Kit Butler

BACK TO HIS ROOTS


Kit Butler runway shows, back in January 2015, and it is still one of his most memorable assignments. At the Silverlining Fashion Show in Oxford, Kit, then 16, walked down the catwalk with cerebral palsy sufferer Mary Jayne Allen, who was taking her first steps in public for a decade.
She is still walking to this day. Soon after the charity bash in his home town, Kit’s career
took off. He went on to open Coach’s men’s show and appeared in editorials for Wonderland and Vogue Italia soon after. He has since walked for Balmain, Cerruti, Dsquared2, DAKS, Ralph Lauren, Dirk Bikkembergs, Les Hommes, Moschino, Versace, Zegna and Hussein Chalayan. His major campaigns include Church’s, Ferragamo, Stone Island, Emporio Armani, Polo Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss. Now 19, Kit has returned to his modelling roots and this season will walk again at the Silverlining show.
