Mode's Simon Nessman for
John Galliano underwear
The Canadian boys were a force to be reckoned with on the runways of Paris and Milan for the Spring/Summer 2010 men shows.

Simon Nessman - Canadian male supermodel, who also appears in the new John Galliano underwear campaign - led the boys with an impressive twelve shows, followed closely by his fellow Mode model Taylor Fuchs, with nine.

Rookie of the Season, Rob (Elmer Olsen), is off to a great start for his first show season and landed prestigious shows like YSL, Salvatore Ferragamo, Trussardi, Burberry and Dunhill.

Booker Tara Lanoway is ecstatic at her diamond in the ruff and explains to Modelresource that the show season was a perfect opportunity for Rob to experience how serious this industry is. Having teammates like Gordie Walker and superstar Alex Loomans showing him the ropes was a fantastic asset.

Congratulations to all our boys, including; Ryan Taylor (Elmer Olsen), Casey Taylor (Elmer Olsen), Gordie Walker (Elmer Olsen), Alex Loomans (Elmer Olsen), Joey Kirchner (Mode), Theo Hall (I Model Mgmt), Simon Tham (Sutherland), Martin Evans (NAM) and Eric Belanger (Elite).
