Tami Williams Now Part of Victoria’s Secret Legacy
Saint International's Tami Williams has joined the celestial fold of Victoria's Secret (VS). The 19-year-old Jamaican modelling sensation debuted on the world-famous lingerie company's e-commerce platform last month, in a variety of looks that include the brand's new cotton logo strap scoop bralettes, and embellished strap push-up bras for their new campaign.
Shot in New York by photographer Kyle Deleu alongside the much-respected commercial-editorial stylist Gabriela Langone, Williams' Victoria's Secret shoot marks yet another signpost on her ascension to the upper echelons of the fashion industry.
"It's truly an honour to now be considered part of the Victoria's Secret legacy," a humbled, but delighted Williams said. "I'm beyond thrilled to live every model's dream of working with the VS brand. It was a fantastic and fun experience on set working with Kyle and Gabriela, and I am super proud to be breaking new ground in my career," shared the 20-time Chanel runway star, who is ranked among the world's top 50 models. Since her December debut, Williams has been extensively photographed for more images for the lingerie brand, which appeared on the Victoria's Secret online portal this week.
Prime Minister's Youth Award
Just last month, Williams received the Prime Minister's Youth Award for International Achievement, having had an impressive 2018 portfolio that started with a bang with the January release of a Balmain global advertising campaign, and closed with the recent Victoria's Secret reveal. The intervening months saw Williams as a face for the Chanel Beauty make-up launch campaign in August; fronting advertising campaigns for retail power brands Zara and Mango in April and May; and making numerous international fashion-capital-hopping runway appearances for the who's who of global fashion, from Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana to Jean Paul Gaultier and Armani.
