Miles McMillan

A year ago he was named the Daily Front Row’s “Model of the Year” at the Fashion Media Awards. Well, Miles McMillan, this time you’re our Model of the Week. 

Miles was born and raised in La Jolla, CA, where his father worked in the real estate and his mother as a psychologist. He spent his summers at his grandparents’ home in Hawaii, lucky him! After graduation in 2007, he moved to New York City to study fine arts and painting, one of his passions. He received his bachelors of fine arts from NYU Steinhardt.

During his junior year in college, McMillan was approached by a photographer to shoot for Urban Outfitters.  During his senior year, he got picked up by his first agency. This was the official beginning of his modeling career.
