Patrick Tadros is one of the more popular male models in the Tri-State area. I first witnessed Patrick walk during Philly Small Business Fashion Week. That’s where I witnessed his smooth persona as he walked for the designer.
This year I reached out to Patrick Tadros for an exclusive interview to hear what’s on the young model’s mind. We learned some good things about Patrick and his perspective, outlook, and goals for his career.
Check out my full interview with Patrick Tadros below.
Lateek: What city were you born and raised?
Patrick: I was born and raised in Galloway, NJ.
Lateek: Where does your artistic influence come from and when did you start modeling?
Patrick: I would say that my artistic influence comes from my grandmother who was a model and actress herself. I’m also a painter and have a desire for art. I started modeling in May 2015, where I walked my first runway in the mall.
Lateek: What does true beauty mean to you?
Patrick: Hellen Keller said something once that has always stuck with me. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched — they must be felt with the heart.”
Lateek: What was your most memorable challenge as a Model?
Patrick: My most memorable challenge as a model was changing my body physically, to be fit for taking this modeling career to the next level. To this day I am still working on myself, physically and mentally.
Lateek: Who is your dream photographer to work with?
Patrick: I would love to shoot with photographer Terry Richardson
Lateek: If you had one modeling wish, which runway show would you love to walk the runway for?
Patrick: The Oliver Rousteing, BALMAIN runway show is my dream show.
Lateek: What advice do you have for other aspiring models?
Patrick: My advice for other aspiring models would have to be not to give up. If you believe you have it, then you should go for it. I won’t be giving up until I get to where I want to be.
Lateek: What upcoming event or fashion show are you looking forward to?
Patrick: In the most recent NYFW, I walked in my largest production yet. Style Fashion Week at the Theater in Madison Square Gardens. I also am looking forward to walking in Philly Fashion Week.
Lateek: Are you signed to a modeling agency?
Patrick: I am not currently signed with an agency.
Lateek: What is your biggest quality that makes you stand out from other models?
Patrick: Anyone would say that my hair would be the trait that stands out most. I like to think that my diversity is the biggest quality that stands out from the rest.
Lateek: What is your dream magazine you would love to be featured in for a photoshoot & layout?
Patrick: My dream magazine would be between something as large as GQ or Vulkan Magazine which just happens to be one I personally favor.
Lateek: What modeling work are you most proud of & why?
Patrick: I am most proud of the fact that my work shows my consistency and dedication to my craft. I can only work towards getting the right people to notice my efforts to get my career to fully flourish.
Lateek: If you had to describe yourself in two words, what would they be?
Patrick: To describe me in two words would be unique and motivated.
Thank you again for the opportunity. Let me know if you need anything further from me. If you want more or different selection of photos, please let me know.
Final Thoughts: Patrick was a very interesting interview, unique from other interviews I have done. He knows exactly what he wants a career path and stays consistent with his work ethic.
I and UrbSocietyMag wish Patrick the best of success with his modeling career and look forward to seeing him at upcoming shows.
