From rising talent to buzzing IG's hot list; get to know our American Dreamers cover stars.


Michael Gioia

Now a bonafide star of the european fashion scene, Michael Gioia, featured in our Get Away editorial, is an amazing person to work with. The day our team spent with Michael (U Models Management), we really had the pleasure of watching a star in the making. We had such a tight production schedule, working against the sunlight, and yet, with the most killer smile and lovable personality, he was the highlight of our ten hour production. Get Away was photographed on location in Montauk, New York by New York-based photographer Menelik Puryear. See Get Away Moving Image.

Charlie Matthews

Charlie, featured in our "IG's 500K+ club", wowed us with his business acumen and digital space savviness. Immediately we were intrigued by more than his handsome face, but his mind became the object of our inquiry. With over half a million followers on Instagram, Charlie (Soul Management), is no stranger to the limelight. Witty and willing to share, we were willing and ready to learn all that he had to offer. Charlie was photographed on location in Harlem, New York by our Editor-in-Chief and New York-based photographer Vaughn Eric Stewart. 

Sean Swanson & Phillip Mayberry

These cool boys are featured in our Bedford Boys editorial. This happened to be the first editorial we photographed for the American Dreamers Issue, almost six months before it's release. Sean and Phillip (Major Model Management), helped us capture the true essence of "Cool America" with style, grace and charisma. Bedford Boys was photographed on location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York by France-based photographer Mohktar Beyrouth.
