This Donegal redhead has been hailed as "one of the most talked about kids of the high fashion circuit" at the 2019 Paris Men's Fashion Week. 

Paris Men's Fashion Week kickstarts the world's sartorial year nicely, with iconic moments like Dior's conveyor belt runway and Louis Vuitton's retro "Billie Jean" set to satisfy the ravenous "fash pack" for a few more months until the Oscars fevers take hold in February. 

As with every Fashion Week, newer and younger models get their chance to stomp the runway and impress FROW-ers, and this year, it's Donegal native Ferdia Gallagher's time to shine.

The 19-year-old – who has just relocated to Paris – was handpicked by Hedi Slimane to debut his first standalone menswear collection.

As well as this, he also made his exclusive catwalk appearance on the closing night of Paris Fashion Week for Slimane’s Celine and, according to i-D, "has had casting directors asking "Who’s that bloke?" ever since."
