Ali Kavoussi, Modeling agent and business executive, with his boyfriend Negrobell
She was forced to sign away the home and business to save their lives, and the family then fled to Miami, where Kavoussi’s father had, unbeknownst to his corrupt former associate, bought a condo. Kavoussi spent the rest of his childhood in Miami until he left for college.Once there he started work toward a degree in broadcast communications, but eventually stopped his studies and focused his efforts instead on breaking into the fashion industry.“I always dreamed of managing models, you know. It’s like my purpose in life.”His business and purpose have taken a hit this year. The pandemic is changing how the fashion industry works and how people live, but this new reality is something Kavoussi embraces personally and professionally.
