Determined to become the first male amputee signed to a modelling agency, personal trainer Jack Eyers has already made history as the first male amputee model to walk at New York Fashion Week.

The 26-year-old from Bournemouth, has also walked at London Men’s Fashion Week and Milan and Russia Fashion Weeks, as well as appearing on the cover of Men’s Health UK.
What makes Jack’s rise all the more astonishing is that he was born with a debilitating condition and chose to have his leg amputated aged 16 – and claims it was “the best decision” he ever made.
Despite his modelling success Eyres thinks there’s still a pressing need for designers to use a range of different types of model.
