Hailing from Vancouver BC, Canada, Krow began his once ‘female’ modeling career as a pre-teen, travelling to Asia and around the globe on modelling contracts. Years later after his final trip abroad and fed up, Krow cut off his long ponytail in one snip and returned home to tell his mom he was transgender. With the support of his mother, he started the process of transitioning in 2015.
Having had a successful career in the fashion world, Krow wondered if he would ever be accepted back as an openly transgender male model in the industry. The documentary “Krow’s Transformation” was born, and follows his journey of transitioning and then pursuing a career as a male model. The documentary of Krow’s transition took 3 years to film and originally starting as an educational tool for schools showing every single step along the way of his process, but it soon grew into a much bigger project.
Since then, Krow has gone on to become the #1 Trans Male Model in the world, modelling for Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week, walked for the likes of Balmain and Alexander McQueen as well being the very first transgender male to grace the covers of L’Uomo Vogue in its 50-year history, also the first Trans man on the cover of GQ. Krow has been featured in Dazed and Confused, Vogue Ukraine and Elle Canada to name a few as well as multiple fashion campaigns worldwide.
