Model Tom Nicon Reportedly Found Dead in Milan

Model Tom Nicon Reportedly Found Dead in Milan, a Day Before Milan Men’s Fashion Week



Twenty-two-year old French model Tom Nicon was found dead in Milan this morning — just a day before Milan Men's Fashion Week begins — a friend of his in Milan tells the blog Isaac Likes. His agency has declined comment, but Nicon reportedly fell from his apartment window. "He did the Versace fitting this morning," the unnamed friend said. "After that he was supposed to go to his agency but he never arrived. I don't know if it was suicide or if he fell."

Nicon has walked for a slew of top labels, including Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Costume National, Versace, Kenzo, Gareth Pugh, and Hugo Boss. Costume National and Burberry show tomorrow, and Isaac Likes wonders if they will have a tribute for the model.

Nicon's tragic passing is just the latest in a string of top model deaths over the past couple of years, following Daul Kim and Ambrose Olsen's. An anonymous model told Isaac Likes, "People think we are young and beautiful and rich and happy. But we're not. We go to castings and the directors take one look at us and then we're dismissed. You spend your whole life wondering what's wrong with you. Why didn't I get that job? You're competing with your friends, you're away from your family. The pressure is huge. It's not the fairytale life people would expect."

This is ridiculously sad. I'd never heard of him but the fashion world has had too many deaths recently.

Jumped out the window? Deja vu with Ruslana

This cannot be happening. He was a such a great model! I was just thinking about him yesterday. All I can hope for is that it wasn't suicide, but even if it were accidental, it would still sadden me deeply. Rest in peace Tom. I never knew you, but you seemed like a lovely guy with his whole future ahead of him. My condolences to his poor family and friends.
