As long as there have been male models, there have been models of latino descent. Most are not recognizable by name but there have have been some influential ones such as Will LeMay, Bernardo Velasco, Heny Diaz, Isaac Valdez and many more. Don't worry if you don't recognize these names either as I am sure you have seen their faces in fashion campaigns for such notable designers/brands as Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Rocawear, Sean John, Gifted Elite and many more.
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of the latin male model and a new crop of WHO TO WATCH OUT FOR's are arriving. One such looker is the incredibly personable Eric Garcia. The handsome 6'2, 180lb Garcia (and Vin Diesel doppelganger) so far has graced the cover of Urban Lux Magazine and was featured in the NEW AMERICANS Campaign and look book for noted Designer/Photographer Bsixtee6.
Eric has continuously booked runway shows during the last few fashion week seasons and has begun to parlay his talents into acting.
Mr. Garcia is definitely one to watch.
