The Jeremy Scott Fall 2018 ready-to-wear show may have opened with Gigi Hadid in a bubblegum pink wig, but the highlight of the show was, of course, look 23. Walking for Scott, a fashion force to be reckoned with, was one of the most exhilarating experiences for young model Charles Oduro thus far. What's another highlight in his currently flourishing career? Chatting with Anwar Hadid before strutting down the Ralph Lauren catwalk this past February.
I was lucky enough to meet and work with Charles before he migrated to New York and became far too "big time" for us to meet under natural circumstances. Transitioning from small town boy, to varsity athlete, to full time model has been a whirlwind of an experience. Though Charles is soaking up every moment with heaps of gratitude, this is a dream he doesn't plan on waking up from any time soon. Listen to this wonderful new episode of the emeroo podcast to get to know Charles, and find out exactly what it's like to be a model in the major fashion scene.
