Watch this Face

As most of you will have heard the London Collections: Men weekend has sadly come to end but these thronged three days will be talked about for a very long time. It was the first ever MFW(eekend) that London has ever had, it brought tons of fashionable excitement to an otherwise dreary week - yes, I am referring to the gorgeous army of suitors handing out The Porter Post - and has seen an influx of great talent from both designers and models. Speaking of models, moreover, there have been some dapper new faces cropping up on the radar - even Benedict Cumberbatch tried his hand at catwalking for Spencer Hart {read more on Glamour}. However, in my opinion, there's a face with much more potential that we should all be watching.

At 6'3, 19 year old James Burke towers above the average model with the gentlemanly grace and urbane charm expected of an editorial/catwalk clothes horse. His porcelain skin, delicate features yet unexpectedly rigid jaw line make him the epitome of the ever coveted androgynous look. A flash of auburn hair means he won't be a face that you'll quickly forget.

Previously a Premier boy, he modeled for Ozwald Boateng in 2010 and did presentations for Hardy Amies. Now signed to Nevs, Burke walked for 5 designers at Graduate Fashion Week in Birmingham and made his MFW debut on the catwalk for YMC SS13 - apart from participating in numerous photo shoots in the past. The red-headed fashion model is now headed to Milan, a city that could potentially hold the key to his success.

Not convinced? Despite his young age and temporary inexperience, James photographs like a pro and looked completely at ease amongst his more seasoned counterparts on the YMC runway. Don't be fooled by his boyish demeanor, this one's a dark horse.
