When most fashion models hit the runway they normally pray for blue skies, hold the downpours. But for 25-year-old Jonas Bahri conditions couldn’t have been more different. As the Norwegian stepped out to walk the Balenciaga fall 2022 ready-to-wear show — the very first of his career — at this year’s Paris fashion week, he was met with a blustery, apocalyptic scene – a total whiteout. But, ever the true professional he marched on. Fast forward a few months, and he’s still on a bit of a high from the other-worldly experience.


He sits down with Vogue Scandinavia to share his highlights from the show, the items he couldn’t live without, his hopes for the future of fashion and how he plans to celebrate Norway's biggest day 17.mai.
