Saint International Presents: Color Me High Fashion 2012

Saint International Presents: Color Me High Fashion 2012 Last night, Saint International, one of the top Caribbean modeling agencies, hosted a celebration of another successful year in fashion at Devonshire (Devon House, Kingston, Jamaica).

This year, 12 Jamaican models strutted their stuff on the world’s most prestigious catwalks and stand out Shena Moulton landed the September 2012 cover of Elle Italia.

Models and fashion lovers alike walked the red carpet during this evening of fun, food and fashion.

I got a last minute invite from a friend and joined the photographers from the Gleaner and other local media houses to snap some of the arrivals on the red carpet before putting the camera away and enjoying the night.

One of the highlights for the night was meeting one of Jamaica’s top gourmet chefs, Chef Brian Lumley, Chef de Cuisine. In addition to his charming personality and 1000 watt smile, Chef Lumley has an impressive list of accolades including being named Chef of the Year (twice) and commissioned by the Embassy of France to be the personal chef to the French Ambassador. In 2010, he and his younger sister, Stephanie, founded Foodie Focused Limited and have been bringing good food straight to the masses via events like Foodie’s Lyme and Budding Chefs. I’m looking forward to volunteering with them for the Annual Seniors’ Christmas Dinner (more on that here).

Over all it was a great night. I mean who can argue with being surrounded by hot Jamaican male models?!? Not I! And it felt good not being the skinniest person and getting 5 thousands comments about how tiny I am. Now if I can just find who took those pics of me on the red carpet with the models…

Saint International is an  innovator in the fashion scene in Jamaica and the Caribbean. They are responsible for events such as Fashion Face of the Caribbean, Style Week Jamaica, Fashion Block (Mobay) and Model Icon and have groomed Jamaican models for the world wide stage. On December 14th, they will be holding a model call in Kingston, Jamaica. For more information, follow them on Facebook.
