A South African in New York… It has a ring to it. Having made his career a solid one locally, model and photographer Bryce Thompson is now making a name for himself in the United States. First we saw him showing at Todd Snyder’s SS12 show but a day later our boy walked the Michael Bastian show alongside model-great Tyson Beckford.

But he’s not the only one, Justin Hopwood (Vision models) walked for Perry Ellis in 2011  and has been doing superbly well in the States. His big break was an Abercrombie shoot with Bruce Weber but soon after Hopwood landed a huge campaign for Polo Ralph Lauren while shooting with notable photographers. Obviously our boys aren’t letting Candice Swanepoel have all the fun.
