UA student and twin brother walk the Gucci fashion show


 Bartel.jpegJust like out of a movie script, Nate Bartel, a freshman computer science major from Twinsburg, and his brother Jack, who attends the University of Cincinnati, were literally picked out of a crowd and offered the opportunity to model for an international designer.

The Twinsburg high school graduates attended the annual Twins Days Festival in August 2022 — a celebration of biological twins — held in Twinsburg, Ohio. While at the festival, they were approached bya talent scout from Gucci, who offered to fly them out to Milan for tryouts where hundreds of other twins were auditioning. The brothers made the cut, being one of only three sets of Americans to model alongside 68 other twins in Milan, and walked the runway for the “Gucci’s Twinsburg” fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.

Although the two hadn’t dressed alike since they were kids, they were happy to wear matching red metallic outfits on the runway.
