Model Fashion Icon turned designer, Adnan Taletovich joined the best talents in the fashion industry in Paris to showcase his label Adventuryx first Spring/Summer 2014 Ready-To-Wear Collection during Fashion Week Fall September 28, 2013.

Taletovich became a household name during the early 1990's and was photographed by some of the world’s greatest fashion photographers such as Mario Testino, Karl Lagerfeld, Albert Watson and Arthur Elgort. Adnan appeared in hundreds of magazines, automobile commercials, advertising campaigns for luxury fashion houses and fragrance brands like Paco Rabanne, (XS Eau de Toilette Pour Homme with model Brandi Quinones) and Lacoste, (Eau de Toilette Lacoste pour Homme).

Adnan was born in Bosnia, 3 months later, together with his parents, moved to Croatia where he was raised. At the age of 8 started Judo lessons, becoming a few years later Junior Champion. But in 1990, while studying law, to become a lawyer, he wanted to see what was "behind the hill" and left to Italy to start his modeling career; being in Rome and Milano, he did a few small campaigns. Searching for more, one day, coming out from one of the agencies where he'd been turn down for not having a "good" portfolio, a model-agent saw him, and offered to fly him to France.

Once in Paris, Adnan did a few photo tests, and after designer Thierry Mugler saw the new portfolio, offered him to be on his fashion show with some of the biggest model stars of the world, like, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Christy Turlington and others. In the audience, there were some of Valentino's "staff", inviting him to do a campaign back in Italy, things didn't work out as he had planned, so, he went back to Paris, where Karl Lagerfield heard about him, and offered him his perfume and clothes campaign, worked for him for 3 years, while doing big campaigns and fashion shows for designers like: Versace, Valentino, Jean Paul Gautier, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Paco Rabanne, Oliver Strelli, Claude Montana, Dirk Bikkembergs and others.

The close friendship and work with Karl Lagerfeld for his men’s clothing campaign and “Photo KL” perfume was the crucial experience. During numerous photo shootings for Vogue magazine he learned from Lagerfeld about style, lighting, and composition—the three most important factors to create beautiful high fashion image.

Lagerfeld influence helped Adnan make his decision to move to New Yor
