Tom Nicon was a sweet and kind boy. I still can't believe he's gone. So sudden. And such a loss to all who knew and loved him.

Oddly enough, I had just emailed with Tom the weekend before Milan. After not seeing him for almost a year. We were by no means close friends but after meeting him at his first show (where the two of us sat texting his soon-to-be agent/my best friend) and a few dinners out in the East Village, an occassional "You alright?" on Facebook seemed to suffice.

I didn't know him well but I know I adored him.

We spoke of his photo studio in Paris where "Cole and Yuri hang out," along with his friend Jolijn. As well as his excitement about several good clients who had just shot there and a few that were organized in the weeks ahead.


We decided a post was in order (to promote the space) and agreed a photo from backstage with him and some of the guys holding a sign or something could be fun. Unfortunately it never came.

My deepest and most heartfelt thoughts go out to his family for their loss. He was a unique and beautiful soul and he will be missed by all who knew him.

Tom's family has extended an open invitation to anyone who wishes to join them in saying their last goodbyes.

I' m really really depressed about the news that tom has been killed by himself. He reminds me Daul.
I mean it, I do like him most...
He is always be the best all my life. I feel so sorry.
Wish him to be happy in the love of god..
R.I.P Tom

I really wish people in this industry would just be a little kinder to one another. Kindness, compassion-- and just showing a bit of consideration and good manners to another person, would vastly improve someone's impression of you, and maybe-- just maybe, make it easier for someone else to get through their day, or life.

It's this cold, mean and nasty attitude that some in the industry continue to perpetuate with glee-- like it gets them off to treat someone else like they're less of a person to assert their superiority, that makes me despise the industry. And I don't mean just people at the top of their game; it's everybody. It's like these people see the awful, shallow, bitchy caricatures of what people in the fashion industry are suppose to be like on television, and they believe it, and try desperately to be like that; whether it's the photographer who sees herself as the only one that matters and treats everyone else on the team like the help; or the casting agents who coldly, and rudely brush off models; or bitchy stylists who think they're a character on Ugly Betty; or delusional models who think they're too good to associate with the rest of the girls because she's had some success. People need to just need to learn to be more compassionate and kind-- just a simple gesture: A "Thank You" for a start.
