History will be made in the Caribbean this June 7-11, When not one, not two, but three Vogue cover girls take the CFW runway at the same time. Never before has all of the three Vogue cover models been featured in the same show in the Caribbean. Vogue models are few and far between and Caribbean Vogue cover girls exist only at Pulse. Three of them will appear together for the first time ever at CFW 2017. Leading the supermodel pack is Pulse and Jamaican legend Lois Samuels, the Caribbean’s first Vogue cover girl and the only talent to have made the magazine’s cover as both model and again designer. She will be joined by another Pulse and Jamaican born icon Janeil Williams, a Vogue cover girl, who that magazine declared to be one of 5 Jamaicans who changed the face of fashion.
The third Vogue cover girl who will take the CFW catwalk in June is none other than the World’s hot model Alicia Burke, arguably the fastest rising model in the World in 2016, her first year in the International market. Alicia was on the cover of November’s Steven Meisel lensed Italian Vogue.
Tickets are available at Pulse, 38a Trafalgar Road, New Kingston and from Total Fashion partners as well as Pulse Model Ambassadors. For complete information call.
