Saint International's global superstar, Tami Williams, was a vision of high-fashion glamour as she traversed the 'Chanel Airlines' terminal at the still-talked-about extravaganza that was Karl Lagerfeld's 2016 Spring/Summer Collections.

In her first 18 months of modelling, Williams is the face of several top fashion brands simultaneously: Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, and Calvin Klein Collections. She opened the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2016 collections at New York Fashion Week, and this last show season, experienced her lifelong dream of walking the runways of the legendary Chanel showcase!

Saint boss Deiwght Peters was on hand in the fashion capital to witness the historic stride of his protege.

He told Flair, "To see Tami's dream come true was highly emotional as I recall at 14 years old, she told me that her dream would be to walk for the Chanel show."

He also revealed that her Paris agency, Elite (which also represents Saint star Kai Newman), was very strategic in ensuring the confirmation for the Chanel booking.

"I absolutely love the Chanel brand and always wanted to walk for them during the Paris Fashion Week. I adore Karl Lagerfeld and someday want him as one of my fashion mentors," revealed the fashion teen queen.

This past season (showcasing the Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-To-Wear collections), Tami walked a highly selective 27 runway shows in New York, Milan and Paris. This season, she skipped London.Tami's career is managed by Deiwght Peters of Saint International, in collaboration with a cadre of the world's top model managers, including Elite New York and Paris, STORM London, and WHY NOT Milan.
