Michele Graglia - florist turned model

What do you think of the idea of turning from working in the floral industry and taking up modeling. Well that's just what Michele Graglia did. Born in San Remo, Italy on August 30th, 1983, Michele graduated from high school and then moved to Genoa to attend one of the premier law schools in Italy. After a year with excellent marks he decided to quit and follow the family business in the floral industry. It was when he turned 24 that he decided to move to Miami Beach.
His life took a turn in September 2007 when he was discovered by Irene Marie of Irene Marie Model Agency and signed to a 2 year contract. Michele's photos have appeared in Out Magazine (December 2007) and Madrid Magazine (March 2008) just to name a couple of sources. He moved to Milan in October 2008 where he booked a couple of shows and then returned to Miami in November 2008. The photos shown were taken by photographer Gregory Vaughan. Check out the following link for Michele's story on his modeling career and how he got to where he is now:
I love these stories on how people found their passion in life and took advantage of the opportunity. Michele is currently represented by Major Model Management. - V.
