Model of the Week: Raphael Balzer

Meet Raphael Balzer

This week’s model selection was born in a teensy town called Zeven, which is located in the district of Rotenburg in Lower Saxony Germany. It’s population couldn’t compare to that of a metropolis, but it’s his claim to fame.

Raphael Balzer

Raphael Balzer, both of German and Nigerian descent, flaunts a chestnut shell casing that we like to refer to as “transcontinental.” Depending on his pose, he resembles our friends, our African family members, and our Asian coworkers, all at once. In addition, his eye-shapes remind us of almonds. There’s something about him that’s very tropical. We can totally see him modeling in United Colors of Benetton ads or ripping the runway for Desigual 2015. As stated via, he was scouted by PMA Models and though he’s unsigned outside of Zeven, he will soon join major markets. He’s a unique beauty.
