Tom Nicon Tragically Commit Suicide

 French male model Tom Nicon tragically took his own life, just as the menswear catwalk shows are getting started in Milan. Tom jumped from the roof of his apartment block, after he went through a bad breakup with a girlfriend. The model's friends confirmed that Tom had a complicated love life, and that this is possibly the reason for his suicide.
 Tom has appeared in a Burberry campaign, and in a variety shows for some of the world's most famous fashion houses, including Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss and Yves Saint Laurent. Tom had attended the rehearsal of the Versace Menswear show on the same day that he died, and Donatella Versace has since made a statement about the model:

 “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. I 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.”

Below is a small tribute to Tom - including images from the Burberry Campaign, some of his runway work and a short interview that he took part in.
