Filipinx model Noah Carlos is one of the three cover stars of i-D's The Get Up Stand Up issue, alongside rapper Megan Thee Stallion and Nigerian creative skaters Motherlan. The magazine called the Gen Z model as "the non-binary model shaking up the fashion industry." See their cover below!
For those who don't know Noah, more commonly known on Instagram as @loserthrift, is an 18-year-old model signed under IMG, who walked for designers like Alexander Wang, Lanvin, Maison Margiela, and Marc Jacobs. Noah was also specifically chosen by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim to close the designer duo's last show for Kenzo.
In their i-D cover story, they talked about their love for thrifting, representing queer Filipinx models, as well as the current state of the fashion landscape for non-binary models.
"Truth is, everything is slow, but fashion is the fastest," Noah says about the industry's perception of gender fluidity. "I feel if non-conforming people don't experience different things in this industry, it won't change. I feel like in order to change, we need to get thrown into it and then talk about what happens."
So major! Congrats on the cover, Noah!
