Envoy London’s new Brand Ambassador Mr. England 2017 Jack Eyers excited to visit Sri Lanka
Jack Eyers, the 28-year-old personal trainer and model from Bournemouth, Dorset created history recently as the first-ever amputee to clinch the prestigious Mr. England 2017 title held in Birmingham last month, the preamble to the globally acclaimed Mr. World 2017 contest.
The glamorous event, a celebration of brains and brawn between 22 finalists, was attended by the fashion moguls and crème de la crème of British society and watched by hundreds throughout the United Kingdom on 14th July 2017.
Envoy London, the brand grown in Sri Lanka and which bears the trademark as being the undisputed leader in premium quality menswear was the appointed Official Clothing Partner of the Mr. England 2017 contest, and that too for the second consecutive year.
“We’re proud that a brand from a small country like Sri Lanka has effectively entered the overseas market and are proud to be associated as the Official Clothing Partner of an event of international repute such as this. We’re equally thrilled at the idea of creating a broader perspective in the unprecedented title winner Jack Eyers, who is the first-ever amputee to participate and win in such a highly competitive beauty pageant. He made the impossible possible by winning this title and is an inspiration to thousands of young men and women alike across the world. We look forward to welcoming him to Envoy Mansion in Colombo very soon”, said fashion visionary and creator of the Envoy London brand Fouzul Hameed.
“As the winner of Mr. England, I consider it a privilege to be identified with a truly world-class brand such as Envoy London, which has the most expansive range of styles in men’s haute couture. I am looking forward to my journey to the paradise island, Sri Lanka and grateful for the opportunity to be associated with Envoy London”, Eyers added.
Envoy London’s ethos of thinking beyond the box is boldly displayed in the daring winner who plans to defeat all odds to become Mr. World next year. Rich in experience and industry knowledge, Fouzul Hameed has revolutionised the Envoy London brand which is patronised by the discerning wearer. Envoy London is now a brand registered by the IPO of the UK and the EU.
Mr. England 2017, Jack Eyers lost his leg due to a birth defect but his resilient stance has earned him world repute. Pursuing a dream which seemed unattainable has gained him a title in a hitherto unexplored field and paved the way for anyone with physical challenges. He had hoped to join the fire service when he was younger but realised that he could not as an amputee.
He however found success in other areas and hopes to show that disability does not have to hinder your chances of having a successful life. Working hard to become fit, he became a successful personal trainer and signed with Models of Diversity, and was the first male amputee to walk in the New York Fashion Week. He also took part in the 2012 opening ceremony for the Paralympics and has walked in Milan and Moscow Fashion Weeks.
