Watching soccer, movies with friends, and sometimes just hanging at the local bar, David Koch is anything but your average male model. From being discovered at a shopping mall in Frankfurt to walking at Fashion Week in Paris in under a week, David Koch is proof that extraordinary things happen every day! 

Koch was born in Alsfeld, Germany on September 27th, 1991. With a whopping 547,000 followers on his Instagram profile alone, David is listed as one of the top 50 most famous male models on social media via models.com. When David is not busy modeling, he spends time at home with his 2 cats.

Walking for Thierry Mugler, Jil Sander, Grigio Armani and Calvin Klein Milan is a dream come true for almost all aspiring male models and Koch, in a very short time has done just that. After a huge Diesel campaign in 2015, David moved to New York to model full time. This proved to be a well thought out move for the then 23 year old model. He landed his first huge campaign with famous photographer, Steven Klein, during that time. Koch has also done impactful campaigns for Hugo boss, Diesel, Dsquared, Dior and Balmain. 

With all of the success that has come his way, he remains a humble man with vision, brimming with hope and showcasing his personality through the hundreds of photographs on his social media. 2018 proved to be a game changer for David after moving to Paris to explore further opportunities. More recently, Koch has done editorials for GQ style and Vogue Italia. Currently, the 27 year old spends most of his time traveling between Paris, Germany and London. With the ladies fangirling over his abs, perfect hair and playboy features, his fan base continues to multiply. The only question now is what’s next in the wonderful world of David Koch.
