Our Jamaican male models made their mark on the international scene during the autumn-winter season. Six Saint International male models appeared as mannequins on call for some of the world’s most prestigious brands at the Balenciaga show in Milan and Paris. Traditionally, success within the modelling industry is ascribed to women, but with an explosion in male fashion, men are emerging from the shadows and taking their place in the spotlight. History was made when Jahavane O’Connor, Jonny Brown, Kimali Morgan, Winston Lawrence, Omario Matherson, and Val Haughton dominated the runways and made our island proud. Saint International is known for propelling male models from virtual unknowns to fashion stars at lightning speed.
