One of the most well-known fashion brands, Polo Ralph Lauren, bought on a new face for their latest ad campaign. His name is Darius Williams and ladies… you won’t be able to take your eyes off of this one. Darius has also modeled for John Bartlett, Nike, Sperry Topsider, and Verizon ad campaigns. It’s been reported that Darius has worked with leading underwear brand Hanes, recently as well. For more information check out the “Q&A” below between myself and Darius.
Ashley Dior: Darius, what was your reaction when you received the news that you were the "face" of Polo's Fall/Winter men's campaign?
Darius: I felt like a huge success. Not only for myself but for my people who are behind me.
Ashley Dior: What did you expect to happen next for you after obtaining your Fine Arts degree at Northwestern State of Louisiana?
Darius: After obtaining my bachelor’s degree, I originally planned to attend grad school immediately.
Ashley Dior: I've heard that you had the opportunity, during your last semester in college, to attend castings for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, how was that experience for you? What designer's looks were you walking on the runways that week?
Darius: My first fashion week experience was impacting. I did not walk any shows. I was shown what it takes to produce a show from start to finish.
Ashley Dior: So at the moment, you're studying acting, is that correct? What sparked your interest in being an actor?
Darius: Yes, acting is a venture that I’ve picked up. I grew up interested as I was constantly reminded that I should put my lovable, but fun personality to use. And also the James Bond 007 movies add fuel to the fire. Lol.
