Naiquan ‘Magnate’ Dimetrius
Model/Actor/Digital Content Producer
Long term: To be one of the first Black American man to cover Italian, African and American Vogue at the same time. I’m grateful that men like Renauld White, Tyson Beckford, Rob Evans and Keith Carlos (just to name a few) have paved the way. I want to build off of their legacies.
Short term: To get signed to an agency.
Sleep, drinking Bubble Tea, Googling the benefits of random foods. I’m really into healing crystals these days too. I’ve always envisioned myself as a glowed up fashion warrior with a lot of Ankh’s and fly afro-garb. Like a fashion version of Kendrick or Mos Def…my bad Yasiin Bey. (laughs)
Favorite Vacation Destination(s):
I’ve only been out of the country vacationing once…to Japan. I always feel at home in Chicago. That’s my second favorite city.
What does a Quintessential Gentleman mean to you:
A Quintessential Gentleman is someone who uses the gifts that they’ve identified within themselves to make others brighter. A man who’s not shy to express themselves, who knows that the best moments are in the present and who’s so confident in his abilities that he doesn’t fear asking for help or accepting advice to make himself better.
