Alex Harris and Andrew Harris known in the industry as “The Harris Twins” are newest dynamic duo in the modeling industry. They are trailblazers for African American twin models. The Harris Twins were not always the coolest kids in school. In fact, growing up in Indiana they had no friends, no invites to events, and well fashion did not seem to be their friend. They only had themselves and they had to make it work. Their unique “Double” look made them standout in school. They were forced to create their own category of “Cool”. When your mirror image is your handsome twin brother, why would you need anyone else? The twins may have gone unnoticed in the hallways but in the modeling industry, they are making major moves and shining like industry jewels. Their unwillingness to conform created an exciting drive for fashion. Their unique flair led them to a chance opportunity in the modeling industry. The Harris Twins introduction to the modeling world came after being introduced to the editors of NV Magazine based in New York City. From there the twins had their first celebrity photo shoot and graced the pages with singer Michelle Williams for April issue of NV magazine. The shoot soon led them to Los Angeles to meet celebrity photographer, Jerris Madison. Their faces were then featured on the cover of the October issue of The Shoot. The twins then went on to work in Baltimore, Maryland with celebrity photographer, Michael Antonio and celebrity designer, Stevie Boi. The twins have an impressive portfolio for being in the industry for less than 2 years. The Harris Twins’ modeling inspirations come from each other. They risked a lot to venture off to New York City to pursue there dreams. Having reached over 100,000 miles on their car, traveling back and forth from Atlanta, to Baltimore, to Virgina, to Connecticut, to Indiana ect. It was a struggle for them to get stable, having to go through homelessness, sleeping in their car for weeks at a time, and being scammed left and right for what they were led to believe was the truth. But they stayed strong and are still working hard to reach their never ending goals in the industry.
