Milan, Italy (AHN) – A Burberry model has been found dead in Italy . Tom Nicon is believed to have committed suicide after falling 40 feet from his apartment in Milan on Friday.
The 22-year-old male face of the British fashion label reportedly fell from his apartment window. He was supposed to go to his agency but never arrived.
An unnamed friend told IsaacLikes.com, “He did the Versace fitting this morning. After that he was supposed to go to his agency but he never arrived. I don’t know if it was suicide or if he fell.”
His death coincided with the start of the men’s fashion week in the city.
Fashion designer Donatella Versace told the Telegraph, “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.”
It is reported that a tribute for him will be held during the Fashion Week.
