Tom Nicon, a 22-year-old French model who was known as a top runway walker, was found dead today in Milan, one day before the start of Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week. Nicon is said to have fallen from a window in his apartment.
A friend of Nicon’s told Isaac Likes that Nicon was making normal pre-fashion week rounds just before his death.
“He did the Versace fitting this morning. After that he was supposed to go to his agency but he never arrived. I don’t know if it was suicide or if he fell.”
Nicon’s death is the latest in a series of top models passing, including Ambrose Olsen and Lina Marulanda. Sports Illustrated model Noemie Lenoir attempted suicide just last month.
Nicon had appeared in shows for Versace, Louis Vuitton, Gareth Pugh and Costume National, among others. Isaac Likes speculated about a tribute to Nicon at some of the first shows tomorrow, in which Nicon might have appeared.
It's just sad to hear news like this *sigh* he was one of the youngest models on the high rise of fashion. He worked with designers such as Versace, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, and Burberry and many more listed above in this article. It kind of sounds like there could be some foul play involved to me. C'mon right before Milian's Men's Fashion Week?! Either way my condolence's to his family and friends and Tom may you rest in peace...
