Jamaica latest supermodel Kai New has made the coveted Models.com -Hotlist
Touted by models.com as “a stunning Jamaican beauty with presence on and off the runway — a photographer’s dream and a designer’s too”.
Kai Newman’s rise came shortly after being discovered by Saint International CEO Dewight Peters close to her inner-city hometown of Allman Town. She won the Fashion Face of the Caribbean in 2013. The fashion world was awestruck with Newman’s stunning turns and her first season show list included such designers as Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, and many more. She is the youngest Jamaican/Caribbean model to appear on the runway for Gucci.
This catapulted her to immediate superstardom and into the exclusive ranks of Top New Face of the Spring Summer 2014 Season in the Fashion World by models.com.
Such accolades rewarded Newman with the Prime Minister’s Youth Award for International Achievement.
Super excited about his protégé, Saint International CEO Dewight Peters told the Jamaica Observer “Our models are proud ambassadors of their beloved country and continue to work hard — giving of their best, in what is undoubtedly a super competitive industry,”
