Tossa de Mar, Spain native Andres Velencoso began modeling at the suggestion of his mother and sister as a means to earn extra money. However, much to his family's surprise, his career took off and he was suddenly traveling to Milan and Paris for the international collections.
In 2001, he arrived in New York City, and within a matter of days, he began working with industry heavy-hitters such as Bruce Weber, Mikael Jansson, Michael Thompson, Inez & Vinoodh, and Mert & Marcus, among others.
He is considered one of the most elegant male models in the world, and he has appeared on covers for GQ, L’Officiel Hommes, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Arena Homme Plus, Hercules, and ELLE. In 2014, well over a decade into his illustrious career, Andres appeared on the cover of Details magazine as a member of its all-male supermodel line-up. Additionally, the budding actor appeared on screen as one of the main characters in ‘FIN’ (Jorge Torregrossa), alongside Clara Lago, Maribel Verdú, and Daniel Grao.
Andres has starred in advertising campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Chanel Allure, Giorgio Armani, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino and Donna Karan, in addition to Loewe, Trussardi, Zegna, H&M GAP, and Mango, among others.
