Mohammad Ali Subhani was born and raised in Lahore. He is now modeling for top fashion brands in the UK, where he’s known as Champ Imi.
He hails from the Data Ganj Baksh in Lahore. Champ Imi went to London when he was 18 to get a diploma in administrative management. On Friday, he told SAMAA TV that he was scouted by a modeling agency at 18. He hasn’t looked back ever since. I never thought I’d be among the big names in the international fashion industry, but it all worked out on its own, said Subhani.
“I was different because of my brown skin so I had to struggle more compared to other models,” he added.
He’s about to make his movie debut in Rose and Katie. Once the coronavirus spread slows in London, he will work on a couple more projects that he has already signed. He, however, did not reveal the names of other projects he has signed because his contracts bar him from making the details public. Subhani has modeled for L’Oreal, and Toni and Guy, and appeared in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and GQ. The model has also worked with Coca Cola, ID Magazine, and Hunger Magazine.
