Through sub zero weather, SAINT's Jamaican models have remained red hot as they debuted their international super stars at New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 designer collections. The biannual New York Fashion Week began on Thursday, February 7, and ran until Wednesday, February 13. Their star roster of catwalkers included Tami Williams, Naki Depass, Barbra-Lee Grant and Romaine Dixon, who thoroughly impressed major designers and brands within the Big Apple.

Together, SAINT’s fashion stars rocked the runways at more than 20 designer shows. Supermodel Tami Williams, opened her Fashion Week at fashion legend Ralph Lauren’s show at Madison Avenue in New York City and closed at the all-important Marc Jacobs show at Park Avenue Armory. It was a homecoming of sorts at the Jacobs’ show as Williams first strutted for the iconic American designer’s Fall/Winter 2014 show when she began her international modelling career at 14 years old.

Meanwhile, Naki Depass, who had seven shows on her NYFW resume, burnished her rising model status by opening and closing the Tibi show. Depass also made catwalk turns for Michael Kors and Helmut Lang, and joined her Saint peer Williams among the model cast at the Prabal Gurung show.

Repping black-green-and-gold, Saint‘s New York-based model Barbra-Lee Grant made appearances for six designers including Badgley Mischka, Dennis Basso, Christian Cowan and Burnett for the weeklong fashion event.

Also taking NYC by storm was Saint’s Romaine Dixon. The Jamaican male fashion star made the cut for six designer shows, including top fashion labels Boss and Helmut Lang, and menswear brands Victor Li and Robert Geller.
