Donegal teenager Ferdia Gallagher has been the talk of Paris Fashion Week

G’wan, Ferdia.

PARIS FASHION WEEK has brought tears from Celine Dion and one serious mood from Viktor and Rolf, but what’s this you’ve heard about a teenager from Donegal making a splash?

Well for anyone who needs to get up to speed on this one, let’s talk Ferdia Gallagher from Gaoth Dobhair.

The teenage model, who stands at six foot two inches, recently moved to Paris after spending six months working in his aunt’s store back home in Ireland.

Ferdia has been counted among ten of the ‘breakout boys’ of men’s fashion week, with i-D describing him as:

19 years of age with a flash of violent ginger hair and a sullen, sharp jawline that could slice every one of your fingers off.

Ferdia, who recently signed with Banana Models, shared his excitement about walking for Celine on Instagram, and thanked everyone involved for ‘having him’.

Walked for Celine’s first menswear collection debut! Thank you @hedislimane & the whole team at @celine for having me.

According to i-D, the Donegal teen has piqued the interest of casting directors, stating: “Now he’s one of the most talked about kids of the high fashion circuit.”

And should you need any further evidence as to why that might be, here you go…
