Saint International has been making waves in the fashion industry both regionally and internationally. With its annual staging of Styleweek and array of world-recognised models, this fashion empire has contributed to the development of the fashion industry in Jamaica.

Among Saint's long list of elite models are Kibwe McGann, Sheena Moulton and Canise Jackson. Endorsing Jamaica at 50, the fashion house has structured its events this year around nation building.
