Burberry Model Tom Nicon Found Dead

The 22-year-old French model – who has also fronted campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss and Versace – reportedly jumped 40ft to his death from his apartment window in Milan, Italy –  and was found dead just hours before the start of Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week. The model had recently broken up with his girlfriend and had been depressed, according to an insider.

Designer Donatella Versace expressed her sadness at the model’s death: “Tom was with us on Friday morning for a final show fitting. He seemed fine and calm. He had already done three or four shows with us and he was a sweet boy. “We just can’t understand why he did what he did. We would never have thought he would do something like this. “When we heard the news we were all so upset and we still are all so very sad.”
Organisers say Milan Fashion Week will continue to go ahead but it is thought a tribute will be paid to the young Frenchman.

Police in the Italian city have revealed they are treating Tom’s death as suicide.
May he rest in peace.
