Continuing her undisputed run as one of Jamaica's most successful international model to date, Saint International supermodel Tami Williams registered her presence on the Chanel runway for a record 16th time in Paris, this time for the brand's resort collection last Thursday.

Williams debuted on the highly acclaimed Chanel runway for the label's Spring/Summer collection in 2015 and immediately elevated herself to being a favourite of the fashion house's creative director and industry icon, Karl Lagerfeld. Since then, the Jamaican teen model sensation has reached a level never seen by a Jamaican model with her 'sweet 16' on the Chanel runway.

"Chanel has always been one of the brands I wanted to work with from I first started modelling. It is an absolute pleasure and honour to have worked with them so many times. Karl is a genius. The team is absolutely wonderful, and I am very humbled and grateful for this," gushes the Jamaican supermodel.

Chanel's Resort 2019 presentation, hosted at the Grand Palais, featured the label's typical elaborate set, which, this time around, was a life-size cruise ship. Chanel staples were in full swing - pearl necklaces, tweed suiting in all of its changing silhouettes, and statement accessories with a twist.

Williams's recent appearance was among a star-studded cast that included supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid. The Jamaican superstar will hit Cannes for an appearance before returning home for Saint International's Style Week, which will run from May 16 to 20.
