Fendi, Jacquemus, and Dior.

Fares Ben M’Barka

In addition to starring in campaigns for Versace, the French-Tunisian model has also graced the catwalks of renowned brands such as Burberry and Aigner.

Karim Safi

Hailing from Palestine, you’ve probably seen Karim Safi in editorials for High Snobiety and VMAN. The up-and-coming model has also fronted editorials for Moncler and walked runways for Louis Vuitton and Rhude, after making his catwalk debut at Saint Laurent.

Mohamed Hassan

The Egyptian model based in Amsterdam is certainly one to keep a close watch on. After making his runway debut for Virgil Abloh’s spring 2022 menswear collection for Louis Vuitton, Mohamed Hassan has gone on to work with Hermes, Dior, Rimowa, Casablanca, Etro, and Ferragamo, to name just them.
