Becomes first Caribbean model to be selected as face for Calvin Klein campaign
Saint International and Jamaican model Tami Williams has made history, becoming the first Caribbean model to be selected by Calvin Klein (CK) as the face of the brand for its Collection Fall 2015 Campaign.
The 17-year-old Williams now joins such names as Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Natalia Vodionova, and more recently Lara Stone who have been made supermodels by the uber-prestigious Calvin Klein brand.
In global fashion circles the power and significance of a Calvin Klein Collections campaign to a models career is renowned and it is significant that Calvin Klein defines its Fall Collection as “our most prestigious and luxurious brand, setting the tone for elegance and modern sophistication”.
Calvin Klein has often been criticised for the lack of diversity (use of models of colour) on its runway. But for almost 10 consecutive seasons, a Saint Jamaican model has graced the runway for the highly selective brand.
Tami’ Williams’ career is managed by Saint International with international partners such as Elite Models (New York), Storm Models (London), WHY NOT (Milan), (Elite) Paris and Uno Barcelona.
