Photographer Bruce Weber approached Nacho at a dinner party help by the famous fashion designer, Calvin Klein’s ex-wife, Kelly Klein. Nacho hoped that modeling would help raise awareness of polo. Then in 2000 Nacho began modeling for Ralph Lauren, and eventually became the face of Ralph Lauren Black Label in 2005. In 2009, he also became the face of the World of Polo fragrances, such as Polo Black, Polo Blue and Polo Modern Reserve. In 2005 Nacho also helped in the designing process of the Ralph Lauren collection, Black Watch. Not only did Nacho become the face of Ralph Lauren in 2009, but he also was voted in the issue of Vanity Fair that year the second most handsome man in the world. Even though Nacho has an extremely successful modeling career, the only thing motivating him is to help polo get the publicity it deserves.
