He also hit the runway for Chanel, Dolce&Gabbana, Emporio Armani, John Galliano, Roberto Cavalli, Desigual, Custo and many more.
Tom Ford not only launched Jon’s international model career on a top level, but also his film career. In 2009, Jon starred in Tom Ford’s movie A Single Man.
In an interview with the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, Jon said: “Tom Ford is the fashion designer I feel most attached to. He positioned me as a model. I worked for him for 12 seasons. He taught me how to wear suits and clothes and how to walk on the runway. I learnt from him how to handle masculinity. He also launched me as an actor in his film A Single Man.“
