Reece King – Biography, Facts & Family Life Of The English Model

What truly defines success? Is it the accumulation of progressive actions performed over a period of time or is it something one stumbles on regardless of past efforts? At the end of the day, there is no one path to success and celebrities like Reece King are proof of that.

Reece King’s tale of success has transformed his life from being a member of the retail workforce, earning minimum age to being a jet setting international model. A mindless picture posted in 2016 became the catalyst that transformed Reece King’s life. Today, his modeling career has seen him model for brands like H&M, and Reserved; he has also featured in a couple of music videos.

You can learn all about his journey from retail worker to international model by reading below.

Who Is Reece King?

Reece King was born on the 1st of November, 1994 in the United Kingdom, specifically in Essex, England. The English model was raised along with his siblings in a modest life that included a basic education. Much of his academic history is unknown and we cannot possibly say if he studied all the way to the university level, however, he always had an interest in fashion, an interest that reflected in his personal dressing style.

As an adult with a need to make ends meet of his own, Reece King joined the workforce and worked as retail staff, that is, until a random picture posted on Instagram of himself wearing a LAMODA septum ring went viral. The picture reached the pinnacle of internet popularity when it was reposted by the brand behind the septum ring, LAMODA.

This singular action opened the doors on multiple fashion-related opportunities, beginning with modeling offers from various brands and a clothing company, Deck, which offered a chance at a partnership that allowed him to design his own clothing line.

Reece King has since been signed on to Supa Model Management, working with a talent agent, Leah Hibbert and has gone on to work with some of the top brands in the fashion industry, including GAP, John Elliott, Reserved, H&M and Forever 21.
