Tami Williams is the first Caribbean model to be selected by Calvin Klein. The global fashion model has the face of the brand for its collection fall 2015 campaign. No black models has done the collection campaign since supermodel Iman 33 years ago.
The 17-year old now joins such names as Christy Turlington, Kate Moss and most recently Lara Stone which have been made supermodels by the upper prestigious Calvin Klein brand.
Calvin Klein has often been criticized for the lack of diversity use of models of color on its runway but for almost 10 consecutive season Jamaican model has graced the runways for the highly selective brand.
As a fellow Jamaican I am proud to see one of my peers grace the runway and that Calvin Klein start using models of color more regularly. I would love to hear your thoughts on this – please like and comment below.
