Simon Nessman was born November 5, 1989 in Courtenay, British Columbia. Nessman was discovered when a friend’s sister sent photos of him to Mode Models in Calgary Alberta. Nessman is of half Austrian and half Scottish decent. Best known for his perfectly curled hair and pillowy lips, and best know for being the face of Versace and Dolce and Gabbana. His boyish appeal and exceptional physique, helped him land his first editorial with Bruce Weber in 2007.
In 2009, Nessman landed a big campaign for Givenchy and his career boosted increasingly. He began landing campaigns with Roberto Cavalli, DSquared, D&G, and many more. He also walked in NYFW for Tommy Hilfiger and walked for Roberto Cavalli and D&G during Milan fashion week.
Simon can be seen in Givenchy’s campaigns dating from his first one with the house (FW ’09 ) and up. Nessman is currently the third most successful male model in the world
