JAMAICAN MODEL ON THE RISE
Last week I stumbled across an article about a Jamaican up and coming model, by the name of Alexia Palmer. She was discovered in “Pulse’s 2011 Caribbean Model Search,” and since then has made some impressive strides in the industry. She has been heavily scouted by all the major modeling agencies in New York City, and is now signed to Trump Management. Magazine editors are also taking notice, and at 17 years old, she has been featured in “Teen Vogue.” How dope is that?!
Since discovering Alexia, I started to wonder how many other Jamaican beauties do we have doing their thing in the fashion industry, and I was pleasantly surprised and also embarrassed to see that we have quite a fleet! Embarrassed, because I can’t believe that this missed me! Names such as: Nadine Willis, Nell Robinson, Jaunel McKenzie, Gaye McDonald, Sasha-Gaye Hunt, and now ALEXIA PALMER! Keep doing your thing ladies, so proud of y’all!
With Love, Shonique D. Thomas.
