Model profile: Silviu Tolu
Silviu Tolu is a 22 year old male model born in Bucharest, Romania. He started modeling at the age of 18 at his mother agency Allure Management and during his first year of career he mainly worked for brands and fashion designers in Romania. His first international gig was an editorial for the Russian fashion magazine Citizen K in 2010. After that it was just a a matter of time until he became known worldwide and started breaking young girls’ hearts.
His main interest is acting and wants to pursue it at some point and that is why he enjoys doing editorials more than runways, it gives him the freedom to get in the character’s skin and ‘play’ for the camera. His biggest success was the spring/ summer campaign for GUESS in 2010, with
lovely models Elsa Hosk and Alyssa Miller. Next year, in 2011, he return to the set of the spring/summer campaign for GUESS posing next to models Elsa Hosk, Alyssa Miller and Kate Upton. It seems that the male model grew on the fashion label and they called him back in for the fall/winter 2011 ad campaign, fall/ winter 2012, fall/ winter 2012 jeans collection and the 2013 advertising for GUESS Girl fragrance.
Except being a favorite for GUESS, model Silviu Tolu appeared in ad campaigns for brands such as GAP, Uniqlo, IL PASSO, QS by Soliver and Longcroft. The models color changing eyes were featured in fashion magazines such as Citizen K, Client, Crash, Elle Romania, Essential Homme, GQ Japan, GQ Romania, Homme style, Fiasco, Pen, Odda and Uomo Collezioni. He walked the runway for designers and brands like Tom Ford, Alexandre Plokhov, Nicholas K, General Idea and Bespoken.
