Luis Paredes was born and raised in Harlem, New York with his mother, father, and five siblings. At a young age, he and his family would travel a lot due to his father’s work. These travels would help cultivate and nurture his independence while adjusting to new experiences. In his early teens, skateboarding became a way for him to build new relationships and friendships. Luis has a huge passion for science, mathematics, the arts, and video gaming. Luis was discovered in the heart of Soho to later catch the attention of top Photography duo, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, to model in the SS20 Versace campaign. For Luis, this is just the beginning as he’s just getting started.
